Charades World

A fun team game where you guess the words with your friends.

Play Charades

We believe that the real fun is when we meet up with friends face to face.

Therefore, even though charades are online, here you will not play online :)

Charades World is a words generator and a timer, thanks to which no other props will be needed to play.

Well, except maybe a piece of paper and something to write with (if you decide to guess the words through drawing).

Use your smartphone or tablet.

Charades World also works on mobile devices: smartphones and tablets (iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows), so you don’t need to have a computer at the place where you play. Play, meet up with friends. At the end of the day, once in a while you need to get away from the computer. :)

The rules of the game

The rules of the game

Charades is a team game. The main element of the game is guessing the phrases or words. In each round every team guesses a word or phrases, presented by one of the team members. For that reason, it is often required that each squad has at least three contributors. In various stages, the riddles are presented through gestures (pantomime) or drawings (pictionary). Both during the presentation and drawing, the use of words or making any sounds that can help to guess the phrase are not allowed.

During drawing it is not permitted to make any gestures or write words; while acting out the phrase, you cannot point at people / places near you. Many charades organisers don’t allow the use of own clothing in order to show the colours.
