Great concept based on 20 questions
- Bool Pool
Hedbandz gets great reviews from owners who say it's a quick-paced, easy-to-learn game that kids can play with each other, though it's also fun for the entire family.

Hedbanz is a quick thinking, fun game that involves asking “What am I?” Players ask yes or no questions to figure out what the card is that is displayed under the headband on your head. The fast pace of the game makes players think on their feet.
- Thoroughly Reviewed
Our family loved this game and will be playing it for a very long time! It is not one of those games that will sit in your game closet for a few years!
- Surviving A Teacher's Salary
The game has a very easy concept–and it’ll be familiar to grown-ups who’ve endured some..well, grown-up card games.
- Mommy Base
This game comes with everything that is needed to play including the timer.
- Kids Toys News
Hedbanz is the ideal travel game no batteries needed and you can quite easily adapt it to play it on the road. You simply have to guess ‘What am I?’ based on the card on the headband on your head. Very easy game for 2-6 players and equally as much fun whether you have 2 or 6 players.
- The Mamma Fairy
We love that this board game comes with everything you’ll need to play. You strap on your headbands, start asking funny questions, and making wild guesses without complicated setups and rules.
- The German Wife
Hedbanz is not only fun, but inherently educational. Kids will flex their deductive reasoning skills with the game’s simple question-and-answer premise.
- Parenting Lounge
It is so much fun to sit around the table with a big bowl of popcorn and play this game. We did not even care who ended up winning, it was just fun family time that we will always cherish.
- Two Boys One Girl And A Crazy Mom
What experts didn't like
Fewer cards make the game repetitive
- Bool Pool
The only real complaint that reviewer have is that the game only comes with 74 cards, so if the game is played often enough, it doesn't take long to go through them all.

The only issue that some reviews have is the timer. Each player is allowed 45 seconds to guess what is on his or her card. It’s not enough time.
- Mommy Base
The only hang-up was that the timer was only about 45 seconds long, considering it took about 10 seconds per question that was not long enough and we ended up turning it over three times over per turn.

From The Manufacturer

Play Hedbanz, the quick question game of “What am I?” Ask “yes” or “no” questions to figure out if the cartoon on your head is an animal, food or man-made object. Be the first player to guess what you are and win! Hedbanz – the game where everybody knows by you! Spice up your family game night with the Hedbanz Board Game, a fun, fast-paced, and simple question game that everyone aged 6 and up can enjoy. In a group of two to six players, you'll draw an identity card for an animal, food, or common object but with one catch--everyone but you will see the card, displayed by the headband on your forehead. The goal is to deduce who or what you are by asking the players questions before the clock runs out. The Hedbanz game comes with a stack of picture cards, each featuring an animal, food, or common object. The categories are few and simple, but this allows everyone, even young children, to get in on the family fun. And because you'll be racing against the one-minute sand-clock timer, each round moves quickly, ramping up your energy and challenging your wit. This board game comes with everything you'll need to play. Your group of two to six players will be strapping on headbands, asking funny questions, and making wild guesses without complicated setups and rules. Playing Hedbanz is simple. After dealing one card and three chips to each player, take your card and place it in your adjustable headband without peeking. When your turn arrives, ask each player a question about who, or what, you are ("Am I a food?"). If you get stuck, the sample questions card offers tips on the types of questions you might ask. When you get a yes, your questions will become more specific ("Am I cooked?" or "Did Dad serve me for dinner last night?") until you're ready to guess the answer ("I am spaghetti!"). For each identity you guess correctly, you'll discard one of your chips. If you give up, you'll collect a chip from the chip bank and be dealt a new card. The first player to get rid of all her chips is the Hedbanz winner.
