Exciting, especially if developers continue with u
Great game to play with family in lockdown and using an online video app so they can see the board. If the developers actually
made the board virtual within the app itself and comms by sound and vision it would be a unique winner of a product.
Great Game. Lots of Fun.
I love this game. Good variety of categories and up to date questions. For those of you who have said you can’t reconnect if you
lose connection in remote play - you can. If you close the app you can then re-open the app and it saves the game as auto save
game. Click on auto save game underneath new game button. Everyone can then reconnect with the new join code that comes up.
Thoroughly enjoyed outsmarted
I have played this a few times now remotely with my family. Very good and the time whizzes by. No real problems apart from the pub
question logo is different on the board to what is on the questions, caused a little confusion at first but sorted out.
Haven’t played since the update earlier this month so don’t know if glitches solved. A board on line would be great as it
would make playing a lot easier.
What a great game, yes a couple of glitches, but for a new game it was really good fun, played remotely with the family &
generally worked well, the introduction of a Virtual Board would be a great next step, well done the developers, keep up the good
This is the best fun since the birth of Trivial Pu
We LOVE this game.... apart from keeping the old brain box ticking over... my whole family can join in... Bolton, Greenwich
Grimsby it’s like we’re all in the same room.... bringing everyone together.... Of course my husband INSISTS on being
Einstein.. I just wish there were more female characters.... (or better still to be able to be whoever you like)... you’ll never
have a lonely lockdown with this game to play......
Good game with great potential
Yes there are some glitches however saying that 90% of the time the game works great and we have had lots of fun playing this and
expect to carry on enjoy it in the future since the questions will be kept up to date unlike your typical board games.
Good nearly great
Bought as a gift. Played local gameplay which was fun and app worked great. Also done couple of times with friends remotely,
again worked well but fiddly due to having to use another app to show video of game board & pieces so others could see, this
should be better once virtual board arrives on app. Were some repeated questions but again believe latest update resolves this.
All in all a really enjoyable game that can be done with friends remotely in lockdown.
Great Game and loving it.
Just to mention to the person above me. Are you sure that the question said “ How many strings does a Base Guitar have? “
Because that has 4 strings. Anyway absolutely great game with people in the house and to play with people who are living
somewhere else. Very good how it adds questions about the news that happened during the previous week. Cannot wait until the add
on packs come out. I highly recommend in buying this game during this cra##y pandemic.
Can’t believe someone has thought of this before!
Absolutely love this game!! I preordered it back in October and it arrived just before Christmas (I knew about the wait) and it
did not disappoint! New questions are being added all the time which I love! Fantastic way to bring the family together, near and
far, with the use of Zoom especially with the Pandemic. We will continue to use this for years to come 😍
I have given this game 5 stars as the concept is an amazing idea. The quality of the board and pieces is really good and their
customer services is awesome. As they are in their infinite stages all comments are valuable feedback and the team are working
hard to iron out any teething issues, such as repeated pieces and broken Einstein! While at the same time building new content. No
I don’t work for them, I am a sponsor who invested into something that showed promise and with our patience, feedba
Good family quiz but annoying when it crashes mid
Love the game but twice now it has crashed mid game and this really frustrates. The other thing that needs altering is giving an
option to go back if you select a topic rather than a ring question.
Good fun for multiple age groups to play together
Really pleased with this. The fact that the questions are App based means you won’t run out very quickly and hopefully they will
keep them updated. It has been great during lockdown when we haven’t been able to see family as we had hoped. We got the grey
characters and had fun painting them with nail polish
Had the game since Christmas, we have played weekly remotely with our daughters and their families in their homes. One or two
things to sort out, but these will be sorted. It’s a very good game liked by all our family, juniors, teens and adults.
The game arrived on time and we had no problems with it :)
This the future.
Trivial pursuit / who wants to be a millionaire online combo with lots more. The concept is fantastic and the initial version lays
foundation for what is already an awesome achievement. We used 4/5 times with remote family and everyone loved it. Found the 30/60
minutes more fun than playing the whole game. However the future enhancements make it worth the investment- get on board - but
the game you will love it.
(We photographed the board game and sent it to the remote played - who printed and
Really pleased with this. It arrived when it said it would, great communication and easy to follow the online tutorials. This
provided some much needed virtual fun with families & friends during a time when real meet ups were not possible. Excellent idea
and great to be inclusive for all with difficulty level settings for different age ranges. Well done great development and looking
forward to more games and future updates. Thank you.
Great Game - Glad I backed
I backed this game from Kickstarter and couldn’t wait for it to be released.
Once I had the board I must say I wasn’t disappointed. Yeah there have been some small teething problems with repeats questions,
but hey these guys delivered a game in time for Christmas ams are continually improving.
The game is brilliant, the classification of player ability has allowed my whole family to enjoy a game with a level playing
field. The questions are limited:-) but a pack of 7000+ questions to start wit
Fantastic game! We had so much
fun playing this game with our family and friends over the holidays, especially because we were able to play remotely. If you like
interactive fast action trivial pursuits and who wants to be a millionaire I recommend you play this game - it’s even better!
I received this as a Christmas gift and we all love playing it. Love the fact that the boys (who have been prone to cheating in
the past) can’t do that with this. Love that it’s so up to date and you can use your own device. Can’t wait for new packs to
Great concept - great game. A genuine game changer. Really like the cool content and it’s suitability for all ages.
Looks set to constantly evolve so it won’t get forgotten about in a store cupboard somewhere. Well done!👍👍
This is a brilliant game. So easy to play.
Easy to play with everyone
This game has been great. With everyone in different households, we’ve been able to log in and play together without a hitch. I
also love the variety of questions so it feels like there’s something for everyone.
Good game but some teething issues
My wife bought this game and we played a couple of games before New Year which performed ok and we enjoyed but did start to see
repeat questions. We had the same problem as others at New Year and opened up a support request which they responded to confirming
the server issue in AWS. I also looked at the knowledge base and that indicated an issue on iOS with repeats so yesterday we set
up a PC as master and we got good performance and much less repeats. Looked at upcoming January updates and hope

Played this game Christmas Day remotely with friends in Ascension Islands. Loved it ! Great game well done Outsmarted
The best interactive game
Wow, what a game....Outsmart is the best interactive game on the market...it is awesome.
The concept is just fantastic, the application is just so clever, full of excitement for all ages...everyone playing around the
game board gets to control the game while the get their questions correct and they have their destiny in their hands...
Remote play is good too and will be even better once the virtual game board has been developed so everyone playing can get
So worth waiting for the post
After being unable to register game on arrival (17th December) a quick response from the help team sorted it out and we’ve
played 4 or 5 times now and think it’s great. A few glitches here and there but the team behind it seem to be monitoring the app
and sorting things as they’re reported - so I’m optimistic things will only improve going forward. Give it time guys, it’s a
brand new game 👍
It is a great game! Lots of thought has been put into it. But there are a few glitches, for example when I have press extra 30
seconds, it has not worked. However, very good!
Good game but speed of questions not good
We played this with friends and it started great and was really quick between questions. Both other families said it was great and
were interested in buying, but half way through the game upon each question it started taking 30s - 1 m for the questions to load.
This took the fun out of the whole experience and made the game take twice as long to play.
Sort this issue out and it would be a 5 star review and you would sell a load more. But if it stays like this, then I would take
We have loved playing this game over Christmas. It has worked brilliantly. If the game freezes, come out of the app and go back in
as the auto save feature is brilliant and you just pick up where you left. This has only happened once though and we’ve played
it loads! Family in Ibiza have joined our game too. This is an absolute must game! I highly recommend it.. and now we’re in
another lock down this will save our sanity as it has done so far! What a great game!!
With Covid spoiling the festive meet up played this remotely with family and worked perfectly. Easy to register and easy to play.
Looking forward to future updates in the new year.
Great idea and app. not sure what existing reviews are referring to about starting up the game as it took us 5 mins and was great.
had a slight issue with questions and contacted the team, only to receive a phone call assisting me within hours 👍 recommend!!
Brilliant idea, brilliant game
Especially in times like this where family and friends can’t meet this was a perfect game to play. We joined on teams so we
could see each other and played on a phone or tablet. Even my 16 year old son came off the Xbox and enjoyed it. Only reason for 4
not 5 stars was a question or two came up twice and an iPad wouldn’t work for myMum for the second game but she did say it was
running out of battery. Sons phone wouldn’t click either which was odd but didn’t ruin anything. Great idea. Great up
Contrary to some reviews on here . Game was easy to set up on iPad and airplay to television. ... just read the instructions !
It’s kept the whole family entertained over Xmas with no glitches or display problems at all .
Game will only get better in the coming weeks with bug fixes and remote play improvement .
Superb Game !
Mixes the trivial pursuits game play with the board and an online interactive quiz. We’ve played locally and remotely with zero
issues (iOS). We set up a zoom session on PC so really felt like the remote player was joining in and the device sync was
seamless. Really great fun! Only suggestion would be to limit the number of correct answers to limit a players run or maybe move
on to the next player if you get a ring question right. Enjoyed it so much though 👍
Potential to be a great game
Like the idea and format. Just a few things letting it down but hopefully this can get sorted quickly
A) spelling errors in questions
B) picture/visual question does not show on every device - only the lead device.
C) we played with 3 phone and iPhone but struggled to cope when all touching buttons at the same time and crashed the game.
D) at the end (final question) it jumped from 30 seconds to 2 seconds so couldnt answer question. The next player then had their
go on the final question and j
Great concept - but repeated questions
Love the game and the app - about time something was brought to the table like this. However we thought we had over 3000 questions
included in the pack price, however during the 1st game the questions was repeated, then also some of the same ones came up on the
next game too - so we bought the extra game pack, this gave us over 5000 questions - these also repeated, Especially on the final
round questions - which did make it easier to be honest - haha but not what we was expecting - just needs a
Can get stale
Good game and good concept but huge disappointment with nearly 8000 questions and getting repeats constantly even after playing
just a few times. The worst round for repeats is the final round, we are not playing again now until this is ironed out. Also
where are the other question packs promised January and we’re nearly in March?
Update keeps crashing
Since the update the game constantly crashes
And I definitely didn’t have any classes on mythology in school - way too much in back to school
Great game concept but app is so glitchy!
We’ve only managed to complete one full game, and then it was when the 2 people playing were using the host device. Whenever we
try to play with remote players it’s crashes, saying please wait connecting to server, all the while your game time is ticking
down. I don’t know if it’s because it’s a Friday night and lots of people are trying to connect to the servers, but surely
the developers should take that into consideration? Really frustrating, it might be a new game, but it’s not cheap and it
Great game when can play
Love this game but nearly every time we have had to restart due to the server locking up. Very frustrating.
Not managed complete a game yet!
App works fine for a while in team mode and then either host drops out on connected devices or connection is dropped. Can
reconnect to game but it just shows on team screen.
Not been able to complete a single game to date!
Great concept, rubbish execution.
Really enjoy the game, it’s basically trivial persuit, a simple concept and enjoyable to play.
My only issue is the app, it crashes out and glitches quite a bit, especially since the new update. Tried to play tonight remotely
with friends (yay lockdown!) but after the 5 Rhine it glitches during the game, we gave up and called it a night.
New update keeps failing
Old version was a lot more stable. Now it crashes out nearly every time we’ve attempted to play. I hope the devs will fix this
PLEASE fix the bugs!
The game plays great – when it works. It’s absolutely necessary that you make it possible to rejoin a game if you’re kicked
out. Can’t wait for this to be rectified because it’s great fun being able to play with family far away while video calling
and being able to see everything all at the same time. Definitely worth 4/5 stars once everything is ironed out.
Loads of glitches
Need to update asap and sort out all the glitches please , half the time the 'add time' option doesn't work , every other go we
have to wait for anything up to 5 mins for it to load up the question making the game quite long to the point where we sometimes
give up . Could be good if the little annoying problems get sorted . Please ....
Good game but many glitches
Ordered this game and was so excited, the first time we played did not disappoint. However, the games since then have.
Not gonna lie, it’s very similar to Trivial Pursuit. With more updates questions. Which leads me onto the questions themselves,
it says over 2500 questions. Apart from the first game, we are getting repeated questions every game which is not fair for people
we are playing, I’m sure this can be sorted with an update?
Also apart from the first game, the game crashes a lot on the
Really good family game
Played the game New Year’s Eve and was working fine but game started buffering and took 1 minute between questions, nothing
wrong with internet but the app. We had to end the game as taking too long. Also during the game we kept getting repeat questions
which was not was advertised when we bought the game, it stated no repeat questions. Disappointed with this purchase as I spent
the money to have the game for New Year’s Eve and we couldn’t finish. Would be an excellent game if it weren’t for all
Couldn’t finish game
App glitches, on picture questions picture not shown on devices. Froze after 45 mins of a 60min game and no way to restart. What a
waste of time 😭 Great idea, needs more work on app.
Shame as when it works it was ok but after a number of crashes it’s impossible to get everyone back in to the game. Spend too
much time restarting and trying to rejoin games to make enjoyable experience.
Fun game but connection has been poor multiple times making it inedible to play.
Lack of questions ruins it
We have now played 3 games as a family of 4 and it’s a now turned in to a memory game rather than a quiz, the third game we did
not have one question we hadn’t previously had.
The idea of the game is good but the developers claim of how many questions they have in the database is laughable.
One game we played kept freezing every couple of questions after persevering for about 30 minutes we abandoned the game.
Until the question database is resolved we won’t be getting this back out the cupb
Game was good when working! However, once it glitched, we couldn’t get back into game. For some devices it worked and for others
it didn’t, therefore we had to end the game unfinished! Hoping problems like this can be solved quickly.
