Word Slam!... like charades, but instead of acting, you can only communicate with word cards!
“EAT, YELLOW, CIRCLE. Do you mean pancakes? Or pineapple rings?”
“Oh wait, the CIRCLE is DIVIDED? So something that you eat that is yellow and semicircular? Uh, is it, maybe … a banana?”
“Yes, the answer is banana! One point for the Blue Team!”
In Word Slam!, two teams have a storyteller who must both use the same answer term. Playing at the same time, and using cards only, they must give clues to their teams so the teams can correctly guess the answer.
The storyteller must be creative in using this limited vocabulary to tell the story, a deck of 105 cards for clues, each containing one word (a noun, verb, adjective or preposition), and cannot act or speak at all. And the team members must think quickly and nimbly to interpret the story cards.
The team that correctly guesses the answer first gets a point, and the team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
