The game comes with a set of question cards that ask questions that even Jeopardy! players would find hard to know. (Such as "How many elevators operate within the Empire State Building?") The cards are nicely designed and sturdy. The answers come printed on the backs and include extra details to flesh out the interesting nature of the questions.
The players bet on a betting table board (fabric over a rubberized back in the first edition, felt in the second). The betting board contains a series of odds that run from the middle at 1:1 to the ends at 4:1. Each players selects one of seven colors and receives two wooden bet markers painted in their color. Players then receive a dry-erase marker and a small dry-erase board framed in their color. They also receive ten red chips (worth 5 pts each) and three blue (10 pts). A 30-second sand timer limits stalling on answering questions or betting.
A game consists of seven questions. A question with a numerical answer is read from the card and the timer set. Each player writes his answer on his dry-erase board. When time is called, the player's answers are placed on the betting board according to their spread; the response in the middle of all answers is placed at the center of the betting board at 1:1 with the rest spread in numerical order across the betting positions (with increasing odds against) on each side.
Players are then given 30 more seconds to bet once the answers are in place.Read more ›
If you simply want to read the summary of what I think about Wits & Wagers, here it is: It's one of the best party games your money can buy. It's got all the hallmarks of a great party game: Fun & Exciting, light, family friendly, easy to learn, and short gametime to allow for multiple playings.
So that's it. But if you want to know how our first game of Wits & Wagers went, read on.
I had not been into the gaming scene for a long time, and in my small collection I had zero party games. This led me to do some searching around for the ONE party game that will make it to my tiny collection.
I had come across Wits & Wagers in my searches and found the premise of the game to be very interesting. However, being a value (read: cheap) gamer that I am, I wanted to wait to place my order as a bulk to save on shipping cost. When North Star Games graciously offered a 2nd edition copy to be reviewed, I immediately jumped on the opportunity. After a few days the game arrived.
I then waited and waited, and waited for the right opportunity to introduce the game to our group. Having read the rules and learning about the overall sense of the gameplay I have a feeling that the game will do better with more people than it would with less. Our group consisted of some casual gamers and many who are non-gamers. When we finally had our Christmas gathering, I did a headcount and there were twenty-three people left after dinner. There were 4 simultaneous games going on and one group just finished a game. perfect.Read more ›
Basic premise of the game is that there is a question, which requires a numerical answer. For example, a question could be - "How many positive reviews does Wits and Wagers have on Amazon?" Everyone guesses the answer on a tiny little whiteboard, and then everyone reveals at the same time. Those answers are place in order from small to large, and then you bet on where you think the answer is, including an option that says everyone has guessed too high. The further from the middle guess, the higher your reward in terms of chips which you bet. At the end, after 10 questions, the person with the highest number of chips wins.
There are additional versions of this game as well. Family version is great if you have small kids, the questions can make sense to a 5 year old, and the betting 'odds' are removed to make it simpler. For the party version, the odds are removed, and it flows a bit faster.
The only con to this game that I have is that there are only 250 questions, and I don't see any refills available.
