it’s family game night! {giveaway}

Not too long ago a bloggy friend asked on her facebook page if anyone still played board games. She thought so, but her husband argued otherwise. I replied immediately–YES! I love board games and I don’t think they’re just for kids. My husband and I will play together and his side of the family are game players, too. It’s not unusual for us all to get together for a game night after little children go to bed! It’s one of my favorite ways to spend friend and family time.

North Star Games has a great collection and we’ve played a few of them. I met them this year in NYC while at BlogHer and we recently received the Wits and Wagers Party game to try out. We LOVE trivia games so we knew this would be a hit.

I first played Wits and Wagers (the original version) at a “casino night” party a friend threw. It’s a betting game so it fit well with the theme and was a ton of fun! I was really excited to see this new “Party” version of it.

The game is simple: a trivia question is asked, all the players write down their answer, and then everyone bets on who they think has the RIGHT answer. You can bet on yourself or on anyone else. You can win the game without even knowing any of the right answers–now that’s my kinda trivia game, haha.

It’s for ages 8 and up and you can have 4+ players (up to 6 teams with as many people as you want). Every question has a numerical answer and you guess the correct answer¬†without going over.

You earn poker chips by guessing the right answer or by having the right answer. After 6 rounds of this, you can bet the poker chips you’ve earned on the 7th round. Then the person/team with the most poker chips wins!

It’s kind of a fast moving game, which means lots of fun and entertainment. I think it took us about 25 minutes to play once through. Perfect for a party night! I would definitely buy this as a gift for a friend… even though the suggested age starts at 8, it’s definitely for adults too and we have a lot of fun!

You can buy Wits and Wagers Party at Walmart for $29.99.
