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.

Bonus: Sick and Twisted Charades

Love board games and Charades? This is your lucky day! This game gives you both of the best worlds and delivers you saucy, suggestive, and downright obscene words that will surely get your mind out of the gutter and your friends rolling on the floor!

Here are the rules on how to play the game:

  1. Separate players into two teams.
  2. Each team should pick their color, either green or pink, to determine which side of the cards the team will be playing.
  3. Shuffle the cards and tiles, and pile them facedown in between the two teams.
  4. Agree on which team gets to guess first and let them decide on their first actor.
  5. Once everyone is ready, start the timer!
  6. The actor starts to get cards from the pile and acts out the word or phrase without using any sounds or written words.
  7. The team gets to collect all cards of the words that were correctly guessed by their team.
  8. An actor’s turn does not end when the time runs out. When the timer runs out, the opposing team can throw a ball to the actor and if he dodges it, he can continue acting.
  9. Every card guessed entitles the team to a tile. After every turn, they can choose which tile to keep for that round. The tiles can be used for the advantage of the team. Just follow what’s written on them.
  10. The game ends when all cards are drawn and the team with the most cards wins!

This game is totally best for your next adult party or get-together with your not-so-proper friends. What are you waiting for? Get a copy of Sick and Twisted Charades now!
