Posted on May 5, 2008, Jonathan Wits and Wagers Hits XBLA This Week; Now That "Scene It!" Controller Has Two Uses
After last week’s XBLA no-show, you’d think Microsoft would be ready to pull something awesome out of it’s bag of tricks, right? Well you’d think wrong then. Instead, this week brings a trivia party game called “Wits and Wagers.” Really, the only reason for this game’s existence seems to be to add a second game to use with that big button “Scene It!” controller Microsoft was so proud of. Based on a board game of the same name, Wits and Wagers will allow you to bet on the odds of possible answers to trivia questions. You’ll be able to chose a bizarre character to take online or play locally with friends. Most of the questions seem to be based on very specific numbers, so you’ll probably make your choices based on educated guesses more than factual knowledge. The game is set to release on Wednesday, so I guess we’ll find out then if it’s anything more interesting than it sounds.
