5. Classic Charades


We all know how this works, don’t we? But just in case:

 

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • a stopwatch or other timing device
  • a notepad and pencil for scorekeeping
  • blank slips of paper
  • two baskets or other containers for the slips

 

HOW TO PLAY:

Divide the players in two teams. Give the same amount of slips of paper to each team and the players in each team need to write titles or quotes from either movies, songs, tv shows or books. Once everybody finished writing on the slips, each team should put them in a different basket. Now the game can start!

Team A will have one player begin picking a slip from Team B’s basket. This will have to “Act out” a phrase without speaking, while the other members of your team try to guess what the phrase is. The objective is for your team to guess the phrase as quickly as possible.
