What we say: “We played this new family board game on a rainy Sunday afternoon – perfect quality family time! As a family we love quizzes and this was an interesting take on the same format. The questions are read out and everyone has a chance to answer the questions, with “Smart Ass’s” shouting out the answer to early and leaving the more cautious with a chance of winning!
I would say 11 is the lower age limit as there was a little bit of silliness with the name of the game with my 9 year old. The good thing is that as no one is asked a direct question there isn’t the embarrassment factor as with some games when you don’t know the answer! We took turns being the “question reader” and that ensured all got in on the fun too. We loved it and have played it a lot since.”
