Each round, only one of the pre-designated team members can directly listen to the question and answer it. If he/she is able to answer correctly, the team is awarded a point and then he/she must mouth the answer to his team-mate sitting opposite to him, who would be listening to loud music on earphones, thereby making it very hard to judge the answer. If the listener is able to guess correctly within three attempts, the team also receives massive bonus points. The team with the most points when the rounds finish wins.

The Watchers of the Wall, comes with a board full of challenges. The game begins by granting access to only one of the challenges while all others remain inaccessible.
