It's an old saying that's now in game form via Team Play, a new card game from WizKids and Schmidt Spiele. In the game, pairs of players are looking to complete objectives, but they're unable to directly say exactly what their goal is. Players will have to find other means of communication and understanding if they want to come out on top.

From the announcement:
WizKids is excited to announce the card game,Team Play, is now available in North American game stores! Licensed from Schmidt Spiele, you and your partner work together to complete your mission cards and earn points before the other team(s). These missions are various combinations of numbers and/or colors, such as 2 pairs of uneven numbers, or having 3 low numbers, or 5 consecutive red numbers, etc.
Unable to directly say what your goals are, you and your teammate must be able to read each other’s needs, helping to accomplish missions by passing crucial cards. The other team(s) are also trying to accomplish missions, so you must work smart and fast in order to score the most points. You are hard pressed to do this on your own, so team work is the key to winning!
Don’t have an even number of players? That’s okay, the rule book goes over an odd player count version of the game. Players have a larger hand count, but cannot pass cards between anyone. You are a team of one in a 3 and 5 player games, but the goal remains the same. Complete missions and earn more victory points then the other players.
