Reverse Charades Junior Edition Review and Giveaway

Whenever my extended family gets together, we always play games. Knockout, card games, board games, if it's around someone will play it. I have a big family and at extended family functions there could be 50 + people. A great game to play with large groups of people is Reverse Charades or the Reverse Charades Junior Edition.

In the Junior Edition teams have 60 seconds to act out (without speaking) as many words as one person can guess. The twist being that the whole team acts out the clues for one person.

I love this idea for two reasons. First off, lots of people look silly together as opposed to one person looking silly while everyone else watches. Secondly, the person guessing has to watch everyone and then try to filter all of the different actions into something that makes sense.

Included with the game is 360 double sided word cards (720 total words), and a sand timer. The words in the junior edition are kid friendly, and range anywhere from McDonalds to Tinker Bell.

To Play -
  • Split into teams of three or more. Be creative – brown vs. blue eyes, right vs. left-handed, dark vs. milk chocolate lovers. Decide on a number of rounds or a point target to win.
  • 1 word guessed correctly = 1 point. Each team has one minute to guess as many words as possible. If the acting team doesn’t like a word, they can pass – but only one pass per round.
  • Each team selects a guesser (everyone gets a turn guessing) and the rest of the team acts out the words. The other team holds the word cards for only the actors to see and flips the enclosed timer.
  • Shhh! Not a peep among the team members acting. You lose a point if you speak or “mouth” any words to each other or the guesser. Use of objects (or even people) in the room is definitely permitted.
  • Ready, set, go! Tally up points each round on a scorepad. The first team to your target wins (unless, of course, your team is losing – then you can always suggest extending “one more round”)!
To Buy - The Reverse Charades junior Edition retails for $23.99 and is recommended for children ages 6 and up.
