Panic Word

This is a great game for 21st Birthdays. It also works well for family parties, Christmas and Thanksgiving.

GET READY
Write down 100 words on index cards (one word per index card), such as:

blink, stare, lint, thread, plate, bra, shoelace - any words you like.

Find a timer or stopwatch that will run for a minute. An iPhone is a good idea. Or you can just use a wristwatch.
Have a pen and paper to score on.
Stack the cards and put them in the center of the room.
Divide the players into 2 teams and seat them opposite each other.

PLAY!
Set the timer for one minute. Have the first player from team one draw a card from the pile. He/she gives clues to the word to their teammates before the timer ends the play.

So, if the word is "blink", the team member might say,

"What you do if dust gets in your eyes?"

Players from team one try to guess the word. If they are successful before the time is up, they win a point.
If the timer runs out and the word is not guessed, the other team gets a point.

Take turns until all the cards are gone, then add up points to see who wins.

This game brings a very competitive side in people and usually it's the person with the loudest voice that wins!
