One of the leading OTT platforms Netflix also happens to be the world’s leading streaming entertainment service with 221 million paid memberships in over 190 countries enjoying TV series, documentaries, feature films, and mobile games across a wide variety of genres and languages. Now Netflix has introduced a new game- Heads Up!
Netflix fans, your get-downs, grand balls, and A.V. club meetings just got a lot more “luxe.” “Today, we are globally launching Netflix Heads Up! an exclusive version of the popular mobile game for all Netflix members with Netflix-inspired decks. The game is a twist on charades where players have to guess the words on another player’s forehead before the one-minute timer runs out. In partnership with Ellen Digital Ventures, Netflix Heads Up! gives members the chance to put their Netflix I.Q. to the test with 28 decks inspired by some of our popular series like Bridgerton, Stranger Things, and Squid Game, beloved social channels like GEEKED or Strong Black Lead, and an array of entertainment categories.” wrote Netflix in their news release.
Here’s how to play the game-
First, pick a category. One player holds the device to their forehead while trying to guess the words on their screen as friends excitedly shout out clues.
Got one right? Great! Now just tilt head down to keep on playing! Stumped and can’t figure out the answer? Don’t stress! Simply tilt your head up to skip to a new word!
Save videos of the hilarity for your own amusement or share them online. Challenge your smarty-pants friends and entertain your kids for hours with diverse categories.
