You will double the fun by making your own, thinking up the words, Give it a go. Trying to guess whether it’s a banana or a plane that is being drawn on the board is a hoot!
3.Chinese whispers. This is best played with a larger group. One person starts the game by whispering a sentence into the ear of the person sitting next to them. They whisper what they think they heard to the person on the other side of them. This continues until the sentence gets to the last person. At that time, the person says out loud what they think they heard. You’ll be surprised and entertained by what the end result is.
4. Name, Place, Animal, Thing. We all have played this game at some given point in our lives. Give it a go with family. It is one of the most entertaining vocabulary games that you can play.

One person is “the den” will say a statement that will have a thing as the answer, such as “Things you shouldn’t do while at work.” Everyone then writes on a piece of paper something that shouldn’t be done at work, such as sleep. The “Den” then collects all the answers and reads them out loud. Then, go around the group letting people guess a matchup of a person and an answer. Getting points for a correct answer and being out for a wrong one . The person who’s answer was guessed is out. Continue going around until one person is left. That person gets three points.
