If you have a board game lover on your Christmas shopping list or you're looking for a hilarious way to shake things up at your next festive family gathering, then I insist you get them the game "Hearing Things."

It's a lip-reading challenge game where one person on your team wears a pair random noise blasting headphones while the other person reads them short phrases from the deck of cards.

The object is to get the phrase correct and rack up as many points as you can to beat the other teams.

I recently tried it at an ugly Christmas party and hilarity ensued.
