Blackout Description:

Two teams consisted of a contestant and a celebrity guest. Team were given a "punny" phrase with four words missing. One member of the team had to describe each missing word for the other to guess. The twist was, the other team could "black out" several seconds of the description before the other team member heard it. If the teammate couldn't guess the word, the other team could guess. The first team to complete two of the punny phrases won.
