“Chinese Whispers” is a game that shows how a word can change by going through many people.  Each players hears almost a different word and is fun to watch how a sentence can change.  You will need to have your guests or players that want to play sit in a circle. The first player will need to think of a phrase or sentence (a message could be the title of a film or book) and will whisper it into the ear of the player next to them on the right. This second player whispers it to the third player on their right and so on around the circle. After the message has gone through all the players, the message returns to the first player, that player will announce what the phrase has become and how it was supposed to have started. It is funny how  the two versions are often wildly different when the game comes back to the player that started the message.
