Guesstures: The Game of Split-second Charades

card game

Toy designer Jeffrey Breslow, of Big Monster Toys, co-designed the game "Guesstures" in 1990, along with designer Howard Morrison. Both men formerly worked in the famous Chicago studio of Marvin Glass Associates. Guesstures is a speedy, timed version of charades, where players earn points for acting out scenes printed on cards. The game is still in production more than 20 years later.
