Fact or Crap

We got this fun game for Christmas this year. It is an interesting way to play a trivia game. I love trivia, but hate looking like an idiot when I don't know something that everyone else knows. This is a perfect solution for me.
In a nutshell... to play, one player is the reader and reads bits of trivia to the other players. Each player indicates, with a card, if they believe the trivia to be fact or crap. You get more points if you guess correctly and guess first. You also lose points if you guess incorrectly. It was a fun, fast paced game.

Sample trivia statements:
Tom Thumb's coffin was only 3 feet and 10 inches long. Fact or Crap?
Karlsbad, Bad Ragaz and Baden Baden are all family health spa locations. Fact or Crap?
Queen Elizabeth's great grandmother, the Duchess of Teck, was heiress to a toothbrush manufacturing fortune. Fact or Crap?
The Schwimmwagen was an amphibious model of the Volkswagen Beetle. Fact or Crap?
Leonardo da Vinci produced a blueprint for a machine gun? Fact or Crap?

All are fact, except for the Queen Elizabeth statement, which is crap!

So funny because on Christmas Eve, Wil and Jessica were asking me the name of that one game that they played at my house... that one time... you know - the Lying game?
It was this game. We loved it. I gave Wil and Jessica Cash Cab for Christmas (more trivia - which I love), I cannot wait to play that!
