A charade is an informal composition wherein a word is broken into its component syllables and presented as a series of punning clues to the identity of each part and the whole. From the poor acting usually involved in its dramatic form charades, it has also come to mean any farce or poorly-executed deception.

Charade or Charades may also refer to:


  • Charades, originally "acting charades", a parlor game
