Playing mind games is wicked fun!
But you can snatch it back if an "S" is flipped over and you yell out "SMART." Damn. Just remember that all words are in play at all times, so you better be able to think fast on your feet. Show zero mental mercy – steal away!
No board. No complicated rules. No monkeying around – just wicked/smart cheap thrills for the holidays – guaranteed to ruin any family gathering.
Wise Up! – The Wicked/Smart Party Card Game – is the follow-up to our best-selling word game One Up! We've designed it with the same (un)healthy mix of fun, flippancy, smarts, and heartache – it's the perfect cure for cabin fever.
This is a grown-up card game that asks tons of thought-provoking questions that'll give everyone a lesson in humility, history, sports, science, literature and geography. And wit.
Here's a sample "hard" question for all you smart alecks out there: Everyone knows the First and Second Amendments – what's the Third?
But there are also a bunch of "challenge" cards that throw hilarious physical and mental wrenches into the works: Indian Arm Wrestling, A Staring Contest, and what about a round of Truth or Dare? Or double dare?
The player with the most cards at the end wins.
"Show us a good loser and we'll show you a real loser."
The mechanics of Oneupmanship are simple: each player starts out with $5,000, and the first one to reach $100,000 by either investing in the stock market, buying real estate, purchasing "trophies" or betting against the other players wins.
But wait: we added another dimension that takes the game off the board and into the realm of meta-game: "$ Cards" are personal, physical and mental challenges that are really about proving what you are made of as a human being. And they're meant to hurt.
Seriously, we hope you have as much fun playing Oneupmanship as we did making it – guaranteed to turn your whole family and all your friends into "greedy, self-serving punks."
