At the beginning of each round, one player, The Reader, picks up a card. Printed on one side of the card are background notes on a foreign language. On the other side are six words in that language, plus an English definition of each word.
The Reader reads one word aloud, revealing the language from which the word comes, but not the meaning of the word. Each other player has to ‘translate’ the given word and write a fake but plausible definition for it in an attempt to bluff fellow players into believing the definition is correct.
