Names In A Hat! is a name guessing party game.

Get your teammates to guess as many names as you can before time runs out; without saying any part of the name or rhyming.

Later rounds limit you to three, then one, then no words.

You can choose from general or speciality name lists including: Game of Thrones characters, Harry Potter characters, and Internet Culture.

This app is based on the classic party game Names In A Hat, also known as The Colander Game and Celebrity.

Great and fun selection of names!

We often play the paper version of this game but this neat app is a far better alternative with a fantastic and diverse selection of well-known names! Perfect for playing with friends and family. The last round with no words is hilarious too!

Laugh out loud fun

I love the pen and paper version of this game and it's even better having it on your phone. It's great fun - especially the later rounds when people are limited to one or no words. I love it - but as the creator of the app I am slightly biased.

Great App!

This is a great app, we’d previously play the game with pen and paper, which was great! With app it is so much quicker to get started, now it is much easier to play in big groups or as an impromptu game! The categories also add extra fun!
