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.
