Customer Reviews

Addicted to this game!!! It's great!

I start off every morning by getting my cup of coffee and opening up my "Red Herring" app to play a game or two ... and then I'm ready to face the day. You'll love this game. It's challenging to solve and at times, frustrating when you are unable to discern the category for the 4 words. I love it!


A fun brain straining game that keeps you coming back for more!


I love the game because it's fun and challenges me in a different way.
