Wits and Wagers Family is a Fun Trivia Game for the Entire Family

Updated on November 25, 2013

A few years ago, I bought Wits and Wagers Family for my grandkids for Christmas. It was a hit! I just played it the other day with my granddaughter, so it has stood the test of time.

How to Play Wits and Wagers

Wits and Wagers is a game where each player gets a mini whiteboard and marker. A card is drawn from the stack and a question is read. An example might be: How many eggs are in a dozen? (This is not a real question from the game!)

The players would then write down their answer on their little whiteboard. When everyone has their answer, they line them up from lowest number to highest. If everyone guesses 12, those whiteboards are set side by side.

Then each player uses their "meople" pieces (the little people that come with the game) to guess which answer is right. They can choose their own answer or someone else's answer. Whoever guesses the right answer without going over, gets a point. The person with the most points at the end, wins the game.


This game is recommended for children 6 and older, but it can be played with kids of any age depending on the child's reasoning skills. An adult helping a younger child is a great way to introduce them to this fun game.
