    It's exactly what diehard gamers feared that the casual gaming revolution was going to inflict on the industry: shallow, gimmicky software whose main selling point is that no one is too young, old or uncoordinated to be able to play it. Buy a real videogame or buy a board game, but don't be a dummy and let Smarty Pants walk away with your 50 bucks.

    Good trivia game... I like the way you ring in and the socring system is good for the most part. I wish there were a larger variety of topicsGood trivia game... I like the way you ring in and the socring system is good for the most part. I wish there were a larger variety of topics and it the questions getting tougher based on your sucess is unfair for when you play with new players. Example my fiancee and I are very good in science, so no all science questions are pretty tough. I dont like the double points dance and have never had to do the tug-of war. Some of the cards are pointless, but i do enjoy the nudging the wheel, it makes for some excitement. Maybe not worth full price but the best trivia gaem i have plaed on a video game system. Oh and compared to the bargin Wii ware TV show King it is a much better trivia game. (TV show king is fun but a lot of luck involved until final round and you can not know the answer to anything and just copy the answers of the stronger players). Full Review »

    Questions are good, movements need to be more full-body, instead of hand motions (you don't want to know what we do instead of Questions are good, movements need to be more full-body, instead of hand motions (you don't want to know what we do instead of "tug-of-war"). Overall, a fun game, but better use of the wii-motes would be appreciated. Also, Player A has too much control...should be equal among all players. Full Review »
