Chasing Away the Chill with Reverse Charades!



Hey Neighbors!

Remember Reverse Charades?  Well here we get to share them again, but this time it includes a giveaway!  Reverse Charades is seriously so much fun!  We took it to Chicago with us this last trip.  So, while the boys were playing football and basketball, the girls and ladies all gathered together and played Reverse Charades.  Talk about chasing away the chill!  All the acting and giggling helped keep us warm!  Seriously this is a great game to play inside while the winter weather spreads it's chill outside.



To play Reverse Charades you divide up into two teams.  Each team takes a turn.  Team One chooses one person to guess, while all the others try to act out the word.  One person from Team Two flips the cards, which have the words/phrases to act out on them.  When they get one right, they move on to the next card.  There is a timer to use, or you can set your own time limit.  Once Team One is done, they swap places and Team Two takes over.  The team that guesses the most words/phrases in the pre-set time limit wins.  Now the only other rule is no talking among the players acting out the words/phrases.  We personally set down that you can not use props.  Make your own rules and have fun!  The cards come with over 700 words/phrases.  I am waiting for additional card sets!




Wait until you play!  I mean how hard is it to act out "underwear", "New York City", "javelin", Cow  tipping", and so many more.  Just the looks on their faces when they see what they have to act out is hysterical!



 

There is also an app for your iPhone or Droid that have more words/phrases.  So, when you run out of cards, download the app!

The entire family enjoys playing Reverse Charades!  The family that came and visited us just before New Years had so much fun playing, that they had already told everyone there about the game.  I know my neighbors will enjoy this game, not just to Chase Away the Chill of winter, but year round!

Want a chance to play Reverse Charades?  One neighbor will win their own game of Reverse Charades!
