Clues Up is a 2-player word association and guessing game. Players take turns giving clues and making guesses over a series of 10 hands. It’s casual, asynchronous, and even a little educational!


Challenge a friend to a game with one of the built-in word packs. Play with classic board game words or try a themed pack like animals, sports, or history.

The challenger sends the first clue. Think of a clue that relates each of the yellow words together, while avoiding a fourth card as much as possible.

When you receive a clue back from your partner, you’ll see all the same words, but the colors will be hidden. Make your best guess which words are related to the clue!

A game happens over a series of 10 hands. Rack up wins and try to get 10 in a row!


Create polls you can share with the public to see their guess. No account required to guess.


Practice giving clues in solo mode at varying difficulty levels. Come up with clues for just 2 cards on easy mode, or dial it way up to a 6 card hand.


Every day, a new hand community-based hand will appear at the top of the app. These games are sourced from the community directly from top players and everyone can make a guess.

I think the game was both mind bending as well as challenging, it really makes you think and also makes you see how others think.

Clues up

I could not find a version of codenames on the App Store. I’m glad I found clues up.
