"Unspeakable" is a slide-driven crowd game that everyone in the room can play. This game offers the classic mind vs mouth dilemma and is sure to challenge your students and get them out of their shell.
Each round, students will partner up with one other person. Make sure the one of the partners is facing the screen while the other partner has their back to the screen (i.e. cannot see the screen). As the round begins, the slide will show the magic word for the round. The partner that is looking at the screen will begin by giving a one-word context clue to the partner who cannot see the screen. The partner who cannot see the screen will then respond with a one-word context clue of their own. Ultimately, the partners are trying to whittle down to the correct word. What makes this game fun and challenging is the unspeakable in each round. Each round, there are three words that cannot be said by either partner. If either partner ever says an unspeakable, then the pair is out for the remainder of that round.
Before playing, show students the intro video so they will learn how to play Unspeakable.
