This is a group game where the more people the better. It can also be an effective game for helping children see the effects of words and gossip.
It is easy to play this game seated in a circle or a line. The leader makes up something to say, and whispers it into the ear of the person next to him/her. Each successive player repeats what they think they heard to the next player, each time whispering into their neighbor's ear. The last player states aloud what s/he thinks s/he heard. It is most often not exactly what the first player said, and at times not even close to what the leader said!
