These recorded sounds correspond to input switches, which are different colors and contain a lamp for lighting. Players respond to the reproduced player recorded messages and the lighting of the lamps of the input switches in playing any of a plurality of games, all of which use the messages and light in some form, stored in memory of the vocal game apparatus.

In a memory game, a player must correctly repeat a sequence of the colored input keys voiced by the vocal game apparatus by hitting the corresponding input keys in the proper order.
