The Telephone Game - Chinese Whispers
Youtube link | Pop Up
In the game variously known as Chinese whispers, Telephone, Broken Telephone, Whisper Down the Lane, Gossip, Arab Phone (from the French Le téléphone arabe), and Stille Post (Silent Post), the first player whispers a phrase or sentence to the next player. Each player successively whispers what that player believes he or she heard to the next. The last player announces the statement to the entire group. Errors typically accumulate in the retellings, so the statement announced by the last player differs significantly, and often amusingly, from the one uttered by the first. The game is often played by children as a party game or in the playground.
Now for the fun part. We created a digital version of this game. You now have the ability to play Telephone on your iPod Touch and iPhone. This application has push notifications as well as email invite features.
Please let us know what you think. We are launching this app next week and look forward to the hours of fun and messages passed around the world.
If you would like an advance copy or to be notified of launch please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We want to set a Guinness World Record for longest distance traveled with a Telephone Game
