I received Reverse Charades Junior for my review. I chose the Junior version for ages 6+ because I wanted our kids to be able to play. Our oldest is 6, and our daughter just turned 5, but I figured with help they could both play. I’m happy to say I was right!
We love playing games, and Reverse Charades sounded like so much fun I couldn’t wait to find it. Reverse Charades is similar to traditional charades in regards to the concept that you act out a word without speaking. The “reverse” part comes in where you choose someone from your team to be the “guesser” and everyone else acts out the words. What a blast! This also helps in regards to letting the kids play because if there is a word that is too hard for them to read one of the other people on the team that is acting it out with them can whisper it to them. Reverse Charades is also great because you can kind of work around it to make rules that fit you. We have actually played it a couple of times at home with just our family. Even our toddler jumped in on the fun! The “winner” was whoever got the most guesses right at the end of the game. So, although it’s more fun to play in teams with others it was still fun to play with just our family as well! It’s too easy to get caught up in media, so it was nice to find a way to play this game with just our family so we could take a break and have some fun! It’s fun watching one person acting out a word, but watching 3 or 4 is hilarious! You should definitely watch some of their videos on YouTube as well! This would be a GREAT game to play at a New Year’s party – or ANY time!
Overall, I really enjoy this twist on traditional charades, and I think the Junior version is great if you have kids. It has the flexibility to play it how it works best for you. They even have a smart phone app! I think it’s a game almost everyone can enjoy!
