Players have 30 minutes to make a skit that conveys the concept from their Concept Card.
Skits are then performed at the centre area of the room. Taboo words are not to be spoken. Teams may use props found in or around the gameplay location to enhance skits. Teams have three minutes to act out their skits. Enforcers must ensure the time limit is not exceeded and taboo words are not spoken.
After each performance, teams discuss skit and the topic of the skit.
Next, teams vote for the best performance by placing beans on each other’s Blank Index Cards. Teams can not vote for themselves.
Facilitator checks the outcome of voting and declares a winner.
