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.
