Holiday Gift Guide Reverse Charades Junior (And a Giveaway)

Reverse Charades is hilarious, unforgettable group fun—the perfect party and family game, this is a game the whole family will love! Here is a little more information about Reverse Charades from the website:

Reverse Charades is a hilarious twist on charades—a team competition where the entire team acts out as many words as one person can guess in 60 seconds. "Sedarahc" is "charades" spelled backwards

I was very fortunate to be able to review a Reverse Charades Junior:

Reverse Charades Junior.  fun, different and unforgettable game award-winning family/party games, Reverse Charades and Reverse Charades Junior especially designed for kids and kids at heart ages 6+

Now how does this new twist on the old party game charades work? Well, you go into teams of three or more. Decide on a number of rounds or a point target to win. If you have 1 word guessed correctly that equals 1 point. Each team has one minute to guess as many words as possible. If the acting team doesn’t like a word, they can pass – but only one pass per round.
Each team selects a guesser (everyone gets a turn guessing) and the rest of the team acts out the words. The other team holds the word cards for only the actors to see and flips the enclosed timer. Don’t talk!!!  Not a peep from the team members acting. 

You lose a point if you speak or “mouth” any words to each other or the guesser. Use of objects (or even people) in the room is definitely permitted. Ready, set, go! Tally up points each round on a score pad. The first team to your target wins (unless, of course, your team is losing – then you can always suggest extending “one more round”)!

Now dosent that sound like fun? Something different that is for sure! With words like: synchronized swimming, piñata, paparazzi, dogpile, leapfrog, pillow fight or CPR.  This game is just plain fun! Since we have the juniors edition it is a little more basic and made for kids ages 6 and up. My daughter is just the right age for this game, she and her little friends will just love this!

We love family game night and we especially love to play games when we have big get togethers. We were able to play the Reverse Charades Junior game at my daughter’s birthday party. What is better than a game at a party? This zany game was loads of fun. We set up the game in the middle of the parlor and set off to have fun! The girls were giggling the entire time, we split up into three groups with some adults and some kids. You should have seen the kids they were pretty good, and we all had a great time. The kids did try to mouth the answers a bit, and it took them a little while to understand the rules but they caught on.  Much better than pin the tail on the donkey as a party game!

My daughters group won the game, so she was happy about that, overall I would recommend this great game. If the Junior version is not for you , they have new for 2012 THREE NEW expansion word packs including:

Girls’ Night In Edition—perfect for that pink gift or girls-only parties with fun women-themed words like: mani-pedi, blind date, Charlie’s Angels, shaving legs, aerobics and soccer mom.  A portion of the sales of this edition goes to support breast cancer research.
