Heads Up!

February 12, 2016

Created by talk show host Ellen Degeneres, Heads Up! is a great pastime in which players can name celebrities, guess funny accents and imitate silly animals. The objective of the game is as simple as it gets: guess the word on the screen across your forehead.

One player holds up a device with a word on the screen as others give the player nonverbal hints to help guess the word. The player has 60 seconds to guess as many words as possible before time runs out. The video feature simultaneously records players as they try to give hints to the guesser, making the game even more amusing. Users can choose from a variety of “decks” to play with, including accents and impressions, superstars, blockbusters and movies, animals, icons and legends and the incredibly popular act it out.

To see how entertaining this addictive guessing game can be, check out a few clips from Ellen Degeneres’ show as she plays her own app with several celebrities including Tina Fey, Usher, Adam Levine and Oprah. From waiting in line with friends to needing a lunchtime source of pure entertainment, Heads Up! is an easy to play game for any and all teenagers who just need a little laugh.
