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!

One of my favorite trivia games, a nice change from trivial pursuit

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
8 players: 4
11 players: 1

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.

Best R&R game available. Very good party game which does not require extra activity (writing, acting, etc). Works well with just about anyone.

i played this a couple of times while i was in Boston, and enjoyed it tremendously. Recommended highly for the party game crowd, rates a 9 in that genre.

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.

A very well designed party game. I would recommend it to anyone.

I hope to get some new categories at some point.

My favorite trivia/party game. I have never played a game of this where the other players didn't laugh a lot and have fun. Sometimes, the goofy topic pairings just make the game. What other game comes with rubber pants?!

Locally, we've gone through all the base game cards and all the expansion cards. Time to start making home brew lists.

A great trivia/party game that is playable with those who know it all, those who think they know it all, and everyone else.

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.
