We have reinstated our Family Game Night, thanks to Wits & Wagers Family, by North Star Games. We are a game loving family! We had Family Game Night every Wednesdays for years, but would get side tracked and let life get in the way. So, once Wits & Wagers Family arrived, we decided it was time to return to our forgotten weekly event.
Wits & Wagers Family is a very simple, easy to use game that is packed with fun! You have trivia questions that are asked of all players.The answer is always a number. Each player has a small dry erase board they write their guess on. Then all the boards are placed in the middle, in numerical order, and each person 'wagers' on what answer they think is correct. To wager, each player uses two different sized Meeples (little wooden human(ish) characters). You have one large (worth 2 points) and one small (worth 1 point) Meeple to wager on either one or two answers. Whichever number is closest without going over wins that hand.
We have played it again and again in the few weeks we have had it. The questions are fun enough for the whole family, but the simplicity of the game is such that the kids can play by themselves with no adults. As a family, we highly recommend this game!! It states the game is for ages 8 and up, but I think younger children could definitely play with a bit of help!
This game retails for $19.99 and as of this morning was sold out through their website. You can check back to their website to see if it is available or check your local or online retailers. Other games by North Star Games include: Wits & Wagers, Say Anything and coming soon, Say Anything Family.
