Wits and Wagers Family game

Wits & Wagers Family

WOW! We find a crazy new family fun game!  It is so quick and easy to play that we easily pick it up and play it for 10 minutes or so.  What game is this you ask???  I'm talking about the Wits & Wagers Family by Dominic Crapuchettes through North Star Games, a party game company.

What is up with this party game?? Here is information straight from their website:

A Family Edition of the Most Award-Winning Party Game in History!

Wits & Wagers Family simplifies the rules and scoring system of the popular Wits & Wagers. Now families and kids can get into the Wits & Wagers action! First, every player writes down a guess to a fun question. Then players try to score points by choosing which guess is closest to the right answer without going over. That is it!
The game features 300 new family-friendly questions. And even better than that, Wits & Wagers Family includes Meeples, fun, cute, human shaped wooden pieces that the players use to select which answers they think are correct. Meeples have been a hallmark in European style strategy games for years, but this is the first time they have made an appearance in a party game.
So check out Wits & Wagers Family, the game that combines laughter and learning in a way that all ages can enjoy together!
 My take on the game:  Ok my family has had a lot of fun with this game.  We play it with mainly 5 people, ages 11-40.  IT is one of those really quick games that you can pick up and play a full round in 10-20 minutes.   I was super impressed that my husband knew what the game was when I showed him the box!  He plays games that takes hours and hours to play so I figured this game would be one of those that he would just tolerate to play with his family.  He is the one who has suggested several times to get the game out and play.  My girls and the kitty (below) loves playing, too!
 I'm all about messing with people during games.  This game is all about using your wits or pretending you have your wits about you!  You can really play on people in this game.  There is A LOT of strategy with this game if you want to use it!   It takes playing it a few times to get your strategy groove going.  Now if you aren't into all that and just want to have fun this game then this is for you, too!  I'm about having fun but the competitive gear always kicks in when I'm playing games.  
This is a very simple game to learn.  Everyone gets two cute MEEPLES , both worth different values.  A question is read and everyone playing gets to answer the question on their own answer board.  I love how you use a dry erase marker for your answers!  SAVES ON PAPER! Thank you very much for thinking of this! Then you line up the numeric answers and bet  with your MEEPLE on which answer you think is correct. without going over  the correct answer.  Then MEEPLE points are scored based on the correct answer.  It is FUN to see the answer!  It is awesome to be correct or closes to the correct answer.  Little kids have won this game against adults!  Sometimes the adults over think their answer!
Do you want to win one of these games???  It would make a SUPER Christmas present for any family on your list!  Check it out and buy several copies for all your families! It is the most Award-Winning Party Game in History...now for the whole family!

I visited the site and learned Dominic is the Founder & Co-President of North Star Games. In 8th grade, Dominic earned the much-coveted “bad boy” title when his first game, Kabloogi, was banned from school because kids were playing it during first period. It is because of his great passion for games that he stopped captaining a commercial salmon fishing boat in Alaska to start the most innovative board game company on the planet.
