As an early reviewer I reviewed this game in exchange for my opinion. When I got this game I was excited that there were two different versions of play possible (online and offline). The game is very easy to unpack and set up and you can even have Google Assistant help explain how to play. Each color card is a different “mini game” which just means a different type of question to complete during the game. The game is made nicely and won't just fall apart. I love how the online version it is a constantly changing game depending on time and/or location of play. I also like that you can choose the length of play depending on where you pick the finish line to be on the board. I would highly recommend Google kNOW! It is a family friendly game. I have two young kids (7 and 5) that wanted to be involved. We just paired them up with an adult to play. They had fun helping with the answers and learning new things. Can't wait until our next game night to play!

Fun for everyone, even those who aren't game peopl
As an early reviewer I received this game in exchange for my review. This game was great! Even though it is a trivia game it did not feel like you needed to be super well versed in many areas to do well. I enjoy that when players get questions wrong other players still get to move forward, this keeps the game going at a nice pace. I also enjoy that you can determine how long you play for. I can't always get other to commit to a full game so asking them to play for 30 minutes is perfect. The mini games are fun, it's enjoyable with or without the google assistant, and setup is quick and simple. I would highly recommend this game.
Awesome trivia game!
Awesome trivia game! I used this game with middle school students. Any “digital assistant” can be used with this game, or you can play it “offline.” Since we aren't permitted to use digital assistants with students in my District, the “offline” version of this game was key! I'd love to see a spin-off game geared toward little kids... would definitely purchase that version, too!
As an early reviewer I reviewed this game in exchange for my opinion. I have only played the connected version of this game but it was so much fun! I love that it is a up to date knowledge game! I would recommend this game to so maybe friends and family!
A fun, never-out-of-date, trivia and party game.
As an early reviewer I received this game in exchange for my opinion. My family has played kNOW! several times and have enjoyed it quite a lot. The game uses Google Assistant to give up-to-date answers about a wide range of topics - many of which are really things you have to guess at such as "What the is current wind speed in Chicago?". We really liked this since it kept the trivia geeks at our table from trouncing on all of us which is what usually happens with these games. The Google Assistance app is an important part of the game. We used our Google Home speaker to serve as the quiz-master which allows everyone at the table to play at the same time rather than the usual roll/move/answer mechanic you'll find with a lot of trivia games. This allows for a high level of engagement throughout the game. The only reason I gave four stars is that we had some technical issues with one of the question topics and couldn't get the app to read the questions correctly. The game does have off-line options for when you don't have internet, but the online version of the game is a lot more fun. Finally, I'd recommend sticking to the recommended ages of 10+ for players of this game. There is a lot of writing in this game and younger kiddos may find themselves frustrated when they can't write down their answers fast enough for the quiz master's timer. My 12 and 13-year-old kiddos did just fine with it, but my 8-year-old acted more as a "helper".
We kNOW! this is a fun one!
As an early reviewer, I received this game in exchange for my honest opinion. My husband is a trivia guy and I am not good at remembering things so I was worried about playing this with him. Turns out some of the trivia questions are not things that not everyone knows or remember, so it levels the playing field for us. Don't shy away if you are like me and aren't great at typical trivia games. We really like the google component- it keeps things fresh and updated. My kids like being involved but at 2, 4, and 6 cannot play on their own. They still love it! We are looking forward to playing this with a big group this fall as it would make a great large group game.
A good innovation upon traditional trivia games!
As an early reviewer I received this game in exchange for my opinion. We had fun playing kNOW!, and when it was over I wanted to keep playing. Be aware that while the game is playable offline, to get the most out of the experience, you need a smart device with Google Assistant. The game consists of a series minigames. The assortment of rules is daunting at first, but once you pick it up, the game flows pretty easily without much referring back to the rules. The games vary in difficulty and challenge a good range of skills, including tests of general knowledge, memory, reflexes, estimation, verbal skills and Google-fu. The trivia questions are fairly easy so most older children (or more clever younger children) will stand a chance in a family game; and the music catogry is a great mix for young and older players. The Google Assistant integration aides with teaching the game, providing questions and testing answers in the various minigames. Also, the reliance of Google will also keep the games "answer key" up to date and localized to where you are, allowing the game to ask questions traditional trivia games can't. We found a few of the online supported minigames to really throw some curveballs or be a little wonky at times- mainly the "Up to Three" minigame. But there are always offline alternative questions, so the game provides for any of its own shortcomings well. I would recommend this game for any families with a decent grasp of how Google works, or as a party game for a more tame group of party-goers looking for a less off-the-wall sort of party game.
A trivia game using modern tech
As an early reviewer I received this game in exchange for my opinion. This game is fun for people who enjoy trivia. What makes this game different than other trivia games is there is a component that uses Google Assistant which changes answers depending on when and where you play The questions are sorted into mini games that range from guessing a number to tongue twisters. I found groups of three or more were the best to play with. I like how the length of gameplay is decided by you, not necessarily the game. One issue I had was that some gameplay was better on a Google Home device versus a Google Assistant on a phone. Also, this doesn't seem like a good game to play with the same group of friends multiple times, as it doesn't take long to go through most of the cards. Overall I would recommend this as a quick and fun party game to play with new people.
For a trivia game this is amazing. My family is not a huge trivia game fan (mostly because I always beat them) but there was enough variety that I only won by a little bit and the game was a lot more competative. The difficulty with this game is that it is obvious that the creators did not work directly with the Google assistant to develop the game. Any updates to the Google assistant may change some game play. One instance are the questions that ask you to list 3 things and then see if your three things match the first 3 things Google lists. Everytime we have played, google only lists 2 things. It was annoying to try and figure out what the third thing should be. Other than that, it is a very engaging game. It will find time in a regular rotation when we look for a trivia game. And it is fun to work with digital assistants. I have noticed other games are implementing digital assistants as well. It will be an interesting trend to follow. As an early reviewer, I received a free copy of this game in exchange for my review.
As an early reviewer I received this game in exchange for my opinion, I think the game works better without the Google assistant cards in some cases. The standard game itself is super fun, and the lack of a scoring system allows time to go by. Set a timer or dont, it will be fun all around.
