Fun but overly commercial trivia competition ruined by ads.

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Forces you to think up answers on the fly. The first few questions are easy each time, then it gets tougher. 


Full-screen ads all over this game, as are mandatory visual ads. It can be hard to locate controls among the ads. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Fight List is a Family Feud-style trivia game where players list out possible answers based on a broad topic category. The game doesn't have any violence or sexuality, though there's always the potential that other players might use obscenities in their answers. But Fight List has a tremendous amount of advertising strewn throughout it, both big ads that hide the game's controls and mandatory video ads you have to sit through.

It’s addictive, but lacks components

It’s really fun—at first. Then you start seeing opponent answers and you realize there isn’t any vetting to the answers, or to user created content. Some obviou... Continue reading

I makes you think of words and ideas in order to win the game. Its a good brain game

What's it about?

In FIGHT LIST, players compete against other gamers to think of as many answers as possible to a category (such as things that come in the mail). Whoever wins three out of five rounds wins the game. Gamers who want to show off their trivia skills on social media do have the option of logging in with Facebook and playing against real-world friends or competing with strangers. But aside from the head-to-head gameplay, there's no chat between players. 

Is it any good?

It's frustrating when a game gets the basic concept so right, but ruins its own efforts. Fight List, despite its violent sounding name, is a family game at its core. But the amount of advertising in the game is so pervasive that it doesn't just border on intrusive, it dances merrily across the line. Kids will be so distracted by the giant fixed ads and mandatory video ads that they'll lose focus. Of course, there's a paid option to eliminate those, but not everyone will want to do that (and there are some user complaints that even after paying, they still see some ads). The friendly competitive nature of the game is nice, though, and the Family Feud-style gameplay, where you must come up with as many answers to a broad topic as you can, rewards creative thinking. If ads don't bother you, it's worth a look, but if you're easily distracted or impatient, Fight List might not be the game for you. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about marketing to kids. Do the ads on the screen of Fight List or the mandatory video ads make you want to download the app that's being shown? Do you realize how they're making you want that?

  • Talk about thinking outside of the box. Can you think of non-obvious answers to categories that would still work to solve the trivia questions?

  • Discuss the popularity of trivia games. Why do you think people like trivia games so much? Do you think it's because they like showing off what they know or how much they know?
