I really enjoyed using a free knockoff version of this app with my friends and family, so i thought it would be worth it to pay $1.99 to get the original version. I was immediately disappointed to see that when you open the app, practically the whole screen is filled with ridiculously priced decks of cards they want you to buy. There are barely any free decks even though you already paid 😐😐😐
crashing
by Channeeeellll on 2022/01/15 19:12
this game cool n all but it can’t go 10 minutes without crashing. really makes me mad.
Great game!
by Jbedolla on 2022/01/09 21:06
Love it and great deals on new decks
Too many ads for a Purchase app
by Babygirl102020 on 2022/01/09 05:18
Very disappointing how many ads and In store purchases are on the app!! This took away from the family fun game night.
fun but..
by Camounicorns on 2022/01/07 20:57
this game is super fun but i don’t like how you already have to pay for it and then pay for decks inside of it
Don’t purchase
by UAndEyeK on 2022/01/05 19:43
Charades is free and so much better. This app charges for games so there really isn’t a point in buying this app. Skip it.
Heads up game

The game makes is laugh so hard. It is the funniest and we rate it a ten. If we could go higher we would. Five star game. We got 15 baby in the new game for 2022. We are great.
Get this app
by bay.12 on 2022/01/03 04:54
I love this app so good for late night games or sleep overs and so much more I have so much fun playing this with my cousins friends and more
Love the game, but where’s The Office?
by Nori By Nature on 2022/01/03 04:22
I love playing this game with my family. Can you make a version for fans of The Office, pretty please?
Nope
by nitz1927 on 2022/01/03 00:47
I can’t pull the actual game up. It keeps taking me to advertisements of other games they are trying to get you to purchase. Anyone else have this problem?
Such Fun!
by Duchess826 on 2022/01/02 21:13
Has a blast with the family; great game!
You pay, just to pay more to actually play!
by JennaTwist on 2022/01/01 07:48
Don’t waste your money, you pay $1.99 for the privilege to spend more money…. Very little is included for $1.99- not worth it, very disappointed. Will delete, big waste of $2.00!!!!!!!
Love This Game!
by L@c3yB on 2022/01/01 06:03
I play this game every family or friend function! So fun! I love Ellen for this! Thank you!!
U hate this app it took my money
by lushena on 2021/12/31 06:14
So I did not pay for the app and it took it off my card anyway
Paid 1.99 for a couple small decks
by MarcFromage on 2021/12/30 05:06
Paid $1.99 because the photo in the App Store said “Choose from over 75 decks”… no where did it indicate each individual additional deck costs $2 each and to buy access to to all decks is $20. Do not waste your money here, just download a free knock off version from the App Store. $2 just gets you access to sample decks (most apps this would be the free content, instead… you pay for the sample version and you have to pay 10x more for the actual app version). Just ridiculous!
Bad
by jcool6482 on 2021/12/27 00:09
It’s comes on...goes to my decks list then goes to iPads home page but works fine on my iPhone...n it says works on my iPad
Very nice game to liven up a dead party
by Flawznall314 on 2021/12/26 08:00
I keep this game on my phone . And it has been a HIT when I break it out at family gatherings. Thanks ELLEN and crew for a super awesome game !!!
Broken

Way too many ads in paid version
by RMLA2021 on 2021/12/24 23:47
If i’m buying the app, I dont want a landmine of ads within the app selling me more decks. major turnoff
Doesn’t work
by Gard99 on 2021/12/24 14:10
I paid the fee and downloaded the app and get nothing. It open the app and it freezes up and shuts right down. I tried to re download it and still nothing. Waste of money.
Paid to get advertisements
by UnBlock MeBrain on 2021/12/23 10:17
LOUD! My phone is on silent, volume turned all the way down. I purchase the app, we had been having fun with a free knock-off so surely the real thing will be a blast right? App is downloaded. And I open it up. BLARING music tgat won’t stop. Why can’t I find some app settings button?!? All I want to do is make the sound stop or quieter. The sensory overload kept me from mentally processing what the app was doing or tried to do; until I read another review. Pay $2 to get a 25 minute advertisement to buy packs of cards; and per other reviews if you buy “all” packs, you don’t get all packs. WB got very greedy with this one, apparently digital gaming is killing their business for them to stoop to tactics like this. I used the report a problem to request a refund as the app didn’t work as I expected it to. I would never, no not ever, have expected to be subjected to a 25 minute ad, with no way to bypass it, in any game, much less one I just paid to download. This game re-taught me to read critical reviews; especially for pay to download apps.
Charged my family twice for the same decks
by $20 SCAMMED TRASH GAME on 2021/12/23 01:52
My dad bought the packs and I wanted them on my phone, but the game charged again for the same packs. Restoring doesn’t work, family sharing should transition packs. Scammed for $40 dollars. Want a refund
Rip off!!!
by It's ok.com on 2021/12/22 06:45
Don’t bother buying, app doesn’t work on my iPad. I don’t recommend it because every time I go to open it shuts off in a few seconds. I have never even been able to play the game and I’ve had it downloaded for a few months hoping they would work out the kinks. Disappointed because I’ve played it before with friends and wanted to play with my kids.
Support Family Sharing
by MC Hampster on 2021/12/20 19:00
Spent $20 on the big pack only to realize Family Sharing isn’t supported. That’s ridiculous.
WARNING FAMILY SHARING NOT SUPPORTED
by jrv116psu on 2021/12/19 15:43
I bought the full pack for big $$ thinking my kids could play with each other too.. not so.. this developer has not enabled in app sharing which is now a feature for App Store apps.. Shame that they don’t enable this as it seems like a legitimate feature that would allow my kids to play without me … very frustrating and from reading the dev info it looks like it’s pretty easy to implement.

Not all decks included….
by Macnguyem on 2021/12/17 05:18
Paid $1.99 and only got 8 decks.
False Advertisement
by Aaron Boggs on 2021/12/16 17:58
It’s a great game but the sales ads our misleading. Currently there is a special to get “our entire collection”. However after paying the high $$ you find that their entire collection doesn’t really include all the decks and you must pay more money to get the rest. This isn’t the first time the app hasn’t delivered products it has promised. While we love the game itself; the game rips you off with the false advertising.

Lazy Updates
by mister resetti on 2021/12/14 21:43
The pop culture pack update has barely any cards. I played two rounds and we already had repeats. I tried to play a third and it was a combination of all of the ones in the first and second round. As a test, I ran through all the cards and they repeated the whole list after maybe <20 cards? Really disappointing when the Pop Culture pack is the most important. Please add more cards.
Frozen
by lulabird on 2021/12/14 00:03
Does not actually work. Stays frozen on “Place On Forehead” screen
In app purchases are NOT shareable
by stefanopolis123 on 2021/12/12 04:23
It’s pretty greedy and absurd to not allow sharing of in app purchase on family accounts
App not working
by Socalou on 2021/12/12 03:29
I was able to download and start the app. However, once I picked my deck, the game freezes with the “place on forehead” screen. There is no countdown, and I have been able to play the game. Even after deleting and reinstalling. I am using an iPhone 13 pro. Please update your code!
Too Much Going On
by Emunneeee on 2021/12/11 18:21
Refund Please. Way too much going on and not easy to navigate with all the pop ups. Also there’s not a kid section. How do I get a refund. Not even worth $2.
Remove decks
by Ragnarian^5 on 2021/12/10 23:08
App will not let you remove inappropriate decks. Please fix.
Don’t bother
by Brennalm on 2021/12/08 01:07
The user interface is garbage. Super hard to navigate unless you’re looking to pay extra money, even though I already paid! I wish I could get a refund!
Love this!

Total rip off. No game!

Should be reported and want refund. All adds and can’t play. Apple should be ashamed for selling and does Ellen D know that she is ripping people off!
Why did I pay?
by E Cus on 2021/11/30 02:51
We used to be able to customize card decks for studying and other fun learning opportunities. Am I missing something? The update doesnt show that capability and seems to be a money grub to buy more decks ugh

Misleading
by cking023 on 2021/10/23 04:47
I’m sure this game is fun but the description is VERY misleading!!!!!! Description states it includes 40+ decks which is not true. There are only 8 included decks upon initial purchase. Then it requires additional purchase for any other decks. There are 50+ decks to purchase additionally. I feel scammed based on the description.
Paid $3 and ran out of pop culture cards right away

It doesn’t work…was looking forward to playing this game with the students. However, once you click on the game. It tells you to place on forehead but it freezes after that. Disappointed
No features/customization. Constant annoying pop-ups!
by John Ruml on 2021/10/18 00:16
The expectation when you buy a paid app is that you're *not* going to be inundated with a million little pop ups expecting you accidentally click/spend more money. the core gameplay is fun and I don't mind that they add different pop culture references behind paid additional "decks", but the 60 second rounds are far too short and there's no way to lengthen them. Worse yet, between every 60 second round is an ad that takes up most of the screen estate trying to sucker you into buying paid features. Very sorry state for the game to be in when you spend more time trying to click through the menus than actually playing the game. Don't recommend it all.
Really Fun!
by Tots_liv on 2021/10/13 14:04
We played this game while we were waiting in lines at Disney. It was really fun and it made time pass by quickly. I definitely recommend this game when you have nothing to do and have a group of friends with you!

by Trigal3477 on 2021/09/26 14:49
I used to play this game all the time with my family, and had bought a ton of decks for it. Early this year, it started crashing every time I opened the app, it wouldn’t even get to the deck choice. I got a new iPhone- I went from a 7 to a 12 mini, thinking that might help. But no luck. The app continues to crash and I cannot get to the game. My phone is up to date with the latest iOS. Would love to be able to use the app again and change this to a 5-star rating! Please help!
BEST APP EVER

Good for one night
by guywhoistiredofwaiting on 2021/08/29 20:07
Is it worth a dollar? Not if you plan to play it on more than one occasion. Played most of the default decks in one night and now if I play the game it’s entirely boring. This game is a dollars worth of repetitive charades. You are much better off playing charades the old fashioned way. Not to mention how ridiculously priced it is to buy a new deck. You could easily look up charades prompts and fill a hat and have endless free fun rather than play this and have to pay to have fun for and hour or so one time.
Family Fun time

I recently switched from Android to iPhone and I am trying to access the decks that I previously purchased. When I click restore purchases, it “loads” then goes to the top of the screen but never shows my previous purchases. None of the customer service emails that are listed on the site work and there is no customer service number! What a ripoff!

by BrittShinn on 2021/08/08 21:15
I’ve had heads up for a while and I love it. However, some of the original decks aren’t working. For example, when I try to use superstars or blockbuster movies the app crashes.

Best way to spend $1.00 ever!
by NowhereSomehow on 2020/03/23 01:24
Me and my family are constantly bored and can never find a game we all agree on. Whenever we introduced something into the house one person always says something negative about it and we end up abandoning it. Yesterday when I purchased this game, I had to entice the whole family to even get together to play this game. When I finally succeed in doing so we tried out the accent card list and we immediately all agreed this was the best game ever! This game really brought our family together after 3 years of complete utter boredom! Thank you! I really recommend getting the game, it’s not only good for family but it’s also a great game to play with freinds!
Customer Service, or lack there of and deck problems
by I love joeys! on 2019/06/22 00:23
I used to love this game. It was a weekly game night activity with my family. However, one day, the app would not even open before it crashed. So, as many people do when troubleshooting, I deleted and again downloaded the app. When downloading, it gave me the ‘family download’ message, and being the only option, I of course used it. When I opened the new app, I could not restore purchases because I “do not own the app.” I have tried everything I could, and having done so, I did what the app said and contacted them about the error. I have emailed probably around six times with no response in about a month. I have purchased 9 decks, some on one account and some from the phone I am trying to get them back on. I understand that they don’t family share, which is kind of dumb but not the issue. The issue is I spent money on decks to get on my phone. I cannot get them back and the “customer service” won’t even respond. I just want my decks back. I spent money on them and I am VERY disappointed in the app service department because they are NOT doing their job. IF YOU HAVE FAMILY SHARING DO NOT BUY DECKS OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR MONEY
Disappearing decks and the purple question mark?
by The Deck Collector on 2019/03/28 03:13
I LOVE LOVE LOOOVE this app! I have bought all the extra decks they have offered and tried to get all the free ones when they are offering them. Unfortunately this last time when I was trying to get the free Summertime by Halo Top deck it was not working and then it disappeared :( Also there is a deck that showed up one day that is purple with a yellow question mark. When I select that deck it freezes my app to where I have to completely quit out of the app and reload it to make it work again. I’m just wondering if anyone else is dealing with the same issue? I LOVE this game with all my heart and my goal is to own all of the decks! The only reason why I did not give this app 5 stars is because of the disappearing decks. It makes me very sad when I miss out on a deck. 😭 Other then that, I highly recommend this app because I doubt the missing decks doesn’t bother anyone else besides myself.
It’s ok... 😐😕
by JustEnderSlayin on 2021/02/24 19:50
This game costs a dollar sure but is it really worth it? The answer is NO. Ok I’ll admit it’s kind of fun but this game constantly crashes. Also coming back to how the game costs one dollar, the facts are that it only gives a few decks I’ve seen more on ripoff versions for FREE. And if you want more decks you’ve got to pay 20 bucks in 15 minutes or else it costs a whopping 100$!! But anyways if you’re looking to buy a fun family game or a game that you can play with friends, keep searching. Oh yeah one more thing. If your a developer and you’ve took the time time read this far thank you, and also about the constant crashing, this happens when I have my WiFi on and when I have my data on my phone on. Just saying, in case you want to fix this issue. (And I’ll change the rating to 5 star if that happens ;) .)
Don’t waist time...GET THIS APP NOW 😃😃😃😃
by Abcdfam on 2021/01/29 18:15
Ok so every Thursday me and my family (just my mom and brothers and sister) I said we should play sherades but then I thought of heads up! We played for 30 minutes we didn’t have a lot of time left, and we laughed SO HARD! We laughed so hard we stared laughing crying!! 😂😂 and one of them my brother said “poo?” XD I could not stop laughing!! , one thing that we look at is the packs , they cost money but my mom bought all of them cause she wanted us to have fun, if you don’t wanna waist your money, just use the top ones. Over all this is our family night game so I recommen this app so get it free!!!
Need to fix some bugs.
by Emily and Jessica on 2020/11/15 12:00
Well before I get into the bugs I just want to say this game isn’t expensive to waste on my whole family likes it. Me and my sister were bored in quarantine and we want to play a game but all of my board/card games are boring, so I said “ do you want to play heads up?” She insists. I purchased it anyways. We kept playing it and really love it. About the bugs, are very annoying. First of all, when I open a deck and press play instead of saying “ Put on your fore head” but it just flip over, Second of all the screen sometimes went blue and it is stuck there, Third of all after a deck the camera froze. All of the bugs can be only fix if I restart my phone 2 or 3 times. It is really annoying, I was hoping if you could fix it give me some advice.
Bait and switch
by SevonDuttles on 2020/11/14 05:16
I’ve played this game on a few other friends phones and absolutely love it, so I decided it was time that I give it a download. After I paid the $.99, I was prompted that they were offering a sale on some of their other packs to play for $20. It was over a $100 value for just 20 bucks so I thought I was snagging a great deal! After I purchased the limited time offer, I was promptly notified that I had been charged $45 dollars instead of the 20 that I thought I was spending. After fuming about that for a few minutes, I still decided to play a few rounds so I booted up the game and selected a category only to get stuck on the “place on forehead” screen. I don’t know if either of these instances were possible bugs or glitches, but I’m very very displeased with how my experience has been thus far with Heads Up.
LOVE THE CRAP OUT OF IT but I have one suggestion!
by MaryJaneMarie on 2018/02/15 01:55
I’ll start by saying my spouse and I LIVE (went to type love, autocorrected to live, that also works, I’m going with it) this game, and we were super stoked to have the 90 second time limit! My suggestion would be to have the option to have a longer time limit...I’m absolutely certain that a chunk of your users smoke marijuana (legally, of course.....😑), and to be honest, the longer time limit is pretty darn necessary. I (I mean they...) would probably pay for it in an in app purchase, $1.99 sounds pretty good, just sayin’
Great game, but the more you spend, the less it works
by Floof Toob on 2020/09/23 05:57
I love this game and have bought all the decks. I greatly regret buying them, though. The more you buy, the less the game works. I can’t really even access most of the decks I’ve purchased because the game freezes or crashes as I attempt to scroll down. Also, every time you buy deck packages, it comes with a lot of build-your-own decks. That’s fine, but the problem is you have to scroll through dozens and dozens of blank decks to get to the decks you’ve paid for. There is no way to rearrange, prioritize, or delete decks. There is also no way to contact support to tell them of these issues or ask for a refund, since the game doesn’t work.
No features/customization. Constant annoying pop-ups!
by John Ruml on 2021/10/18 00:16
The expectation when you buy a paid app is that you're *not* going to be inundated with a million little pop ups expecting you accidentally click/spend more money. the core gameplay is fun and I don't mind that they add different pop culture references behind paid additional "decks", but the 60 second rounds are far too short and there's no way to lengthen them. Worse yet, between every 60 second round is an ad that takes up most of the screen estate trying to sucker you into buying paid features. Very sorry state for the game to be in when you spend more time trying to click through the menus than actually playing the game. Don't recommend it all.
Great game, but......
by J. Romano on 2017/12/06 05:07
After playing it for two nights straight with the same people, we’ve been through all the free decks and can easily give clues to achieve correct guesses. Gets boring quickly. Now of course, there are lots of other decks that can be purchased, but for .99¢ each and with no option to just purchase all decks for a “discounted” rate, I don’t think we’ll be playing for much longer unless something changes. Don’t get me wrong, we had lots of fun the first night, but come on. Had to purchase the app and now I’m supposed to purchase each add-on as well. Sorry Ellen. Im not that rich. Wanna help us out?
Lots of laugh
by Lizzy-21 on 2017/10/02 00:23
I love this game and its very addictive.i am a social worker in the foster care field and to alleviate our day my colleagues and I spend our lunch time playing this game. This definitely gives us a good laugh after stressful events. My only issue with app is that on my iPad once "it's times up" it automatically kicks me off the game which is very annoying. I have been using my iPhone but the iPad is better for the amount of people that are playing. Another issue the purchases don't sync the same in me iPad or iPhone don't know why. I hope this issue can be fixed. Other than that its an amazing game.
Great Game—Bothersome Issues with Gameplay
by 5monkeez on 2021/02/09 18:58
Our family plays this game every night after dinner. We love it. It’s the only game I’ve ever paid for extras. But there are fixes needed for for some of the decks. For example, the contrast for the Harry Potter cards is too soft—for some weird reason the cards don’t used the rich blue background and white text. This needs to be fixed ASAP. Also in the football deck, a card erroneously lists the “Stanford Cardinals.” Its singular: “Cardinal.” When this card comes up, we suddenly realize that the creator of the deck doesn’t know college football.
App Crashes before it Opens
by Mbera on 2020/06/02 05:54
Let me start by saying, I love playing this app so much! That said, I have been unable to open this app since the update. This has happened in the past, but I have been able to troubleshoot it by restarting my device or making sure my IOS was up to date. This time is different. When I click on the game app, I get the welcome screen for about a half second before it crashes. I’m afraid to delete and redone load the app because I have purchased about 15 decks over the last 4 years. I’m getting no responses from the email support and I’m very frustrated. I love this game. It’s is especially great to play while social distancing. Now, I have to rate it 1 star because I can’t even play it. Total bummer.
Lots of fun, but...
by SerenaG519 on 2020/11/22 14:17
This game is perfect for family fun, coworker team building and all around holiday ice breakers. People of all ages can enjoy. I’ve essentially played so much, I’ve exhausted the decks and am frequently getting repeats. When I went to purchase more decks, the button keeps loading a price and never lets me buy. We were going to buy 10-20 (to even 40!!) more decks and couldn’t get it to load despite app, phone, data/wifi restarts. Oh well, still love this game!
Really fun
by Poppy Dentri on 2020/03/26 21:46
This game is really a lot of fun and it’s easy for families to play anywhere at anytime as long as you have your phone,table,laptop or whatever your may be playing on. I saw a lot of people saying that it’s a rip off or it’s not fun and boring, but my family gets bored of games quickly, but we have been playing “Heads Up” for over 3 months now and we’re not bored! I do have one suggestion for you, if maybe you could make some more topics like celebrities and popular shoes\clothing brands. Thank you guys so much for making such a fun game!
New update.
by Ponder14 on 2020/05/29 12:49
Since the new update the game is freezing at the times up screen. I have tried restarting my phone and restarting the app multiple times. I have enjoyed this game for years now and hope this can be fixed. Just had another update and the same issues freezing at the times up screen. Please make sure that stops happening after updates. And yet again the app has issues after an update. This time the app completely crashes when trying to open it. Very disappointing.
Can’t share decks?!?
by Ken7795 on 2019/12/24 17:08
I purchased this app for my son in order for him to play with his friends as well as our family when waiting in various lines. It is rather annoying to have to buy additional decks, but I was shocked when I found out that the decks cannot be accessed by my own family members on their respective phones. I had downloaded the Harry Potter, Marvel bundle and Star Wars decks onto my phone with the reasonable expectation that my wife, son and daughter would be able to use them as well. It is understandable that Ellen DeGeneres would want to make money, but it is terribly petty and unbecoming to be this greedy. As I stated above, it is reasonable to charge money for specialty decks, but unscrupulous to not be transparent wherein these decks cannot be shared whilst the actual app can be shared.
Decks I paid for are gone & customer service app support won’t help
by Freeapplover2 on 2019/09/03 15:07
I’ve purchased many MANY decks over the years. I’ve tried downloading/redownloading & “Restoring My Deck Purchases” countless times on the App but nearly all my purchased decks are gone. They dissappeared, were wiped clean. The only option is to keep re-buying everything I’ve already paid for over & over to get it to stick. I’ve tried emailing Head’s Up App support numerous times w/ no response. They can continue to add new seasonal decks & do updates but they don’t have the decency to reply to paying customers who’ve helped contribute to this game’s profittable success. Can someone from support please kindly contact me!? I just want the game decks I paid for back (I have my iTunes receipt emails as proof!). Thank you.
Disappointed
by Satisfied robloxian on 2020/04/26 18:15
Ok say my Moms friends birthday was coming up so we had a party we were thinking fun games to play so my mom got the app and this is where it all started going down hill so we discussed to get the karaoke pack it was 1.99 so my mom said what the heck sure she bought and it was all songs that nobody knew so then we saw an Avengers one so we were like ohh okay so my mom but it for 3.99 and some of the questions was from D.C sand some of them didn’t even make sense so I wrote review to just tell y’all don’t buy and of the packs unless you like not common songs. P.s the game branded is amazing on the app and it’s free.
Great game but you need to fix this
by Coolcatgothacked on 2018/11/18 01:25
I just recently bought the game and personally I think it is amazing. I bought a few of the packs and one of them was the write your own deck. It was working well but when we started to play after we got the word it wouldn’t go to the next card it was stuck on that card and we couldn’t get it to go to the next. That needs to be fixed whenever you can or we just do t know how to play heheh. Other than that amazing game I’d recommend this to everyone I know but pls fixed this asap or I would like a refund
So much fun, only one complaint
by thisnicknamemakesnosense on 2018/09/28 13:36
This game is soooo much fun and it’s great for playing with friends, there is only one drawback to the costume decks (which are ¢99 each), there is no way to reset them! I have bought 3 costume decks already and created about 600+ cards on each but they’ve gotten boring since they’re quite old, and the only way to reset them is to swipe left on each card which would take forever. I just hope they add a costume deck reset button because it would be very useful and would compensate better the ¢99 we pay for each.
Paid to get advertisements
by UnBlock MeBrain on 2021/12/23 10:17
LOUD! My phone is on silent, volume turned all the way down. I purchase the app, we had been having fun with a free knock-off so surely the real thing will be a blast right? App is downloaded. And I open it up. BLARING music tgat won’t stop. Why can’t I find some app settings button?!? All I want to do is make the sound stop or quieter. The sensory overload kept me from mentally processing what the app was doing or tried to do; until I read another review. Pay $2 to get a 25 minute advertisement to buy packs of cards; and per other reviews if you buy “all” packs, you don’t get all packs. WB got very greedy with this one, apparently digital gaming is killing their business for them to stoop to tactics like this. I used the report a problem to request a refund as the app didn’t work as I expected it to. I would never, no not ever, have expected to be subjected to a 25 minute ad, with no way to bypass it, in any game, much less one I just paid to download. This game re-taught me to read critical reviews; especially for pay to download apps.
Fun! But...
by Sue Dunnym on 2017/08/19 23:38
I've had this app on my phone for 2 years now and have had lots of fun playing it w/family & friends. I've used it while waiting in line for concerts and it definitely makes the time fly in a very enjoyable way. The only problem I'm now experiencing is the inability to make my own cards. I've enjoyed that feature a lot and have written to the developers for help, but I have yet to hear from them. I will update this review when/if this problem is taken care of.
Increase the game time
by Kiev girl on 2019/05/17 19:58
All is great in this game except the 1 minute limit on the game. I wish it was something you can alter, as in one minute you get only few answers. Especially if you take a deck where you have to act it out without words. That takes longer and the game is over after just a few questions. Also the one we play with kids. Same thing. They need more time to think about it and get really upset that it’s over so soon. It discourages then and they don’t feel like playing again cuz they feel like failures.
Heads up
by Maddie or Maddy on 2018/05/13 11:23
I like this game because it is where if it is game night or something like that it is where you and your family can play it is like one person has the phone on there four head and then the other people have to acted it out then with the person who has the phone and if they did not get it right then it is on to the nexts persons turn also if you get one right you would put your face down then put it back up.
Lack of privacy
by concrned mom 119123 on 2020/09/01 05:53
Bought this for my kids because all their friends have it. I noticed at the end of the round, that it was displaying a live video taken from the selfie camera on the front of my phone. There was no option to turn it off within the game. Actually I couldn't find options at all in the game. I went to my phone settings and found camera access was enabled. I never got a pop up requesting permission. Lots of other pop ups trying to sell additional decks. And the game freezes up whenever you scroll. Overall I'm very disappointed. I don't expect glitch issues from a paid app. And I won't tolerate privacy issues.
Endless fun from this app
by Cedes360 on 2020/05/31 06:11
Idk, it’s fun to pass the time. When we’re bored me and my friends play this for literal hours. Some of the decks are a little hard but it’s fun when we actually know something in the category. Endless inside jokes from playing this game. One of my fave apps. It’s always annoying when there’s in app purchases but some of the decks are so fun I don’t mind paying the like two dollars for them.
Great but....
by Elite_Inferno on 2018/09/04 20:11
Ok there is just a few things to adjust for one I’m a kid so I can only pretty much play the animal one 🤷‍♂️ and I’m not buying the kid one because that one is just meh. So maybe add another version and also i would like to be able to set the amount of time and adjust some things but overall if you don’t have anything to do and you want to kill time with friends then buy this. It still is great even without my recommendations because I play this when waiting for lines in six flags and it is just perfect.
What happened ?
by whatarethis on 2017/10/10 08:23
I first downloaded this game 6 months ago, and my boyfriend and I loved it. I wound up deleting it because we stopped using it as often, and just recently brought it back. I had purchased several decks and now they won't re download. Also, the constant ads before each round are ridiculous. Having to sit through a 30 second ad every time I play a round led me to just deleting the app again. Also, since it won't let me re download my decks, we've just been playing the free rounds, and more than a couple times I've sat through the ad, and then the app dies. When I bring it back, it says I already used my free round. Overall, very unhappy with how it's changed
I L O V E THIS GAME!!!
by maya-cool girl on 2018/05/28 02:23
This is a very great game and when I played it with my friends and family, we were all cracking UP!!! This game is so super and since we all love it, we play it EVERY dang DAY!!! And on the every dang day, we play it till my phone dies😀😀😀. And also when I wanna do another deck, you have to pay. I’m not getting mad or frustrated, it’s just I wanna play the decks that you need to buy that you won’t get to play. thank you for listening inventor of this app. Ps:please reply when you get my point. Thank you 😊
Allen is the best
by 0blah0 on 2017/12/02 20:05
I love your game it is fantastic my husband even plays and is silly which is really hard for him. He also has no knowledge of anything current which makes it all the more fun. When we first got married he didn’t know who Taylor Swift was. I not much better to be honest. But you bring happiness and fun to our home Thanks so much Ellen for being you. I couldn’t help myself I thought the name thing was hilarious. Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Fun, but their sales are misleading
by MercyMerciful on 2021/04/25 23:26
This is a fun game, but be sure to read the fine print and double check your purchases. I was just charged $10 for a ‘free’ Oscars deck that I got a toast notification about being free for today only and I used the toast notification to find it. Overpriced for a single deck in the first place, let alone the misrepresentation of saying it’s free when it wasn’t. There’s no way to contact the developer in the app, so if they don’t see this and correct the charge I will have to contact my bank to request a chargeback
Best quarantine game
by Reccomendef on 2020/06/04 10:03
This game is so much fun me and my family play every day. I love to play this game but it doesn’t work on my mom’s phone. I recommend this game to people who have a lot of free time on their hands. I recommend this game! I love the category, just kidding it’s so fun and age appropriate if you’re a parent reading this review. The Block buster movie category is very very much to hard for me. Please download this game and stay safe! 😀
Restoring Purchases is not Working
by SSStoopid on 2017/10/07 07:58
Deer Ellen, My name is Gage. I’m 11 years old and a member of family sharing with my mom and my dad. My dad downloaded BYOD (build your own deck) so I could download it thru family sharing on my own device. Ellen. No matter how hard I try. I am unable to download it to my device. My dad has even tried to buy it again but that didn’t work either. Ellen. I love how you play heads up! And I will be happy to give five stars when I can download or buy BYOD. From Gage .L. Simpson. P.S I challenge you to a game of heads up! ❤️💜
Not for the family
by Kathrynelise.art on 2020/02/09 21:35
I like this game but the biggest problem I have with it is just how hard it is to play with people who aren't just millennials or super on top of current entertainment and stuff. So few decks can be played by a wide spread of generations. Ive played with teenagers and they don't get most of the references. And Ive played with my parents and they don't get all the other references. Its too “pop culture-ey”.... I wish there were more decks that could be topics everyone might know... like more educational decks or something like that.
Getting an error message
by xsuix on 2017/12/25 00:37
I bought this app awhile ago and didn’t have any problems with it. I just downloaded it again (had removed it off my old phone awhile back) and for some reason, keep getting an “SKERROR DOMAIN” message whenever I want to restore my purchases or try to download a free deck. I’ve tried deleting and re-downloading the app itself throughout the day but I still get the same message. It says to contact them if it keeps happening but the developer website link just goes to the ellentube page??? I didn’t see anything about how to connect with someone other than to appear on the show, etc. Does anyone know how to fix this?
Best Game Ever
by Gfgfgftttt on 2020/12/02 05:00
This game is easy to learn, fun to play with family and friends, and always gets a good laugh. I love how it records so you can always save the funny ones if you’d like. Honestly the best game ever! Definitely would recommend. The only thing is I wish they had some more free categories but honestly I use this app so much I don’t mind $ for some extra sets! The Just Kidding Cards are my favorite Section!
Love it can I say some thoughts
by Cara222111222 on 2020/11/19 23:15
Maybe people can make one and ther can be copitesen to see how good we are and if we win we can get it free and maybe it can have all different games but has to go with it like you pick a card and give clues and the computer or something like that and maby add something so you can play by your self can’t wait until you write back
Love this ❤️
by Callahan Fam on 2018/07/29 18:24
I just downloaded this app and I love it so much! My cousin was just visiting for 2 weeks and when we were bored we would just play this. It comes with a good amount of free decks and the ones that aren’t free are only 99 cents. I do have a suggestion for a new deck though. You could make one of the greatest showman. It would be so fun to try to act out and guess the scenes. So everyone that reads this... download this app!
Great fun!
by SOFTBALL🥳 on 2020/04/20 16:28
SUPER FUN AND ADDICTING GAME! My only concern is with the weekly changing mystery deck. I have had the same mystery deck for over a month know and don’t get me wrong I LOVE branded it is actually my favorite deck but I would love to try some new ones. Please let me know if I miss understood what the “mystery deck” does and I will be happy to give y’all 5 stars! If I was correct I hope you are able to fix it! Again love this game...I just want it to be the best, most functional, and fun it can be! Thanks!
Used to be a five star game
by Brandoncomandon on 2019/06/26 02:57
I played this game when it first came out, it was an awesome family game and we had a lot of fun playing it. After a while the limited amount of cards got boring and repetitive, sadly the content included in the price feels more like a free to play game not a game you actually have to buy. It’s extremely annoying to want to play but have to purchase everything separately. There are plenty of apps like this one that are almost exactly the same but include more content and allow you to unlock other packs without paying money, and those apps are free.
App runs great but support is horrible
by quentin2502 on 2020/01/11 13:11
My family and I play this game all the time together and never had an issue. That is until I upgraded my phone. It says that you can restore all of the packs you purchase in the app but that is not entirely true. You can only restore the individual ones you purchase. If you purchase one of their sale pack sets you will not restore those. I have emailed support numerous time and there has been 0 response. If you are going to buy things in this game make sure you buy each one individually so that you don’t have this problem.
App Keeps Shutting Down
by ericaokaay on 2018/05/27 20:56
I played this game when it first came out and it was a fun, and the new packs have definitely made it even better. I also love that you can play a free round of a pack you don’t own if you watch an ad, but every time the ad ends, the app shuts down, and the option for a free round is no longer available for that pack so I just have to buy the pack to know how it is. Hope this gets fixed and I somehow get my free rounds back because I never got to play them. For that I have to take off two stars
I love this game and it’s great for the entire family.
by MGallucci83 on 2018/02/04 21:10
We have such a great time playing. There is a deck for everyone including each of our favorite shows. We play at dinner, we play at Disneyland while in line, we play for family game night. It’s so much fun and we always look for new decks. And for just adults it’s fun to see us all try to guess, just add alcohol and the silliness quadruples. Get this app, you won’t regret it.
PLEASE FIX!
by StroJesd on 2020/04/23 03:15
Although the game is super fun and exciting, unfortunately almost every game gets stuck on the “Pass” screen when we pass and runs down our time from whatever time was left. For example if we had 40 seconds left the Pass screen stays put until the 40 seconds run off. Initially I thought it was a penalty for passing but then I realized this was almost every game were a question was passed. It truly interrupts the momentum and any possible achievements.
Love the app! Klondike not so much :(
by Probie0608 on 2021/06/13 16:20
We love playing this game! I’m up to 11 decks since I got the free Shake It Up deck yesterday. I followed the instructions 3 different times yesterday for getting a Klondike coupon and an Oops! error message appears on the Klondike website. I can call them Monday but want you to know that while I very much appreciate the free deck this is a frustrating experience with Klondike.
Love the game, lost a deck
by B4Starfire on 2019/09/04 00:29
Love the game. Tons of free content if you pay attention. Would leave as five stars but I have to remove half a star since my Transformers Deck was removed (and i guess i have to round up since there are no half stars). Last time I was in the game, my Bumblebee deck “Dynamic Duos” was glitched and wouldn’t open. It was off to the side at the bottom of my archive and I couldn’t move it. Now it is missing. Was this deck removed from everyone that had it in their collection?
Ughhh
by 🦍🐘🦓 on 2019/06/28 22:28
A nice game but what annoys me is that you have to pay for like all of the categories! You already have to pay a dollar for the game do they really think that I am going to spend another ten dollars to get what seven more categories?!? It is really frustrating because when you first get the game you only get nine sets to choose from and the only way to get more is to pay. It is a good game and enjoy playing in but am constantly annoyed with the fact that I will only be able to play certain ones

I really enjoyed using a free knockoff version of this app with my friends and family, so i thought it would be worth it to pay $1.99 to get the original version. I was immediately disappointed to see that when you open the app, practically the whole screen is filled with ridiculously priced decks of cards they want you to buy. There are barely any free decks even though you already paid 😐😐😐
crashing
by Channeeeellll on 2022/01/15 19:12
this game cool n all but it can’t go 10 minutes without crashing. really makes me mad.
Great game!
by Jbedolla on 2022/01/09 21:06
Love it and great deals on new decks
Too many ads for a Purchase app
by Babygirl102020 on 2022/01/09 05:18
Very disappointing how many ads and In store purchases are on the app!! This took away from the family fun game night.
fun but..
by Camounicorns on 2022/01/07 20:57
this game is super fun but i don’t like how you already have to pay for it and then pay for decks inside of it
Don’t purchase
by UAndEyeK on 2022/01/05 19:43
Charades is free and so much better. This app charges for games so there really isn’t a point in buying this app. Skip it.
Heads up game
by Ralf1382 on 2022/01/04 22:08
The game makes is laugh so hard. It is the funniest and we rate it a ten. If we could go higher we would. Five star game. We got 15 baby in the new game for 2022. We are great.
Get this app
by bay.12 on 2022/01/03 04:54
I love this app so good for late night games or sleep overs and so much more I have so much fun playing this with my cousins friends and more
Love the game, but where’s The Office?
by Nori By Nature on 2022/01/03 04:22
I love playing this game with my family. Can you make a version for fans of The Office, pretty please?
Nope
by nitz1927 on 2022/01/03 00:47
I can’t pull the actual game up. It keeps taking me to advertisements of other games they are trying to get you to purchase. Anyone else have this problem?
Such Fun!
by Duchess826 on 2022/01/02 21:13
Has a blast with the family; great game!
You pay, just to pay more to actually play!
by JennaTwist on 2022/01/01 07:48
Don’t waste your money, you pay $1.99 for the privilege to spend more money…. Very little is included for $1.99- not worth it, very disappointed. Will delete, big waste of $2.00!!!!!!!
Love This Game!
by L@c3yB on 2022/01/01 06:03
I play this game every family or friend function! So fun! I love Ellen for this! Thank you!!
U hate this app it took my money
by lushena on 2021/12/31 06:14
So I did not pay for the app and it took it off my card anyway
Paid 1.99 for a couple small decks
by MarcFromage on 2021/12/30 05:06
Paid $1.99 because the photo in the App Store said “Choose from over 75 decks”… no where did it indicate each individual additional deck costs $2 each and to buy access to to all decks is $20. Do not waste your money here, just download a free knock off version from the App Store. $2 just gets you access to sample decks (most apps this would be the free content, instead… you pay for the sample version and you have to pay 10x more for the actual app version). Just ridiculous!
Bad
by jcool6482 on 2021/12/27 00:09
It’s comes on...goes to my decks list then goes to iPads home page but works fine on my iPhone...n it says works on my iPad
Very nice game to liven up a dead party
by Flawznall314 on 2021/12/26 08:00
I keep this game on my phone . And it has been a HIT when I break it out at family gatherings. Thanks ELLEN and crew for a super awesome game !!!
Broken

Way too many ads in paid version
by RMLA2021 on 2021/12/24 23:47
If i’m buying the app, I dont want a landmine of ads within the app selling me more decks. major turnoff
Doesn’t work
by Gard99 on 2021/12/24 14:10
I paid the fee and downloaded the app and get nothing. It open the app and it freezes up and shuts right down. I tried to re download it and still nothing. Waste of money.
Paid to get advertisements
by UnBlock MeBrain on 2021/12/23 10:17
LOUD! My phone is on silent, volume turned all the way down. I purchase the app, we had been having fun with a free knock-off so surely the real thing will be a blast right? App is downloaded. And I open it up. BLARING music tgat won’t stop. Why can’t I find some app settings button?!? All I want to do is make the sound stop or quieter. The sensory overload kept me from mentally processing what the app was doing or tried to do; until I read another review. Pay $2 to get a 25 minute advertisement to buy packs of cards; and per other reviews if you buy “all” packs, you don’t get all packs. WB got very greedy with this one, apparently digital gaming is killing their business for them to stoop to tactics like this. I used the report a problem to request a refund as the app didn’t work as I expected it to. I would never, no not ever, have expected to be subjected to a 25 minute ad, with no way to bypass it, in any game, much less one I just paid to download. This game re-taught me to read critical reviews; especially for pay to download apps.
Charged my family twice for the same decks
by $20 SCAMMED TRASH GAME on 2021/12/23 01:52
My dad bought the packs and I wanted them on my phone, but the game charged again for the same packs. Restoring doesn’t work, family sharing should transition packs. Scammed for $40 dollars. Want a refund
Rip off!!!
by It's ok.com on 2021/12/22 06:45
Don’t bother buying, app doesn’t work on my iPad. I don’t recommend it because every time I go to open it shuts off in a few seconds. I have never even been able to play the game and I’ve had it downloaded for a few months hoping they would work out the kinks. Disappointed because I’ve played it before with friends and wanted to play with my kids.
Support Family Sharing
by MC Hampster on 2021/12/20 19:00
Spent $20 on the big pack only to realize Family Sharing isn’t supported. That’s ridiculous.
WARNING FAMILY SHARING NOT SUPPORTED
by jrv116psu on 2021/12/19 15:43
I bought the full pack for big $$ thinking my kids could play with each other too.. not so.. this developer has not enabled in app sharing which is now a feature for App Store apps.. Shame that they don’t enable this as it seems like a legitimate feature that would allow my kids to play without me … very frustrating and from reading the dev info it looks like it’s pretty easy to implement.
Good

Not all decks included….
by Macnguyem on 2021/12/17 05:18
Paid $1.99 and only got 8 decks.
False Advertisement
by Aaron Boggs on 2021/12/16 17:58
It’s a great game but the sales ads our misleading. Currently there is a special to get “our entire collection”. However after paying the high $$ you find that their entire collection doesn’t really include all the decks and you must pay more money to get the rest. This isn’t the first time the app hasn’t delivered products it has promised. While we love the game itself; the game rips you off with the false advertising.

Lazy Updates
by mister resetti on 2021/12/14 21:43
The pop culture pack update has barely any cards. I played two rounds and we already had repeats. I tried to play a third and it was a combination of all of the ones in the first and second round. As a test, I ran through all the cards and they repeated the whole list after maybe <20 cards? Really disappointing when the Pop Culture pack is the most important. Please add more cards.
Frozen
by lulabird on 2021/12/14 00:03
Does not actually work. Stays frozen on “Place On Forehead” screen
In app purchases are NOT shareable
by stefanopolis123 on 2021/12/12 04:23
It’s pretty greedy and absurd to not allow sharing of in app purchase on family accounts
App not working
by Socalou on 2021/12/12 03:29
I was able to download and start the app. However, once I picked my deck, the game freezes with the “place on forehead” screen. There is no countdown, and I have been able to play the game. Even after deleting and reinstalling. I am using an iPhone 13 pro. Please update your code!
Too Much Going On
by Emunneeee on 2021/12/11 18:21
Refund Please. Way too much going on and not easy to navigate with all the pop ups. Also there’s not a kid section. How do I get a refund. Not even worth $2.
Remove decks
by Ragnarian^5 on 2021/12/10 23:08
App will not let you remove inappropriate decks. Please fix.
Don’t bother
by Brennalm on 2021/12/08 01:07
The user interface is garbage. Super hard to navigate unless you’re looking to pay extra money, even though I already paid! I wish I could get a refund!
Love this!

Should be reported and want refund. All adds and can’t play. Apple should be ashamed for selling and does Ellen D know that she is ripping people off!
Why did I pay?
by E Cus on 2021/11/30 02:51
We used to be able to customize card decks for studying and other fun learning opportunities. Am I missing something? The update doesnt show that capability and seems to be a money grub to buy more decks ugh

Misleading
by cking023 on 2021/10/23 04:47
I’m sure this game is fun but the description is VERY misleading!!!!!! Description states it includes 40+ decks which is not true. There are only 8 included decks upon initial purchase. Then it requires additional purchase for any other decks. There are 50+ decks to purchase additionally. I feel scammed based on the description.
Paid $3 and ran out of pop culture cards right away

It doesn’t work…was looking forward to playing this game with the students. However, once you click on the game. It tells you to place on forehead but it freezes after that. Disappointed
No features/customization. Constant annoying pop-ups!
by John Ruml on 2021/10/18 00:16
The expectation when you buy a paid app is that you're *not* going to be inundated with a million little pop ups expecting you accidentally click/spend more money. the core gameplay is fun and I don't mind that they add different pop culture references behind paid additional "decks", but the 60 second rounds are far too short and there's no way to lengthen them. Worse yet, between every 60 second round is an ad that takes up most of the screen estate trying to sucker you into buying paid features. Very sorry state for the game to be in when you spend more time trying to click through the menus than actually playing the game. Don't recommend it all.
Really Fun!
by Tots_liv on 2021/10/13 14:04
We played this game while we were waiting in lines at Disney. It was really fun and it made time pass by quickly. I definitely recommend this game when you have nothing to do and have a group of friends with you!

by Trigal3477 on 2021/09/26 14:49
I used to play this game all the time with my family, and had bought a ton of decks for it. Early this year, it started crashing every time I opened the app, it wouldn’t even get to the deck choice. I got a new iPhone- I went from a 7 to a 12 mini, thinking that might help. But no luck. The app continues to crash and I cannot get to the game. My phone is up to date with the latest iOS. Would love to be able to use the app again and change this to a 5-star rating! Please help!
BEST APP EVER

Good for one night
by guywhoistiredofwaiting on 2021/08/29 20:07
Is it worth a dollar? Not if you plan to play it on more than one occasion. Played most of the default decks in one night and now if I play the game it’s entirely boring. This game is a dollars worth of repetitive charades. You are much better off playing charades the old fashioned way. Not to mention how ridiculously priced it is to buy a new deck. You could easily look up charades prompts and fill a hat and have endless free fun rather than play this and have to pay to have fun for and hour or so one time.
Family Fun time
by N@turalbeauty06 on 2021/08/29 19:56

I recently switched from Android to iPhone and I am trying to access the decks that I previously purchased. When I click restore purchases, it “loads” then goes to the top of the screen but never shows my previous purchases. None of the customer service emails that are listed on the site work and there is no customer service number! What a ripoff!

by BrittShinn on 2021/08/08 21:15
I’ve had heads up for a while and I love it. However, some of the original decks aren’t working. For example, when I try to use superstars or blockbuster movies the app crashes.

Best way to spend $1.00 ever!
by NowhereSomehow on 2020/03/23 01:24
Me and my family are constantly bored and can never find a game we all agree on. Whenever we introduced something into the house one person always says something negative about it and we end up abandoning it. Yesterday when I purchased this game, I had to entice the whole family to even get together to play this game. When I finally succeed in doing so we tried out the accent card list and we immediately all agreed this was the best game ever! This game really brought our family together after 3 years of complete utter boredom! Thank you! I really recommend getting the game, it’s not only good for family but it’s also a great game to play with freinds!
Customer Service, or lack there of and deck problems
by I love joeys! on 2019/06/22 00:23
I used to love this game. It was a weekly game night activity with my family. However, one day, the app would not even open before it crashed. So, as many people do when troubleshooting, I deleted and again downloaded the app. When downloading, it gave me the ‘family download’ message, and being the only option, I of course used it. When I opened the new app, I could not restore purchases because I “do not own the app.” I have tried everything I could, and having done so, I did what the app said and contacted them about the error. I have emailed probably around six times with no response in about a month. I have purchased 9 decks, some on one account and some from the phone I am trying to get them back on. I understand that they don’t family share, which is kind of dumb but not the issue. The issue is I spent money on decks to get on my phone. I cannot get them back and the “customer service” won’t even respond. I just want my decks back. I spent money on them and I am VERY disappointed in the app service department because they are NOT doing their job. IF YOU HAVE FAMILY SHARING DO NOT BUY DECKS OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR MONEY
Disappearing decks and the purple question mark?
by The Deck Collector on 2019/03/28 03:13
I LOVE LOVE LOOOVE this app! I have bought all the extra decks they have offered and tried to get all the free ones when they are offering them. Unfortunately this last time when I was trying to get the free Summertime by Halo Top deck it was not working and then it disappeared :( Also there is a deck that showed up one day that is purple with a yellow question mark. When I select that deck it freezes my app to where I have to completely quit out of the app and reload it to make it work again. I’m just wondering if anyone else is dealing with the same issue? I LOVE this game with all my heart and my goal is to own all of the decks! The only reason why I did not give this app 5 stars is because of the disappearing decks. It makes me very sad when I miss out on a deck. 😭 Other then that, I highly recommend this app because I doubt the missing decks doesn’t bother anyone else besides myself.
It’s ok... 😐😕
by JustEnderSlayin on 2021/02/24 19:50
This game costs a dollar sure but is it really worth it? The answer is NO. Ok I’ll admit it’s kind of fun but this game constantly crashes. Also coming back to how the game costs one dollar, the facts are that it only gives a few decks I’ve seen more on ripoff versions for FREE. And if you want more decks you’ve got to pay 20 bucks in 15 minutes or else it costs a whopping 100$!! But anyways if you’re looking to buy a fun family game or a game that you can play with friends, keep searching. Oh yeah one more thing. If your a developer and you’ve took the time time read this far thank you, and also about the constant crashing, this happens when I have my WiFi on and when I have my data on my phone on. Just saying, in case you want to fix this issue. (And I’ll change the rating to 5 star if that happens ;) .)
Don’t waist time...GET THIS APP NOW 😃😃😃😃
by Abcdfam on 2021/01/29 18:15
Ok so every Thursday me and my family (just my mom and brothers and sister) I said we should play sherades but then I thought of heads up! We played for 30 minutes we didn’t have a lot of time left, and we laughed SO HARD! We laughed so hard we stared laughing crying!! 😂😂 and one of them my brother said “poo?” XD I could not stop laughing!! , one thing that we look at is the packs , they cost money but my mom bought all of them cause she wanted us to have fun, if you don’t wanna waist your money, just use the top ones. Over all this is our family night game so I recommen this app so get it free!!!
Need to fix some bugs.
by Emily and Jessica on 2020/11/15 12:00
Well before I get into the bugs I just want to say this game isn’t expensive to waste on my whole family likes it. Me and my sister were bored in quarantine and we want to play a game but all of my board/card games are boring, so I said “ do you want to play heads up?” She insists. I purchased it anyways. We kept playing it and really love it. About the bugs, are very annoying. First of all, when I open a deck and press play instead of saying “ Put on your fore head” but it just flip over, Second of all the screen sometimes went blue and it is stuck there, Third of all after a deck the camera froze. All of the bugs can be only fix if I restart my phone 2 or 3 times. It is really annoying, I was hoping if you could fix it give me some advice.
Bait and switch
by SevonDuttles on 2020/11/14 05:16
I’ve played this game on a few other friends phones and absolutely love it, so I decided it was time that I give it a download. After I paid the $.99, I was prompted that they were offering a sale on some of their other packs to play for $20. It was over a $100 value for just 20 bucks so I thought I was snagging a great deal! After I purchased the limited time offer, I was promptly notified that I had been charged $45 dollars instead of the 20 that I thought I was spending. After fuming about that for a few minutes, I still decided to play a few rounds so I booted up the game and selected a category only to get stuck on the “place on forehead” screen. I don’t know if either of these instances were possible bugs or glitches, but I’m very very displeased with how my experience has been thus far with Heads Up.
LOVE THE CRAP OUT OF IT but I have one suggestion!
by MaryJaneMarie on 2018/02/15 01:55
I’ll start by saying my spouse and I LIVE (went to type love, autocorrected to live, that also works, I’m going with it) this game, and we were super stoked to have the 90 second time limit! My suggestion would be to have the option to have a longer time limit...I’m absolutely certain that a chunk of your users smoke marijuana (legally, of course.....😑), and to be honest, the longer time limit is pretty darn necessary. I (I mean they...) would probably pay for it in an in app purchase, $1.99 sounds pretty good, just sayin’
Great game, but the more you spend, the less it works
by Floof Toob on 2020/09/23 05:57
I love this game and have bought all the decks. I greatly regret buying them, though. The more you buy, the less the game works. I can’t really even access most of the decks I’ve purchased because the game freezes or crashes as I attempt to scroll down. Also, every time you buy deck packages, it comes with a lot of build-your-own decks. That’s fine, but the problem is you have to scroll through dozens and dozens of blank decks to get to the decks you’ve paid for. There is no way to rearrange, prioritize, or delete decks. There is also no way to contact support to tell them of these issues or ask for a refund, since the game doesn’t work.
No features/customization. Constant annoying pop-ups!
by John Ruml on 2021/10/18 00:16
The expectation when you buy a paid app is that you're *not* going to be inundated with a million little pop ups expecting you accidentally click/spend more money. the core gameplay is fun and I don't mind that they add different pop culture references behind paid additional "decks", but the 60 second rounds are far too short and there's no way to lengthen them. Worse yet, between every 60 second round is an ad that takes up most of the screen estate trying to sucker you into buying paid features. Very sorry state for the game to be in when you spend more time trying to click through the menus than actually playing the game. Don't recommend it all.
Great game, but......
by J. Romano on 2017/12/06 05:07
After playing it for two nights straight with the same people, we’ve been through all the free decks and can easily give clues to achieve correct guesses. Gets boring quickly. Now of course, there are lots of other decks that can be purchased, but for .99¢ each and with no option to just purchase all decks for a “discounted” rate, I don’t think we’ll be playing for much longer unless something changes. Don’t get me wrong, we had lots of fun the first night, but come on. Had to purchase the app and now I’m supposed to purchase each add-on as well. Sorry Ellen. Im not that rich. Wanna help us out?
Lots of laugh
by Lizzy-21 on 2017/10/02 00:23
I love this game and its very addictive.i am a social worker in the foster care field and to alleviate our day my colleagues and I spend our lunch time playing this game. This definitely gives us a good laugh after stressful events. My only issue with app is that on my iPad once "it's times up" it automatically kicks me off the game which is very annoying. I have been using my iPhone but the iPad is better for the amount of people that are playing. Another issue the purchases don't sync the same in me iPad or iPhone don't know why. I hope this issue can be fixed. Other than that its an amazing game.
Great Game—Bothersome Issues with Gameplay
by 5monkeez on 2021/02/09 18:58
Our family plays this game every night after dinner. We love it. It’s the only game I’ve ever paid for extras. But there are fixes needed for for some of the decks. For example, the contrast for the Harry Potter cards is too soft—for some weird reason the cards don’t used the rich blue background and white text. This needs to be fixed ASAP. Also in the football deck, a card erroneously lists the “Stanford Cardinals.” Its singular: “Cardinal.” When this card comes up, we suddenly realize that the creator of the deck doesn’t know college football.
App Crashes before it Opens
by Mbera on 2020/06/02 05:54
Let me start by saying, I love playing this app so much! That said, I have been unable to open this app since the update. This has happened in the past, but I have been able to troubleshoot it by restarting my device or making sure my IOS was up to date. This time is different. When I click on the game app, I get the welcome screen for about a half second before it crashes. I’m afraid to delete and redone load the app because I have purchased about 15 decks over the last 4 years. I’m getting no responses from the email support and I’m very frustrated. I love this game. It’s is especially great to play while social distancing. Now, I have to rate it 1 star because I can’t even play it. Total bummer.
Lots of fun, but...
by SerenaG519 on 2020/11/22 14:17
This game is perfect for family fun, coworker team building and all around holiday ice breakers. People of all ages can enjoy. I’ve essentially played so much, I’ve exhausted the decks and am frequently getting repeats. When I went to purchase more decks, the button keeps loading a price and never lets me buy. We were going to buy 10-20 (to even 40!!) more decks and couldn’t get it to load despite app, phone, data/wifi restarts. Oh well, still love this game!
Really fun
by Poppy Dentri on 2020/03/26 21:46
This game is really a lot of fun and it’s easy for families to play anywhere at anytime as long as you have your phone,table,laptop or whatever your may be playing on. I saw a lot of people saying that it’s a rip off or it’s not fun and boring, but my family gets bored of games quickly, but we have been playing “Heads Up” for over 3 months now and we’re not bored! I do have one suggestion for you, if maybe you could make some more topics like celebrities and popular shoes\clothing brands. Thank you guys so much for making such a fun game!
New update.
by Ponder14 on 2020/05/29 12:49
Since the new update the game is freezing at the times up screen. I have tried restarting my phone and restarting the app multiple times. I have enjoyed this game for years now and hope this can be fixed. Just had another update and the same issues freezing at the times up screen. Please make sure that stops happening after updates. And yet again the app has issues after an update. This time the app completely crashes when trying to open it. Very disappointing.
Can’t share decks?!?
by Ken7795 on 2019/12/24 17:08
I purchased this app for my son in order for him to play with his friends as well as our family when waiting in various lines. It is rather annoying to have to buy additional decks, but I was shocked when I found out that the decks cannot be accessed by my own family members on their respective phones. I had downloaded the Harry Potter, Marvel bundle and Star Wars decks onto my phone with the reasonable expectation that my wife, son and daughter would be able to use them as well. It is understandable that Ellen DeGeneres would want to make money, but it is terribly petty and unbecoming to be this greedy. As I stated above, it is reasonable to charge money for specialty decks, but unscrupulous to not be transparent wherein these decks cannot be shared whilst the actual app can be shared.
Decks I paid for are gone & customer service app support won’t help
by Freeapplover2 on 2019/09/03 15:07
I’ve purchased many MANY decks over the years. I’ve tried downloading/redownloading & “Restoring My Deck Purchases” countless times on the App but nearly all my purchased decks are gone. They dissappeared, were wiped clean. The only option is to keep re-buying everything I’ve already paid for over & over to get it to stick. I’ve tried emailing Head’s Up App support numerous times w/ no response. They can continue to add new seasonal decks & do updates but they don’t have the decency to reply to paying customers who’ve helped contribute to this game’s profittable success. Can someone from support please kindly contact me!? I just want the game decks I paid for back (I have my iTunes receipt emails as proof!). Thank you.
Disappointed
by Satisfied robloxian on 2020/04/26 18:15
Ok say my Moms friends birthday was coming up so we had a party we were thinking fun games to play so my mom got the app and this is where it all started going down hill so we discussed to get the karaoke pack it was 1.99 so my mom said what the heck sure she bought and it was all songs that nobody knew so then we saw an Avengers one so we were like ohh okay so my mom but it for 3.99 and some of the questions was from D.C sand some of them didn’t even make sense so I wrote review to just tell y’all don’t buy and of the packs unless you like not common songs. P.s the game branded is amazing on the app and it’s free.
Great game but you need to fix this
by Coolcatgothacked on 2018/11/18 01:25
I just recently bought the game and personally I think it is amazing. I bought a few of the packs and one of them was the write your own deck. It was working well but when we started to play after we got the word it wouldn’t go to the next card it was stuck on that card and we couldn’t get it to go to the next. That needs to be fixed whenever you can or we just do t know how to play heheh. Other than that amazing game I’d recommend this to everyone I know but pls fixed this asap or I would like a refund
So much fun, only one complaint
by thisnicknamemakesnosense on 2018/09/28 13:36
This game is soooo much fun and it’s great for playing with friends, there is only one drawback to the costume decks (which are ¢99 each), there is no way to reset them! I have bought 3 costume decks already and created about 600+ cards on each but they’ve gotten boring since they’re quite old, and the only way to reset them is to swipe left on each card which would take forever. I just hope they add a costume deck reset button because it would be very useful and would compensate better the ¢99 we pay for each.
Paid to get advertisements
by UnBlock MeBrain on 2021/12/23 10:17
LOUD! My phone is on silent, volume turned all the way down. I purchase the app, we had been having fun with a free knock-off so surely the real thing will be a blast right? App is downloaded. And I open it up. BLARING music tgat won’t stop. Why can’t I find some app settings button?!? All I want to do is make the sound stop or quieter. The sensory overload kept me from mentally processing what the app was doing or tried to do; until I read another review. Pay $2 to get a 25 minute advertisement to buy packs of cards; and per other reviews if you buy “all” packs, you don’t get all packs. WB got very greedy with this one, apparently digital gaming is killing their business for them to stoop to tactics like this. I used the report a problem to request a refund as the app didn’t work as I expected it to. I would never, no not ever, have expected to be subjected to a 25 minute ad, with no way to bypass it, in any game, much less one I just paid to download. This game re-taught me to read critical reviews; especially for pay to download apps.
Fun! But...
by Sue Dunnym on 2017/08/19 23:38
I've had this app on my phone for 2 years now and have had lots of fun playing it w/family & friends. I've used it while waiting in line for concerts and it definitely makes the time fly in a very enjoyable way. The only problem I'm now experiencing is the inability to make my own cards. I've enjoyed that feature a lot and have written to the developers for help, but I have yet to hear from them. I will update this review when/if this problem is taken care of.
Increase the game time
by Kiev girl on 2019/05/17 19:58
All is great in this game except the 1 minute limit on the game. I wish it was something you can alter, as in one minute you get only few answers. Especially if you take a deck where you have to act it out without words. That takes longer and the game is over after just a few questions. Also the one we play with kids. Same thing. They need more time to think about it and get really upset that it’s over so soon. It discourages then and they don’t feel like playing again cuz they feel like failures.
Heads up
by Maddie or Maddy on 2018/05/13 11:23
I like this game because it is where if it is game night or something like that it is where you and your family can play it is like one person has the phone on there four head and then the other people have to acted it out then with the person who has the phone and if they did not get it right then it is on to the nexts persons turn also if you get one right you would put your face down then put it back up.
Lack of privacy
by concrned mom 119123 on 2020/09/01 05:53
Bought this for my kids because all their friends have it. I noticed at the end of the round, that it was displaying a live video taken from the selfie camera on the front of my phone. There was no option to turn it off within the game. Actually I couldn't find options at all in the game. I went to my phone settings and found camera access was enabled. I never got a pop up requesting permission. Lots of other pop ups trying to sell additional decks. And the game freezes up whenever you scroll. Overall I'm very disappointed. I don't expect glitch issues from a paid app. And I won't tolerate privacy issues.
Endless fun from this app
by Cedes360 on 2020/05/31 06:11
Idk, it’s fun to pass the time. When we’re bored me and my friends play this for literal hours. Some of the decks are a little hard but it’s fun when we actually know something in the category. Endless inside jokes from playing this game. One of my fave apps. It’s always annoying when there’s in app purchases but some of the decks are so fun I don’t mind paying the like two dollars for them.
Great but....
by Elite_Inferno on 2018/09/04 20:11
Ok there is just a few things to adjust for one I’m a kid so I can only pretty much play the animal one 🤷‍♂️ and I’m not buying the kid one because that one is just meh. So maybe add another version and also i would like to be able to set the amount of time and adjust some things but overall if you don’t have anything to do and you want to kill time with friends then buy this. It still is great even without my recommendations because I play this when waiting for lines in six flags and it is just perfect.
What happened ?
by whatarethis on 2017/10/10 08:23
I first downloaded this game 6 months ago, and my boyfriend and I loved it. I wound up deleting it because we stopped using it as often, and just recently brought it back. I had purchased several decks and now they won't re download. Also, the constant ads before each round are ridiculous. Having to sit through a 30 second ad every time I play a round led me to just deleting the app again. Also, since it won't let me re download my decks, we've just been playing the free rounds, and more than a couple times I've sat through the ad, and then the app dies. When I bring it back, it says I already used my free round. Overall, very unhappy with how it's changed
I L O V E THIS GAME!!!
by maya-cool girl on 2018/05/28 02:23
This is a very great game and when I played it with my friends and family, we were all cracking UP!!! This game is so super and since we all love it, we play it EVERY dang DAY!!! And on the every dang day, we play it till my phone dies😀😀😀. And also when I wanna do another deck, you have to pay. I’m not getting mad or frustrated, it’s just I wanna play the decks that you need to buy that you won’t get to play. thank you for listening inventor of this app. Ps:please reply when you get my point. Thank you 😊
Allen is the best
by 0blah0 on 2017/12/02 20:05
I love your game it is fantastic my husband even plays and is silly which is really hard for him. He also has no knowledge of anything current which makes it all the more fun. When we first got married he didn’t know who Taylor Swift was. I not much better to be honest. But you bring happiness and fun to our home Thanks so much Ellen for being you. I couldn’t help myself I thought the name thing was hilarious. Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Fun, but their sales are misleading
by MercyMerciful on 2021/04/25 23:26
This is a fun game, but be sure to read the fine print and double check your purchases. I was just charged $10 for a ‘free’ Oscars deck that I got a toast notification about being free for today only and I used the toast notification to find it. Overpriced for a single deck in the first place, let alone the misrepresentation of saying it’s free when it wasn’t. There’s no way to contact the developer in the app, so if they don’t see this and correct the charge I will have to contact my bank to request a chargeback
Best quarantine game
by Reccomendef on 2020/06/04 10:03
This game is so much fun me and my family play every day. I love to play this game but it doesn’t work on my mom’s phone. I recommend this game to people who have a lot of free time on their hands. I recommend this game! I love the category, just kidding it’s so fun and age appropriate if you’re a parent reading this review. The Block buster movie category is very very much to hard for me. Please download this game and stay safe! 😀
Restoring Purchases is not Working
by SSStoopid on 2017/10/07 07:58
Deer Ellen, My name is Gage. I’m 11 years old and a member of family sharing with my mom and my dad. My dad downloaded BYOD (build your own deck) so I could download it thru family sharing on my own device. Ellen. No matter how hard I try. I am unable to download it to my device. My dad has even tried to buy it again but that didn’t work either. Ellen. I love how you play heads up! And I will be happy to give five stars when I can download or buy BYOD. From Gage .L. Simpson. P.S I challenge you to a game of heads up! ❤️💜
Not for the family
by Kathrynelise.art on 2020/02/09 21:35
I like this game but the biggest problem I have with it is just how hard it is to play with people who aren't just millennials or super on top of current entertainment and stuff. So few decks can be played by a wide spread of generations. Ive played with teenagers and they don't get most of the references. And Ive played with my parents and they don't get all the other references. Its too “pop culture-ey”.... I wish there were more decks that could be topics everyone might know... like more educational decks or something like that.
Getting an error message
by xsuix on 2017/12/25 00:37
I bought this app awhile ago and didn’t have any problems with it. I just downloaded it again (had removed it off my old phone awhile back) and for some reason, keep getting an “SKERROR DOMAIN” message whenever I want to restore my purchases or try to download a free deck. I’ve tried deleting and re-downloading the app itself throughout the day but I still get the same message. It says to contact them if it keeps happening but the developer website link just goes to the ellentube page??? I didn’t see anything about how to connect with someone other than to appear on the show, etc. Does anyone know how to fix this?
Best Game Ever
by Gfgfgftttt on 2020/12/02 05:00
This game is easy to learn, fun to play with family and friends, and always gets a good laugh. I love how it records so you can always save the funny ones if you’d like. Honestly the best game ever! Definitely would recommend. The only thing is I wish they had some more free categories but honestly I use this app so much I don’t mind $ for some extra sets! The Just Kidding Cards are my favorite Section!
Love it can I say some thoughts
by Cara222111222 on 2020/11/19 23:15
Maybe people can make one and ther can be copitesen to see how good we are and if we win we can get it free and maybe it can have all different games but has to go with it like you pick a card and give clues and the computer or something like that and maby add something so you can play by your self can’t wait until you write back
Love this ❤️
by Callahan Fam on 2018/07/29 18:24
I just downloaded this app and I love it so much! My cousin was just visiting for 2 weeks and when we were bored we would just play this. It comes with a good amount of free decks and the ones that aren’t free are only 99 cents. I do have a suggestion for a new deck though. You could make one of the greatest showman. It would be so fun to try to act out and guess the scenes. So everyone that reads this... download this app!
Great fun!
by SOFTBALL🥳 on 2020/04/20 16:28
SUPER FUN AND ADDICTING GAME! My only concern is with the weekly changing mystery deck. I have had the same mystery deck for over a month know and don’t get me wrong I LOVE branded it is actually my favorite deck but I would love to try some new ones. Please let me know if I miss understood what the “mystery deck” does and I will be happy to give y’all 5 stars! If I was correct I hope you are able to fix it! Again love this game...I just want it to be the best, most functional, and fun it can be! Thanks!
Used to be a five star game
by Brandoncomandon on 2019/06/26 02:57
I played this game when it first came out, it was an awesome family game and we had a lot of fun playing it. After a while the limited amount of cards got boring and repetitive, sadly the content included in the price feels more like a free to play game not a game you actually have to buy. It’s extremely annoying to want to play but have to purchase everything separately. There are plenty of apps like this one that are almost exactly the same but include more content and allow you to unlock other packs without paying money, and those apps are free.
App runs great but support is horrible
by quentin2502 on 2020/01/11 13:11
My family and I play this game all the time together and never had an issue. That is until I upgraded my phone. It says that you can restore all of the packs you purchase in the app but that is not entirely true. You can only restore the individual ones you purchase. If you purchase one of their sale pack sets you will not restore those. I have emailed support numerous time and there has been 0 response. If you are going to buy things in this game make sure you buy each one individually so that you don’t have this problem.
App Keeps Shutting Down
by ericaokaay on 2018/05/27 20:56
I played this game when it first came out and it was a fun, and the new packs have definitely made it even better. I also love that you can play a free round of a pack you don’t own if you watch an ad, but every time the ad ends, the app shuts down, and the option for a free round is no longer available for that pack so I just have to buy the pack to know how it is. Hope this gets fixed and I somehow get my free rounds back because I never got to play them. For that I have to take off two stars
I love this game and it’s great for the entire family.
by MGallucci83 on 2018/02/04 21:10
We have such a great time playing. There is a deck for everyone including each of our favorite shows. We play at dinner, we play at Disneyland while in line, we play for family game night. It’s so much fun and we always look for new decks. And for just adults it’s fun to see us all try to guess, just add alcohol and the silliness quadruples. Get this app, you won’t regret it.
PLEASE FIX!
by StroJesd on 2020/04/23 03:15
Although the game is super fun and exciting, unfortunately almost every game gets stuck on the “Pass” screen when we pass and runs down our time from whatever time was left. For example if we had 40 seconds left the Pass screen stays put until the 40 seconds run off. Initially I thought it was a penalty for passing but then I realized this was almost every game were a question was passed. It truly interrupts the momentum and any possible achievements.
Love the app! Klondike not so much :(
by Probie0608 on 2021/06/13 16:20
We love playing this game! I’m up to 11 decks since I got the free Shake It Up deck yesterday. I followed the instructions 3 different times yesterday for getting a Klondike coupon and an Oops! error message appears on the Klondike website. I can call them Monday but want you to know that while I very much appreciate the free deck this is a frustrating experience with Klondike.
Love the game, lost a deck
by B4Starfire on 2019/09/04 00:29
Love the game. Tons of free content if you pay attention. Would leave as five stars but I have to remove half a star since my Transformers Deck was removed (and i guess i have to round up since there are no half stars). Last time I was in the game, my Bumblebee deck “Dynamic Duos” was glitched and wouldn’t open. It was off to the side at the bottom of my archive and I couldn’t move it. Now it is missing. Was this deck removed from everyone that had it in their collection?
Ughhh
by 🦍🐘🦓 on 2019/06/28 22:28
A nice game but what annoys me is that you have to pay for like all of the categories! You already have to pay a dollar for the game do they really think that I am going to spend another ten dollars to get what seven more categories?!? It is really frustrating because when you first get the game you only get nine sets to choose from and the only way to get more is to pay. It is a good game and enjoy playing in but am constantly annoyed with the fact that I will only be able to play certain ones
