"Wits and Wagers over zoom": Ann Arbor Adventure Club.

  community member   < less

Wits and Wagers is combination of Trivia and The Price Is Right. Teams answer a trivia question such as, "How many people watched the final episode of MASH?". Then every team places bets on which answer they think is closest to the correct number, without going over. Seven questions, seven answers, seven bets ... and the team with the most chips at the end wins!
No need to have the game at home, no need to watch a tutorial in advance because it is so simple, no need even to have your own paper and pencil! Just log in and play.
