Heads Up! with friends is designed to be played with two or more players and it's certainly a new concept for me - but a good one.
Maybe ideal for when out having a few drinks with buddies - you need to pick a category and then hold the BlackBerry on your forehead. Yep, you did read that right. A word/words will appear on-screen which you won't be able to see but your buddies will. They need to describe the word to you in order for you to guess the answer. If you get it right you tip the device upwards or alternatively, if you can't guess the answer you can tip downwards to pass and move onto the next. Each turn will also have a counter on it so you will only get a minute to guess the word before losing that particular round.
It might sound a bit strange and the video sure doesn't do it justice, so you will have to trust me on this one. The game is simple - yet clever and although I haven't had the opportunity to actually play it with my friends yet, I think this could be a good one for around the Christmas table. It gets the thumbs up from me and kudos to the developer for a great idea.
