In Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?: Make the Grade, contestants of all ages have the chance to prove their smarts in a game where every question is based on grade school curriculum and the answers are “elementary.” Contestants will choose their partner from five all new brainy 5th graders and test their skills in over 23 subjects while earning coveted gold stars on the way to the virtual Million Dollar Question. Throughout the game, just as on the television show, Jeff Foxworthy encourages and teases the contestants with his trademark brand of humor.

Four exciting game modes will put contestants’ skills to the test: contestants can go head-to-head against friends in the Academic Academy Mode or see who can answer questions the quickest in the fast-paced Flashcards Mode. Spelling Bee Mode challenges contestants to quickly identify misspelled words, while the Homeroom Mode gives contestants the opportunity to play just like they do on the actual show. The NDS version of the game boasts 3,000 new questions and gives players the opportunity to partner with 5 unlockable bonus classmates. A brand new multi-player mode allows contestants to play head to head against their friends, or pass and play to see who’s the smartest.
