Product Description

Product Description

Guesstures is a new fast-action game from Hasbro that plays like a high-speed version of charades. Use gestures to help your team guess the word printed on the card. But you only have a few seconds and you can't say a word. When they guess correctly, grab your card before it gets swallowed up by the word-hungry Mimer-Timer. Second edition includes more cards and categories and provides quick word fun for everyone. Game includes 504 cards with card box, Mimer-Timer game unit, crayon, 2 label sheets and instructions.

Guesstures turns up the heat on the tired game of charades with a few modernizations. Good, quick pantomiming is still the thing, but now teams need to act out and guess four words in a matter of seconds. The "mimer-timer," designed like a movie scene board, controls everything. The actor draws four word cards and places them from easiest to hardest in the timer unit for each scene. After the arm swings down for "Action," time is rapidly eaten away and so are cards as the performer gestures wildly like a silent movie actor. When the cast guesses the word, the actor grabs the card before the "mimer-timer" does. Whew! It's a lot to think about. Each word is rated based on difficulty, so whatever cards the team correctly guesses and the actor manages to seize are tallied up and recorded. --Lynne Sampson

This game is basically a twist on the traditional game of charades. Players take turns choosing four cards, each of which have two words on them -- an easier one and a tougher one (for less and more points respectively). They then place those cards in a card holder that has a wind up timer in it. When the timer starts the person has to do things to get their team to say the word on the card. When they do so, the player grabs the card and pulls it out of the timer unit. If it takes too long for the team to guess the word the card drops down into the timer unit and those points are lost to the team.
It's a gas to watch people grabbing for falling cards and seeing their faces as they see the card slip out of sight!
My family and I love to play this game. It works well for players of many ages (including children). The range of questions makes this game workable for children from about age 8 or so on up. It also works well as a party game for older folks.
Great stuff, great fun, but doesn't really teach you all that much -- oh well, not every game has to do that!
Have fun.

Like to get loud and laugh? Need something to liven the crowd and lower inhibitions? Love charades but have a hard time coming up with catergories and clues? Then this is your game! Fast paced hilarity for all, can really get everyone involved. 2 to 4 teams of any size. A favorite of our game night crowd.

This is simply charades with rules, which is both good and bad. There are two sets of word / phrase cards, one with more difficult words / phrases that are worth more. Every card has two words / phrases, one more difficult and rewarding. They're placed in a thing that makes the cards fall one by one. You have to get your team to guess what you're acting and quickly grab the card. I think it's better without keeping score. This is a pretty good party game. I recommend it for any group of 3 or more friends or family members, especially one that can't come up with any charades things to act.

Even the most reserved person will get caught up in the fast paced excitement of this game. When my team couldn't get "ceiling" I just had to jump a little higher pointing it out. I won't even tell you what a friend did to make us guess "fire hydrant!" We laughed until our sides ached. What a great game!

This is one of those games that's great in a large group and only fun the first few times you play.
I give it a recommendation, because at the right time and place it's a perfect game, but do point out that it's not a classic any time any place game, and it's definately not one that two or three can play by themselves.

My husband and I were introduced to this game several years ago at a New Year's Eve party and have been hooked ever since. Once one gets over the initial jitters at "performing" the words everyone clamors to be the performer-even my shy 12 year old son-amazing! We have played it with friends, bring it to family gatherings and it never fails to produce tears running down your face laughter. It is probably the most fun game I have ever played and I highly recommend it.

Guesstures is hilariously fun! My husband and I often invite new people from our church over for dinner, and this is a great ice-breaker game. It prevents those akward moments when no one has anything to say, and it opens up the lines of communications. It is also a great tool to learn about people - it's fun to watch the guys try to come up with stuff for each card, and it has sparked some wild discussions in our home. I've never had a guest come back and say they had a terrible time playing "Guesstures" with us - in fact, we've developed a reputation within our circle of friends for a fun night out because of this game. I would also recommend this for kids and teens - our 9yo loves this game and asks to play it often.

Take Charades, but remove all its bad bits: rounds going on forever; the mime making signals to basically spell out the answer, instead of cleverly depict it; waiting for the mime to come up with a puzzle. This gives you Guesstures. Guesstures is a brilliantly simple boiling down of charades that is hilariously fun (especially if you have a pet who gets excited at short outbursts). The mime gets four cards, and for each must choose the easier or harder word. Of course, the harder words earn more points: The mime also gets to choose the order the cards will be attempted. The real catch and the desperate excitement is that as the timer runs down, the cards drop out of reach one by one; so if the mime's first card goes quickly, she grabs it, and has extra time for the later ones. If, however, the first card goes slowly, and drops out of sight, she's stuck with less time for the later cards, and the foreboding suspicion that the card is going to drop just as she grabs for it. In the latter case, a player's turn as the mime can feel a bit defeating, but the high-quality, high-entertainment performances from the mimes forced by the incredibly short time limits more than make up for it, because they keep this game very entertaining, and the players exuberant. It is a perfect high-energy party game.
