You ever wanted to play the hat game, but couldn't be bothered to tear up several sheets of A4? Or fancied a change from always doing a pub quiz in your lockdown video calls?
Look no further!
This online implementation of the classic party game is the ideal solution! Describe, act and mime your way through three rounds of name-guessing fun. With a tried-and-tested party game interface, The Hat Game is super easy to get started with, and is fun for all ages.
No logins, in app purchases, or accounts necessary!
How do I play?
Players are divided in to two teams, A and B. Before beginning, every player places names into the virtual hat. These can be names of celebrities, members of your own party, characters from a book or game - just be confident everyone knows who they are! During each round, players will take turns drawing names from the hat, and attempt to describe them to their teammates. Every successful guess earns a point for the team. The team with the most points at the end wins!
Round one plays like Articulate, where the player who is drawing names cannot use the person's name to describe them. In round two, you are only allowed to use one word to describe the person/character, so it is important you try to remember who was in the hat! In the final round, you must act out the name, without saying any words at all, as in Charades.
To create a room, click the create room button. You will then be instructed to enter your name to join the created room, from within which you can add names into the hat and invite your friends to join via the room code.
To join an already-created room, simply type the four-digit room code into the join room form and press join!
A non app version is available on the website if preferred.
