Outsmart your game night! GIVEAWAY!!

With the holiday season right around the corner, and winter settling in (at least here!), I'm sure there's bound to be some game nights in your future! Playing a game together is a great way to pass the evening, indoors and warm! :) Perhaps the game night collection needs a new game? Perhaps you haven't found that perfect item for your trivia-loving recipient?

Well, look no further! Outsmart has been launched in Canada!

Outsmart is a trivia game where each question has multiple correct answers. How many answers you need to find is determined by the roll of the dice. Each player has a chance to write down their answer(s) while the sand timer ebbs away. Then each player has a chance in turn to say any one of their answers, and points are awarded for original answers.

We played this with my parents and really had a great time! Questions come in a variety of categories - Outsmart would appeal to people who pay attention to facts, details about events, people, geography etc. The game is rated 8+ and we felt it would be challenging for and 8-year old to play (along with older children or adults) and impossible for a group of 8-year olds. The game is played quite quickly, meaning that even a game of 6 rounds doesn't take all evening.

There were a few challenges the first time we played: 2 game roles are called "leader" and "reader," which rhyme beautifully but can lead to tongue twisters until you get used to it! :) Question cards slide into a "secret pocket" to conceal the answers, and we found the pocket design a bit challenging, although it did hide the answers really well. Pads of score cards and papers upon which to write your answers are included - and could have been printed double-sided to accommodate 12 rounds instead of 6 per sheet.

Outsmart is available at Toys R Us, as well as several local toy stores for a MSRP of $19.99.

Win it!!

2 lucky Glimpse readers will each win their own copy of Outsmart!!
