How to Play “Charades” for adults

Playing “Charades” is simple! All you need to do is divide the group into two teams. During a team’s turn, a player from the playing team volunteers to be an actor who will act out the charade without verbally communicating.

As a volunteer, you need to express the word or phrase through physical gestures and motions. Your teammates must guess what you are trying to express within a set amount of time, usually a minute or two. Once your team guesses correctly, they get a point!

After your turn is over, the other team takes their turn with a volunteer from their group. The game is completed once you reach a certain number of points, a time limit, or all the ideas have been guessed.

The key to a good game is choosing fun and creative charades for your team, so make sure you come up with some unique ideas! Get some inspiration from our list of ideas below for your next game night.
