Gracie and I have been lucky in the past to be able to try out the regular edition of Reverse Charades. We honestly enjoy the game a lot. It is a lot of fun. Reverse Charades has a new expansion pack for their regular edition called Hollywood edition. Being the game lovers that we are, we jumped on the chance to review it.
Well, the Hollywood edition did not let us down. We had as much fun playing it as we did the regular edition. You play it the same way as you do the regular edition. You get into teams of at least 3 people. You pick a point level you want to go to or the number of rounds you to complete- we go for the point level. You have one minute to guess as many words as you can correctly, one point for each word that you get right. If you don’t like a word, you can pass BUT you can only pass once per round. Each team has one guesser, everyone on the team gets a chance to be the guesser, just one at at time though. The rest of the team acts out the word. A member from the opposite team holds up the card for the actors to see. The actors can’t mouth or speak the word or your team will lose a point, so you have to be careful. Keep up with your points so you can see who won. That’s never a problem at our house, because we’re all in it to win it!
Some of the cards in this expansion pack include words like Wicked Witch, Dancing With The Stars and Spock. How would you act these out? Let me tell you with several people acting these words out all differently as a guesser, you don’t know what to guess. I’m a terrible guesser and to be totally honest, I’m a worse actor. I have a load of fun though playing though and end up laughing my head off! Gracie has an even bigger time laughing at me.
Reverse Charades also has 3 other expansion packs available-
