Wits and Wagers Casino Game

Wits and Wagers is a trivia game that lets you bet on anyone’s answer. You can win big by making educated guesses, by playing the odds or by knowing the interests of your friends. Each player writes a guess to questions such as “In what year did the bikini swimsuit make its first appearance?” or “How many feet wide is an NFL football field?” and places it face-up on the table. Think you know the answer? Bet on your guess. Think you know who the experts are? Bet on their guess. The closest answer pays out according to the odds on the table.

ASK A QUESTION
Each player (or team) writes a guess to the question on their Answer Board and places it face-up on the table. Don’t worry, no one is expected to know the answer, so just take your best guess!

PLACE YOUR BETS
Each player places their Bet on the Answer Board they think is closet without going over.

PAYOUT
