Name a popular TV series of the 70's... name a handyman's tool... name a stinky cheese... Each category has several correct answers. Can you guess them all? Well, you don't need to... a couple good answers is all you'll need.
Each round, one players selects a random category card. The other players try to come up with all the answers on the card. If your answer is wrong, you have to take a Penalty... but if you're correct...YOU GET TO WEAR THE SMARTYPANTS! WOOHOO! (That's right.. the game comes with a snazzy little pair of Smartypants! A new height in fashion!)
It's all about coming in last. The last correct player gets the Pants, the last player 'wearing' the Pants gets the bonus and...LAST PLACE WINS!

GREAT! They MUST have had ME in mind for THIS game! Since I'm the resident Know-it-all, it'll behoove me to PROVE IT once and for ALL, to bear witness to MY Brillance! One of the few games where Advancing is BAD, you've got to provide EACH and EVERY correct answer that is required from the Card chosen for any particular subject. Once someone has reached the end of the Gameboard, then the Player that has moved the LEAST is the WINNER & gets the coveted "Smarty-Pants" to SHOW it! They're bound to come up with add-ons for this since who WOULDN'T want to accessorize their ensemble with the likes of say, the "Thinking CAP", or "the SHOES of CLUES", or" the STOCKINGS of MOCKINGS", or "the SHORTS o
