Think you’re good at telling fact from common misconception? Then this might be the game for you! You’ll need to be careful to see through the falsities, and the tricks laid out by your opponents, to discover the cold had facts. Let’s check it out!
What Is It?
Party Game / Teams – Players split into 2 equal teams. An odd number is okay though, it shouldn’t create a huge advantage or disadvantage
Trivia – While it’s not straight “question/answer” trivia, it requires some random knowledge so that players have a better chance of knowing what is fact and what is a misconception. Each round, 1 team will guess how many cards in the center are facts, while the other team must just guess ‘higher,’ or ‘lower’ (‘same’ is not an option). Whichever team is correct gets a point. Most points at the end of the game wins!
Who Is It For?
- 2 or More Players – It’s definitely more fun with more players, so you have others to bounce ideas off of for what’s a fact or not, but it is fine with 2 as well as just a 1 v 1 game
- Ages 21 and Up – There’s nothing inherently ‘adult’ about the cards, but because of the Bud Light Seltzer branding, I’d say just for adults. I think most of the facts wouldn’t be known by younger players anyway
- Fans of light party games/trivia type games
- Players who have a lot of random knowledge
- Easy set-up / clean-up
- Colorful cards
- Small rule set; rules well-written and clear
- Rounds play quickly
- Good variety of topics on the cards (some food, history, pop culture, et cetera)
- The misconceptions have a little blurb on the back of the card to give players more information, which I think is neat
- You can learn a bunch of fun facts with this game!
- Replay Value – The game has 150 cards, which is a fair amount, but after the first few plays, you’ll start to see the same cards, so if you have a good memory, and know which ones are facts, it kind of takes a lot out of the game experience. But, if you only play the game on occasion, you won’t see the problem as much
- Card quality isn’t amazing; cards often stick together
- I wish the fact cards also had a little blurb on the back with more info
- I wish some of the cards had a little bit of simple art on them
- I thought it would have been cool if the different colored cards stood for different categories, but it appeared to just be random
I thought this game was neat. It had a unique feel to it that was a variation on your typical trivia, and I thought it was fun to reveal the cards and learn what was a fact versus a misconception. I was familiar with a ton of the statements on the cards, and even I was surprised to learn which of them were facts versus misconceptions.
My biggest issue with it is that I didn’t feel like it would stand up to the test of time. Once players familiarize themselves with the cards, it takes a lot of the guesswork out of the game, which is part of the fun. However, if it’s a game you only pull out every so often, for a night of drinks and laughs, then it might be perfect for you!
For me, it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t my favorite game either, so I don’t think I’ll be pulling it out a ton.
