Brilliant Or BS? is a 4-6 player party game for know-it-alls and big fat liars! Players read multiple choice trivia questions and earn points by predicting which of the other players guessed correctly before answers are revealed. Can you tell when your friends are BSing? Play this hilarious party game and find out.
There are six different categories of trivia including Sports, Entertainment, Food & Drink, Science & Technology, Geography and History.
Players take turns being the Judge by reading one yellow question card and the three multiple choice answers.
The other players have 10 seconds to respond by placing one of their A-B-C answer cards face down.
Starting with the player to the Judge’s left and going clockwise, each player tries to convince the Judge that they got the question right without saying the answer. They must come up with a convincing explanation as to how or why they know the correct answer...even if they don’t.
After everyone pleads their case, the Judge grabs the two black cards and gives the Brilliant card to the person they think got the question right and the BS card to the person they think got it wrong.
The player that receives the Brilliant card automatically earns 2 points and the player who receives the BS card earns 0 points.
The Judge announces the correct answer (highlighted in bold) before asking the other players to reveal their cards. The players who did NOT receive a Brilliant or BS card go first, followed by the player who received the BS card. The person who received the Brilliant card reveals their answer last. Each player that gets the question right earns 1 point.
The Judge receives 1 point for each correct Brilliant prediction and 1 point for each correct BS prediction. But beware. For each wrong prediction, the Judge loses 1 point.
Play continues until each person has had the chance to be the Judge the same number of times. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins. (Suggested length of game play is 1 hour.)
