What is your return policy?

We gladly accept any unwanted items within 30 days of delivery. Refunds will be credited back to the original method of payment. 

Do you ship internationally?

Yes! We ship to almost 200 countries worldwide. In addition to shipping fees, please note that orders outside of the U.S. may incur extra charges for customs, duties, VAT or GST that will be due upon delivery. You can send us an email with your country details at to estimate the total fees prior to purchasing. 

Can you play with less than 4 people?

You can play with 3 people but we recommend at least 4 players because it's more fun that way!  

Do you have to be good at trivia to enjoy this game?

Nope. The beauty of Brilliant Or BS? is that you don't have to get any of the questions right and still win. You can have a great BS detector or just be really convincing. 

How do you win?

Guessers earn 1 point every time they get a question right and earn 2 points every time they receive the Brilliant Card. If they say any of the answers in their explanation, they lose 1 point.

The Judge earns 1 point for each correct Brilliant prediction and 1 point for each correct BS prediction. Each wrong prediction will cost the Judge 1 point. 

Play rotates so that each player has the opportunity to be the Judge twice. The suggested game length is 30 to 60 minutes so a 4-player game is 8 total questions, a 5-player game is 10 questions and a 6-player game is 12 questions.
