In the Box
When you purchase the Watch Ya Mouth
game, you will get all the things necessary for playing the game with your family and friends. The game comes with over 100 playing cards that each contain words and phrases for you to say, a timer
so that you can time your opponents so they can say the words and phrases within a certain time limit, and ten mouthpieces. The mouthpieces are broken up into six adult mouthpieces and four child mouthpieces for when you are enjoying family play. Outside of these essential items, there is nothing else that needs to be utilized to play the game. The only thing left to bring is a good sense of humor and lots of laughter.
The Playing Cards
The playing cards that come with the Watch Ya Mouth game are the core of the game itself. The playing cards contain the words and phrases that you will need to say that your teammate will try and guess as you attempt to say them clear enough for them to understand. The cards are color
coordinated and can be mixed together. The cards are arranged by level of difficulty as some cards contain phrases with more words than others. Some of the cards may only contain two words to say while others contain four words or more. The longer phrases are made up of words that are more difficult to say making the game funnier, yet more difficult to play. In the beginning, it may be more useful to play
with the cards that have just two words on them so that you can get comfortable with wearing the mouthpiece. Eventually, you can graduate to the longer, more difficult words and phrases that are funnier to say and create quite the show as you try and speak to your partner through a mouthpiece through your own laughter.
Since the game only comes with about 140 playing cards
, you will eventually go through all the cards in a short amount of time. There are expansion packs available for purchase so that you can keep the game going. The expansion packs come in a variety of categories. You can get the family-friendly cards that are the same style as the ones that come with the game when you purchase it. You can also get a card pack
that is geared specifically towards children with words and phrases that are kid-friendly and made to make children laugh. There is also the NSFW pack that is made strictly for adults. This pack of cards contains highly vulgar, lewd, or sexual words and phrases that make adults laugh because not only is the nature of the game funny, but the embarrassment at having to say some of these words out loud also adds a level of discomfort to the game that also makes adults laugh. What makes the game more fun to play is that a lot of the words and phrases in the expansion pack were sent in by fans of the game that came up with great ideas for the cards, so when you are using the expansion packs the phrases are truly authentic.
The part of the Watch Ya Mouth game that is the heart and soul of all the laughter and good times are the mouthpieces that come with the game. The mouthpieces are what causes it to be difficult for you to say the words that are on the cards. Not only do the mouthpieces prevent your lips from touching, but they also make the person wearing them look funny, which then adds to the hilarity of the game. The comical face
coupled with the fact that your speech is indecipherable creates the perfect environment for laughter.
To properly wear the mouthpiece, you have to place the piece under your lips. The mouthpieces are basically cheek lifters that elevate your cheeks up and away from your teeth exposing your teeth and keeping your lips as far apart as possible. The pieces are connected to a ring that allows you to easily put the mouthpiece in and out of your mouth without any discomfort or difficulty. The game comes with ten mouthpieces as the game is meant for up to ten players. With ten mouthpieces that means that everyone gets their own mouthpiece as sharing mouthpieces would not be ideal for anyone. The mouthpieces are broken down into six adult sized mouthpieces that should fit anyone’s mouth, and then four smaller mouthpieces that are meant for younger children in the event that you are enjoying family play with even the youngest of family members.
Cleaning the Mouthpieces
The makers and creators at Watch Ya Mouth did everyone a service by creating the mouthpieces out of plastic that is dishwasher safe. After the game has been played, all you have to do is put the mouthpieces on the top rack of your dishwasher in order to clean them. They can all be cleaned with your regular dishes
and dish detergent and left to dry. As soon as they are dried and cleaned they can be placed back into the game box so that they don’t get lost or go missing. The plastic is also durable enough for boiling water, so if you feel better boiling the mouthpieces to sterilize them, you can easily do so the old fashioned way.
FDA Approved Mouthpieces
The mouthpieces that come with the Watch Ya Mouth game have been FDA approved and CE certified. In other words, the mouthpieces are treated like medical devices that need to meet certain requirements in order for them to be sold to and used by human beings. With the FDA stamp of approval, consumers can rest assured that all the proper tests and certifications have been conducted in order to guarantee that the mouthpieces do not contain any harmful substances that could potentially make you or your loved ones sick. Since the mouthpieces are in your mouth for an extended period of time and also since they change the shape of your face, it is of the utmost importance that they are made from quality and healthy materials, and since they are, you can enjoy playing the Watch Ya Mouth game without any fear that there are any contaminants seeping into your body through the mouthpiece.
The CE certification is just another way to guarantee that the product has been reviewed and tested and your family is safe
and can have fun.
How the Game Got Started
Watch Ya Mouth got started as a Kickstarted campaign. Like other games on the market that took a similar route, Watch Ya Mouth was the brainchild of a bunch of friends who wanted to create a game to make game night more fun. The idea came to them while watching a movie
where the main character is having dental work done and is wearing a mouthpiece. During the scene, she tries to speak but can’t. The Watch Ya Mouth creators thought that scene was simply hilarious and from that, they decided to create a game that included the mouthpiece and trying to say words and phrases. They put their idea on Kickstarter and before long they raised all the money they needed to create and distribute the game. Over time, the group has sold over two million copies of the game to adoring fans worldwide helping to make people laugh and enjoy the good times they are sharing with family and friends.
The game has become so popular in fact that it has been seen on several morning talk shows around America and popular TV shows that have highlighted how funny and entertaining the game truly is.

The game not only places your child into a social group setting where they can openly communicate and talk to other kids as well as adults, but the nature of the game makes even the most shy child come out of his or her shell. Everyone that plays the game finds themself in a hilarious and somewhat embarrassing position that eases a lot of the social tension that some kids may feel.
