CSP SmartPlay is a fun, interactive feature that allows you to play along with the show, every Sunday, in real time. The best part? It’s super easy and you don't need to download a separate app.  

Brand new this year, you can play along with unique challenges (designed exclusively for the viewer at home!) during commercial breaks. Plus, you'll have the chance to win prizes!

Challenges are timed with the show and you can play along with viewers across Canada! All you need is a computer, tablet or mobile device. Simply come back to the Canada's Smartest Person website or visit us on Facebook to play while you watch the show on Sunday nights. 

To play CSP SmartPlay, visit us on Sundays at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT) and click the Play Now button.
