Emoji Charades gets Christmas update

If you’re looking for a fun party game to have on hand for your holiday gatherings (and one where the teens are likely to enjoy it just as much—if not more—than the adults), then Emoji Charades is certainly one to consider. It makes even more sense now that it’s been updated with a Christmas pack.

Emoji Charades—in case you haven’t heard us talk about it before— is a party game in which one player uses his/her phone to translate words into emojis. The other players see those emojis on the Apple TV so they can guess the phrase before time runs out. The game has over 25 trivia packs available via in-app purchase, with more being released each month. And this month, of course, Christmas is the topic.

Active players will notice some other updates, too:

  • New connection system and improved startup guide.
  • Minor bug fixes to improve networking systems.
  • More readable code display text.

Emoji Charades is available as a free download, with various IAPs to suit your needs. If you just want to set up for a single party, you can get a 3-day VIP pass with access to all trivia packs for only $2.99. If you want it for the whole holiday season, the $5.99 30-day VIP pass will carry you through New Year’s. Like it enough, and you can get a lifetime VIP membership for only $23.99.
