TOS Review: Wits and Wagers Family Game

This year has been an awesome year of review for the crew!  Our family is a game family and we love to play and find new games! 

Wits and Wagers Family game is designed by the the guys over at Northstar Games.  It is a fun trivia type game that includes over 300 family friendly and fun questions such as, "How many preschoolers still think George Washington is President?".

As soon as our game arrived, we opened it and began play within minutes.

Included with the game are dry erase boards, dry erase markers, a score board, small meeples, large meeples, and the question cards.

First, you read the question card.  Every player then writes their guess on their board.  All questions will have number answers.  Then all answers are displayed.  If you are sure your answer is correct, you can add to your score by placing the small and large meeples on it. If you think another person may have guessed the closer answer, you can still earn points by placing the small and large meeples on their answer instead.  The person closest to the number without going over wins that round and then you tally the points on the score board.  You get 1 point for having the closest correct answer without going over, 1 point if your small meeple is on the closest correct answer, and 2 points if your large meeple is on the closest correct answer.  The person to get 15 points first wins the game!

We had a blast playing this game and even took it with us to grandma's house that night because we knew she would love to play too!  Wits and Wagers Family is available at local retail stores.  To find one near you go here.  It is also available at Amazon.  Prices will vary but at the time of this post they ranged from $15 to $30.  

Would our family purchase this game?  YES!  We love the ease of the game set up, the fun it is to play, and the quality of the game pieces.  

Don't forget to check out what my fellow crewmates thought of Wits and Wagers Family.
