Are You Up for Smart Ass?

If you’re looking for board game fun to enjoy with family and friends during the holidays, then look no further than Smart Ass.

Smart Ass is a trivia game filled with hysterics, ridiculousness, and a downright good ol’ time!

How to Play:

Find 2 to 8 players (preferably ages 12 and up) to set up Smart Ass shop. The game comes equipped with 8 “Smart Ass” playing pieces, 490 questions, 1 jumbo category die, and 1 jumbo movement die and instructions.

Each Who, What and Where am I? card contains 10 clues. A clue is then read and everyone playing rushes to yell out the correct answer in hopes to say it first. So if you think you know it, shout it out loud!

If, however, you get the answer wrong, you’re out of the round. Smart Ass doesn’t so much test your knowledge as it tests how quick on your feet you can be.

How to Win:

The goal of the game is to reach the target in the center of the board.

What to Expect from Smart Ass and Why You Should Play:

Smart Ass is filled with a good, clean sense of humor, so despite the name, it’s appropriate for children of all ages.

Over 2 million copies have been sold and its 900+ reviews have averaged a rating of 4.5 stars.

So…you guys know what time it is, it’s time for Smart Ass.

Andrew gets to keep his suede shoes in mint condition while Chris puts a lid on it

It seemed to be that no matter what, Chris found himself spilling his drink and on top of every office electronic.

Nothing was solving Chris’ drinking problem…until there came a drinking solution.

RevoMax has now fully treated Chris’ liquid casualties and his contents now remain contained (no matter how often he still drops his cup).

And of course, Andrew’s shoes stay dry and oh-so stylish.

Instagram Drops New Features and Kills One

A couple of weeks ago Instagram released a surprising new feature called Stories, which allows you to share all the moments throughout your day. Similar to rival app Snapchat, stories consists of mini video clips or pictures stay up for 24 hours, appearing as a mini slideshow or video series. Facebook, Instagram’s parent company, attempted to purchase Snapchat a couple of years ago. They couldn’t buy the app, but that doesn’t mean that they couldn’t integrate their ideas in their app.

But Instagram released a feature that Snapchat doesn’t have: zooming. This gives the users the ability to zoom in on other users’ photos and videos by pinching the post. Unfortunately, this feature is only available for iPhone users, but they say it will be released soon on Android.

The new zoom feature allows marketers to get even more creative with content on Instagram. Instead of watching a video in one perspective, users can now zoom around and choose a certain focus to view.

The problem with this new feature is that Instagram images content can look grainy if you zoom in too much. But this isn’t stopping users from using this new feature—there’s even a trending hashtag about Instagram’s latest addition.

These features are here to stay, but the photo map feature is on its way out. This classic feature allowed you to see a map of where a users’ photos were taken (if you allowed it). Instagram said in a statement to Mashable, “Photo Map was not widely used, so we’ve decided to remove the feature and focus on other priorities.”

So what are your thoughts? Are you sad to see the Photo-Map feature go? Or are you happy that you can zoom? Tweet us your thoughts @NewsWatchTV.
