Based on the Fox game show hosted by Jeff Foxworthy, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? challenges you to answer more than 3,000 multiple-choice questions from a list of 28 school subjects. Featured topics include art, measurements, spelling, literature, science, algebra, and more. As in the television program, the game is set in a classroom of five children with the goal of answering all 11 questions for a million-dollar prize. After a question is revealed, you can answer it directly, earning a varying amount of cash with each correct response, or rely on one of three single-use cheats: peek, copy, or save.
"Peek" reveals what a child wrote down in secret, allowing you an opportunity to accept or reject it as your final answer. "Copy" forces you to go with a classmate's answer without seeing it beforehand, while "save" automatically skips an incorrect answer as long as a classmate partner answers it correctly. The final million-dollar question must be answered without any help, however. Miss it and you'll retire with the sobering knowledge that you were not smarter than a grade-schooler. Comedian Jeff Foxworthy will also comment on your progress after each question. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
