Our community relies on us to bring them a fun, social & thrilling experience. That’s why we invented Outsmarted. From our humble beginnings on Kickstarter in 2020, we’re now one of the world’s best-selling new board games, and a top 10 UK title. By combining the Outsmarted game board with a feature-rich mobile app, and an exciting selection of multimedia-driven quiz question content, we provide the Outsmarted community with a live TV quiz show-like experience in the comfort of their home!

Already in multiple international markets, Outsmarted will be sold in over 10 international markets throughout 2023, growing our user base to over two million players.
