Wits & Wagers - Family

Wits & Wagers - Family by Northstar Games

Here's their description:

"Wits & Wagers Family simplifies the rules and scoring system of the popular Wits & Wagers. Now families and kids can get into the Wits & Wagers action! First, every player writes down a guess to a fun question. Then players try to score points by choosing which guess is closest to the right answer without going over. That is it!

The game features 300 new family-friendly questions. And even better than that, Wits & Wagers Family includes Meeples-- fun, cute, human shaped wooden pieces that the players use to select which answers they think are correct. Meeples have been a hallmark in European style strategy games for years, but this is the first time they have made an appearance in a party game.

So check out Wits & Wagers Family, the game that combines laughter and learning in a way that all ages can enjoy together!

A Family Edition of the Most Award-Winning Party Game in History!"

The Bentz Testing Laboratory LOVED this one, in fact - once the tester's got their hands on it - I had to search to find it again!

The "head" tester reports that even the 5 year old "mini tester" can play this one.  That's a big hit - when a game can interest the whole range from 5-14 year olds!

Here's the detailed description of how to play - directly from my testers:

The players read a question, everyone writes down the number value (from the questions) on their personal dry-erase board and places it facedown.  Each player reveals their answers - if two people have the same answer, the last one to put it down has to rechoose.  Next, everyone places their Meeples on the board of the person that you think has the correct answer (or your own if you know you're "right").  This is where it gets fun - how well do you know the people you're playing with?  Finally, the answer is revealed and the answer with the most Meeples that's closet without going over or the "correct" answer gets a point.   First person to 15 points - wins the game.

We love board games, especially the ones that make you think!  I would highly recommend you check out Northstar Games - we have become HUGE fans of this company.   We received Say Anything Family as well see what we thought here. These are well constructed, high interest games for the entire family.

I received a complimentary game in exchange for my honest opinion as part of the TOS Review Crew.
