Are You Dumber Than A Box of Rocks
Trivia game for ages 12 and up. It’s you against a box of rocks. Let’s see how that goes.

Let’s face it: we all love Monopoly but no one has time for the board game version because it’s endless. Monopoly Deal is the perfect way to play Monopoly: it’s a fast paced card game version. But don’t worry: you can still own Boardwalk and Park Place.
The game is wildly popular and we think it must have something to do with the title – kittens? exploding?
