What is Reverse Charades

Reverse charade is a twist on the classic charades game where a team acts out words for one person to guess.

Aim: Guess as many words as you can within a time limit, promoting teamwork and quick-thinking in a fun setting.

Reverse Charades Rules

  1. Get everyone into teams of 4-5 folks.
  2. Pick one teammate to guess while the rest act it out.
  3. Each team gets a go, with 2 minutes per round to act out as many words as they can.
  4. Words or phrases come from a set list that all teams can use.
  5. Score a point for each right guess.
  6. Team with the most points at the end wins!
