Celebrity: Get a Clue
By Peter Gordon
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The classic party game Celebrity is now in app form, with every feature you can imagine!
More than 6,000 names are available, from Hank Aaron, Bud Abbott, and Paula Abdul to Zorro, Mark Zuckerberg, and Buckwheat Zydeco, and every name has a clue to help you out if you get stuck.
No other Celebrity game has anywhere near that many names and clues!
Players divide into two, three, or four teams and have to get their teammates to say the randomly selected names by giving them clues. Names are divided into two difficulty levels and 11 categories (American history, fine arts, literature, movies, mythology, pop music, popular culture, science, sports, television, and world history). You can choose what levels and categories to use in the game.
You can choose the time limit for the turn (30 to 120 seconds), what time penalty there is for skipping a name (or disallow skipping entirely), how many clues are allowed per turn (or disallow clues entirely).
There’s also an optional second round where all the names from the first round are repeated, but you’re limited to clues consisting of only one word and/or one gesture.
The free version has 110 names from Level 1, enough to play a few games. In-app purchases allow you to get all the Level 1 names (more than 2,000 names), all the Level 2 names (more than 4,000 names), or both. The name database and clues will be updated periodically, and can be updated for free within the app.
What's New in Version 1.2
- 6 new level 1 names
- 29 new Level 2 names
- updated clues for many existing names (for example, Pope Benedict XVI)
Celebrity will not stay launched
I downloaded Celebrity, read the rules and decided to uy the Level 1 pack of names. Apparently it downloaded, but now the app launches for perhaps :02, then goes back to my home screen. Right now, this is a useless app, and I do not see any way to contact the developer, Peter Gordon. “Report a problem” takes you to a screen with no links to Gordon. I’m stuck. Otherwise I might rate i higher, ut I can’ even start to play.
Great app for parties! When you don't want to make all the papers for the game. Missing the 3rd round option of the game. First the words, then one word, then optionally just an action.
