- Challenges you to link your tiles to create your own words!
- Includes 100 two-sided letter tiles, 4 gray bank tiles, 4 letter bags and rules.

My daughter just loves playing games like this because she is a smart cookie and always up to creating words, whether she’s reading a book or playing Word Mole on my Blackberry she is always thinking of spelling. What a great game that is also educational! A fun family game night gift idea.
Trivial Pursuit by Hasbro Games – the most inclusive and exciting version of TRIVIAL PURSUIT yet, where players don’t have to know all the answers to win – but they do need to know their friends! TRIVIAL PURSUIT: Bet You Know It edition introduces high stakes betting to trivia, where players bet on whether or not their opponents know the answer. Guess correctly and players will earn chips that can be used to buy wedges — or they can earn wedges by answering questions correctly on their turn.
- When you play it, you don’t have to know all the answers to win – it’s what you think your friends know that really counts.
- Bet they’ll know it or bet they won’t, either way a smart bet can turn your winnings into wedges.
- Provide something for everyone.
- With 1,800 fascinating questions there’s plenty of great content to get you talking
- Ages 8 +
Our family loves to try to play this game but we need more people around. Maybe we can enjoy this over holiday break a bit more with family! I think that would be the best way to enjoy this game! Take it to you on Christmas day to your dinner with the family and have fun!
Disclosure: Both games in this review were provided to me for free to enjoy with my family as part of Family Game Night.
