"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.

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.

By Clare VINE VOICE on 5 July 2011
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.

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.

This game is not suitable for children -older children cant play it on their own - they cant compete with adults as the questions are too obscure - and theres not much fun in this for adults either.
the three categories of questions are things places and people - and my kids refused to play places and people after only a couple of games - as they involve questions , for example , about obsucure 1920 american filmstars, golfers from the 1950 and places that have changed names several times since the game was made -

the only way the kids could compete was if the adults landed on squares that made them miss a go, or the adults all got the question wrong so the kids got the points, we very soon started to cheat outrageously to give the kids a chance but even this didnt help matters much, even if it did make the game much more enjoyable

I dont think I've ever sent a game back before - but this one I did - Its not a family game at all
I have the horrible idea that some people might buy this in order to get their kids to learn "lots of useful facts in a fun way" - hmmmmmm
personally I'd keep the reciept.

I noticed that one of the reviews for this suggested that this game isn't suitable for young children.. recommended age is 12+!

I played this game with friends and family (kids aging from 11 upwards) and we all had a lot of fun. Obviously the younger members of the family were less able to answer SOME of the questions, they did better in the "what I am?" category.

Very straight forward game. Categories, "where am i?" "what am i?" "who am i?" where you are given around 8 hints (the last of them being initials) guess correctly, move around the board. 2 dice, one coloured (to select category) and one numbered (to move around the board).

I just purchased this game and have introduced it to English-learning students at all levels of group courses. It isn't as much a vocabulary-building tool as some other games, but it really helps the students to hear and speak the "melody" (rhythm, syntax, sentence structure) of English. The 10 hints which must be read out loud might have some difficult or unknown words, but even my lower-level students could understand most of the hints simply from the context. The last hint is always a sentence with gives at least the first alphabetic initial of the person, place, or thing to the questions of "What am I?", "Where am I?", or "Who am I" This is really clever, because even if students haven't understood every single word or even every hint, they have understood enough to make an educated guess. Making students feel confident and successful in their learning is always a good idea. Get this game!
The quality is really not good. The cards are ultra-thin and not well laminated. A drop or two of spilled water on a stack of cards could spell disaster. The board markers are made of tall thin cardboard figures which can be slotted into tiny plastic coloured bases. Students sometimes pound the pieces as they count the numbers of spaces they are moving forward on the gameboard, so the markers are really vulnerable to being bent or broken in half by overzealous players. Unfortunately, you need the markers so that you can lay them on their sides when players lose their turn by guessing incorrectly or landing on the "Dumbass" spaces on the gameboard. My suggestion: buy a laminator and laminate the paper cut-outs so that they can't bend and keep the cards dry.
