TOS Review: North Star Games Wits & Wagers Family

This is a product, and a company, I had never heard of before. It was exciting to get something that is basically "just for fun" to review. When I learned we would be receiving Wits & Wagers Family to use and review, I began eagerly watching for it to come in the mail!

Wits & Wagers Family is a fun game for up to five players or teams, consisting of cards with trivia questions on one side, and the answers on the other. The answer for each question is a number.

There are small dry-erase boards on which each player writes his/her answer. Then the cards are placed in order from smallest to highest number. After that, each player places their two "meeples" on the card/s with the answer they think is the closest to correct, without going over the correct answer.

After that, the correct answer is read, and then the tally marks are recorded on the scorecard, which is also dry-erase. Each game goes rather quickly.....except when the 8 year old takes "forever" trying to decide what number he is going to mark on his board! ;)

You can find Wits and Wagers Family at Target, for $17.99. It will make a great Christmas gift for any family on your shopping list.

North Star Games has designed other games, as well: Say Anything; and Wits & Wagers, with an extension pack.

We have had several sessions of playing Wits & Wagers Family, with even hubby joining us in several rounds. The consensus is, from the children anyway, that it's fun! We definitely plan to take it with us in a week or so, when we spend Christmas with my family, to introduce them to this fun game.

If you are still looking for a fun family Christmas gift, for your family, or for someone else, we highly recommend Wits & Wagers Family! We give it at least 5 thumbs up!! ;)
