Hedbanz is a reverse charades game, in which each player takes turns guessing a word the other players act out. Players wear the word card in a headband so all others can see their word, and they choose by roll of a die which other player will have 20 seconds to act it out; if the color that comes up is no one's, all players act it. Both the guesser and the successful actor earn a point for guessing correctly. Players lose a point if they give up on the card they are wearing.

The premise of the game is simple, and it's the words provided for guessing that make it a family game night hit. Though some of them might be too challenging for little ones to guess, most are easy enough to act out. Expect lots of laughs.
