Editor's Review

The "reverse" twist to this Charades game it that instead of one actor performing for a group of guessers, the group acts out the clue for a lone guesser. It's still a mime show (even between actors), but imagine the dynamics and new possibilities when a group of actors can interact, especially since in this game the objects in a room can be used as props. NOTE: If you prefer group guessing, go for it. We enjoyed the game best just alternating the acting and guessing between groups (no score-keeping). 

Tester Reviews

This is a really fun version of charades, except some of the cards are hard to understand and act out. Even I couldn't figure out some of the things myself. But I always love playing this game. It's better with more people, but you can play it with 4 people. Matana (F9)

We brought it up to the cottage to play with extended family and all ages enjoyed the 'twist' to playing regular charades. You need a fair number of people to play this game; however, when it has only been our immediate family, we have used the cards to play 'regular' charades. Liz Harding, Parent

Manufacturer's Description

Reverse Charades is a hilarious twist on a classic stand-by (where one person acts out words for the team to guess-boring)! With Reverse Charades, the entire team has 60 seconds to act out as many words as one person can guess. It’s a fast-paced, fiercely fun team competition that’s an absolute riot with families, work teams, school groups, party-goers or among a few close friends. But be warned…you’re in for big and dangerous doses of fun! Game Details: 8” x 8” x 3” boxed game: 576 game cards, 60 second sand timer. Players required: 6+ for ages 6 and older
