Five of the group are selected to act out a charade. These five act out

a word in pantomime. While they are doing this a second group of five

is selected and prepares to act out another word, immediately following

the presentation by the first group. The audience is given three

minutes to guess each charade. Should it succeed in doing this, then

the members of the group each choose a substitute for themselves, thus

making a third group of five. While this last group is preparing a

charade, the second group is putting on its pantomime, and so the game

continues. If the audience fails to guess the word within the required

time, then the same group is given an opportunity to act another word.
