Basement Start-Up Primed to Dethrone Trivial Pursuit Most Award-Winning Party Game Brand Launches Wits & Wagers Party at Toy Fair

Bethesda, MD - (Virtual Press Office) - North Star Games is a basement start-up with big dreams: to have Wits & Wagers replace Trivial Pursuit as the king of trivia games. To help catapult the brand to the top, North Star Games will unveil Wits & Wagers Party at Toy Fair this month.

"Wits & Wagers is the first trivia game where people do not need to know trivia to win," states Dominic Crapuchettes, North Star Games’ founder. "That's why people love it. But Wits & Wagers Party has simpler rules and funnier questions, which is why we expect it to become the best selling edition of the game," Dominic added.

Indeed, the revolutionary approach of leveling the playing field between trivia and non-triva buffs has garnered the Wits & Wagers brand 33 awards, the most ever by a party game.

Other milestones point to the fact that Wits & Wagers will eventually replace Trivial Pursuit as the mainstay trivia/party game.

  • Sales have increased on average 150% since its release in 2005
  • Available at Wal-Mart, Target, and Toys-R-Us for the 2012 holiday season
  • It has been translated into 13 languages and is available in over 20 countries
  • Hollywood studios are interested in a Wits & Wagers TV game show

    "Playing Wits & Wagers is just a lot more fun than playing other trivia games," said Satish Pillalamarri, North Star Games’ co-President. "Unlike Trivial Pursuit, you are never put on the spot which can make you feel dumb, and it only takes 20 minutes to play," Satish concluded.
