Corey Knebel & Michael Blazek Play Heads Up! With Fans
Fans had the chance to play the game Heads Up! (An app made popular by The Ellen Show) with Brewers pitchers Michael Blazek and Corey Knebel over at the Social Media Stage yesterday.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the game, it is similar to a charades or Catchphrase. It’s simply a word guessing game where your friends try to get you to say the word on the screen by giving you hints. Only with Heads Up, you hold the phone above your head and it records video of your friend giving hints. You have sixty seconds to guess as many words as you can.
Michael and Corey played against each other for a couple rounds to warm up and get familiar with the game. Corey had never heard of the game before and thought he was going to play the old kid’s game Heads Up 7-Up on stage instead.
“That’s what I’m working with here,” Michael said, playfully jabbing at Corey.
They picked the category Blockbuster Movies and neither of them fared too well, but when the category switched over to Brewers Baseball, a custom category we designed for Brewers On Deck, the guys performed much better.
We invited this pair of fans up on stage to take on the pair.
After that, the guys tried to guess the clues from the crowd:
Thanks again to Michael and Corey and all of the fans who participated in this segment at the Social Media Stage! I know it was at the very end of the day, so I appreciate y’all sticking around!
P.S.-This game is a really fun, easy party game and it’s only $.99 to download the basic version! You can then add on different decks and even create your own, like we did for this segment. Personally recommend!
