Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader on FacebookFinally, a new source of self-embarrassment on Facebook. (Posting incriminating photos of myself got kinda old.) Now, you can show just how unintelligent you are with Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader on Facebook.

The hit game show hosted by Jeff Foxworthy, thanks to Ludia--known for Who Wants to be a Millionaire on Facebook--and One Three Television, is now a Facebook game. This multiplayer version of the game that shows contestants just how dumb they really are (all in good fun, of course!), features simultaneous multiplayer gameplay.

Yes, that means you play the game with real people in real time--none of this friend visitation stuff here, folks. Players are sent into lobbies where the first rounds are played. (If you're thinking this looks a lot like its Millionaire game, that's because it is.)

Multiple choice questions are given, which are timed to increase the challenge. And Ludia took advantage of the real-time gameplay, providing bonuses to players who answer the questions the fastest. The developer also took advantage of that whole "social" thing, providing players who make friends with cheats for each round.

The top three contestants then move on to the Bonus 5th Grade Question. Of course, your play is limited by how many "Episodes" you have to play. These seem to refill over time, and leveling up provides you with bonus episodes. However, you might want to give this game a couple tries: It's one of the most polished and slickest Facebook game shows I've seen, and that alone is enough to bring me back.
