Wits & Wagers by North Star Games – Ages 10 & up 

I bought this game for my husband one year, who loves trivia and betting games.  This game combines both!  It has won SO many awards and claims to be the most award-winning party game in history.  There are 7 trivia questions on each card (these 7 will be the questions asked throughout the game).   The first question is read, then all players write down their answers on their boards.  All answers are then arranged on the green mat in chronological order and the betting begins.  Players place their chips on the answers (or two answers) they think will be the closest to the correct answer.  The answer is read and then the closest bid(s) will be paid out.  This is one of our favorites.
