Wits & Wagers

Posted: June 2, 2008 in Uncategorized

I got a free board game today in the mail!  Yeehaa!  I entered a contest and won!  Yeehaa!  What is the game you might ask?  Wits & Wagers.

This is a great trivia game.  The object is you have two little chips to place a bet with (OK, don’t rag on me for saying it’s a betting game..think of it as points instead of money…and no you do not play with money…).  What happens is there is a question read.  Then each team or individual has to answer the trivia question with a number.  For instance, the question might be something like, how many chapters of the bible are there (OK..I don’t think that question is actually in the game, but you get the point).  Someone might answer it dead on with 66, someone else might think they are talking about a catholic version, which includes some other books not mentioned here…, or someone might answer low, etc.

Then the answers are placed in order LOWEST to HIGHEST.

Next each person gets to bet (again, don’t rag on me for that bet word), and the people who bet on the closest number to the right answer without going over win based on the odds.  Each space has a payout odds.

The winner of the game is the person who has the most chips at the end of the game.  Again, there are seven rounds, so the total you make in seven rounds, the highest number of chips wins.

Anyway…You need at least 3 players to play, so I am going to see if some of my friends would like to play this sometime, and maybe get together so we can have some trivia fun.
