Chinese whispers is a game in which one person whispers a message to another, which is passed through a line of people until the last player announces the message to the entire group. Twists and errors typically accumulate in the retellings, so the dialogue often differs significantly from the first person to the last.
Chinese whispers may also be known as broken telephone, operator, grapevine, whisper down the lane, gossip, secret message, the messenger game and pass the message.

Over 26 hours, the inaugural game travelled through seven languages and all six inhabited continents, starting in St Kilda Library, Melbourne, Australia as “Life must be lived as play”, and ending in Homer, Alaska, USA as “He bites snails.” … source: wikipedia.
