North Star Games - Wits and Wagers Review


Our family loves board games and playing together almost every night of the week.  I have been trying hard to include them during school time for a treat also.  But trivia games can be a challenge for the kids, we have a wide range of skill levels and everyone always wants to play the same game. 

Well, Wits & Wagers Family is one that allows a break from all those trivia games.  You make guesses and estimates for the questions.  Did I mention yet....what a great math game.

I played this with Joey and Lydia and they caught on quickly.  Estimation is something that Joey has trouble with, so I was nervous and expected some frustration when we started playing.  But I was amazed at how well they done.  Lydia is still working on the concept of estimation, so she gave some pretty wild guesses.  But they all really liked the game.  Caty mostly liked drawing on the little 

This is definitely a school time game for us.  The kids enjoyed it and repeatedly ask to play it. What a great way to make estimation fun and learn a few new facts along the way.  Do you know how many doors the White House has?  Or can you estimate how long Michael Phelps arm is?  Well I gave it my best, but lost out on both questions (it was a good thing I put my votes on the kids guesses...otherwise I would've never gotten any points on those).

The Kuehner Krew definitely marked this has HIGH FAMILY TIME FUN!!!

From the North Star Games website:

The Most Award-Winning Party Game in History!
Not a trivia buff? It doesn’t matter! Each player writes a guess to a question such as “In what year did the bikini swimsuit makes its first appearance?” or “How many feet wide is an NFL football field?” and places it face-up on the betting mat. Feeling confident? Bet on your guess. Think someone else knows better? Bet on their guess. Strike it big and you’ll be cheering like you just hit the jackpot!

Wits & Wagers is the most-award winning party game in history

Wits & Wagers has been featured in Real Simple, USA Weekend Magazine and on The Today Show and on Dave Ramsey

Wits & Wagers is most fun with seven teams at a large party or family gathering. Each of the seven teams should have one to three players.
