It's still fun, and everybody gets to laugh repeatedly.
My word was "mosquito."
Indicated one word with three syllables.
Third syllable "sounds like" and pointed to my toes.
Next I did a "sounds like"and pretended to be shooting clay pigeons.
Sure enough one of the players (whom I happen to have a secret crush on, but she's married, so let's not go there. LOL ) put the skeet and the toe together and shouted out "mosquito!"
So we ran off together and lived happily ever after. Or probably not.
Pray for me.
