Think you’re a Smart Ass? Play the Smart Ass board game and really prove to your family and friends that you really are.
Unlike other trivia games, this one encourages you to yell out answers as another player reads a series of clues. No more boring waiting until it’s your turn.
This is such a fun game to play starting with the board which includes amusing ass references which are penalty (Dumb Ass and Kick Ass) and extra question (Hard Ass) spaces.
There’s also donkey themed playing pieces so you can choose what colour donkey you want to be in the game. You get extra points if you bray like an ass. Okay I totally made that up but it’s still fun to do,
Players get to throw the dice to choose a category.
- Who Am I? This category makes you guess who a person is
- Where am I? This category makes you guess a country or geographic landmark
- What am I? This category makes you guess a thing
- Hard Ass! This category includes general trivia questions.
There’s also expansion packs available such as 90s Nostalgia and Geek Chic if you want to add it to the game.
Want an example of a question? Yell out the answer when you’ve figured it out. “I am beautiful. My ocean host thinks I am irritating. I am an old-fashioned female name. I am usually round or roundish. Humans often wear me around their necks. I can be natural or cultured. Oysters are typically important to my growth. What am I, with the initial P?” Guess pearl? You’re right.
The criteria on the game states that it’s for kids aged 12 and over but we found some of the questions could be answered by kids 9 and up. It would be great to see a family version of Smart Ass.

In 2012, Reena founded Newy with Kids to share information about family-friendly Newcastle. Originally from Canada, she had no idea about what to do with her toddler and after searching unsuccessfully for a local family guide, decided to start her own. Since that time, both the toddler and Newy with Kids have grown keeping Reena busy. If you see her out and about, say hi.
