3rd Degree is a multiplayer party game. The object of the game is to earn points by correctly predicting how other people would behave in embarrassing situations. Each player takes turns being in the "hot seat." The game displays a narrated slideshow of an amusing but awkward situation, then asks how the player would respond. He enters his response secretly, and another player (the "challenger") tries to predict what it was. Situations are drawn from the categories Love, Career, Money, and Family. Correct guesses earn points, but there's an element of bluffing, too. The game is aimed at adults and teenagers.
