I bought this game to reinforce our homeschooling, and to just add some fun learning activities into our home. It is fun and entertaining.

One thing that is really neat is that your younger child can win, even if they are not the smartest in the group. (If they can manage to land on Wise Alec spaces.)
Those cards instead of being questions are more like commands-for points the player may be told to "pat your head, rub your belly." Another card said to "give 3 other words for sleep."

The game says it is for ages 8 and up. My 8 year old pretty much struggled with every category question given. In order to give her a fair shot, I just began to make up some questions from recent things we had learned. Game questions are categorized in History, Science, Spelling. (I must admit even I struggled with many of the History and Science questions.)There are two levels you can choose from. The lower level questions usually gain the player 3 points, where the harder question gains 7. Of course this usually allows the older player to win, because they have more knowledge. That is where the wise Alek cards come in. The problem is that if younger players cannot answer questions, they won't continue to play because they become frustrated and feel it is too hard. Playing a modified version with younger children would be my suggestion. Another great idea would be to use test review questions with your children, this could be a great way to review homework, or for an upcoming test.

In my opinion the spelling words are pretty challenging. My 9 year old could not even pronounce some of the words, so he could not ask me the question. He was able to spell a few of the words, but they would really be more appropriate for Jr. High-Adult age range.

It's pretty common that parents seem to think they've got the smartest kids around. We put that belief to the test with this family board game from Griddly Games - Wise Alec.

At the core, Wise Alec is a "roll and move" family board game full of trivia and challenges. Players roll dice, move their pieces around the board, and answer questions based on the spaces they land on.

However, one of the key differences with Wise Alec is that players have a bit more control on which spaces they land on. Sure players are reliant on the roll of the die as to how far they can move, but players can choose which paths to take. While there is one space marked as "Start" there is no "Finish" space and players can meander around the various tracks on the board at their will (provided they move in a general clockwise manner).

You choose your path.
And because players can choose when to take off on another path, they can often determine the type of question they'll have to face.

Fountains of Knowledge
At the outset of the game, players agree how long they want to play - whether to a certain number of points or for a certain amount of time. Then you're off and earning points by answering questions or performing Wise Alec tasks.

The spaces in Wise Alec are colored red, green, yellow, blue, orange, and purple - 3 corresponding to a different category of knowledge and 3 adding variety.

Sample Wise Alec cards.
*Red = History
*Green = Science
*Yellow = Spelling
*Blue = You pick the category
*Orange = Player to your right picks the category
*Purple = Wise Alec (potpourri) card is drawn
If you land on a Wise Alec space, simply take a card, read it and do what it says.

We use Wise Alec as part of our screen-free after-school enrichment programs and our students LOVE it! Wise Alec is also a huge hit at our Family Games Nights!

I love Wise Alec because it allows us to play a single game with different grade levels and multiple generations. This is a game parents will truly enjoy playing with their kids!

Wise Alec is so much fun to play in teams too! It is perfect for your next family get together!

We play this game without board, but like a game show. We have two teams who compete. My kids love it. We play when we've got a big group of kids, or at a multi generational family gathering. We can adapt questions to what the kids are studying in school, too.

I love to give this to the kids teachers for indoor recess or a fun way to review subjects. The teachers love it too!

Our whole family loved this game. Everyone could play and win. It was great for the youngest in our family because they felt they could complete and win.
