Ratings and Reviews
I have played this app quite a bit, it is a blast. Similar to catchphrase in hot potato mode, but with cool new features that really enhance the game play. Word lists are larger. You can even see how long each word took at the end of every round, and google words you aren't familiar with. It also adds 5 seconds on to game play if someone clears a word with less than five seconds left, so you never have to fight about someone getting something right at the buzzer. You can also skip words if you get stuck, and pause the game as necessary which comes in handy.
The other game modes are great also, very different than what you can do with catchphrase. Time trial allows you to play with just two people against the clock, which is perfect when you don't have a big crowd, and you can keep track of your best times to trash talk friends.
Defintely a great game and awesome coversation starter. Get some!
Good but could use more options.
I love Catchphrase so this game automatically appeals to me, but this could use some gameplay options such as setting up more than 2 teams and the ability to change options to do things like making skipped words take away a point. I'd love to see these in an update, and I'd totally give the update a 5 star if these were added. Side note: Make the skip button easier to access!
It's a BLAST!!!
We just played this for a couple of hours with our 3 teenage kids. We had a great time, and ended up laughing so hard! Most of the words and phrases were things we knew. We only had to pass on a couple of things. To pass, you hit pause. The pass button is there.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
