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.
