Review:
Wits & Wagers Family is a fun, quick numbers trivia game for 3-5 players or teams. It consists of a rack of 150 question cards (with 2 questions each), a dry-erase score board, 5 color-coded dry-erase answer boards, 5 pens, 10 colored "Meeple" tokens (5 large and 5 small), and an instruction sheet. After a question is read aloud, each player writes a guess on their answer board and places it on the table. Players put their Meeples on the guess(es) they think are closest to the real answer without going over. A large Meeple on the closest answer scores 2 points while a small Meeple on the closest answer scores 1 point. One point also goes to the person who wrote the best answer. A total score of 15 wins a game. As examples, How many feet across is a pitcher's mound? What was the youngest person to win an Olympic Gold Medal? What is the record number of text messages sent between 2 people in one month? On average, how any miles away can a lion's roar be heard? No one is expected to get the correct answer to these outrageous kid-friendly questions; one must just wager well. If you think your answer is the best, put your Meeples there, but if you think Dad might know better, go with his answer. Question sources and answers are cited.
