Family Face Off Description:

Phonewalled by your family? You know the drill: everybody's head is buried in their own device, so no one's actually present.

Break the #phonewall with Family Face Off, the free game that brings your crew together for REAL face time.

Variety: Play 9 of your favorite family games in one session!
Split up into teams, then compete in rotating rounds of Charades, Pictionary, Heads Up, Trivia, Catch Phrase and Memory all in one game - with a few surprise categories as well!

Flexibility: Set Your Own Family Time and Game Modes
Play what you want for as long as you want. Customize the settings for just a few rounds to kill time while you're waiting for your table, or keep the fun going longer to make that road trip go by in a blink. Play all categories, or just the games your family enjoys the most.

Simply Hilarious and Surprisingly Meaningful
Entertain your kids for hours, foster communication and create shared memories that last a lifetime!
