Communication games challenge and train the communication among the participants. In detail, the task are quite diverse though, and range from transmitting texts and words, solving problems in a discussion or quickly reacting and replying with correct answers.


Here some examples of communication games are presented. For the full list of such games in the GamesWiki, please have a look at category:communication game.

With games of that type, the participants may not say certain words. Of course, all players are trying to make them pronounce exactly those words.

Chinese whispers

A classic communication game. A group transmits a word from one person to the next. As words may not be repeated and are typically spoken very silently, they change over time.
