Review: Smart Ass The Board Game

Last year (gasp I’m so slack), we received the board game Smart Ass to review.

I’m a big board game fan – Trivial Pursuit being my all time favourite, alongside Pictionary.

So when we road tested this one it had a lot to live up to.

Now, first up, I don’t do instructions.  With a board game it’s kind of essential so if I can’t pick up the gist after a quick skim read, you’ve lost me.

Thankfully this one is pretty damn simple – but at the same time pretty damn funny.

You role a coloured die to select from hard ass, who, where and what cards.  The quickest to guess the answer moves forward – if you shout out the wrong answer you’re out of the round.

There are 10 clues on each card so the longer you wait, the easier it gets – but the adrenaline pumps as your desperation to be the first to answer grows.

On Christmas Day my 83-year-old Grandmother beat us all.  Quietly and without a hint of smugness. 

‘I rock at this game’.

And it’s not just about being the most intelligent; often it’s about playing the waiting game and letting your opponents call out ridiculous answers.

This game has stayed.  So good, we played it twice in a row, with a re-match to try and combat the grandparents the following evening.

Perfect for family holidays and dinner parties.

From £13.37 on Amazon.
