|I know from experience that it's just as fun playing Wits and Wagers Family |
when your house is messy as when it's clean : ).
Wits and Wagers Family is suitable for ages 8 and up and can be played with as few as 3 players. We usually play as 4 individuals, but I can see that this could be a fun party game played in teams of 3 or four people each. The game doesn't have a board, which makes it easy to play anywhere, like on this ottoman in the middle of our living room. And because I know you're dying to know, I'll share with you my winning question. I guessed correctly and bet on myself that the longest known celery stalk measured 9 feet. As you can see above, Mr. Monk was ahead and feeling a bit overconfident when I pulled out the win on this question. While we each had our areas of expertise, and no, I hadn't realized celery and spelling bees fell into that category for me, there were also questions that we were all completely clueless about. One of them had to do with American Idol and another with Sponge Bob, two shows none of us know anything about. Actually, it's almost more fun on those questions, because you have the greatest range of answers and have to spread out your bets.
Wits and Wagers Family is available from retailers such as Barnes and Noble for $19.95. If you enjoy family game night at your house you might want to consider Wits and Wagers Family for a Christmas gift this year that will keep on giving.
