For fans of The Ellen DeGeneres Show comes a variation of the popular game Head’s Up that she plays with her celebrity guests. The game is simple to play. Your objective is to guess the secret word from a set of clues that are given to you before the timer runs out.
There is both a free and paid version of the skill. The free version allows you to play from a set categories that include superstars, blockbuster movies, and favorite fictional characters. There’s enough content here to get you by for some time but at some point they will begin to repeat themselves. You can however purchase additional decks in 5 packs for $0.99 if you’re an Amazon Prime member ($2.99 for non-Prime members). The show also puts out limited edition decks that you’ll want to keep an eye out for.
The skill is fun to play but has some minor issues. The first being that it uses Alexa’s voice which can struggle enunciating words properly. This can leave you scratching your head at some of the clues. The other issue is that it sometimes doesn’t understanding your answer when those answers are complex. This can be frustrating.
The game has a ton of potential but unfortunately needs some fine tuning. It’s worth enabling for some quick fun (especially for fans of the show) but over time you’ll likely find yourself wanting more.
