Dumb Charades

Considering this is the first serious post on my blog...
I thought I'll write on a subject on which I have considerable expertise.
After a lot of thought I've decided to write on Dumb Charades, the Ultimate communication game that's one of the most popular cultural events of any Bangalore College fest, second probably only to Mad Ads...
I'm not going to explain the nuances of the game here, just ponder why its one of the most popular games...

Firstly, people love seeing a young man desperately trying to act out famous pop singers, Oscar winning movies and ridiculously big words to his equally desperate friends within an inhuman time limit...

Secondly, there are few things funnier that acting out Xena warrior princess on a stage in front of an audience of screaming college dudes...

Thirdly, disappointed participants often turn on their own teammates and a lively fight between friends ensues...

Finally, this is probably the only game where the line between the Amateurs and Pro teams is paper thin, thus allowing any group of people to rise up to the challenge...

Truly the game for anybody who wishes to stake a claim to fame...
