Wits & Wagers Family Game Review & Giveaway

How many Hershey's Kisses are made with 1 pound of chocolate?

96

The randomly chosen winner is: 
 Laurie

Thanks for playing :)


One word can sum up this game from North Star Games:

 FUN!  

Ever play one of those trivia games and you don't know any answers, but someone else does, every time?  You just can't win.  Kind of takes all the fun out of the game.

Well, that's me.  I play those type games and feel VERY stupid....feeling stupid is no fun :(

That's probably why I liked Wits and Wagers Family so much.  No one is supposed to really know the answers.  But you can learn a lot of interesting information by playing.  And get a lot of laughs in the process.

For example, do you know?
How many Hershey's Kisses are made with 1 pound of chocolate?
Just give them to me, I'll take them all! 
I didn't, but do now... 

How about this one:
On average, how many times a day does a teenager talk on the cell phone?
any guesses?

The answer to every question is a number.  

Here's a quick rundown on how to play:

1) A question is asked.
2) Everyone writes down a guess.
3) The guesses are placed face-up on the table and ordered smallest to largest.
4) Place your Meeples (colored playing pieces, 1 small, 1 large) on the guess that you think is closest without going over to the right answer.

Scoring
You can score up to 4 points on each question:
1 point for correctly placing the Small Meeple
2 points for correctly placing the Large Meeple
1 point if your guess is closest
The first player to 15 points wins.

This would be a great game to play to jazz up your homeschool day. Or even just pull out a question and research the answer to learn more about it.  Just don't tell the kids that they are learning. :)

It's quick and easy to learn, yet packed with fun!
