Games[edit]

  • Slide On Over

The showpiece game takes place inside a sliding room set at a 22.5 degree angle. Each team acts out an improvised scene (with the occasional prompt from host Denyer) while also negotiating the steep incline.

  • Photo Mime

One team-member looks at a screen and mimes out the image projected for their team members to guess. The image may be anything from an object to a well-known personality.

  • Trapezier Said Than Done

One team member suspended from the roof by a harness acts out common expressions for their team mates to guess – all while being lifted higher and higher off the floor.

  • ABC Story

All three team members act out a scene where every new line must start with the next letter of the alphabet. The first sentence starts with “A”, the next with “B” and so forth until the scene ends with a sentence starting with "Z".

  • Shadow Puppets

Two team members are placed behind a shadow screen with props to mime out a movie title for their third team member to guess.

  • Danswers

One team member tries to get their teammates to guess a word - all while being twirled around by professional dancers. Includes cameos from Dancing with the Stars’ Carmelo Pizzino and Jessica Raffa.

  • Alpha Body

This game involves two team members lying on the floor and contorting their bodies in unison to create letters individually to spell out a word. This can be seen from an overhead camera to make sure performers spell correctly.

  • Drawn Out

One team member sketches while the other team members guess what they’re drawing.

  • Just Say It

One team member must get the other to guess certain words by explaining them, without saying the specific word – while the two act out a scene together.
