Neat feature of this game is that children and non-trivia buffs can play.
When you see all the guesses (you write them on little erase board and put them out for all to see)
and you don't like your guess
you can place a bet on Grandpa's guess (he's knows his trivia)
and still win the game. Or, if seeing all the guesses - one jogs your
memory as the correct one (as happens in other trivia games where a little
memory jog helps you remember the correct answer - but it's too late)
it's not too late in this game - to bet on it.
Even the grouchy anti-trivia gamers in the family enjoyed it.
The game is great because you "score" by selecting the correct answer after everybody reveals their guesses, not by always knowing the right answer from the start. So, for example, when asked when the prohibition ended... my cousin (who guessed 1980s) saw that everyone else had written down much earlier guesses, and could assume that she was way off (and not bet on her answer).
It helps level the playing field a bit. It also created an atmosphere where nobody felt left out or idiotic for not knowing the answers. Everyone had a good time.
My relatives enjoyed the game so much that they have taken it with them on a family vacation this week! So, it was definitely a great gfit idea, and lots of fun!
The play mechanics are slightly different from the family edition and may confuse younger kids. For this reason, I recommend Wits & Wagers for when you have parties...the more players you have playing, the better. Some of the questions are definitely geared towards adults, however, I did come across a few repeats...that is, questions that were asked in the family edition. "What percent of US households own at least one pet cat?" is an example of a question asked in both editions of the game.
The poker chips are a nice touch and I definitely enjoyed using those over meeples (the betting mechanic in the family edition). You have more options with the chips and are able to be as risky or as safe as you want to be. This opens the door for a wider range of scores and strategy.
While the game is listed as being four players minimum, three is possible (though not ideal) if you're willing to be creative. For example, each player could receive two marker boards and two sets of wager chips, allowing them to guess twice and bet with four wager chips instead of two. Again, it's not ideal, but it worked okay for when the boys and I were playing. The game was playable with an eleven year old, so as long as I picked and chose which questions I read. Both Anthony (16) and Vinnie Jr (11) enjoyed playing my variant, and having four betting chips and two answer boards gave them more options. They both felt that seven rounds weren't enough, so we played to about twelve.
Overall, Wits & Wagers is a good addition to your "party game" collection. It can be played as a game on family game night with the right tweaks, and some families may even find it better than the family edition. Still, if you have very young kids and want to let them in on the fun, I'd recommend the family edition. Otherwise, this edition will work just as well, if not better.
