Emoji Game

How to Play

The Emoji Game is easy to play. One person (or group) uses English to describe each emoji and another person (or group) must guess the emoji. When describing an emoji, a player cannot use the name of the emoji, and this player cannot use gestures, but he or she can use any other English words to describe it. The player tries to get the other player to correctly guess as many emoji as possible in 2 minutes. The other player can ask questions in English at any time, and if he or she does not know how to say the name of the emoji in English, he or she can use Japanese. When playing the Emoji Game, a player can skip only one emoji per turn.
