Review

'Whether you want to learn, challenge yourself or impress, Wine Wars will let you have tons of fun with the topic of wine. And that's what it's all about!' --Andrea Robinson, Master Sommelier

'Whether you're an aspiring Master Sommelier or a passionate enogeek, Wine Wars is just the ticket to challenge your grape to glass saavy striking an edutaining balance of bacchanalian trivia with those need to know wine factoids.' --Evan Goldstein, Master Sommelier and author of Perfect Pairings: A Master Sommelier's Practical Advice for Partnering Wine with Food

'Wine Wars is so entertaining we almost hate to spoil the fun by pointing out that it's educational, too. Its sister game Foodie Fight is an equally delicious diversion and a perfect pairing!' -- Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg, award-winning authors of What to Drink with What You Eat and The Flavor Bible

Since the two people intended to play this game in my case (xmas gift) both have a strong background in wine, it's less than exciting - lots of simple wine questions and since the "play" of the game consists of pretty much solely of rolling a die to see which category question gets asked, it's not a very interesting game. Many of the questions are misleading (true or false questions where the statement "something rather than something is true" is considered false because they are both true, and poorly worded questions are frequently confusing, as well as many opinion-based questions being offered up as fact-based) - so even if you do have information connected to the question you may or may not answer "correctly." Overall, might be a bit more fun for a group, but since the game is so simplistic and the questions go from incredibly simple to convoluted/opinion-based with not much in between I wouldn't recommend this to someone who already has a lot of wine knowledge because it will be a mildly frustrating snooze.

We've adored Foodie Fight and we're delighted to learn about Wine Wars- It didn't disappoint! I highly recommend Wine Wars and Foodie Fight for your home. I've given both games as gifts with rave reviews and have since ordered extra copies to give to the Foodies and Wine lovers in our life. Cheers!

My husband has been a waiter in a fine dining establishment for over 25 years so needless to say, he has a good amount of wine knowledge. I purchased this product to entertain him at work when business is slow. So far, he has enjoyed the variety of questions included. But,you don't have to be a wine expert to play this game, trust me, I'm no expert and I can play too!

I love all things food and wine, so when I discovered Wine Wars, I knew I had to have it! I was a little worried that my limited wine knowledge might not stand up to the questions, but I actually won the first time I played! It's especially fun to play when with people of different levels of wine knowledge, because players are able to rely on their strengths in science, language, culture, etc. (not just food & wine). I've found the packaging and individual game boards to be great. The box is small enough to take with you on the go--makes for an easy, impromtu trivia night with friends or at a party to liven things up!

This is a very fun game. With two people, it goes by pretty quickly, about 1/2 an hour. What I really love about it is the questions really range in difficulty, and there are multiple choice questions. You certainly don't have to bee a wine expert to play, but if you are, it would still be fun too.

Too much like monopoly. I played it a few times with different friends. Everyone thought it was boring. Not a stimulating game.

Got this set as a gift for a friend who's a sommelier and he absolutely loved it. When he's not playing the game with his wine pals, he uses the set as flash cards. Excellent quality and extremely well priced!
