Party Catch Phrase Free is essentially the popular Catch Phrase game but in an electronic format. There are five categories of clues to choose from—Entertainment, Sports, The World, Everyday Life & Food, and Miscellaneous—and for each game, you can choose just one, all, or a variety of these categories (as well as custom clues if desired). The game is played by a group of people sitting in a circle with team members alternating. The goal is to have your team guess the clue by describing it without using the word(s) itself or anything that rhymes with it. When your team guesses it, you pass the device on to the next player (from the other team), and this process continues until the buzzer rings after one minute. During gameplay, a counter ticks in the background, increasing speed every 20 seconds. Whoever is holding the device when the buzzer rings, the other team is given a point, and you can choose to play up to anywhere between 1 and 15 points. The free version includes ads at the top of the screen, and the ad-free version can be purchased for $0.99. No internet connection necessary to play.
