St Patrick's Day Charades Set Up
Before the St. Patrick's Day party print out the charade clues (below) on to green paper.
Cut the Charade game clues into individual pieces.
Fold the paper so that the printed clues can not be seen as players are choosing them.
Put the folded St. Patty's Day clues into a container or bag that is easy to reach into. Optional - decorate the container in a St. Patrick's Day theme.
Players pick a clue out from the container before it is their turn to act out a St. Patrick's Day Charade.
Charades can be played two different ways:
1. In two teams
2. As a large group
The object of Charades is for one player to choose a clue from the St. Patrick's Day charades container, without looking at it, and act it out for the rest of the players to guess. The player that is acting out the clue can not talk, they can only use gestures.
To play in Teams:
Divide the game players into two teams.
Players should sit on the same side of the room as their team.
Choose which team will go first by rock, paper, scissors or rolling a dice.
The first team team going first will decide on a player to act the charade.
The first player chooses a clue from the clue container without looking. The player has 10 seconds to look at the clue before the timer starts.
Set a timer for 1 minute or designate an adult to be the timekeeper for both teams.
The person acting out the Charade has one minute to act out their clue.
They can not talk during their turn.
While the acting player is acting out the charades clue the players on their team tries to guess the word or phrase.
The team can shout out answers until they guess the right answer.
If the team guesses the clue within the time limit their team gets a point.
If they have not gotten the right answer within the time limit the other team has one chance to answer. If the opposing team guesses correctly they get a point.
To play St. Patrick's Day Charades as group:
Choose one person to start the game.
They choose one of the game charades and act it out for everyone.
The first person to guess the correct Valentine's Day Charade is the next one to act out a clue.
If no one guesses the clue in the allotted time then the timekeeper can choose someone to act out the clue.
St. Patrick's Day Charade Clue Help
These common Charade helps are allowed during the game as long as the player acting out the clue does not talk. The player acting out the clue will usually use them at the beginning of their turn. But be careful using them as they could use a lot of time and you only have one minute for your team to guess the Charade.
