How To Articles

Participating in virtual charades using Microsoft Teams can be a enjoyable and interactive experience for coworkers and companions. In this guide, I will walk you through the process of playing virtual charades on Microsoft Teams, and include my own personal insights and observations throughout.

Step 1: Set up a Meeting

The first step is to set up a meeting on Microsoft Teams. You can do this by opening the Teams app and clicking on the “Calendar” tab. From there, select a date and time for your virtual charades session and invite the participants by adding their email addresses.

Step 2: Share the Charades List

Once the meeting is set up, it’s time to share the charades list with the participants. You can either create your own list or find one online. Personally, I like to come up with a theme for each round of charades to make it more interesting. For example, you could have a movie-themed round or a sports-themed round.

After you’ve prepared the charades list, you can share it with the participants by uploading it to the meeting chat. Alternatively, you can also share the list through a file-sharing service and provide the participants with the link.

Step 3: Start the Charades Game

Once everyone is ready, it’s time to start the virtual charades game. You can take turns being the “actor” who acts out the charades and the rest of the participants will try to guess the word or phrase. To make it more interactive, encourage participants to use the chat or microphone to guess the answer.

During the game, don’t be afraid to add personal touches and commentary to make it more enjoyable. For example, you can share funny anecdotes or make suggestions for alternative interpretations of the charades. It’s these personal touches that make virtual charades on Microsoft Teams a memorable experience.

Step 4: Keep Score and Have Fun!

To add an extra element of competition, you can keep score during the virtual charades game. Assign points for each correct guess and keep track of the scores throughout the game. You can use the Teams chat to keep a record of the scores or simply use a pen and paper.

Remember, the most important thing is to have fun and enjoy the game with your colleagues or friends. Virtual charades on Microsoft Teams is a great way to bond and bring some laughter to your virtual meetings or hangouts.


Playing virtual charades on Microsoft Teams can be a fantastic way to engage with your colleagues or friends. By following the steps outlined above and adding your personal touches and commentary, you can create a memorable and enjoyable experience for everyone involved. So go ahead, set up a meeting, share the charades list, and get ready for a fun-filled game of virtual charades on Microsoft Teams!
