Everyone knows the secret word except the Chameleon. But who is the Chameleon?
This is a super social ‘whodunit’ party game!
Using one carefully chosen word from the topic cards pile, you try to catch out the imposter (the chameleon). But when someone is this good at blending in, innocent people start looking guilty and the Chameleon can escape!
So how does it work?
Place a Topic Card face-up on the table. Next, hand everyone a Code Card and roll the dice. Look up the dice numbers on your Code Card and it should guide you to the secret word on the Topic Card.
However….. One player’s Code Card says “You are the Chameleon”. They’ll have no idea what the secret word is and will have to do their best to blend in.
Time to try and find out who the imposter is! Everyone thinks of a word that’s related to the secret word to prove that they know what it is. Meanwhile, the Chameleon must think of a word to blend in.
When everyone’s ready, go around the circle and get everyone to say their word, one by one.
For Example: The Topic is Sports and the secret word is Motorbike Riding. Can you guess which player is the chameleon?
- Player 1: Fast
- Player 2: Cool
- Player 3: Ball
- Player 4: Wheels
Discuss which player sounded the most suspicious, then point at who you think the guilty player was. Whoever gets the most votes must reveal their Code Card to the group.
If it’s the wrong player, the Chameleon wins. If it’s the Chameleon, that player gets one guess at what the secret word was. If they get it right, they still win!
So, will you have what it takes to have everyone guessing? Why not grab this game and find out!
