Hedbanz Review (Spin Master)

What It Is

The game is pretty simple and perfect for young children, ages 7 and up. So, what is Hedbanz? In a nutshell, Hedbanz is the fast-paced, easy to play question game of "What am I?" Players ask Yes or No questions before time runs out to figure out if the cartoon card on their headband is an animal, food, or object. If you want more details on the game watch our previous review, in which we break it all down. 

This re-release adds a free-to-download app that allows you to capture players and add wacky filters to their face. Once you download the app you have two options: Play or Filters. If you choose Play, this means you can use the app to spice up the original gameplay. To get started, line up the rectangle displayed on your phone or iPad screen with a game card and scan it. This will unlock the Face Lenses. You can free play adding the image to the face of your family or friends. Snap a picture and even share it with others! One thing to note, you do not need to use the app to play this game, it just adds some fun in addition to the game. 

The other option is Filters. This allows you just use any filter which is unlocked to have fun with without playing the game or using the cards. If you want to unlock other filters, you will have to eventually add the cards to the deck by scanning them.

Is It Fun?

Hedbanz is already fun, so the app is just a fun addition to the play. Various filters make it fun for kids without turning to social media * and the app is free! Free is always nice.

Who It’s For

Hedbanz is great for any group of friends or family who enjoy game night. It's a classic guessing game that's fun for the whole family to play together, especially if your family is already a fan of Hedbanz.

What To Be Aware Of

I did have some trouble with the app being a bit slow from time to time or turning the screen black momentarily.
