Horrible experience  izzzzzzzzzzzzb  1 star

App keeps getting stuck on pass and correct screens, but timer keeps going. App freezes and stops working. Can’t get through a single round without this happening. Not worth the money.

Excellent Family Game  Jennifer_05!  5 star

Must have for Game Night!


Buy and then buy in the app?  Gurlqb  3 star

Had to buy the app for .99 and now I have to buy the games inside? Don’t understand why she said it was free on her show. But it is fun to play. But it’s definitely not free.


Love it but...  Bellmont  5 star

Is there an option that shows pictures? Like of basic things for the little kids that can’t read?

You guys literally stole from me I bought a game in there and now I don’t have it


Broken game  neneburd  1 star

No stars- unable to play. I get the first card and cannot change to the next card by tipping screen up or down. Just freezes up and then the time runs out. I have uninstalled the game and reinstalled. I have restarted my iPhone. And I’ve also checked my screen lock orientation. Seems like a bug and I can’t find any help, settings or tech support in the app itself. I’d love a fix or my money back. Thank you.


It won’t go past the opening screen  -deon  1 star

DISAPPOINTED  App Store Reviewer18  2 star

Heads Up, I love your game that I’ve purchased multiple decks. When I got a new iPhone I contacted your support team through email asking how I could transfer these purchased decks to my new device (because ‘restore purchases’ wasn’t working even though both devices are logged into the same Apple ID and both apps are connected to iCloud). I’ve received no response in almost 2 months, even after sending a couple more emails and sending a message to your Facebook page. I love the game but it’s such a waste of money if I can’t restore my decks. The fact that I haven’t received help from the support team after I’ve tried to contact you multiple times has been a massive let down!

Why 'Heads up’ is a good game  ~Pat~🤓  5 star

My crazy family and I L-O-V-E this game. It is so fun that we can’t stop playing. During Chinese Lunar New Year all of us were drunk and could not stop playing and fell asleep on the couch!!!😂 Even the kids came down from their rooms to see what the adults were doing and ended up joining in. We play this EVERYWHERE. My cousin who was ‘acting calm’ suddenly got up , bent over and started smacking his bottom. All of us stoped and looked at him. The person guessing thought that it was wiping your bottom instead of HORSE RIDING . This was the most memorable moment I’ve ever had. If you consider purchasing this app , I’m warning you that everyone will love ❤️ this game as much as I do


New update has ruined my game night!  CarolineCloe  1 star

WASTE  123mikeyd  1 star

Bought the Adult pack which contained 4 versions. Cards repeated in all version and within only 10 minutes of playing we got multiple cards repeated. WHAT. A. WASTE. Wish I could get my money back already. Would give it 0 stars if I could. SAVE YOUR MONEY

Disappointing  Rob B11  1 star

App is basically a paywall to another paywall. All of the decks need to be paid for, free little content in the base app.

Leaf Larkin

Glitching  Leaf Larkin  4 star

So I’ve had this app for years and this is the first time I’m having issues with it. It keeps glitching, crashing, and when it finally loads, I’m unable to select and scroll through the decks. I restored my iPad and yet this is the only app that I’m having trouble with. I wish i was able to send you a bug/crash report. And the new deck “Best of 2018” has only one card. Please fix and update soon.


Really fun!!  Chantdoc  5 star

We played this on Christmas Eve with 5 people and it was really fun!!

Nobody wants to play  The special and crasy family  4 star

It seems like it’s a bad game because none of my family members want to play heads up with me.you should add more interesting things so the family members can play with you.my mom said when she wakes up from her nap she would play with me and my auntie said it but right now their just talking.they told a story.if you read this thank you.


Crashes every time  Astrojet990  1 star

The current version doesn't work at all. It crashes before you can start a game. Same on 2 other devices.

Independent Girl

Thank you.  Independent Girl  5 star

I usually don’t have many games or activities to play with my family at dinners or events, so I when I downloaded this and had to opportunity to play it was a HIT! My family speaks English and Spanish... already a plus when it comes to multilingual games, we played all night long. Of course we started off with the raunchy topics (wish there was a total adult only section with a bit raunchier words) then ended with kids words and section. It has become a family game for the last 2 months now, even managed to get a bunch of friends to download it. Thank you. I have ideas for the adult only sections if you ever decide to go that route, but for now this game will be played many times over during our get togethers.


I want a refund  Pfkrfktoro  1 star

Fun game but orientation incorrect for AirPlay to AppleTv  Sile_G  3 star

Fun group game for adults & kids alike. It is completely maddening that it won't play nice for AirPlaying on an AppleTv (orientation won't right itself), otherwise my rating would be higher


Disappointing !  LouiseColeman  1 star

Bought this app after seeing it on the Ellen show with high hopes. Very few decks available with purchase and although other decks available an additional purchase is a required much to my disappointment! Much better free versions of this app available !!!
