Fish Bowl Night–Like Charades But Better
Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019
Free (one drink minimum)
The rules will be fully explained and available at the event, but take a sneak peak at how much fun you’re about to get into:
Groups will be split up into two equal teams. You can’t pick your team before arriving to the event~ nor can you pick/discuss your topics for what you write down! That’s cheating. No fun.
Each person on each team will get THREE pieces of paper to write down anything they’d like. Anything from “hot dog” to “Pam from The Office” to “Fart Cup”… sky’s the limit (but remember, you want your teammates to be able to act these things out and/or guess them). DON’T SHARE WITH YOUR TEAMMATES!
The same pieces of paper are used for each round– so pay attention!
ROUND ONE – TABOO
Describe the things on the paper using words or sentences. You can’t say any word that is a part of the thing already. If you do, it’s an automatic skip.
ROUND TWO – CHARADES
Act out the thing with no words!
ROUND THREE – PASSWORD
Use ONE word to get your team to guess the thing!
Come make some new friends and prepare to laugh a LOT, we promise.
One drink minimum to participate
