Charades, one of the most entertaining of all games. The best idea to stir up everyone's mood and energy while attending a party is, playing charades. Assort all the ideas you have in your mind and come up with variety of topics ranging from movies, cartoons, music, etc. in order to make this pantomime game intensely enjoyable and thrilling. You can play this game even with your kids or when you have gathered with your friends. We have explained you some really cool ideas to make the game funny.

Basic Rules

The more the number of people, the better the fun. Form two groups with equal number of participants. Then you call one of your opponent team members and disclose the theme he is supposed to enact before everyone. You can also jot down the charades themes on cards/chits and present it to the tagged person. Remember it's a mime show and therefore, you have to explain everything through gestures within a specific time. If your opponent team recognizes the act and gives the right answer, then they get points. The next chance will be yours. The game continues this way.

Bonus Rounds

You can twist the basic ways of playing the game and incorporate new themes to boost up your self-expression skills. Include a bonus round for the other team when its opponent fails to give the right answer. Keep the charades topics little tough for bonus rounds. For example, you can pick up famous dialogs from movies and shows, quotes from books and renowned people, historical events, proverbs, etc. The topic will be given to the tagged person of your team by your opponents. Discuss the underlying meaning behind your gestures and body movements with your team members before acting it out. If your opponent team loses the chance and you answer correctly in the bonus round, then your points double.

Make it Easy for Kids

Kids get bored very easily if you fail to entertain them. Therefore, you should simplify the rules to make charades interesting for kids. Kids are fond of songs, cartoons and the rhymes they learn. What you can do is purchase masks of cartoon characters and soft toys. These things will serve as a hint for them. Allow them to dance, enact and express in their own way (expect speaking out). Draw images of animals, cartoon characters, spaghetti, smoothies, cakes, pizzas, chocolates, and other things they are utterly fond of on the charades cards. This enhances the visual appeal of the objects which further absorbs them in the game. They start liking the game, make merry and act diligently to win the prize.
