Break the ice in no time, working together to give clues to someone on the opposing team.

Reverse Charades
Reverse Charades is a race against the clock

For those who enjoy charades, but prefer the acting out portion.

Charades has been around for decades, but this app puts a spin on the idea of a group guessing one person's acting. A group acts out the clue as a whole and a single person on the opposing team takes a guess. The fun with Reverse Charades is that you get clues that are more complex and require teamwork. From 'Honeymoon' to 'Parade,' Reverse Charades will break the ice in no time.

Why we love it

It's a truly unique spin on the idea of charades, and takes the game to a whole new level. You'll have to work together to provide clues to the opposing team member, who has to guess what you're acting out. It's fun the whole family can enjoy.

For those who...

  • Like charades
  • Want a fun party game

Not for those who...

  • Don't enjoy acting out clues
  • Aren't fans of having fun and laughs
