USE YOUR WORDS

Uggggh, do we feel dumb when we get sucked into a game of charades. Jumping around, trying to remember those hand gestures for “sounds like,” and “syllables,” and whatever. Is there a version of this game were we don’t just frantically wave our arms around while everyone stares at us, dumbfounded? And we really wish the prompts in charades were better. “James Madison,” “Napoleon,” “tumbleweed,” “acrobat” – who wrote these? When are we going to get something like “Jeff Goldblum complaining that MTV doesn’t play music videos anymore” in a game of charades? Oh, right, when we play God Hates Charades instead of boring old regular crappy charades! It’s like the best parts of Taboo, Cards Against Humanity, and, yes, charades, all smooshed together into a beautiful mutant love child.

In this game, you draw two Actor cards (from a deck stacked with “King Kong,” “Wolverine,” “Alf,” “Spock,” and more geeky references) and two hilarious Scenario cards (like “getting a prostate exam,” “auditioning for the role of a dead body on Law & Order,” or “building their own coffin”). Choose which Actor and which Scenario you want to use (and discard the others), and then act out the scene for your friends to guess! You can dance, you can sing, scream, talk, do impressions, use all the words, props, and gestures you can think of… except you just can’t say any of the words that appear on your two cards. Finally, we don’t have to feel like weird mimes acting out lame things, and we can yell at our friends when they aren’t getting our super obvious hints. Perfect.
