Reverse Charades A fun twist on the traditional game in which the entire family acts out the words while a single person tries to guess as many as they can within the time limit. The free version comes with several sample packs of words. This app does offer in-app purchase of additional words. Another fun charades game, Charades for Kids has a free version, but you’ll need to be ok with ads if you select that one.
