Dumb Charades Game Ideas

Who doesn't love the very popular game of Dumb Charades!?  Whether it's the immense effort in performing or racking brains out to understand someone else's actions, both are just as much fun - a game that's easy to organize, requires almost no props, and a favorite of most!

Movies are the most popular for Dumb Charades.  Acting out a song is very challenging.

For now, here's a variation to this game.

Instead of  using movies, you can use professions to enact and play; all other rules of the game remain the same.  You may also use your native language as the translation and probably give a bonus point to those who know the right word!

How to Play Dumb Charades?
-  Form teams and in each round have 1 representative ready to enact the movie/song/other variations.

- One way to play is the other team discusses and gives a challenge to the representative to act out in front of his/her team while keeping mum and performing only actions until the team guesses correctly.


-  It's a good idea to discuss with team members on what common sign languages the team is supposed to use so that the actions are better understood.  For example,  if the actor touches his/her earlobe - the team members will know that the following word "sounds like" the action.  You can also use thumbs up & down to represent something.  Come up with your own signs!
-  Another method is that the movie/song/other variations are prepared beforehand and written on slips of paper that the representative picks up and performs, this way no team knows what it is and everyone can participate.

-  Points may be given to those who guess the maximum correctly.  It's good to have some small prize(s) for the winners; it's a nice incentive!
