Pigeonhole is a fast, fun, comment inducing, conversation starting, “paper and pencil” group game! It provides you with all the game-box type components; you provide the pencil, paper and players. It is a VoiceOver accessible app.

Pigeonhole is a solution for those struggling to find a balance between electronic devices and “old-fashioned” non-electronic fun. You use your electronic device, as well as plain old pencil, paper and conversation!

Want to play a game with grandma in another state or country? Have her join you via FaceTime! (Make sure she has a copy of Pigeonhole so she can see the topics too.) Want an ice-breaker for a team bonding event or for your classroom? Play Pigeonhole! Having a family game night and want to try a new game? [Did someone say Pigeonhole?!]

In this game you will select a subject. Each subject has 15 topics. Choose an alphabet letter by tapping on the resident in-app pigeon! Now each person (or team) has 5 minutes to write down as many words and phrases as they can think of that start with that letter. The person or team who has the most unique responses is the winner. Check out the Rules drawer for more rules.

This game has Subject Drawers that will always be in your app. We occasionally add more Subject Drawers (at no additional charge), and you will see these when connected to the internet, as well as permanently added in future updates.

Good game to make you think

We really like this game as the young & old can enjoy playing this game together. It moves fast & gives us lots of good laughs & just a good time. We recommend this game & our thanks for the one who took the time to create a great family game.

Fun game!

My whole family has fun playing this game. We each have a different favorite category! For me some start letters seem easier than others, but so far we have never "rolled" really hard (impossible?!) ones like x, z... I don't like staring at a screen for long periods of time, so this style of game agrees with me!!

Fun brainteaser!

Fun and simple game for groups of people of all ages... We like it because not everyone has to be around one screen and much easier on your eyes.
