"It freakin' sucks!" – Jonathan Ikegana

What are you waiting for, Christmas?

Easy to learn. Hard to win.

It's simple to Wise Up! Players take a card, in turn, and ask the Question to the player to his/her left. If that player answers correctly, they keep the card. If not, the player to his/her left tries to answer it. Play continues clockwise.

There are 150 thought-provoking Questions, like: What is the circumference of a golf ball? Name a mammal that lays eggs. Where is the zygomatic arch? What are the eight Ivy League schools?

But wait a sec!

Wise Up! also has 50 devilish Challenges, such as: Throw this card on the floor and pick it up without using your hands. Or how about: Swap shirts with the player to your left. Anyone for a "Thumb War?" 

As with the Question cards, the Challenge cards are presented to the player to the card captain's left, who then tries to meet and/or complete the challenge. If successful, he/she keeps the card. If not, the player to his/her left gets a shot at it.

For a Group Challenge, the best player, as judged by the card captain (the player presenting the Challenge), gets the card. The player with the most cards at the end wins.

Don't believe us.

Seriously, put on your smarty party pants and bring it on!
