Word Charades is the best word guessing party game in the App Store. I've worked hard on this update, and I really think you guys are going to love it. It's beautiful. It just works. And it's true to the classic game rules that we all know and love.


Rated 4.5 Stars by - "There are some neat extras tucked into the Word Charades app that make it the best digital rendition of this gaming style we’ve ever seen".


Simply put, Word Charades is the best word guessing game on the App Store. There are no complicated settings, the interface is clean, simple, and the card management feature is unmatched. The downloads cards feature lets you download new cards every day. This means Word Charades is not only the best value amongst its competitors right now, it keeps getting better with time.

What is Word Charades? It’s a fun word guessing game played between two teams. I grew up playing this game with my friends and family it remains my favorite game to play at family get togethers. The goal is to get your team to guess the word at the top of the card by describing that word to your team without using 5 forbidden words listed below it. Imagine trying to get your team to guess Justin Bieber without saying: Hair, You Tube, Baby, Singer, or Pop-Star. You have 60 seconds to get your team to guess as many as they can. Trying to describe things without using the most common words under the stress of the timer really makes for a fun experience.



The best word guessing game experience found on the app store, loaded with features for the most convenient game experience including.

Over 2000 game cards (and growing) that will never repeat during a game

A visual timer that helps the clue giver see how much time remains

A Manage Cards feature that lets users create their own game cards for free, and a download cards feature that lets users download an unlimited supply of user-created/developer approved game cards. This feature is unmatched amongst the competition and will keep your games fresh as new cards are continuously added using the download cards feature.

Great game

Overall a great game. The addition of custom words and downloaded words is a great idea. I am a teacher and use this in my classroom for language development.

This game could use a more efficient way of downloading words instead of one at a time, such as downloading an entire category of words. Also, a few simple customization options could really enhance the game, such as team names, team colors, the option to change the time length, and being able to change the team color so that the transition from one team to the next is very obvious. But even without these great ideas, it's still a well done game.

So fun and well made

I loved this game. My friends and I played it for a couple hours last night. I think it's even better than having the actual board game. My only complaint is that the words ran out after only a couple hours, so now the app is useless to me. I also think that all the "cards" are copied from the board game itself, making it useless as well. The app is so well made I wish there was more data! Great for a free app though!

Great game!

This is a FANTASTIC family game! Everyone in the family, from my middle/high school cousins to the oldest parents, love to play this together. Probably the only activity beside the meal we all do together on family holidays. Can't recommend highly enough. The developer is also very responsive, emailed me back in response to my feedback in under an hour. He is very worthy of your money and this app is worth 5 times its price.
