- You can play in teams or as a whole.
– If playing in teams, one person from the team draws a game card and will act out the game card using no words. The rest of the team will try to guess in a set amount of time. If they are successful the team gets a point, if not, play moves to the opposing team.
– If playing as a whole, one person from the entire group draws a game card and will act out the game card using no words. The rest of the team will try to guess the set amount of time. The individual that guesses correctly, is awarded the only point.
