I wouldn’t say I’m a gambler, but I would say that I’ve been known to tempt my luck on occasion. I might pick up some scratchers or a lotto ticket when I feel like luck is on my side. I think that many people enjoy that thrill that comes from “gambling,” although I definitely look at it more as a “fun” thing. With the Wits & Wagers Party game, you can get that rush of excitement from betting with none of the risk of losing any money (unless you happen to take this game to a whole new level with “side bets.”)
Wits & Wagers Party combines your brain power with the thrill of the bet. Gameplay is simple; Wits & Wagers poses a series of trivia questions. Each player (Wits & Wagers Party can have up to 6 players or teams) writes down their best answer for that question and then everyone places their guess in front of them. With everyone’s answers shown, players then place their bets on who they think is closest to the right answer without going over. The person who bets on the closest answer wins the bet and wins poker chips. The person or team with the most poker chips after 7 questions wins the game.
Not only is this a fun game that can get you thinking, but I love how you can use a betting strategy to get more chips. For example, if Uncle Bob is a Civil War historian but doesn’t know movies, you can bet on his answer for historical facts but someone else’s for film questions. You theoretically could win this game without getting any of the answers right, just be strategically betting on the other person’s strengths.
This is a great game to play with older kids (ages 8+) or at your next house party. Everyone can get involved, engaged, and place their bets! If you’d like to buy Wits & Wagers Party, you can find it at your nearest Walmart.
