What Our Customers Are Saying

This isn't your average trivia game, there's a whole other level to it! I had a game night and we were going to play multiple games but we ended up playing Brilliant or BS all night. So many laughs! LOVE it!

– Jay

I was first introduced to playing Brilliant or BS at a bridal shower. I had the most fun coming up with a BS reason as to why I knew the answers when I truly didn't know at all! The judges fell for it every time :) It is a game full of laughs and good times. It is definitely a crowd pleaser. A must have for game nights and family gatherings.

Watch the JK Party crew play a quick round.


Each round a rotating Judge reads a trivia question and the three multiple choice answers.

There are 6 categories including Entertainment, Food & Drink, Geography, History, Science & Tech, and Sports.

Players answer by placing their ABC response cards face down and take turns trying to convince the Judge that they got the question right.

Without saying any of the multiple choice options, they explain how or why they know the correct answer. If they don't know it, they'll have to fake it!

The Judge gives the Brilliant Card to the person they think got the question right and the BS Card to the person they think got it wrong. 

The player who receives the Brilliant Card automatically earns 2 points. 

The moment of truth...everyone reveals their answers and each player that got the question right earns 1 point. 

The Judge also earns 1 point for each correct prediction and loses 1 point for each wrong prediction.

The player to the Judge's left picks a trivia question from the top of the pile to kick off the next round.

Rinse, lather and repeat. The person with the most points at the end of the game wins!


Brilliant Or BS? was created by TV challenge producer Kimelia Weathers Smith, a Washington D.C. native who turned her joy for hosting game nights for her friends into a career developing challenges for reality competition shows. Brilliant Or BS? was born out of her love of bluffing games and her passion for bringing people together through conversation. With the support of nearly 200 backers, the Kickstarter campaign successfully raised over $10,000 to fund the game's first print order. When Kimelia isn't working on Brilliant Or BS?, she is busy developing and producing challenges for reality competition shows for some of your favorite networks including FOX, ABC, Netflix and Freeform.
