Looking for a fun party game to play with your kids? I just got the chance to try out a game called Wits & Wagers Family Edition, from North Star Games. My husband and I got the biggest kick out of this game. It is actually a trivia game, similar to the popular Wits & Wagers, but from what I gather, made a bit easier for families. You can play with individual players, or groups with kids 8 and up (although we let Emma on a teamJ
The game surprised me, in that I expected the game to be more verbal—while it IS a trivia game, each answer is given using a number! This threw me a bit, but my boys loved this. You can work in teams and even win without knowing the exact answer…because you can also score points by placing your piece (Meeples) on a teammates guess. Whoever comes closest to the correct number, without going over, wins the points.
I liked the game parts and pieces- everything is simple, not lots of stuff to piece together or lose, but well made scoreboards that you use w/dry erase markers and lots of question cards. The little wooden Meeples, are people shaped playing pieces—my kids loved those.
This is a fun addition for game lovers for the Holidays. You can find Wits & Wagers Family at Toys R’Us and I just saw this at Target…I also saw Wits & Wagers Family on sale right now on Amazon (sign up for Amazon Mom and get in time for Christmas with free shipping!)
