Missing Decks (1/5)
App steals money
I payed for multiple decks, got a new iPhone, and downloaded the app again. All my payed for decks where missing. - Sasha_xp
I’ve tried to get one of the party decks and it’s never registered that I purchased the game. It ended up charging me $20 but I still don’t have the deck. Rad. - mia and auri
#trash maybe not (1/5)
It a vewy bat gam so I wood recommend no downloading it - taconlord
Rip off (1/5)
You have to buy the game and then buy the decks. Why waste money paying for the game when you still need to pay to play the decks. Ridiculous - kuro1315
This app seems to have malware in it. When it’s installed I get malicious redirects in Safari. When I delete it, the redirects stop. - pjcjp
Make free (5/5)
Make all of them free - Mske Free
Mystery deck isn’t changing (1/5)
I heard about the new mystery deck where it chooses a random deck and it’s a new deck every week. I have checked every week but for the past 2 or 3 weeks, the mystery deck is still the F•R•I•E•N•D•S deck. I don’t even watch that show. Please change the mystery deck every week. It’s getting on my nerves to still see F•R•I•E•N•D•S as the mystery deck every day.
Update: It’s 3 April 2019 and the mystery is still F•R•I•E•N•D•S! I don’t understand why they are too lazy to change it. It may be glitch or something on my phone because I do have an old iPhone 6SE but that mystery deck needs to changed. I don’t watch F•R•I•E•N•D•S so don’t expect me to do that deck. - 🇬🇧BritishLolaTheGamer🇬🇧
Full of fun (5/5)
This app is great for family and friend fun, definitely won’t disappoint! - bootyinjections
5th Anniversary Update (3/5)
My family and I have loved playing Heads Up but I was a little annoyed to see that the app had bundled a lot of the games. So the games that were already downloaded were gone. Many of the games I had already purchased were now bundled and I had to purchase them again!
The developer should’ve allowed previous purchases to remain and also have provided bundled offers. Now I have purchased some titles twice but will not purchase more. This is a money grab! - Jsarris3
It’s free on Android you still have to pay for additional stuff that’s garbage apple is greedy - OhhQuelaChin
Disappearing decks and the purple question mark? (4/5)
I LOVE LOVE LOOOVE this app! I have bought all the extra decks they have offered and tried to get all the free ones when they are offering them. Unfortunately this last time when I was trying to get the free Summertime by Halo Top deck it was not working and then it disappeared :( Also there is a deck that showed up one day that is purple with a yellow question mark. When I select that deck it freezes my app to where I have to completely quit out of the app and reload it to make it work again. I’m just wondering if anyone else is dealing with the same issue? I LOVE this game with all my heart and my goal is to own all of the decks! The only reason why I did not give this app 5 stars is because of the disappearing decks. It makes me very sad when I miss out on a deck. 😭 Other then that, I highly recommend this app because I doubt the missing decks doesn’t bother anyone else besides myself. - The Deck Collector
Love it! (5/5)
This game is bomb! But it’s a workout😜 - FleurdePeach
Fun game for children and family - Lakeviewhs1993
Nope. I’m done. (1/5)
When you get below a certain amount. The game is rigged to keep you at that low amount until you buy more coins. It’s complete BS. - Icebox1983
I love the game BUT (4/5)
I love this game but the one thing I hide about it is that if you wanna play with the good cards, you have to buy them. I mean come on Elle, it’s enough that we have to buy the app make all the cards free - king of rhe kings
THIS IS THE WORST APP EVER (1/5)
BECUASE IF YOU BUY IT YOU HAVE TO BUY DECKS - DavyJanesplay16
WOULD give five stars but... (4/5)
You guys are missing the best show, The Office! That’s the only reason I’m giving four stars instead of five 😂 - Giovsnna
ZERO RESPONSE TO MULTIPLE EMAILS!!! (1/5)
Purchased this app on 12/24/18, it is not working on my iPhone. Emailed your “customer service”, tried deleting and reloading, nothing. I received one response from them telling me to contact Apple, they referred me BACK to you. Since then I have emailed about 10 times, no one responds. It has been almost THREE MONTHS!! Crap customer service, would expect better from an Ellen-sponsored app. - rexjames
Bought the game and playing with my friends in school and ill tell you i havent had so much fun as i did today we were laughing so hard we just wanted to keep playing it was so funny, Really entertained us.♥️♥️ - JustinAlexJuarezMason
Tom Felton (4/5)
It’s pretty nice I like it because it’s fun for family occasions but I only took off one star because there is no Harry Potter section so... - ac_jc
I’m been charge of this app. I don’t even use it nor have it download. Is there any email or support I can contact ? I don’t understand why I’m been charge if I don’t even have the game. Is there any way they don’t charge me ? - pxndx07
It won't open (1/5)
Every time I try to open it it takes a long time to load then just crashes
I would give it zero stars if I could
I've tried it every day it it doesn't work so plz fix it - sevyn the true master mind
Bring back 90 second rounds! (2/5)
This game was a lot more enjoyable when it had the option for 90 second rounds. Geico sponsored it in the past, if there is no longer an advertiser available, make it a paid upgrade! Especially with packs like finish the lyrics and hey me DJ, the extra time made it a lot more fun. - Dayhalp
Free on android but $0.99 on iOS?? You’re bustin my balls kyle... - khalico
Horrible experience (1/5)
App keeps getting stuck on pass and correct screens, but timer keeps going. App freezes and stops working. Can’t get through a single round without this happening. Not worth the money. - izzzzzzzzzzzzb
Ellen u own everything ugh (1/5)
Ugh - unicorn glitter girl
Excellent Family Game (5/5)
Must have for Game Night! - Jennifer_05!
Buy and then buy in the app? (5/5)
Had to buy the app for .99 and now I have to buy the games inside? Don’t understand why she said it was free on her show. But it is fun to play. But it’s definitely not free. - Gurlqb
Love it but... (5/5)
Is there an option that shows pictures? Like of basic things for the little kids that can’t read? - Bellmont
You guys literally stole from me I bought a game in there and now I don’t have it - this game sucksヽ(￣д￣;)ノ=3=3=3
Broken game (1/5)
No stars- unable to play. I get the first card and cannot change to the next card by tipping screen up or down. Just freezes up and then the time runs out. I have uninstalled the game and reinstalled. I have restarted my iPhone. And I’ve also checked my screen lock orientation. Seems like a bug and I can’t find any help, settings or tech support in the app itself. I’d love a fix or my money back. Thank you. - neneburd
It won’t go past the opening screen (1/5)
I just bought the app and it won’t move past the opening screen is it a glitch in the game or something because I restarted my phone and it is still doing it can you please fix it ASAP me and my fam trying to play! Thanks - -deon
This app is not good its hard too cortol and just wow.... - kill3r_dan123
Crash crash crash (1/5)
Need I say more??! - RaiderLin
What happened to the picture deck? (3/5)
I always loved playing with my younger nephews, but can’t seem to find the picture deck - not even as an option to purchase.... booooo - yeehaw_alex
So it was a free deck so obviously I’m going to get it and when I did it said “purchase complete” and took .99 out of my bank account this is ridiculous DONT GET THE FREE DECKS!!!!!! - GIVE ME BACK MY $0.99
BEST GAME EVER!!!!! (5/5)
This game is fun for every event and everyone! It is the best app I ever bought! Sooooooo much fun - AAAADDDDIIIIII123
This game should have more categories such music Genres, movie categories also - Dubb251
Misleading “Free Plays” (2/5)
There are a lot of decks that are supposed to be free to play if you watch an ad. Instead, after you watch the ad, you get kicked out of the app, and then you have to play to play the deck. - hdjjvdjbsyhvdu
Game freezes after watching ad to play free game (1/5)
Game freezes every time I want to play a paid game after watching app - tst237
Love but... (3/5)
We love to play this game and have many good laughs. I’m giving a 3 star because I recently got a new iPhone and when I downloaded the game on this phone, none of the decks I had previous purchased transfer over. I don’t want to spend all that money again. - DMT11
Suggestion for an Excellent Game (4/5)
This is a fantastic game! A pull-out-whenever-and-have-fun-with-family-and-friends kind of game. Everything looks and sounds very polished.
A couple suggestions that would make the experience even better for me:
- it would be great to be able to archive the sets I have not yet purchased and do not want to purchase in the future. Tired of seeing the pretty little liars deck for example that I know I will never purchase.
- would be great if the user could customize the UI a bit. For example it would be cool if I could turn the Christmas theme off, or turn it back on in late October if I’m in the Christmas mood. - Every other nickname is used
Charged extra for no reason (1/5)
I love the app but really confused how I’m being charged $10.54 for a 99cent deck. Not happy at all about this - saboobla
Too easy/not funny (1/5)
I don’t know if the decks changed or something, but my friends and I tried playing this again after not touching it for a year and it was so easy and boring that we stopped after five minutes. Good for little kids I guess? - alskfjjalajdbfhdji
MY APP WONT OPEN.. please fix! (1/5)
I bought this game and everytime I click on the app i see the front screen and then nothing! I want to play this but the app isn’t allowing me to. PLEASE FIX THIS - jennarol
Doesn’t work :( (1/5)
Worked really well and was a lot of fun to use! But it seems like after the most recent update it’s extremely glitchy and slow. Please fix, it’s one of my favorite apps! :( - hannah483828;
Didn’t work (1/5)
This app didn’t work on my iPhone 8. It kept crashing right before the game and then when I opened it again, the free round wouldn’t be available anymore. When it did start it wouldn’t be oriented horizontally but vertically on only half the screen so we couldn’t see part of the words. I would like my $.99 back. - Kristennkayes
I have a family that’s really fun sometimes we need to have a game to play this is the one! - Blurban
Not working!! (1/5)
I purchased Heads Up for .99 and the additional categories for 4.99. However, the app is not working and every time I try to open it, the screen turns black and I get kicked out of the app. I deleted it and installed it again, only to find that the additional categories were missing and had to be purchased a second time. I then reinstalled and repurchased the app and the additional categories, only for the same thing to happen again. I emailed the app developer a week ago but haven’t received a response. So frustrated and disappointed!! Wasted $11!!! - Muf418
