Test Your Triva Knowledge With Smarty Pants For the Wii

When I went home for the holidays I knew my family would go nuts over Guitar Hero III, but I had no idea the screaming and hollering that would ensue when I popped in Smarty Pants for the Wii. Picture old-school Trivial Pursuit meets electronic Jeopardy and that's exactly what this game is about — plus the additional fun of being able to use a wiimote! Smarty Pants is a new trivia game that comes with 20,000 questions across eight different categories that are suitable for both adults and children.

Although you can play this game alone, it's certainly more fun with friends or family as questions are timed and you are able to play simultaneously. You can even enter your age for age-specific questions to increase the difficulty level (although in my case it made me want to brush up on my trivia knowledge)! Other fun features include being able to import your Mii avatars, having "dance-offs" for additional points, and participating in wiimote tug-of-wars when players buzz in at the same time. Smarty Pants is currently priced at $40.

This is such a wonderful thing that you can do and use with the kids. I wish that we had had this available when I had 8 little kids to amuse.

that sounds amazing! i was going to get that scene it for xbox 360 but our friends bought the board game for us, so we saw no reason in buying the 360 game. but this would be really fun with our friends, they would love it. maybe i'll use my free game rental coupon to try that out!
