Short description

This is a popular game where you act out words similar to a phrase your teammates should guess. Most important: act a lot so they have something to laugh!


This is a classic game with which most people are quite familiar. Charades is a game where one player acts out a word or phrase, or sometimes a movie title, by miming similar-sounding words. The other players must guess the original word or phrase.
Tip: it is more fun when you act more than you speak, so your teammates have something to laugh! :)
