TABOO

How to play:

The teacher will give you a capitalized word from the list. Describe the word, without using any of the taboo words. A partner or other team members try to guess your word.

You can’t say “the word starts with…” or “it sounds like…”. If you use a word that isn’t in English, you loose your turn.
