    Fast Draw Game
    Test your artistic abilities under pressure in this clever, exhilarating guessing game.
    WHAT YOU NEED:
    Set of clue cards
    Markers
    Large board to write on
    Stopwatch
    HOW TO PLAY:
    1. Use index cards and a marker to create a set of clue cards to give each team to draw (in the style of Pictionary). Then divide your family into two teams.

    2. In alternating turns, each team sends up a player to draw a word, with all members of that team allowed to guess it (predetermine a set time limit). If a team member guesses correctly before time runs out, that team wins a point and it is the next team's turn. The enthusiasm of this guessing game can be contagious, so make it clear that if someone from the resting team yells out the right word by accident, the drawing team

  • Twenty Questions
    A combination of concentration and a little guess work solves the mystery behind this classic game.


    WHAT YOU NEED:
    Nothing


    HOW TO PLAY:
    1. One player thinks of a famous person, place or thing.

    2. In turn, everyone gets to ask the player a question, which must be answered "yes" or "no." For example, "Does it know how to read?" is a valid question, but "What's its favorite book?" is not.

    3. Players may ask up to twenty questions total. Whoever guesses correctly gets a turn to think up something.

  • Sardines
    This game reverses the rules of hide and seek--one person hides and the rest look for him.


    WHAT YOU NEED:
    Nothing


    HOW TO PLAY:
    1. Players count to one hundred while one child hides. The search party then breaks up to looking.

    2. As each player finds "It," they squeeze into the hiding place until the spot is jammed with kids.

    3. When the last person finds the hiding place, that kid gets to start a new game by hiding first.
