5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't be simpler! 8 Mar 2008
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
"Smart Ass" is, arguably, one of the most basic games you can buy these days - but the best thing is, it's still fun to play.

The difference with this game is that there is no need to fumble around with pages of instructions and rules, or variations of rules - all they have to provide you with is one slip of paper and you're away.

It's basically a trivia game - all the family can play, and there is the all-important element of 'all play'- having more than one person looking for the same answer. And it really is good fun for everyone.

The only drawback i can see is that some of the questions, especially the 'Who am I' questions are much more suited to an American audience - some questions even adults won't be able to get. However, spending an hour or so replacing them with easier ones made up by yourself could solve this issue and produce a better game experience.

Overall, a high-rated game that's great fun and original.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable family game - short and sweet 31 Oct 2010
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
We really enjoyed this game, you don't have to wait your turn to score points/roll the dice you just butt in when you think you know the answer. Easy rules, just listen to the clues that get easier and easier and shout when you have an idea what/where/who it is. 4/5 overall. Minimum age really is about 12 years.

We got this as our new family board game for Christmas. It had to appeal to an 11 year old all the way up to an 85 year old. And it did. As a family we love quizzes and this was an interesting take on the same format. Everyone heres the question in the form of ever more obvious (or are they) statements, with "Smart Ass's" shouting out the answer to early and leaving the more conservative with a chance of winning. We played it about ten times on xmas day and rarely had the same winner.

I'd say ten is the lower age limit - the good thing is that as no one is asked a direct question there isn't the embarrassment factor as with some games. 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. If you have an outgoing family or friendship group that likes quizzes then you can't miss with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun 5 July 2011
By Clare VINE VOICE
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The best thing about this game is that you don't have to wait around and take turns which lets face it can get boring! In this game you take in turns to move around the board and be in charge of reading the cards. Each card has a category and then has statements/clues which can help you to get the answer. The reader reads down the card and anyone can shout out the answer as soon as they think they know it. If you shout out the wrong answer you are locked out of trying again, wait too long to answer and someone could beat you to it.

This was fantastic fun for our family (all 18+) but some of the questions I found hard because the people questions were more for an older generation or had an American link.

Still this game is fun and I would definaitely play it again.

Smart Ass is an excellent game suitable for young and old and all abilities. The game is fun to play and sometimes, with its wacky scoring system, as it says on the box, "even if you're a dumb ass you can win".
