The Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? Plug-and-Play game is is based off the game show of the same name. It was released in 2006 by Jakks Pacific.


Go to School (Main Game)

Your main goal is to correctly answer ten grade-school questions in a row, each with their own grade level and subject. You can answer them in any order. You also have the assistance of one 5th grade student of your choice who you can cheat off of a limited number of times to keep progressing. Each student is particularly good at a certain subject, and you must replace your current student with another every two questions. After correctly answering the tenth question, you are given the subject of the final one million dollar question. At this point, you can either choose to answer the question or drop out with $500,000, however once you choose to view the question, there’s no backing out, and you must answer it.

Bonus Games

Outside of the main game, there are also three bonus games you can play. Back to School involves you playing as a 5th grader and helping an AI player complete the game. Stay in School gives you ten mystery tiles that you can uncover one at a time to receive whatever cash value is hidden, however two of the tiles read “Flunked Out” and uncovering one of them will immediately end the game and cause you to lose all the money you had accrued. At any point in the game you can drop out and keep the money you gained. In Survival Games, you’re given 5 questions that you must answer under a strict time limit. At the end you are faced with 10 tiles similar to the ones in Stay in School. You are allowed to uncover an amount of tiles equal to the number of questions you correctly answered. This time there are no ”Flunked Out” tiles.
