EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Hearing Things, from Hasbro Gaming is the Lip-Reading challenge game, for 4-to-8 players, ages 12-and-up. Hearing Things requires 2 AAA batteries, not included. The game comes with speech-canceling headphones, 150 cards, and an instruction sheet. The object of the game is to read your teammates lips, while wearing the headphones. The headphones plays voices and noises for 60 seconds while your teammates read from the cards. The double-sided cards contain a total of 4 totally random phrases. You won't be able to hear your teammates and you should keep guessing until you have gotten it right. After 60 seconds, your turn is over and the next team goes. Collect the cards you've guessed correctly, and the team with the most cards after three rounds, wins. The fun with Hearing Things is all about the incorrect answers - so players should not be shy when guessing. As with many party games, winning is the least important part of playing - it's all about the silliness. 

Is It Fun?
Yes - you and friends and family will have a blast trying to guess what your teammates are saying. The fun is all about the incorrect answers! 
Who It’s For
Lip-readers and party-game players, ages 12+. Younger children can also join in the fun.  
What To Be Aware Of
The voice-cancelling headphones are a bit noisy and can be unpleasant.  This game is not for noise-sensitive players.
