The first laughs with this old game of rhyme and mime come when you tell kids its amusing name: Dumb Crambo.

To play you'll need at least four people, divided into two teams.

How to play

  1. Have team one leave the room as team two decides on a word that team one will have to guess. When team one returns, team two says a word that rhymes with the mystery word as a clue. For example, if the mystery word is "cat," team two might say "bat."

  2. Team one then starts guessing by acting out a word that rhymes with "bat," such as "rat" or "flat." When team two recognizes the word team one is miming, they either shake their heads no (and team one must mime another rhyming word) or yell "Yes!" if the word is the correct one. The teams switch roles for the next round.
