Norman Family Game Night- Guesstures
This game is a HOOT! I love playing Guesstures with my family! It's fun with any crowd, but with my four it's especially hilarious. We pulled this game out tonight, since Mommy didn't have to work and had an hour of laughter and hilarity!
The object of Guesstures is very much like Charades, except your selections are pre-made for you on these cards and you have to act out multiple words, rather than movie or book titles, in a very small amount of time.
The movie snapper that you see above acts as a timer for the game as well as a holder for the cards. You pick 4 random cards and place them in the slots at the top of the snapper. You must act out the words on the cards in sequential order. If your words are guessed in time, you take the card from the snapper and you move on to the next one. Every few seconds, a card drops inside the box if your teammates don't guess it in time.
The red "HARD" cards count for 2 points and the "EASY" cards count for only 1 point. Play to your hearts content. . . . it's not over until you want it to be. At the end of the game, the person with the most points wins! Simple city!
If you ever come to my house for game night, I hope you get to see Greg play this game. He is soooo funny when he acts out words! He is a very expressive fellow! Definitely one of his many talents! I think we ALL would agree to that! He keeps us rolling!
