Bring the excitement of Vegas into your home! In Wits & Wagers Vegas, you don't need to know the answers to win. Anyone can win by betting on other players' guesses to questions like "How many Pringles come in a standard-size can?" or "What percent of American adults make their own bed every day?". Here's how to play:
1) READ A QUESTION. You're not supposed to know the answers, so just take your best guess. 2) PLACE YOUR BETS. Whose guess is closest to the correct answer? You can bet on any guess, even if it's not your own. 3) Collect YOUR CHIPS. And cheer like you just hit the jackpot!
If you're a new player, no prior experience is needed to play - the game features simple rules for instant excitement. If you're already a Wits & Wagers fan, you'll find all new questions and a felt betting mat with more ways to win. Contents include a 27.25" x 11.25" felt betting mat, 14 betting tokens, 80 cardboard poker chips, 1 removable poker chip tray, 108 question cards, 7 dry erase markers, 7 dry erase answer boards, 2 blockers, and 1 full-color rulebook.
Super fun game to have for those long weeks at home. Finally all my non important random facts come useful. We had a blast playing game. My boyfriend and I more so than the little ones. The little one is 11 and she was kinda bored with it. We adults loved it... the board could have been better for the price
LOVE this game! I got it at my local Target for a friend/family game night during the holidays and it was a big hit! It's really easy to learn and everyone can play. We had more than 15 people and we got into teams which was a blast. My daughter is 7 and she even got into it. My friends groaned a little when I told them it was a trivia game, but when they realized they didn't need to know the answers and can still win, they were all in! Just the right amount of competition and tons of laughter and fun!
I haven't laughed so hard in a while, this game is just super fun. I was nervous it would be hard to understand with the Vegas rules, but it was actually straightforward and an absolute blast! I love that my lack of trivia skills didn't hinder my ability to play.
Ok, I was pleasantly surprised. We used to play a lot of Trivial Pursuit. I thought this was similar. Nope. Nobody knew the answers! Apparently no one is supposed to know. So everyone just took their best guesses. That was nice, because I never felt dumb. And then you bet on who's guess is the closest. fun! I recommend it!
If you have the old version, now might be the time to get new questions!

I have loved this game for years. I had the older version in the yellow box, and i played it so much i felt like it was time to get more questions (I think some of my friends have memorized them). I heard this version had new bets, so I figured now was the time to get an updated version.
I love that it feels like playing a Las Vegas Table game (which I know far too much about...lol), but at home, on a smaller table. It’s still is great for trivia folks (unless they are the kind of trivia folks that get mad because they don’t always know the right answer) and folks who don’t LOVE trivia (since you don’t really need to know the answers to do well), and the new bets add more ways for folks to throw money around, which is always fun.
I played it this weekend and everyone loved it, folks used the new bets, and the bigger payouts for being right was a lot of fun (it used to be the same amount for every question, now it goes up as the game goes on) and feels like the stakes get bigger as the game goes on.
It was a great game for parties, and it still is a great game for parties, check it out!
This is an awesome game. I had heard of Wits & Wagers from some friends who stated it was their go-to game with friends and family. It really is! It's essentially a trivia game, but the cool thing is that you don't really need to know the answers. You guess at the answer and then everyone bets on whether that answer is correct (or closest to the correct answer). It's so much fun. I recently had a family reunion and the whole family played - from the grandparents to the little ones (7 years old - all the answers are numbers, so sometimes their answers were way out there, but that's ok because they had a blast and we all fell over laughing when they actually won a round!) We also played a few times in teams so everyone could play, and that worked really well. I'm so glad that this was recommended to me. I am now paying it forward and telling all my friends. BTW - the Vegas theme is very cool too.
My favorite edition of a favorite game. A funny, thoughtful, swingin' party game.

This is a rare game that manages to be both funny and thoughtful. It's funny because the answers are so unexpected, and watching players bet way wrong and bust is hilarious. It's thoughtful because, though no one knows the answers, you can make clever inferences to get closer, and you can make wise bets to win. I've played previous Wits & Wagers games and I think I like this one the most. That's because players are less likely to get shut out early, so everyone has a shot at winning throughout. Also, the box is beautiful and the whole production has a swingin', vegas-y sensibility that brings out the feel of the game. A+
