NAQ is pronounced the same way as the word “Knack”. Knack is a special talent or ability. Do you have the Knack, to do the NAQ? Doing the NAQ is when a player asks a question in which half the players answer correctly and half answer incorrectly. If there are an odd number of players answering, always round up to determine half. For example, if 5 players were answering, 3 players would be considered half. NAQ is also known as the game with “No Answers or Questions” pre-written or outdated.
Do the NAQ as many times as possible and answer as many questions as possible. Each player in the game will create their own questions and also answer questions that other players have created. First player to the finish is the WINNER!
Players must ask a question that is considered a general knowledge question. We have included Subject Cards in the game to help players think of questions. No personal questions are allowed.
The following types of questions are also not allowed: Multiple Choice, True/False, 50/50, Opinions, Foreign Word Translations, Math, Spelling and Grammar. For more details, click here to download the NAQ Instructions.
If you would like to know the answers to the above questions, they are located near the bottom of the home page on this site.

Yes! Use a Speakerphone – If you have a friend or family member that lives outside of your area, they can join in on the fun. We recommend that only one player participate through a speakerphone. We suggest that the speakerphone player always read aloud their answer first, once all answers have been submitted.
