Stuck on 5 year anniversary page
erinmm3109 on 8/18/2018
My app is stuck on 5 year anniversary page. I don’t want to re-download and lose my purchased games in the app.
Motion is not being recognized
Ericmckinney on 8/17/2018
It takes 10 seconds to select correct or pass. I don’t know what’s going on.
Warning, copycats!
Rainbow223455564466 on 8/14/2018
I’m going to take about two things. One is my review and the other is a little caution statement. First of all, my review. I love this app. It is great. I really do love it. Fun to play in the car, plane, or if I’m just bored. I LOVE ELLEN!! I’m not going to release my age, but that’s just say I’m under the age of twelve. I love Ellen so much. (Btw Ellen DeGeneres made this app) I play it with all my friends. But listen, there are copycats!!and they get a lot of attention! Support this app because WARNER BROS MADE IT!! And it’s great quality. Keep an eye out. Love ya, Rainbow223344 (etc)
You need 1 more star !

Soubraw on 8/11/2018
The best game to play with my family 😘💜💜💜💜
It’s fun! 🤩
zolesen on 8/11/2018
I think this is a fun game because you already are given so many things to do on it that you don’t have to buy anything on it! But that’s the problem, you have to buy more things if you do want to have more options! But, like I said earlier, you don’t need to because they’re already so many stuff to do!
GabbyWilson20 on 8/9/2018
I’m in love with this Game and I love Ellen

Why can’t I download free decks on iPhone X
confused 7389247$ on 8/3/2018
It states to slide to download or double click and neither works. Help
Really good
44&12 on 8/3/2018
It’s fun and pretty good, but I wish you didn’t need to pay for new decks. Other wise really fun and worth it- every week you get a new “mystery deck” and I think that was a good smart idea!
It’s sooooooooooooooooooooooooFUN !!!!!!!!
Flips75 on 7/30/2018
Love this ❤️
Callahan Fam on 7/29/2018
I just downloaded this app and I love it so much! My cousin was just visiting for 2 weeks and when we were bored we would just play this. It comes with a good amount of free decks and the ones that aren’t free are only 99 cents. I do have a suggestion for a new deck though. You could make one of the greatest showman. It would be so fun to try to act out and guess the scenes. So everyone that reads this... download this app!
Got a question...
Schoolsie on 7/28/2018
LOVE the game, we play often !! However, new decks appear but when I click to purchase them, they are not available and then they disappear.
Worst paid app ever
Whatisalias? on 7/26/2018
There are even a few things that I actually know out of all the cards, and the worst thing is, is that you have to pay for some cards which you don’t even know what words there are. Also please stop putting so much Ellen to make the app look good I don’t even know who she is except that it’s a girl with a TV program. You should just write a word in a paper instead of buying this trash.
brianikki on 7/26/2018
Best .99 cents i ever paid, so funny
Limited Categories
cocobuck22 on 7/24/2018
I hate that most of the categories (the good categories) cost 99¢ when I already paid for the app. Waste of money when there’s other apps that offer more categories for free
kathryn da don on 7/22/2018
It could be a little better but I love it
Not letting me play
zxsdgya on 7/22/2018
I just bought this but I make it all the way to the “put this on your forehead” but then I click and nothing happens.
Kinkeekurlee on 7/22/2018
Love it
Marisa13:)! on 7/21/2018
Okay this game is amazing so if your reading this I want to tell you if you haven’t tried act it out you have to try it’s amazing act it out is probably my favorite!!!! Any way I rated it already all five stars if I could put ten stars I would. Ohh and I have a section on my Ipad that I’m texting this on the section is some of my fav apps fav means favorite anyway and heads up is in that section!!! So I really mean this this app is my third fav app on my a IPad my first fav is Fortnite and second is YouTube!!! So that’s that thanks for reading BYE!!!!!😊😊😊
Good but
🍍Nina Pizzo🍍 on 7/20/2018
It is really fun and my family loves playing but not all of the decks are free the cost $0.99 per one and on top you pay $ 0.99 for the app
Family Game
Valiantmom8 on 7/17/2018
Definitely a game to play w the family, especially your kids of any age!! We love it! Thanks Ellen!! I get to play w my almost 10 kids.
Heads up
headsup5star on 7/15/2018
Love this game it is so fun and super cool to play with friends💖👍💯💯
Could be great but...
AngryIFunnyer on 7/14/2018
This game is epic. I love playing it. What bugs me is that the app is free on android but 99 cents on the App Store. You’d think since we have to pay for the app that the decks would be free. Nope! Better empty your piggy bank one more time. The people who run the app are greedy and ruin the game.
Summertime deck
pectotalis on 7/13/2018
I added the summertime deck because it said free and when I added it it said purchased! Bogus! I was charged when it said free. No more!
Where is Harry Potter Trivia?
lunalovie on 7/10/2018
I love this app! But can we please get a Harry Potter card set that’s as hardcore detailed as the Game of Thrones set?
One of The best games ever
Pas ang on 7/9/2018
My family and i play this game all of the time.
Disney Deck
paiges<33 on 7/8/2018
I went to Disney two weeks ago and just found out today I could’ve gotten the Disney cards for free while in the parks. Is there any way I could show proof I was there and get the deck for free? Other than that I love the app!! It’s so fun and everyone enjoys it!
What happened?!
JLStef on 7/7/2018
After the update I lost my Disney Parks deck and now the app is just ads without content if it doesn’t just close on its own anyway. Major downer. Loved this game before. I won’t delete the app yet but if the bugs don’t resolve what’s the point?
This game is great but
color road 14 on 7/6/2018
In the FREE section you can play different cards like 4 of July to but you have to pay for it so what is the point of a free section
dirty diana 762851 on 7/6/2018
Anything that involves Ellen I love. Obsessed with this game. So fun for family gatherings and family game night.
Albarosa1212 on 7/5/2018
I thought the card decks at the bottom were free, instead they charged me .99 cents that I didn’t have.
Good Game
Cesca0811 on 7/4/2018
Such a family oriented game. I love it
imelda081602 on 7/4/2018

So fun!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️😃😃
Download! NOW
Alittle _Different on 6/26/2018
This game is SO FUN! I do recommend it.. You put you phone on you forehead, and the person your playing with has to act like the thing that pops up on the screen. You can’t say anything, only have to act it. There is a tutorial in the beginning of the game. I play it every time I’m bored or waiting for something! And no one minds! Download it!
Andy tha bau5 on 6/26/2018
I guess I’m not gay enough to enjoy this? 0/10 would prefer women again.
heieifbesg on 6/23/2018
I clearly just love it! Keep up the great work!(but I’m only giving you one star)
topscorer1 on 6/23/2018
Sorry Ellen would be nice if it worked all the time.
Super fun but a few suggestions
Stuffielover340 on 6/23/2018
This game is really really fun, but a suggestion I have is that there is an option to make your own heads up game, so maybe you could do people that you know personally, or something like that. Over all, though, this game is really great!

Great8games on 6/22/2018
This game be trippen, but more decks should be available.
Wasn’t worth it
Logan Hatfield on 6/19/2018
It wasn’t worth it I would recommend that you don’t waste your money on this
So stupid
