Test your mil­len­nial knowl­edge with this mind­less, fun game

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

“Guess the Emoji” has you do pretty much ex­actly what you think you would: guess the mean­ing of strings of emoji. Some­times the ques­tions are es­sen­tially a “say what you see” puz­zle — a flag and a ship be­come “flag­ship” — while oth­ers are more the­matic. In most cases, play­ers will be able to work their way through them, though there are hints avail­able if needed.

You can earn free hints by com­plet­ing puz­zles, or pay a min­i­mum of $1 to col­lect more in those in­stances where you’re re­ally stumped. The app is adsup­ported. This is not a so­phis­ti­cated game. You prob­a­bly won’t be far off in call­ing it stupid. But it is strangely fun and pleas­antly mind­less. And that sort of thing can be im­por­tant to have on hand some­times.

Free, for iOS and An­droid de­vices.
