Party Game Timer is a countdown timer that replaces the timers or hourglasses that come with Pictionary, Charades, Taboo, and many other party games. Party Game Timer supports random countdowns, so is ideally suited as a replacement timer for Hot Potato style games like The Last Word or Pass The Bomb.



* Fully configurable random or fixed countdowns with adjustable seconds, not just minutes + hours
* Supports durations from 0 seconds to 24 hours
* Choose from one of many fun sound themes
* Enable or disable ticking noises
* Enable or disable showing how much time is left
* Sounds an alarm when the timer expired. Plays alarm even if silence switch is on or the app is not active, just like the built in Alarms app.
* Animates and vibrates when going off, so you'll notice the timer expiring in a noisy situation
* Looping mode - set Party Game Timer to go off repeatedly
* Voice over and dynamic text support


Party Game Timer is great for:

Games with randomly timed rounds

There are a few party games where a timer goes off randomly - games like Last Word and Pass the Bomb. Party Game Timer can be set to go off after a random amount of time by adjusting a minimum and maximum duration, so it is perfect for these games. Combined with the ability to pick from many different sound themes, you can use Party Game Timer for a much more customized gaming experience. For example, you could increase or decrease the amount of time in a round depending on the skill level of the players. I once played a word game called Pass the Bomb with a group of skilled Scrabble players, and found it useful to make rounds much longer to accommodate for the advanced skill level of the players.

Trivia / party games with short countdowns

In some games you have just seconds to give an answer. These could be trivia games like Jeopardy and Family Feud or party games like the Chain Game or Wits and Wagers. Party Game Timer is great for these games because it lets you adjust short time intervals to the second. The built in timer on your iPhone only handles hours and minutes, so if you need a countdown timer that goes off within seconds, you need Party Game Timer instead.

Party games with timed rounds
There are many party games like Pictionary, Charades, and Taboo that have one or two minute rounds. You could use your iPhone's built in timer or the timer that comes with these games, but since Party Game Timer was made for fun and games, it is a much better fit for this situation.

Slow strategy games
Tired of waiting forever for someone to finish a round of Risk, Stratego, or Scrabble? You can use Party Game Timer to impose a time limit for each round.


Other uses

* Replacement for your existing iPhone or stopwatch timer
Unlike the iPhone's built in timer, Party Game Timer lets you adjust seconds. Party Game Timer also has unusually detailed voice over support.

* Cooking timer
Want to put something in the oven, step outside, and be reminded when it's done? Party Game Timer lets you do this easily.

* Exercise timer
Party Game Timer can go off in intervals (for example, once every 15 minutes), which can be useful for exercising or meditation.

* Fart Machine
Just set the sound theme to Fart and get ready for countless minutes of iFart-like fun!

* Musical Chairs

* Hot Potato

Great for classroom motivation

Mumball gets a little boring sometimes, not with GameTimer. If the game show buzzer goes off randomly while you’re holding the ball -you’re out! Not enough time to play one more round? Well then, if the Gong sounds while you’re holding the ball - you win! Not playing games? Ok. If you are working when the timer sounds you get a treat from the teacher’s desk, or you get to take a break. This tool is totally worth the $0.99. Thanks for making it. I wonder what else I can do with it. I’d give it a five star rating if it had more sounds, or I could add tone from iTunes.

Perfect for Spiceball

This app has changed our lives. Before, we played Spiceball (the best game ever) and it was always ruined by a lack of random timer. Now, fart noises ring out when we least expect it. Everyone stays on their toes.
Not only that, but my girlfriend returned to me. She left because Spiceball was lame. She heard about the timer and came back. She loves me and Spiceball now. I owe her sweet embrace to this app.

Make your own game

Love the app! It has enough versatility for a person to make their own game. Settings are simple and easy to follow and give a short description if you are unsure of what a particular setting will do. Also, various sounds can be used for different audiences.
