For example, if the song was “Chak De ,HO,Chak De India”, the first player would sing, “Chak”, the second player would sing, “De,” etc., until the team completes the song. If a player sings a wrong word, the team is out of the game. The team that completely sings the song in the shortest amount of time wins.
