How to Play Charades

Remember, the goal of the game is to have fun. Don't be too strict with the rules and always encourage creativity!

That being said, here are the official rules of Charades.

  1. Divide into Teams: Split the group into two teams. Teams should be of approximately equal size.
  2. Create the Clues: Each team creates multiple clues for the other team to act out. Clues could be movies, books, people, or even random phrases. Each clue is written on a piece of paper and folded to keep it secret.
  3. Decide the Order: Decide which team will act first. That team will select a clue from the other team's pool.
  4. Act Out the Clue: One person from the acting team should pick a clue and act it out without speaking or making any sounds. They can use gestures, body language, or props to convey the clue.
  5. Guess the Clue: The rest of the acting team tries to guess the clue based on the actions. They have a predetermined time limit (usually around 2 minutes) to guess correctly.
  6. Score Points: If the team guesses correctly within the time limit, they score a point. If not, no points are awarded.
  7. Alternate Turns: Teams alternate turns until all clues have been acted out and guessed (or not guessed). The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Playing Charades Without the Official Game

You can use the same rules as the official game, while using our Charades Generator instead to find ideas. One of the best reasons to play this way, or using a combination of the gameboard and our generator is because you will never run out of words. We add new words and topics regularly.
