Password (Vocabulary game)

Jimmy Fallon has granted us yet another great game that we can use in EFL/ESL classrooms to practice vocabulary! Here is a short description! (Or just watch the video below!)

Requires: At least 4 people, split into even-numbered teams.

How to play:
Before the game begins, players take turns writing 5 to 10 words on individual slips of paper. These words become the “passwords” used during game play. Each team selects a player to be It for each round, while teams pick a password from the opposite team’s word bank. It stands before his team as they share the password with each other. Then, each team takes turns collaborating on a one-word clue to give the It player so s/he can guess the password. The first team to provide the best clue in the fewest number of turns so that It guesses the password gets one point. Games can last as long as you want, provided you have enough passwords.
