Product Description

Product Description

Think you know a little about a lot? Put your mind to the test with Wit's End, a family-style board game for 2–6 players. Packed with riddles and brain teasers on history, popular culture, geography, arts and more, the game features 1600 questions and 4 unique categories: Sequence, Wild Card, Teaser and Odd 1 Out. Challenging, entertaining and delightfully fast-paced, Wit's End is designed for players 12 yr. of age and older. Made in USA.

Amazon.com

The game is called Wit's End, which is just where you might find yourself when playing this lively contest of lateral, literal, and level-lifting thinking. Players try to reach the summit of the board by answering questions in four categories such as Odd 1 Out, Teaser, Sequence, or the ever-troubling Wild Card--a nerve-jangling catchall for trivia, slang, quotations, and time-limited queries. Wit's End is tougher than most trivia-based games, and it's deceptive, too. Players needn't answer all categories to win, so how tough can it be to move up the board? Well, for every "Arrange Jaws, The Sting, and Star Wars by release date" there's a "Borneo is to 3, as Hispanola is to: 1, 2, 3, or 4?" (And it's got nothing to do with number of syllables--we peeked.) If you can name four European countries starting with S (while an opponent counts to 30), can you do as well with "millimeter is to centimeter, as chain is to: link, decimeter, furlong, or ounce"? There's also an optional "Sorry!" feature that allows you to bounce an opponent down a level for correct answers to certain questions. Smart and sophisticated, with a soupçon of luck, Wit's End is a game to challenge both great wits and those only halfway there. --Tony Mason

WIT'S END, WIT'S END, WIT'S END. I have been waiting for a game like this. I love trivia and fact based games, but feel there has been a great void in that area since the hey day of Trivial Pursuit. The game is not at all like Trivial Pursuit - It is better! Instead of straight questions, Wit's End has mind teasing categories. These categories use all types of facts - historical, geographical, biological, political or on a more popular level - sports, movies, famous people, etc. Also, there is an added twist - you can periodically promote or demote opponents or yourself, depending on if you provide the right (or wrong) answer. We, of course, kept demoting the person closest to the finish square. I definitely recommend WIT'S END - playing it is a great way to socialize with your friends and family and have great fun doing it.

This belongs in your game collection. You'll be playing it forever and it's fun. There's a nice touch: you combine your knowledge of facts and your reasoning capabilities (really putting you at your `Wit's End' on occasion). There is more than enough food for thought in the first three general categories - called Teasers, Odd1Out and Sequence (the names fit perfectly) - and I think I counted 12 (maybe 13) different `brain riddle' types in the fourth general category - Wild Card. The researchers must have been working overtime to make the questions both interesting and challenging, and I appreciate the chance to see `how and why' the answer was derived by looking at the accompanying explanations on the cards. This is definitely for those of us who truly like to think once in a while.

I am a 30 year old professional who bought this game for a dinner party. Wit's End stole the show!!! If you like bright, competitive people and are tired of run-of-the-mill trivia, try this game. The questions are challenging, but you do have multiple choice answers - at least the information is in front of you - so no one should feel like an idiot for not having a reply. The range of material is phenomenal! Full marks, people!!!

The thing I like most about this game is that the questions are clever. Instead of insulting your intelligence (the problem with far too many games of this kind), the questions give your brain a real workout. It isn't just that they are well chosen, but the options given as possible answers are deceptive - so you really do have to think your answer through. I also like the extra suspense built into the game - you don't know until you flip over the card to check your answer whether you'll be booby-trapped by one of those little notes telling you to `move up a level' or `send an opponent down a level'. So a word of caution - be nice to other players, and certainly don't be smug about any success you might be having, or you'll find everyone ganging up on you in no time...

I played Wit's End at a friend's game night. It was a great hit and I had to have a copy for my house. The thing I love about this game is that unlike other trivia/knowledge-based game out there, this game does not ask dumb or out of touch questions. In addition, the questions are not just straight questions, but brain teasers. You either compare terms, put things in order or pick the one that does not belong. So it is really easy to reason things out and pick one of the choices. That this game gives you choices makes it so much less frustrating to play than games that make you pull an answer out of thin air -- you have choices put in front of you! So, how hard can it be? Don't be fooled -- it is a very challenging game. But that is what makes it so much fun. One suggestion...though...we had misread the instructions and assumed that when a question was answered correctly you moved up a level on the board. This, we learned was incorrect. You need to answer a question correctly on a square which allows you to move up on the board. But be careful...If you answer a question incorrectly -- you might just as easily demote yourself a level on the board. This game is a must for any game lover's collection. It is definitely an excellent way to spend quality time with friends and family! I highly recommend it.

I recently played this game with some friends and we had a terrific time. It's really challenging but the best part is that the answers are staring you in the face, so you are encouraged to work them out - much less frustrating than simply saying "I dunno." Lots of social interaction and competition too. The range of material is huge. Great game!

I normally do not take the time to write reviews, but we all had such a great time playing Wit's End, so I figured what the heck....Anyway, we found this game by accident when buying the Junior version of the game for our kids. But while I was buying the kids game, I thought why not buy us adults something to keep us entertained. The game is centered around different brain teasers. During your turn you will answer 1 of 4 question types. Where you land on the board (and you can strategically decide where to land) determines what type of question you will answer. The Teaser category challenges you to find the relationship; the Odd-1-Out category asks you to decide which item, term, person or place does not belong; the Sequence category asks you to put everything imaginable into sequences; and the Wild Card Category mixes different types of challenges, such as naming famous songs, identifying famous quotes, etc.. The questions are fun and we had a blast answering them. We highly recommend Wit's End, it had an edge over other Trivia games we have played.
