Players must guess the least obvious answers from a series of surveyed questions. For example, everybody knows that Renée Zellweger starred in the Bridget Jones movies but few people would know she was also in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel.
All the questions in Pointless have previously been asked to a panel of 100 people, who had 100 seconds to give as many correct answers as possible.
The object of the game is to score the least number of points by giving a correct answer that you think fewest of the 100 people would have given. The best possible answer is one that none of the panel gave, earning you a Pointless answer and scoring zero points.
The board game launched September 2010 and a new travel version comes out in 2012.
