Product Description:

While we like the original Wits & Wagers, we thought it was unfortunate that the game relied heavily on betting with poker chips, which we knew would be a negative for some families. Surprisingly, the manufacturer listened to similar feedback and has made over their excellent "trivia guessing game" into a family-style party game with a lower price too! In this version, 3-5 players (or teams) receive a large and a small "Meeple" (wooden person-shaped marker), a matching dry erase card and a dry erase marker. One player reads a question, which is a trivia question with a numerical answer, like "How many men have walked on the moon?" Players write down their best guess on their dry erase card, and when everyone has written an answer, the cards are arranged from lowest to highest value. Now everyone gets to look over all the guesses, and place their Meeples on the guesses they think are best (closest to the answer without going over). Players can score points for either writing the winning guess, or for placing a Meeple on the winning guess. You don't have to know the answer to win you just need to figure out who might! Includes 300 new questions (not found in original game), but can also be used with questions from the original. Jess

Category Description for Wits & Wagers:

Named "Party Game of the Year" by Games Magazine, this hilarious trivia guessing game is truly fun for all - trivia buff or trivia phobe! To play, just lay out the football-field inspired mat, and each player receives two betting tokens, a dry-erase answer card, and a dry erase marker. Assign one player to be the Banker and one player to be the Question Reader. Each round, the Question Reader reads a trivia question, and then each player or team guesses at an answer and writes it on their answer card. Now, all 252 trivia questions has a numerical answer, such as "How many miles long is the Mississippi River?" so all players can guess at an answer. Answers are placed on the playing mat, from lowest to highest, and then players/teams place their two betting chips on the answers that they think are closest. In this case, if you had no idea how long the Mississippi River was, but you're playing with your brother who's a geography buff, you might bet on his answer. After everyone has placed their chips, the answer is revealed, and players who bet on the answer that is closest (without going over) receive additional chips. Then it's on to the next round! Games are pretty short, consisting of 7 questions each, and the player/team with the most points at the end of the 7th round wins! We like this one because everyone plays at the same time, and everyone can enjoy it, regardless of knowledge or age! For 4-20 players; play duration is about 
25 minutes.
