About Heads Up!

Heads Up! is a fun game to play with many kids, many friends, or whomever you’d like to play with in your family. 

Teacher Review

This is a game in which players have to guess words/names/titles, which may include celebrities, characters, movies, books and songs, which are described or acted by their friend/s. During this period, most of them are looking for games to play with friends remotely. 

Kids can learn to communicate ideas using alternative methods, forcing them to approach situations from multiple angles. This can be useful in the real world when what seems like the obvious answer is the wrong one and players are forced to view a problem from another point of view. Heads Up! brings the best of the classic game of charades into the electronic age, and it's a fun way for kids to practice thinking and communication skills. 

Many of the categories involve movies, celebrities or songs which younger children will not know.  Even the “Just for Kids” category contained “The Hunger Games” and “Avatar” which are both M rated movies. Parents should be aware that there is a category called “Adult Supervision” – it must be purchased as an extra deck for $0.99 and contains many words and concepts which are not suitable for children.
