THQ Nordic Asks ‘Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?’ With New Game


The popular quiz show Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? is returning to consoles and PC later this year. Developed by Massive Miniteam and published by THQ Nordic through HandyGames, the game features 6,800 questions all based on 24 different subjects one might have studied back in grade school.

Fans of the show can gather up to eight competitors for couch co-op multiplayer, testing their mettle against a set of virtual kids just like in the original Fox broadcast and the syndicated follow-up. The game features fully voiced cartoon-style characters reading out questions and answers throughout each session, a feature shown prominently throughout the game’s first trailer.

Original host Jeff Foxworthy is nowhere to be seen in this 2022 revival of Fifth Grader, which is a change from the long-delisted Xbox Live Arcade version of the game show from 2008. However, most of the elements that made the show popular return here, offering a game show video game in an era where interactive quiz shows are often the realm of Jackbox Games rather than more traditional TV adaptions.

Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? is set to hit the yard later this year across a ton of platforms, with releases on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and all three major PC storefronts. If you play video games at all, you’ll likely be able to access and enjoy this quiz experience. If you don’t, you might just be a redneck.
