  3. Each person gets a turn to "act it out." The player removes a picture from the hat and gets 10 seconds on the timer to imitate/mime the character on the card. When the time is up, other players guess the picture.
  4. You can choose to let the person who guesses correctly have the next turn or the turns can be predetermined.
