No Guessing! is a board game that first appeared in Arthur the Loser. Arthur bought it because of its very convincing T.V. advertisement. The game is played by rolling a die, moving a certain amount of spaces, and answering questions. The finish/winning point is a button in the middle with a large star on it, when pressed on; it makes a sound and the player raises their arms and yells, "I win!" On the front cover there's a picture of an owl either graduating high school or college.

This game varies in different questions, some difficult and some easy. A few examples would be:

  • A scientist combined one liter of H2O and nine ounces of soil, what compound did he make? (answer: mud)
  • A baseball is covered in what material? (answer: cowhide)
  • What is the largest city in France? (answer: Paris)
  • What is the third planet from the sun? (answer: Earth)
  • A four-legged barking canine. (answer: dog)
  • The bread around the hot dog is the... (answer: bun)
  • The site of King Solomon's Mines (answer (possibly): present-day southern Africa)
    • Sue Ellen answered "Zimbabwe", which could be correct
  • How do you spell Cat? (answer: C-A-T)
  • What line goes around the Earth? (answer: equator)
  • A Basketball is filled with.... (answer: air)
  • How many points is a basket in basketball worth? (answer: 2 points)
  • What is the capital of Norway? (answer: Oslo)

There was also a period in Arthur the Loser where they showed a montage of Arthur saying random phrases (which were likely the answers):

  • Icing the puck
  • A lobster
  • The Boston Red Sox
  • 1945 (possibly: "When did World War II end?")
  • Dirt

The questions that he was answering during that time are unknown.
