How to Play Charades

Girls vs. boys or wife vs. husband, which will it be? You can go either way with this couples charades game! With our handy scorecard (linked below) simply grab a pretty frame and some dry erase markers so that you can keep score (and re-use the scorecard another time.)

Then, make sure to determine what the prize will be when the night is through! If the ladies win, the men will be delivering and vice versa. We put a foot massage on the line when we played! 😉

Next, print off the adorable list of charades ideas linked below. We’ve made it SO easy for you! These charades ideas are filled with fun and crazy words that are all marriage related. This means you might be asked to act out words like “compromise,” “pillow fight,” or maybe even “romance.” You’ll be sure to have a lot of laughs!

When everyone arrives (or you and your sweetheart are ready to play against each other), get to acting! One member of the starting team stands up and is given 60 seconds to see how many charades ideas (from the printable slips) they can act out and have their team guess successfully. After 60 seconds are up, count up the number of ideas correctly guessed by that player and mark it on the scoreboard. Then, SWITCH. Now it’s the other team’s turn!

Keep playing until all the cards are guessed (or until you you’re too tired from laughing!)
