Heads Up! Quick Info

Heads Up!

Give your team clever one-word clues to help them spot their agents in the field.

A box with a person holding a card on their forehead that says "Heads Up! Party Game"



HEAD’S UP 2nd EDITION lets you play the party game version of the popular app! Race the timer to guess the words you’re wearing in your headband, based on your teammate’s clues. HEAD’S UP 2nd Edition includes all new cards in four categories: Act It Out, where you act out your clues; Superstars and Blockbuster Movies, where you describe your clues; and an exclusive deck, Sound It Out, where you can only make sounds! Earn chips for each card you figure out. The player who earns the most chips wins! It’s the family game that’s heads above the rest!
