I am a high school German teacher and the seniors I have this year, I've taught since they were freshmen. In all humility, they are excellent German speakers now. I'm wondering if this game would be appropriate in the foreign language classroom. If so, at what level? How much speaking is required? I really don't know much about this game.

Vielen Dank! Thank you!

Rules aside, the game is itself language independent. Players are describing a card with a picture on it with a word, phrase or sound trying not to make it so obvious everyone picks the card nor so obsecure that no one picks the card. So doing so in German doesn't change the game from doing it in English (or any other language). Go for it and let us know how it goes.

I think, it is easier to make the clues less obvious in your mother tongue: you have a wider choice of idioms, expressions etc... However, this might be quite an interesting exercise in foreign language as well. A bit more challenging, but definitely not impossible for those who know the language well.
