You’ll separate the group into two teams. Team A will choose an actor and that person will randomly choose one charade from the bucket. That person will then have one minute to act it out for their team. There is no talking allowed in charades! If Team A guesses the correct answer in one minute, then they win a point. If they don’t guess it correctly, Team B is allowed to take one guess at the correct answer. If they get it right, they get one point. Now Team B takes a turn choosing an actor and guessing on the next charade. The game continues until you run out of charades or until everyone has had a chance to be the actor.
