Wits & Wagers Live

Tonight Northstar Games is hosting a live game of their newest edition of Wits & Wagers, Wits & Wagers Party via YouTube. The game will be hosted by Ryan Metzler.

The game itself will be played by Matt Carlson of Gaming With Children, Elliot Miller of The Gaming Gang, Matt Morgan of MTV Geek, Scott Nicholson, Tom Vasel of The Dice Tower and David Miller of Purple Pawn.

It all starts at 7:30pm tonight so don't miss it. To add to the appeal, they are also giving away a copy of the game to one lucky viewer who comments.

The game starts out like any other trivia game. A question is asked to the players and everyone writes down an answer. The difference is that each play then places their answers down in order of smallest to largest. The players then place their bets on which answer they think is either the correct answer or closest to the correct answer. Points are awarded for answering right, betting on the right answer and getting bets on your answer.

I've played the original game a couple years ago and it was a lot of fun. It rewarded a general knowledge of trivia, but it wasn't required to win. Just knowing who knew was enough. Any version of this game would be a welcome addition to any collection and great for families and groups who like party games.
