Default Charades competition

This year at abunai there will again be an event called anime charades.

Last year people had great fun playing it (and I had fun organising it).
So it is back this year at a much better location !

The game of charades is simple, there are a number of teams and in turn a member of a team will try to "act out" something.
The rest of his/her team will then try to guess the thing that is acted out.

There will be prices for the winning team and offcourse the jurys favorite

Any suggestions / reactions are welcome.

regards,

Herman

according to my database model: yes you have to sign up, by yourself or as a group (think 5 is the maximum if I remember correctly)

Signing up is offcourse appriciated, but the number of people that are able to join in is quite flexible (I will arrange things there and then (besides the already signed up groups, etc obviously).

So sign up if you can!

regards,

Herman

Update: new, better description.
As for signing up: if you didn't already just show up at the event and I'll try to fit you in (the limit is around 30 people).

regards,

Herman

--- description ---
The game of Anime Charades is played with teams of 4, 5 or 6 people.
One by one the participating teams will be up, when the team is up one of the team members shall be called forth.
This team member will get to know the Item, upon discovering the nature of this item, this person shall try to act out the Item.
Making sounds is not allowed, nor may one do "hints".
This persons team then has one minute to try and guess what the item is,
if it happens that this team cannot guess the item within the time, all the other teams will get one guess at the item in turn.
The team that guesses the item gets one point.

After a certain amount of time the two teams that have performed the best so far will continue through to the final round.
For this round the scores of the two teams will be reset to zero and the items to guess will be more dificult.
For example, the complete name of a character will need to be guessed in the final, and not just its first or last name.

The team that wins the final gets nice prices, as well as the person that the jury liked the best.

Default Charade

The anime Charade was really fun ^_^ I never participated in one before and I didn't even knew what I was supposed to expect until we started but it really was a lot of fun. Thx for organising it guys. Hope there will be one next year too.

great to hear that
If it is up to me there will be another one next time ^_^

I think I hit the sweet spot as far as the difficulty of the questions, in the first round most of the questions where answered, but a good part of them wheren't to keep things exiting.
And the final was really hard with few correct guesses (as it should be), you could feel the tension in the air

And I had some really fun and enthousiastic participants this year, it was also good to see team AF again int heir entirety. They won again, but by a much smaller margin then the previous time, however in the finals they showed of their deep knowledge of obscure animes

regards,

Herman
