Setup

Split into teams of three or more.

Be creative - brown vs. blue eyes, right vs. left-handed, dark vs. milk chocolate lovers.


Object of the Game

Decide on a number of rounds or a point target to win. One word guessed correctly = 1 point.



Game Play

Each team has one minute to guess as many words as possible. If the acting team doesn't like a word, they can pass - but only one pass per round.

Each team selects a guesser (everyone gets a turn guessing) and the rest of the team acts out the words. The other team holds the word cards for only the actors to see and flips the enclosed timer.

Shhh! Not a peep among the team members acting. You lose a point if you speak or "mouth" any words to each other or the guesser. The use of objects (or even people) in the room is definitely permitted.

Ready, Set, Go! Tally up points each round on a scorepad.



End of the Game

The first team to your target wins ... unless, of course, your team is losing - then you can always suggest extending "one more round"!
