Guesstures

This game was a family favorite when I was growing up. Each of the cards you see has something you have to act out (like charades) and as time ticks, the cards drop. You have to try to get everyone to guess correctly so you can grab each card before it drops. We spent so many hours laughing over this game - lots of fond memories.


I was just tickled when I was walking through Walmart the other day and I saw this:

They have brought it back!! How cool is that?!

Anyone else play Guesstures when they were kids?

I don't think I've ever played that. It looks like fun though.

Obviously I did - and I think mom gave us her copy but I seemed to have lost it or gotten rid of it in one of our moves. I dunno where it is. Hmmm.

Fun game though! Maybe I'll get it for my inlaws so we can play when we visit!

Did it ever go away? I know I bought a new set when I was teaching.

I don't know Christie, but Amazon shows an original one selling for $70!

Not only did we play it when our kids were little(Chuck's family is HUGE on games!) but I've now taken it to my classroom and it is a big hit on rainy days! It develops vocabulary for all my EL students, they get out of their seats when they're cooped up inside and it's just plain fun! Have you ever tried Balderdash? Or Apples to Apples? Great fun for families with different ages (yours are probably a little young still but look for the near futurre)

Kathy - Balderdash is one of my favorites too, and we just played Apples to Apples last night with some people in our ward!
