Charades!

Multiplayer activity game available in app form. Pick a deck of cards which will, depending on the chosen theme, give you a word to guess. Hold the phone up in front of your forehead facing your group while they give you clues to guess what your word is before time runs out. Choose from a variety of themed decks including movies, science, literature and TV shows.

Evaluation: Great group activity for practising your target language. Requires participation from everyone involved so everyone gets a chance to practice their speaking. Includes other activities such as impersonating and trivia games. Can also be used as a good icebreaker.

Cost: Free, in-app purchases
