Christmas Idea #7 – Wits & Wagers game

shapeimage_2 A few weeks ago, members of the TOS Homeschool Crew received a copy of Wits & Wagers Family from North Star Games.  Because I am the Crew Captain, I receive copies of the review items also; but rarely to I share my thoughts about them on my blog because it messes with the status quo.  However, when a product really stands out to me, it’s worth mentioning.  Such is the case with this game.

Here is the description from the company’s website:

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 family really enjoys this game. We’ve played it several times now and it’s always good for a laugh and fun times!  Even Ian (4) likes to get involved.  Sometimes his answers are a little extreme, but that’s 1/2 the fun.  There have even been a few times when Ian has actually won the game!

We are very impressed with this game and will definitely be recommending it to friends.  The game can be purchased online at  We saw the regular Wits & Wagers version at our local Target store also.

I’d like to check out some of the other games by North Star games.  You can keep up with North Star games by following them on Twitter and Facebook.

NOTE: I received a free copy of this game as part of my work with the TOS Homeschool Crew.  I was not obligated to post about it on my blog.
