My friends and I play it time and time again! We're hooked! And I guarantee anyone who tries this game will be hooked as well! Each time you never know what crazy endings people will come up with, or what the real ending will be! This game ensures good times and a room full of uncontrollable laughter! Even if you don't like boardgames, this one is a sure-fire winner.
A quick overview, the game is exactly like Balderdash except with old sayings instead of difficult word definitions. If you've never played Balderdash, here's an explanation of "Wise and Otherwise": There are 500 cards in a box with 5 old sayings on each card. The reader reads the first part of an old saying and everyone makes up the ending. You score points for guessing the correct saying or if anyone selects the one that you made up.
You would be amazed at how good the made up sayings are in the end. Your friends will be really good at it in just a few rounds.
I was also amazed at how well I remember the sayings after we've finished a game. This isn't the case with Balderdash where I'll never remember the definition of a word. This makes the re-playability a little lower, but the educational value much higher. As another reviewer pointed out, you have all kinds of new sayings to use around the office... how true. :-)
It is easily one of the best party games ever. My thanks to the folks at Wise and Otherwise for their act of creation in making this game.
Some of my favorite sayings: Cameroonian - "Why did you go into the clearing in the bush without first..." 1)making a lot of noise? 2)collecting leaves from the wambush tree? 3)first making friends with the monkeys?
Irish: "A cow dung is ..." 1) never far from the cow. 2) wider when trodden upon. 3) the surest thing from here to there.
If you like party games at all, this is an excellent addition to your other games. Have fun!
At first I was a little skeptical, afraid that the sayings would be too obviously obscure and demanding, but someone there did a great job re-interpreting them a lttle bit for this generation.
Don't wait, buy this one --now-- I am 100% positive it is going to be a big hit this holiday season. In fact our local Toy's R Us coldn't keep it in stock already! (It's on my wish list if you want to pick it up for us!)
It is great for anyone 12 and up, but I bet if you break your younger kids in on it, they'll learn a lot too! I love games like this that actually help you expand your cultural horizons while you have a great time. Hopefully, toy makers will bring more on like this one.
It's simply a wonderful game.
