100+ TV Shows, Movies, and Books for Teenage Charades Games

Updated on March 16, 2018

Charades is a fun game for teenagers and the rules are simple. When choosing a charades topic, try to choose one you believe everybody in your group will know the answer to. When the answer is revealed, it's no fun if your friends still have no idea what you acting out because they've never heard of it before.

If you're getting bored of charades, why not try making it more interesting by altering it slightly?

You could have 2 people acting out the idea as a team, or you could even have everyone acting out the idea, and just one person guessing!
