How To Play Actionary
This icebreaker youth group game is a cross between pictionary, sculptionary and charades.
Firstly come up with a list of pictionary style words to use. Try to use words that might be easy enough to draw/scuplt/act. Divide the group into 4 teams and give each team a tray of play-doh, some paper and some pens.
The leader who is running the game stands in the centre of the room, situated in between all of the groups. Then each team sends a volunteer up to the leader and they then get each player to roll the giant dice in turn.
Either make your own dice with "act", "draw" and "sculpt" or just use a normal dice and designate two numbers to each type.
Ie. 1, 2 = Charades
3,4 = Pictionary
5,6 = Sculptionary
Then give all the players the first word from the list. The players will then go back to their group and act, draw or sculpt out the word, depending on what number they rolled. Once someone in their group guesses the word correctly, they go up and roll the dice again and receive the next word. The first team to get through the complete list of words wins!
