My group is warming up to this game better, but I still win all the time.

I personally love the game, best way to tackle trivia of any game I've seen yet. Need some more expansions though!

A ton of fun; one of my favorite party games. The only downside is the lack of cards: right now, there are just two expansions, and one of them is the junior one with some repeated questions. However, I can't imagine that I wouldn't pick up any and all expansions to this game.

Components: Ugly board, but useable pawns, fun smarty pants, and a functional question viewer. The initial pack of cards lasted me seventeen games.

Experience: Family-Fued-style trivia game that is quite entertaining, so long as the timer is used to move things along. The categories are interesting, and the mishmash of the combined categories is entertaining in itself (name a largest island, or a popular US amusement park). It has been only the rarest of categories that found noone among the group to enjoy it. I would gladly play this any time.

In 2014, the trivia is becoming a bit dated and arbitrary (name the ten NFL teams who most recently visited the SuperBowl as of 2004). Sometimes the answers themselves don't seem quite right, but it's fun to argue about them.

First Played: 2004-07-28
Last Played: 2014-12-07
Plays (19):
3 players: 2
4 players: 3
5 players: 4
6 players: 3
7 players: 2

The only trivia game you'll ever need to own. I feel like most trivia games just end up making you feel stupid, but this one strikes a great a balance and you even have fun when you are losing. No higher recommendation

I love this game! It's interesting because the gamers introduced me to it, but my novice-gaming friends love playing it too. It's a nice cross between Outburst and Trivial Pursuit. And the cute rubber pants that come in the box, make for funny comments too.

Nice variant on the Outburst idea, but you can get really hammered by a bad topic if everyone else knows the answers. Love the scoring systems and, of course, the PANTS. For some reason this is one of those party games that I like a lot (and am fairly good at) but those that I play with are lukewarm about playing. So it won't get to table as much as it might deserve. Fun game.

Moves quickly, tons of fun. Good scoring system that does not involve die rolls. Plus you can threaten those that suffer from AP with the hourglass. Oh yeah, and there is a pair of rubber "smarty pants" that gets passed around. Nothing not to like.

Absolutely brilliant trivia game, a mix between "Family Feud", "Trivial Pursuit" and typical German strategy games. My only problem is the kinds of questions you get, if you're not an American who knows alot of TV trivia...you won't get many answers correct. I can see why this game isn't sold here in Finland but other R&R games are. I'm sure they'll have expansions come out soon and no doubt I'll buy them. It's a shame this game was released with a bigger publisher because it may not get the popularity it deserves. My 2nd favorite party game next to "Balderdash/Beyond Balderdash." For a 3-player game, we removed one '2' chip and one '1' chip and that seemed to work quite well.

Great fun with some interesting mechanics for what is essentially a trivia game. It seems to be heavy on (U.S.) TV questions (which I don't mind so much, but others might). Hopefully, the game will prove popular and a second deck with more varied categories will come out.

Quite a good party game. Yes, it's a trivia game, but it's also a memory game as well. Among my friends and family I normally dominate trivia games to the extent that no one will play them with me any more. But I think I'll be able to convince them to play this one since knowing the answers alone won't necessarily make me the winner.

Currently my favourite party/trivia game. Thing is, I can't quite put my finger on why. Maybe I just like quick-moving trivia games -- or maybe it's the pants.

(Update 12/27/08) Needs an update, as it's been surpassed in party gaming goodness by Times Up!, Say Anything, and Wits & Wagers. Still very enjoyable, but man, they really need to release some new cards.

Great Trivia-type game. Friends and relatives tired of the old Trivial Pursuit game format are back and asking to play this. Clever scoring mechanic adds strategy: Who should answer first? Which of the 2 answers that you know can you save for later use...or will someone else give that answer before it is your turn again. Fun!

Best design for a trivia game, weighed down by inferior questions. Its strongest feature is that everyone is involved all the time, not just the reader and answerer. You're always hoping nobody says the answer you have in your head! When I play trivia games, I generally like having teams, so you can discuss answers with teammates. That is not possible with this game, but there is still enough conversation generated, as people go, "Ohhh I know this I know this!!" "Be quiet, I'm thinking." The fun is the tenseness that builds as all the good answers for a question get taken, leaving you racking your brain: "what's left, what's left, aha how about cape verde islands!! dang, julie just took that." I like our house rule of skipping a question if everyone in the group vetoes it. This keeps the game from undergoing one of the problems that some others here have mentioned.

2nd edition supposedly has corrected questions/answers, though based on what I've seen so far, many of the questions are still very vague. Would give it a point higher if the questions were better (i have hopes for the expansion).

Possibly the best trivia game out there! I like the categories (the pop culture ones are fun and I'm from the US, so the US-centric ones don't bother me), the balancing mechanism (the person in last place is the reader, so they can't get slammed that round), and the quickness of the game (best with generous use of the timer).
