Great fun game. Our family set out to play one game - which takes about 30 minutes in our experience - end ended up playing 5 games on the bounce because we were enjoying it so much. We played as teams of 2 and it is intended for up to 6 individuals or teams
Players have to put 5 possible answers to a question in order of such factors as size, age, weight, number - against a timer. The cards tell you what factor to use and the topics are very varied. The possible answers are often very random - for example one question is 'sort these things by height : Barack Obama, adult kangaroo, 6ft ladder, T-rex, full size double bass'. This is a pretty typical example. The player gets a point for every answer which is in the right place in order.
Players race round a game board - some squares on the board boost your progress for right answers- some send you backwards for wrong ones. We found people would streak into what looked like an unassailable lead, then be pulled back and caught because of wrong answers when on a dangerous square.
It really is good fun - and the categories are so varied and the answers so random that whilst good general knowledge helps, it isn't necessary to know everything about everything to have fun
Best game we have played in a long time
