This basic format is useful in many games.
On the board is written the clue, answer, hint, etc.
The player(s) stand in front of the board, facing their team(s). The team members (freely, or in turns) call out hints and the player tries to guess/identify what is written behind them.
Team members can also do pantomime, or even statues, in lieu of speaking.
E.g., write the name of a famous person or character on the board. The teams give hints as to the identity of the person (with some limits -- e.g. can't say name, gender, country... whatever). The player has some limited amount of time or guesses.
