HOW TO PLAY
Divide your group into two equal teams, team A and team B.
Start your game by selecting which category your group would like to play:
- The classic game "Celebrity" (the app comes with 50 names, free). "Ultimate Celebrity" has more than 500 names and syncs (new names) every time the game is played.
- Movie Buffs (Movies)
- Couch Potatoes (TV Shows)
- All About Music (Music)
- Broadway, Baby! (Broadway)
- Book Worms (Books & Reading)
- Sports Authority (Sports)
- Y2K (Pop culture clues from the 2000's)
- Gotta Love the 90's (Pop culture clues from the 90's)
Next, decide how many game clues your group wants to play with. As the game is played, if a clue isn’t guessed correctly, it is returned to the pile for another player during the same game. Clue's cannot be skipped, unless the skip button is enabled in "Other Stuff."
Team A goes first and selects one member to kick off the game. Press Start when everyone on team A is ready. He or she will then have 60 seconds (the timer default) to get their team to guess as many clues as possible. When a clue is guessed correctly the player must double-tap the screen or swipe (left or right) to move to the next clue. One point is assigned for each correctly guessed clue, and there is no limit to the number of points you can earn in each round. Each player’s turn ends when the timer stops.
When the timer stops, if additional clues have been given without a correct answer, the opposite team has one guess to try steal the point. If they guess incorrectly, do not reveal clue. The app will return it to the guessing pile.
The first member of team A will then pass the device on to the first member of team B. Players alternate from team to team, allowing each person in their group a chance to describe and play with their teammates.
A clue cannot be passed or skipped (unless enabled) even if the player is unsure of what they are describing or how to describe it. All players must do their best to impersonate, describe or otherwise provide clues for their team to successfully guess.
Points are calculated automatically and the game ends when all names in the pile have been guessed or the game is forfeited.
