Gameday First Play – Wits & Wagers

Posted on by Jesta

Guessing & Betting.

Lots of guessing.

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. Think you know the answer? Bet on your guess. Think you know who the experts are? Bet on their guess. The closest answer pays out according to the odds on the betting mat. Strike it big and you’ll be cheering like you just hit the jackpot!

Wits & Wagers is a trivia game that lets you bet on anyone’s answer. So you can win by making educated guesses, by playing the odds, or by knowing the interests of your friends. It can be taught in 2 minutes, played in 25 minutes, and accommodates up to 20 people in teams.

That’s the game right there.

The only thing the blurb misses out is the best bit for me. The closest answer is right, but it has to be under the limit.

This is great until you reveal your answer of ’60’ and someone picked 60.2 🙂

It’s a good laugh, a bit American in the questions. It does feel more like a Pastime than a game and it loses out to Concept in that area but it’s still good fun.
