The long-awaited first screens of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader

Go get your "You Might Be a Redneck If" calendar and mark today as the day we finally saw the Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader game. And, if it's possible to be disappointed by Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader, that's how we feel.

The two screens we are shown are nothing but text and the game/show's logo. The text in the trivia question is presented as writing on a chalkboard, but uses a typewriter font. At least they didn't try to fake handwriting with Comic Sans or something.

Anyway, the game sounds about right: 3000 questions, and you can get help from five fake children. You also have access to the helpful "cheat" options found on the show. Really, the only difference is that it costs you money, instead of giving you the opportunity to win money.

1. I don't remember 5th graders being that stupid. It's dumbed down for adults!

2. The real answer isn't even a choice. The term they are looking for is "anthropomorphism".

Looks live the developers cannot answer "yes" to the question posed by the title of the game they are developing!!!

3. Good job rdaneel72, the answer is "personification".
