Every kid loves Brain Quest, the game where it's O.K. to be smart. This award-winning board game gives kids a chance to win by recalling things they have learned in school. This fast-paced game features 1,500 questions about everyday school subjects. It features level-specific questions for kids in grades 1 - 6, making it fun and challenging for children of different ages and abilities to play together. Players can win extra turns by answering questions from a higher grade level. Each of the 256 cards contains questions and answers in categories such as math, science, social studies, English, and grab bag (cultural literacy). Brain Quest's special folded cards prevent even the card holder from seeing the answer, so everybody gets to guess. The player who answers the most questions correctly and moves all the way around the schoolyard game board is the winner. The game actually makes learning fun. The Brain Quest Game is designed for 2 - 4 players in grades 1 - 6. Brain Quest is the winner of a Teacher's Choice Award and a National Parenting Publication Award. University Games offers you and your family original ways to have fun. Creative gameplay and quality components are our standard. We know that people want to play right away, so our games are easy to learn. Our games keep all players involved, even when it’s not their turn. The games combine luck and skill and present a new challenge each time you play.
"Was Claude Monet a painter, a jazz musician, or an Italian dictator?" "Name four of the seven colors in the spectrum." Questions like these are sure to get your child's mental gears meshing while playing the Brain Quest Game for grades one to six. The object is to be the first player to finish a race around the game board, designed to mimic a school playground, by correctly answering questions from the Brain Quest cards. Each of the 256 cards contains questions and answers in categories such as math, science, social studies, English, and grab bag (a euphemism for cultural literacy). Brain Quest's folded cards prevent the I-saw-the-answer-on-the-back problem while allowing even the player asking the question to guess the answer.
A great resource for classroom teachers, homeschoolers, and anyone who has enjoyed E.D. Hirsch's books on education (A Dictionary of Cultural Literacy), the Brain Quest Game is a non-threatening yardstick for measuring learning areas that might need attention. It's also the perfect showcase for helping children to display--and feel great about--how much they already know. Younger kids will enjoy the Brain Quest Game for preschool and kindergarten. Brain Quest is for two to four players. --Julie UbbenSee all Product description

Here are some examples of easy and tough questions for the grades we played:
Tough Question - "How many weeks in a calendar year?" My 5yo had no idea (actually my 8 year old wasn't sure either).
Easy Question - "What shape is a bicycle wheel?"
Tough Question - Is Central America part of North or South America?
Easy Question - Jeff bought a brownie for 20 cents and a cookie for 10 cents. How much did he spend?
Tough Question - Divide the word "geranium" into syllables. (The correct answer is ge-ra-ni-um. I would have answered ger a ni um.)
Easy Question - What is the product of 67x100?
We all had fun and the kids wanted to play it again today! I highly recommend it.
The INSTANT the player being asked the question hesitates, hands go up all around them with kids DYING to show-off their knowledge.
We played by the rules given (except for an adult reading all cards), but I could see how to modify the rules to make it possible to steal the question (think Family Feud) and to add the risk of moving back a space if they player attempting to steal misses.
Loved the way the kids frequently asked for the question for the next grade up (healthy egos here) and frequently pulled it off.
Add to that the parents sitting around (allegedly watching golf)who constantly raised THEIR hand or whispered the answer to each other...or (in the case none of the kids could answer) RACED to shout out the answer!!!
In the end the 7 year old won...pretty cool because she was used to losing against the older kids when they played board games...
Two thumbs up for this one....it was a HUGE hit!
(Special note: Two of the children that played are struggling in school, but they loved playing this game...that's the highest phrase anyone could bestow.)
