Wits & Wagers Family: A Review

Have you seen this game? We have really been enjoying playing Wits & Wagers Family by North Star Games at our house! This game really does live up to its name: you have to use your wits, make educated guesses, "wager" on what guess you think is the correct one and it's perfect for a family.

I was very impressed when I read the instructions for this game. They were so simple to understand which made jumping into playing the game so much more enjoyable. You know, when you have to spend more time reading the instructions than playing the game it can be a little frustrating. Not so with this game! And my 6-year-old was able to have as much fun as the rest of us, even though technically this game says for ages 8 and up.

There are 300 family-friendly questions for your family to answer with their guesses and then you try to score points by deciding whose answer they think is the closest. That's it! It's a simple concept that is very fun and fast-paced, plus you're learning fun trivia along the way.

Our family loves playing this and I can't wait to take it to our extended family gatherings over Thanksgiving to play with them. I think it'll be even more fun in a larger group (did I mention that you can also play in teams for a large group?).

So if your family enjoys a great game, you'd like to have something new and fun for those holiday gatherings or you need a good Christmas gift idea, this would be perfect!

Head over to North Star Games and look up a retailer near you or simply buy online at Amazon. The prices vary according to the retailer, but Amazon currently has it for the great deal of $15.23.
