With computers and video games, sometimes it feels like board games are a thing of the past. They aren’t, but we don’t bring them out quite as often anymore. Most board games seem to have an electronic version making it easier to sit back and do little during the game. Wise Alec is a family friendly game geared towards ages 8+. It’s a trivia game filled with information from grade school.
Gulp, do I remember half that stuff?
We received the Wise Alec Family Trivia Game and three travel/expansion sets. The board has a starting point but no real end since the “end” is predetermined by the amount of points someone wins. Before starting, you choose your point goal. This makes it easier to level the playing field between children and adults playing since each player could have a different point goal to reach in order to win.
The travel can also be used to expand your game. I like that you can use them for on the go and as an addition. While the trivia may seem less flashy and fun (no paparazzi or pop culture… instead its got History, science, spelling…) it’s good for making your mind work. Definitely a fun way to keep kids engaged in the material they are learning in school!
