The Bowl Game
How to Play
The Bowl Game is a personalized guessing game useful for parties and other gatherings. To prepare for the game, cut paper into small pieces, yet big enough to write on. Have the players write down virtually anything that can be used for guessing: objects, famous people, movies, places, anything that comes to mind. Fold the pieces up and put them into the bowl. Divide into two teams. Each team has one minute to describe as many pieces of paper from the bowl as possible without saying the word on the paper. Each team gets one pass per turn and after that it is minus one point for every pass. Whoever has the most points when the terms in the bowl run out wins.Variations include: Doing charades with the same set of clues for the second round, followed by being allowed to say one word only for the third round.
