This is the same as Charades but uses events from the past year instead of movies, books etc.
List of events from the past year.
Go through magazines and newspapers to pick out events from the past year. Use these events as "titles" to act out for Charades. For tons of fun, make each of your guests team up in two's and act out whichever past year's event that they have randomly drawn while others guess.
