Ratings and Reviews
Very fun, even for middle school
I was pleasantly surprised by how fun, innovative, and interactive this game was, especially for a free app! It's hard to get middle school students involved in getting their social skills up to par, but this gets them competitive and wanting to do better about explaining their answers.
This app is really great for students who need social-cognitive support. I was pleasantly surprised to see a variety of areas that this app covered: idioms, indirect requests, sarcasm, humor, inference, etc. So cool, and definitely recommend it. My students really enjoyed playing the game.
Fun and engaging
This is a great app! I kept waiting to be charged at some point while using it but to my surprise it's actually free! I use it with a 4th grade lunch group and they love it. It is very engaging and the game format is very motivating for my competitive bunch!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
