So fun for all my family  izzy4shawn  5 star

It is a really great game for all the family and just fun to play with friends


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

It's a good quiz game that is fun for the whole family, but some more Australian-themed questions.

I L O V E THIS GAME!!!  maya-cool girl  5 star

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 😊


What the hell?!?!?  Twitch*CFL  1 star

Ok so I paid a dollar for this game and it gives me like 6 decks?!?!? What is this garbage?? I pay and you make me pay more for more decks. I WANT A REFUND THIS IS CRAP


Why aren’t decks free???  MEGA VIDS  4 star

The only thing that I have a problem with is that you have to buy extra decks. Besides that, it’s a really fun game.


Too many bugs!  gwarrick  1 star

We played a total of one free round. It would play an ad and when the ad would let me X out, it took me to my phone’s home screen. It would not let me play that round again. I deleted it about 6 minutes after I payed for it. BS.

Storage  peanut party  3 star

It's a fun game but I have do delete so many things to get a new deck. How much space do I need to buy a new deck? Since I have already bought that deck on a different device, the deck is free on my other devices but even if it's free I can't get it. Help: how much space do I need?


App Keeps Shutting Down  ericaokaay  3 star

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


Not working  alicea1999  1 star

Ever since the last update it hasn’t been working. The app won’t even open!! What’s going on?? Fix it please I really like this game!

May 24,2018 Version Freezes Up  Luckydog65  3 star

My ipad is only about 2 years old, but the Heads Up “Anniversary Update” released May 24, 2018 freezes up. Wont ever get past the initial load screen even after re-downloading it. The old version worked well and would have rated 5 stars. Good luck.


New update 👎🏼  Leila912  1 star

With the new update my app won’t load fix it. I love the app tho. The update gets one star but the app gets 5.


Worst app ever !!!  unicorngirls123  1 star

I went on to it and I chose my category went on to it and the countdown numbers where taking about 40 seconds to count down each number and it said we did not let us have time because it kept on freezing and by the time it came back from freezing it said time is up so it’s a REALLY BAD APP DONT BUY IT !!!!!!

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


Great app  DQuartz  5 star

I just downloaded this game and I’ve already wowed my friends at a party. Totally love it. I would have loved it better if we could make custom-made decks too ❤️
