The Whisper Challenge: Hilarious Club Game

Noise-cancelling headphones, playing loud music.

How to Play

This can be played as an up-front game with two players, seeing who can guess the most phrases correctly. You could also play this with a new leader being the one in the hot seat, as part of a new leader initiation.

Have one player put on headphones playing loud music, while a leader reads a random phrase off of a card out loud. The player wearing the sound-blocking headphones then tries to guess what the phrase is by lip-reading. When you play the whisper challenge, you don’t want the person with the headphones guessing correctly, so you need whisper challenge phrases or sentences that would be difficult or confusing to guess correctly.

A correct guess = one point

Partially correct guess = half a point

Wrong guess = zero points.
