Charades is a great family game for the holidays; some added fun at Christmas and Halloween! Although it can be hard to think of the best Charades to do, so I created this Charades Generator to help come up with great words and ideas. You can generate words of different difficulty levels. You can also generate titles of movies, TV shows and books (when you select a different topic list it will automatically load the new list). Choose the hard or very hard words when playing with adults and the easy words when playing the game with kids. The movie, TV show and book titles are for all ages.
There are many ways to play Charades, but most are similar, so I will go over the basics here. The objective of the game is to guess what object, person, character, movie, TV show or book your team mate is acting out (without talking). You start by having two teams consisting of two team members. Then you can generate charades from the generator below and write them all down on different pieces of paper then put them in a hat. Now that you have all your charade ideas and two teams, your team member can grab a charade out of the hat and act it out to you until you give the correct word, name or phrase. If the one minute timer runs out and you still have not guessed the correct answer, you lose the round and the other team gets to play their turn.Some Basic Rules of Charades:
- When you are acting out your charade, you must not speak or make sounds
- There should be a round time limit, usually about one minute
- Words and names should be known by at least three others playing
- Rules should be clarified before the game starts as there are many ways to play Charades
Did You Know? The game of Charades was most likely created in France during the 1700s.
