Why We Like It:
Wits and Wagers, the game of guts and "guesstimates", is a fast-paced game that combines the most interesting elements of trivia with the excitement of gambling. Players can win by making educated guesses or by having the guts to bet on the high-payout answers of their friends. Whether it's the dramatic "all-in" question or the thrill of winning more chips, Wits and Wagers makes any gathering a party!
I received Wits & Wagers as a gift last year and have since given it to four different friends. People love this game. It's fast (everyone answers each question), fun (lots of interaction - you're betting on your friend's guesses) and easy to play (the rules sound complicated, but they are not). Besides a few date/year questions, it's pretty hard to embarrass yourself and the gambling levels the playing field. The way the game is structured (with a no limit final round), almost everyone is in it until the end too. Unlike some other trivia games, this one lends itself to mixed crowds of trivia buffs and children. Knowing lots of trivia really won't help you all that much, as smart bets are the key. I highly recommend this award winning game!
