How does it work?

The goal of this game is to explain five words to your teammates within 30 seconds. The more words your teammates manage to guess, the more points you will earn.

Game setup

Create two or more teams with at least two players per team. Before you begin you are able to pick a language pack for the words that you will be guessing. Further selection can be made by disabling certain categories, such as sports.

Play a round

When you start your turn, the 30 seconds timer will start. You will have 30 seconds to explain the words on your screen to your teammates. You are not allowed to:

  1. Use translations for a word;
  2. Use the word or parts of the word itself;

You can mark words as correctly guessed by tapping the word on your screen.

Ending your turn

When you have run out of time you will still be able to mark words as guessed. You will receive 1 point for every correctly guessed word and you will receive a bonus point if all five words have been guessed.


Every team will take turns until a team has reached 30 points and becomes the winner.

Multi vs Single device

This game is played with multiple players. You can choose to let everyone play on their own device or to play on a single device.

Multi mode

Other players can join your game by:

  1. Scanning the QR code on your screen
  2. Navigating to the magic link that you can share.
  3. Entering the code in the app that appears on your screen.

Everyone can enter their own name and are placed into the waiting room. You have the power to assign each player to a team.

When it is your turn, your words will appear on your own screen, all other players will see who's turn it is and how many seconds there are left.

Multi mode is a good anti-cheat system. All players will see what the actual words are at the end of the turn. You can call out your opponents if they have been using parts of the actual word in their explanation!

Single mode

The difference with Multi mode is that every turn is played on the same device. This is ideal if you are playing with people that do not own a device.

What should I pick?

We 100% recommend playing Multi mode. The anti-cheat mechanic that comes with it is one primary example of why you should use this mode. Other than that, you can keep your phone to yourself the whole game, no greasy fingers on your device with Multi mode!

Five in thirty in a nutshell

Five in Thirty is a thrilling and fast-paced trivia game that will put your communication skills to the test. The game is simple: players are given five words and must explain them to their teammates without using the word itself. For every word that is correctly guessed, the team earns a point, and if all five words are guessed correctly, the team earns a bonus point.

The game is perfect for parties, family gatherings, or even as a team-building exercise at work. It is easy to set up and can be played with any number of players.

Each player will have thirty seconds to explain their words to their teammates without using the word itself. For example, if the word is "butterfly," the player might say "It's a flying insect with colorful wings that often flutters around flowers." The team will then have a chance to guess the word. If they guess correctly, they earn a point.

The team with the most points at the end of the game wins. However, the real fun of the game is in the creative and clever ways that players come up with to explain the words. It's a great way to get people thinking outside of the box and to challenge their problem-solving skills.

One of the great things about Five in Thirty is that it can be played with people of all ages and skill levels. It's a game that requires creativity and quick thinking, not necessarily a vast knowledge of trivia facts. Plus, it's a great way to get to know your teammates better, as you'll be able to see how they think and communicate.

In addition to being a fun party game, Five in Thirty can also be a valuable tool for team-building exercises at work. It can help to improve communication and problem-solving skills, as well as foster a sense of camaraderie among team members. Employers can even make the game more challenging by using industry-specific words and terms.


Five in Thirty is now available on the web, the App Store, and the Google Play Store, making it a cross-platform game that can be enjoyed by players on any device. This means that players can join in on the fun from anywhere, whether they're on their computer, phone, or tablet. The game is perfect for parties, family gatherings, or even as a team-building exercise at work.

One of the unique features of Five in Thirty is the ability to create games on multiple platforms. This means that players can create a game on the web version and invite players to join in on the App Store or Google Play Store version. This allows for a seamless and convenient gaming experience, no matter what device the players have.
