Dumb-c and Pic-C

Pictionary: is one of the games which basically uses drawings to provide clues in a guessing game. It is a way to communicate non-verbally in an effective way using only pictures without the use of numerals and symbols.

Dumb Charade: is one of the acting games which basically uses gestures and mimes to provide clues in a guessing game. It is a way to communicate non-verbally in an effective way. It requires use of hands, facial expressions, and the body to mime words.

The aim of this game is for a group of players to guess the name of a movie, the name of a song, the name of a novel etc through a dumb mime. The operative word is ‘dumb’, so the mimer is banned from using words altogether.

The words we used were the once difficult to illustrate and it should be a concept. It was difficult as it is difficult to illustrate a concept or anything intangible. Articles and nouns are easy to illustrate through drawings and acting.

Also the group members should be in tune to understand the person who is trying to convey the word and there should be some preset symbols and ideas set by the group members to convey the genre to the word. This makes the process all the more easy.

It Was Fun!!!
