A Paid Deck, for Free!
In honor of Heads Up! being played a billion times so far, the game is offering a paid deck absolutely free. Choose from categories like “Millennials,” “Adult Supervision: Bachelorette Party,” “Disney Parks,” and many more. These decks typically cost upwards of USD $0.99, so it might not be much. Still, it’s better than a thousand lashes with a wet noodle.
Heads Up! is a terrific game, and it isn’t too expensive for what you get. The paid version comes with seven decks, and additional collections start at just under a buck. Some, like the new “Ellen” deck, are free for at least a limited time, and the game regularly has special bundles allowing you to get four or five decks at a steep discount.
