WHAT ARE CHARADES?
If you are new to charades let me tell you a little about the game.
Charades are basically a guessing game. One person will act out a word or a short phrase. They will do motions and movements and try to convey what word or phrase they are portraying without using any words.
The other players will try to guess what the person is acting out.
This can be played in large or small groups.
The objective is to the team that guesses the word or phrase first and gets the most points for right guesses.
WHAT IS THE TIME LIMIT FOR CHARADES?
Charades is a game you can make up the rules as you go!
Some versions say that there is a 3 minute time limit for the team to guess the word/phrase. That should be plenty of time and if they can’t get it in 3 minutes they probably won’t ever be able to get it!
You can always adapt the game and make your time limit 1 or 2 minutes if desired.
WHAT IS PROHIBITED IN CHARADES?
The main hard and fast rules in charades surround what the person acting out the words can and can’t do.
Here are some basic items that are prohibited in charades:
- the person acting cannot speak or make any sounds
- the actor cannot mouth words
- it is against the rules for the actor to point to objects in the room that could be clues for their team
- the actor cannot use sign language to spell the word they are acting out
The fun part of charades is that it is simple to do holiday versions for all the different holidays during the year.
