In Read My Lips, players try to guess words and phrases by observing the lip movements of other players. The game is played in pairs who take alternating roles: a lipper, who mouths the words and phrases, and a lipreader. Each team takes turns to flick a spinner and move their lips token by the resultant number. The color of the lips of the space the token lands on determines the category of the word or phrase for the round. The spinner also points to the mode of play and the time limit for the round. One mode has the team's lipper performing for all to guess, another mode makes the play private to the team. Yet another makes it a free for all. The lipper cannot make any sound or gesture; otherwise, his team forfeits its turn. The first team to get two words in each of all 6 categories wins the game.
