Why We Like It:
A fabulous twist on your average trivia game. One player is the reader, and announces the category of the card to the rest of the players. Most cards have 2 categories - for example "Characters in Lord of the Rings:The Two Towers and Countries that belong to NATO". The reader chooses a start player, and players take turns naming things that they think are on the list. The reader uses the nifty little device to mark correct answers. The first player to give an incorrect answer gets a 3 point chip; the next 2 wrong answers get a 2 point chip, and the last few wrong answers get a 1 point chip. Once all the items have been guessed or all the chips are gone, the round is over. Each player moves forward the number of spaces equal to their chip value, except for the Smarty Pants, the person who gave the last correct answer - they get to throw away one chip. The next reader is the person in last place. The game ends when one or more players goes over the end line on the board; the winner is the player closest to the start. Forget Trivial Pursuit - this is much more fun. Plus, who wouldn't love a game that comes with a pair of rubber pants?
