Reverse Charades {Review and Giveaway}

I’m sure you are all familiar with Charades- the game where one person acts out a word for their teammates to guess. While regular Charades is fun, Reverse Charades will have you laughing until your sides hurt. Imagine a team full of people acting out the same word {but not able to talk or communicate with each other} while one person attempts to guess what the word is. The team has 60 seconds to act out as many words as they can. Words like: synchronized swimming, piñata, paparazzi, dogpile, leapfrog, pillow fight or CPR. My first one was Dentist. Imagine acting that one out as a team when nobody knows who is the dentist and who is the patient because you can’t discuss it! Take a look at the video above for a demonstration of this game. It’s hilarious!

If you are still looking for some Christmas gift ideas I really think anyone 6 and over would love this game! Reverse Charades would make a great party game and the Junior edition of the game is wonderful for family bonding time.
