      Haven't opened the box yet but it looks like lots of fun. We typically write down our own charades phrases but it is fun once in a while to not have to think about it. Just open the box, choose a subject and the fun begans!

                  As grandparents in this digital world, we'd forgotten how much fun the simple game of charades was! And, we introduced our grandchildren to a form of family entertainment that required no electricity or batteries. Who knew!

                        Fun and even preschoolers catch on quickly. There are different levels of timers and different levels of cards. Only downside is there aren't enough cards to avoid memorization. So, in one setting my daughter/I went through the whole stack of picture ones, which means we will have to wait months to play again because we instantly know what the other person is acting out.

                          We have a blast with this game. Even my 3 year-old likes to play it (with a little help from his mom). It is very nice to have my kids asking to play something that doesn't need to be recharged. We even bought this for friends so we can have family challenges once their kids get the hang of it.

                          Charades isn't my thing, but 25 dollars is to much for something that you can think up on your own.

                          Family games are definately on the come back. This good old tried and true never outgrows the fun, whether it is adults, chilren or mixed...it's always a good time.

                          IT's a great game, but you don't need a box and rules, etc. A folk tradition, not a product.

                          half the fun of charades is coming up with the ideas, and when you run out you can find them on the internet for free. just not something i would spend $25 on

                          I like "game nights" and I admit I may not be able to make things up to do in my head. I have "guesstures" which is sort of along the same line and I like it. The price is right for this type of gamer.

                          Your copy asks a question. No, it won't keep up with ours (which depends on family legends and inside jokes) but it's a great gift to other families!

                          At least from the description, this doesn't seem to be for a mixed set of people (family), but for kids OR adults OR teens. Adults might be acting out some Old Hollywood item, and the kids wouldn't know what it was. If I'm wrong, then maybe it just needs a better Product Story.

                          While I love charades and sometimes just draw blanks when having to come up with ideas, I feel that a box of ideas might get old as you play the game over and over, and get repeats.

                          This would be a nice addition to game night. It's bringing back an old classic while adding a game that will be different every time, I.e. The kids won't get bored with.
