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.

Very nice for playing if you have enough people who like wine and know smth about it. Good questions, very pleasant design and BTW the box is quite small, so you can take it anywhere. There are more than enough questionary cards, so you won't learn all the answers by heart too soon. I really recommend you to have this game.

This game is fun, and strikes the perfect balance of challenging all levels from the "expert" to total wine novice. Plenty of common and obscure questions in the mix, and enough true/false to keep the game going at a snappy pace. I am a huge fan of the similar games Foodie Fight and Foodie Fight Rematch, so picking up Wine Wars was a no-brainer. However, I can only give 3 stars because of the horrible quality of the game boards. They're very cute in design, with little wine bottle shaped pieces that fit into each board. However, they're very shoddily made and fit way too tightly so it's difficult to get them in and out of the boards without ripping them or damaging the coating. On our first play, my husband was having so much trouble with the game pieces and I thought it was just him being clumsy and having large hands. I have tiny fingers and good dexterity so I thought I'd show him how it's done, but nope...same issues for me too. It's basically a terrible design and execution, but a good game. If we wear it out quickly I suppose we could use some sort of stone or other type of marker to take the place of the little cardboard wine bottle pieces.

I played this game with a friend, and I wouldn't say we're experts by any means, but we did have a variety enough of knowledge to guess correctly 80% of the time. Some of the questions are super easy, and then some are outrageously difficult in the Pink Category of cork culture. It was nice to have a way to test wine knowledge on a variety of planes for the average enthusiast, but you'd be hard pressed to find someone an expert in every category but the Cork Culture category was a bit frustrating for us. All in all, great game, even if you just take the cards out and ask questions for fun. Definitely worth the purchase!
