How to play Brilliant or BS?

1. The Judge

Each round a rotating Judge reads a multiple choice trivia question from one of the 6 trivia categories. The remaining players answer secretly using their ABC response cards.

2. The Guessers

Without saying the answers, the remaining players take turns trying to convince the Judge that they answered correctly. They must explain how or why they know the answer...even if they're completely clueless! The other players can trash talk in an attempt to cast doubt on each other.

3. The Interrogation

The Judge interrogates the other players to try to figure out who actually knows the answer and who's only pretending to know. The Brilliant Card goes to one player the Judge believes chose the correct answer while the BS Card goes to one player they believe chose the wrong answer.

4. The Big Reveal

The player who receives the Brilliant Card earns 2 points for convincing the Judge even if they answered incorrectly. All guessers earn 1 point for correct answers. After everyone reveals their answers, the Judge earns 1 point for each correct prediction and loses 1 point for each wrong prediction.

My family and I have found our new love in Brilliant or BS! Hours of fun in one little box! We’re now looking forward to the expansion packs! I’m telling everyone I know to get this game

Love Love Love

I was pleasantly surprised by this game. We had so much fun playing it at our Couples night. Things got a bit interesting, but we had an absolute blast. Instructions were easy and we even put our own twist on the game. If you haven’t already make sure to get this game.


Purchased this for my adult son's birthday. He and his friends played at his birthday celebration. He loved it!

Old School Fun!

We had occasion to visit a childhood friend of mine and I had the game with me. Just the title alone was enough to make the guys want to try it! We had a ball! They were trying to outdo each other with the BS stories, it was hilarious!


Is Brilliant or BS? safe to play with my family?

Yes. Brilliant or BS? is clean, family-friendly fun. We recommend ages 14+ due to the level of difficulty. However, the NSFW expansion pack is not family-friendly and will definitely make you blush. That deck is rated 18+ due to the mature content. 

Where can I read the official game rules/instructions for Brilliant or BS?

Instructions are included in each core game box and you can also download them here.

How do I get printable ABC cards and Brilliant and BS Cards?

Click to download. You'll need to print 1 set of ABC cards per player, 1 Brilliant Card and 1 BS Card.

How do I get a Brilliant or BS? scorecard/cheat sheet?

Example scorecards are included in each core game and you can click HERE to download a printable copy. Or check out our Excel scorecard that does the math for you! (Click HERE then go to your Download folder)

Do you ship internationally?

We're currently only shipping to the USA.

Can you play Brilliant or BS? 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 Brilliant or BS?

Nope. The beauty of Brilliant or BS? is that you don't have to get any of the questions right to earn points. You can win the game by being the most convincing or catching other people in their lies.
