Charades have long been a staple of TV game shows, and "Body Language" provided a return to the durable format. Two contestants, each paired with a celebrity, competed in this game. In round one, the celebrity member of the team pantomimes as many of five words or phrases as possible to the contestant in 60 seconds. Each correctly-guessed word is placed in an often-puny word puzzle containing seven blanks; at least two spaces will always be left blank. If the contestant correctly guessed the puzzle, he/she won $100; an incorrect guess allowed the contestant member of the opposing team to fill in any one of the remaining blanks. Round 2 was played identically, with the contestant members of the team pantomiming the clues and the celebrities trying to decipher the puzzles; correct guesses were now worth $250.

A television cross between Charades and Fill-In-The Blank Puzzles
Contestants were paired with celebrities, and players took turns acting out a series of words... After 60 seconds of charades, those word correctly identified were placed into a fill-in-the-blank puzzle... The guesser then had to identify the thing described in the fill-in-the-blank puzzle... If the guesser could not do this, a member of the opposing team was allowed to reveal one of the remaining blanks, and make a guess... This continued until the puzzle was correctly identified. Rounds were worth 100 and 250 points each, with 500 points winning a match. In the bonus round, the contestant was given 60 seconds to identify 10 words (acted by the celebrity partner), and received $100 for each correct word. In addition, they were then given 20 seconds to identify 3 additional words. If all three words were identified, the contestant received 10x the amount won in the previous round, for a possible total of $10,000.
