The Great Language Game is a challenging game that has you try to "distinguish between some sixty or so languages based on their sound alone." It sounds easy, but it's actually harder than it seems for some obscure languages.

There are perhaps six or seven thousand languages in the world. Even so-called hyperpolyglots, people who learn to speak six or more fluently, barely scratch the surface. You and I will never be able to communicate in all these languages without machine aids, but learning to identify what's being spoken near us, that's within our reach.
