How to Play Charades for Teens

This easy-to-play game can be broken down into a few simple steps. 

First, split into two (or more) even teams. This is a good time to decide who is going to be the scorekeeper and who is going to be the timekeeper for the whole group. 

Once teams are divided, you then decide which team is going first (can be decided by a coin toss, craziest socks, rock paper scissors, or any other method you choose).

Next, the winning team picks their first representative (the actor). He or she will take a card from the pile. Once the timer begins, the actor will act out whatever is on the card. During this time the actor’s teammates are trying to guess the word on the card. The actor CANNOT use words, mouth anything, or point to anything in the room in order to help their team. 

Tip for the actor: it’s best to indicate the number of words you are having your team guess (you can do this by holding up the correct number of fingers after the timer starts). It’s also good to indicate the category you’re acting out (movie, school, person, etc.)

Before the actor begins the group must decide how much time should be given for each round. Rounds typically last for 1-2 minutes. The time starts at the beginning of each round if the guessing team can guess the correct word on the card before the time runs out they get a point. If not, they don’t get any points. 

The teams take turns, alternating who the actor is each time so that everyone can have a turn. 

The game can end in a number of ways. For example, when all the cards run out, when a team reaches a certain number of points, after playing for a certain amount of time, and so on. Decide before you start how the game will end. Whoever has the most points at that time is the winner.
