Last year I was in Graduate School and student teaching and working…and I let the family fend for themselves for a good 3 months. One of the sad results of my being so busy is that my son turned 9 and did not have a birthday party with friends. This year I had to make it up to him. I told him anything goes and he chose a 15 boy sleepover party! (oh Lord help me) That is a LOT of sweaty, screaming, hyper ten year olds to entertain from 6:00 pm until 8 am the next day. We did the normal games and snacks and a movie too. But to keep them all genuinely entertained at the same time? I have the answer. And I will share it with you. .
the kids on a public website we let the birthday boy go first…
(although the point of Reverse Charades is to have
the group act it out for one person)
boys would get trying to guess a word from so many
different interpretations! It makes the game hilarious.
At bedtime they took the cards to the basement to play some more.
The game is really fun because the words can be guessed and acted out by both children and adults!
My older son and I actually tried a few ourselves and I admit I thought it would be easier than it was to act them out. I was either really good at guessing or my son was really good at acting them out.
We have the junior edition too which is going to be so Fun and more difficult because rather than knowing to guess within the genre of sports, with the Junior Version of Reverse Charades we will have no idea what types of words are coming out way! We are excited to have a new family game!!
Look at how fun this is. . .
You can also buy extension packs that include Holidays, Awesome 80’s, and Girls Night In.
SUPER FUN for EVERYONE! And of course at this time of year I am thinking Holidays, so what a perfect gift to get for a Family with the extension packs for individual members! It is a Great Gift Idea!
I had never heard of reverse charades before, it looks like a lot of fun!

Wow! What a COOL game! I am such a game person. Hubby calls me Monica from Friends! LOL!
This looks like a lot of fun, when my kids get a little older we may have to try this out!
That looks like so much fun!!!
I have never heard of that before, but it does sound like fun. If it can get and keep the attention of a group of 10yo boys, then it has to be good, lol.
Cheap Is The *New* Classy
I love games – board games, card games, whatever. Thanks for sharing! I hadn’t heard of this before!
That looks like so much fun! Bless you for having 15 boys over at your house! Holy cow!
How fun!! Made me miss my family… =)

This is a great twist on charades! Looks like a great game to play when the family is in town for the Holidays!
I’ve never heard of reverse charades before. Sounds like it was really good for the sleepover though, won out over everything else the kids had to do.
looks like a lot of fun for kids & adults!
This totally looks like a game my family would enjoy. We really love our Game Nights; this would be a fun addition!
I have never of Reverse Charades before today. My family loves to play games and this looks like a game we would all enjoy!
That looks like fun and a great way to keep kids entertained! I think it would be a fun group game because of how different people will interpret things differently. I really like that there is a junior version (since my kids are younger) and also that there are add on packs that you can get.
This sounds like a game my boys would really love!They love sports too so this game would be the perfect combination for them.
