If you’ve been watching The Ellen DeGeneres Show you should have noticed Ellen playing a relatively interesting card game, and now you can too.

The premise of Heads Up! is very simple. You literally put your device on your head while guessing what word is on as your friends try and describe it to you.

It’s like charades, but better!

Players can choose from a slew of themed decks, each chock full of exciting words to guess. And if that is not enough, additional decks can be purchased in-game.

A key feature I really liked was how players could record the antics of their friends. So if you got a word that required ridiculous body language to describe, you can tape it down from within the app for future laughs. You can also choose to share it with the world via the different social media platforms.

I found this game to be ideal and perfect for some family bonding time, sitting down by the couch with the family after dinner letting everyone have a go at it. The game also works great as entertainment for gatherings and parties, as it is best played with a moderately large amount of players.

I loved the convenience rendered too, simply tilt your phone up or down to skip or move on to the next round.

This is one game you’d want to have your friends around to play with. For $0.99, I’d definitely buy it again.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:Yes

Learning Curve:NA

Who Is It For:Gatherings and bonding moments

What I Like:The video function allows for priceless gags and moments to be captured

What I Don't Like:For a paid app, why should additional decks be made for purchase and not free?

Final Statement:You'll love it
