Wits & Wagers Family is another positive addition to our game
cabinet. After playing, I now understand why Wits & Wagers
is the "most award winning party game" in history.
The game can be played with 3-10 players from ages 8 and up. To
play a complete game takes only 20-30 minutes, so you can fit it
in any time you'd like and play another game if you have more time.
Unlike most games, Wits & Wagers Family doesn't have a huge
learning curve. It only takes minutes to read the directions and
start to play. Furthermore, the questions are fun and guessing
is encouraged. Thus, you can learn about subjects you've never
studied without feeling ignorant. Knowing your opponents areas
of expertise potentially increases your score as you can make a
second and third guess based on your opponents answers.
To further validate this review, my son added, "Wits & Wagers
is an enjoyable family game. . . . One time playing, and I was
instantly hooked." My daughter wrote, "This game was very educational,
and I could see people playing it in school. You could even make
up some of your own question cards to turn a boring history lesson
into something fun! Overall: A+."
Not only did this game have our family laughing and cheering during
play, but it also had us discussing some of the surprising answers
to the questions days after we played.
