That is not a typo in the name; this game is not about words to the wise. We, the players, are the wise ones. In this game players are challenged to come up with words as the fast-paced game speeds along. We must find words, alphabetically, to match categories. Category cards tell you to name, e.g. movies, trees, emotions, flavors and so much more. How about cars? Audi, Bentley, Cadillac, Dodge, and on through the alphabet. Stuck? Not to worry. If you have a Wise Alec card you can use it to skip one letter ahead, repeat letter used before, pass, and even one that lets you use the letter to end the word. So if you need a car with the letter U, laugh it off. Wise Alec permits you to say Suburu, instead. Yes, it calls for quick thinking but isn't that what word games are all about? Cards list categories in English, French, German and Spanish, with appropriate instructions (but we stick with English; my second language is Pig Latin!). This compact game is good to go so travel with it and play solitaire while waiting for your plane to take off! We've played this game over and over and something new is always coming up, along with laughter and players moaning after they miss something "so simple".

We recently picked up Words of the Wise and loved it! It's a use-your-brain game using the ABC's to come up with as many words alphabetically as you can, based on the topic.

You can play individually, with a group, or in teams, which makes it the idea game for families, or your favorite teacher. Each topic point value changes based on difficulty level. We started with "Food", so it was fun to hear my kids zip through apples, bananas, candy and donuts, but the best part was when they got to "Q" and "X" -then I got to shout out quail eggs! We even found them at our local supermarket on our next visit!!! We did search for an "X" food and found xylocarp, but since we'd never heard of it, we skipped it. Other categories include "Sea Life," "Transportation," "Companies," "TV Characters," and lots more worth between 10 and 50 points.

The game also has Wise Alec cards that allow you to skip turns, pass, skip letters and several other options as well.

It's definitely a bonus when you can find a game that works with a multi-aged group - plus, we're taking a long road-trip this summer, so the cards will be great non-electronic entertainment.

We made up our own rules as we played. It was fun for a group of about 12. It got people involved. Plenty of teasing for those "forgot" the alphabet. A worthwhile party game. Light hearted and fun.

Not only is this a fun board game, it is educational and keeps the mind sharp. I like having that variety.

My friends and I love a good game night and Words of the Wise is a fun addition to our rotation. I really like how simple the concept is. And the results are hilarious. Especially if someone says something questionable or that they clearly made up. We added some extra rules while playing it having a judge and challenge ability and it made it super competitive between our teams. There were tons of laughs and there are requests to play this game every time we get together.
An interesting touch to this version is that it has multiple languages on it. If you are practicing or learning a foreign language, it would be a fun way to enhance those skills. I like that the box for the game is really small because you can easily take it with you and even play it on road trips! Overall, a really fun game that I highly recommend.
I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion and review.

This is a fun game for all ages. It can be played in a variety of ways answering either verbally or written. There are questions and each player answers in alphabetical order. For example "Mountains", the first player answers with a mountain that starts with the letter "A", for ex. "Andes", or "Alps" or "Appalachian", next player has to answer with a mountain that starts with the letter "B". If a player can't think of a name they are eliminated from that round!

This is a fun game that can also be educational. It is perfect for family game night as well as parties. The words are also written in Spanish, French and German. It comes in an easy to store box. This box does not take up much space it fits in a backpack or suitcase, great for travel, camp and hiking. I received this game for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. I am very pleased!
