TOS Crew Review: Northstar Game's ~ Wits & Wagers Family

Our family has really enjoyed board games lately ... and, while I love games like Monopoly they can seem to drag on and on. Recently, we were given the opportunity to review a new game ~ "Wits & Wagers Family" by Northstar Games. We were immediately hooked! Even our youngest child, who was too young to play the game {game is best for 8 and up}, got into the action by keeping score.

The great thing about this game - not only is it fun, enjoyable, and easy to play for everyone, it is also fast paced.

Another bonus, being able to open a new game and have everyone playing within just a few short minutes. Here is how easy it is ...

1. Choose a card from the deck and ask a question from the card.

2. Have all players write down a numerical guess on the dry erase boards provided.

3. Players then reveals their guesses and each person bets on which answer is correct {
many times I knew my kids would know answer to something I did not like "How many official Disney Princesses are there?"}.

4. Award points to the players who bet on the correct answer and the player who gave the correct answer.

Too simple ... we have played multiple games and they have never lasted more than 15 or 20 minutes.
Our family gives it 2 thumbs up ... in fact, when I told my son I was sitting down to write this review he wanted to make sure I included how "awesome" this game is. Wits & Wagers Family is best for 3 - 6 players and can be found at local retailers and online. We saw this game on the shelf at our Target store for $19.99. I think it would make a great Christmas gift!

This is a great game, we're planning to bring it to a family's house to play after trick or treat

We like this, too, and I agree this and Say Anything are much more fun than the games from my childhood that seem to drag on and on.
