Chalk up another use for the Xbox Live Vision cam, as well as Scene It‘s Big Button Pad with the release of this week’s one Xbox Live Arcade game, Wits & Wagers (800 Microsoft Points). If it weren’t for Jonathan pointing it out, I’d never know that the game is inspired by a board game of the same name, but what I do know is that the XBLA version contains 700 questions, online play, and it claims to contain up to 25 hours of gameplay, although I’d attach a huge “YMMV” sign to that statement.

From having watched a trailer, I’ve come away with two thoughts. One, this game has “DLC incoming” written all over it.

Two,  why are the characters just randomly jutting around? I know the Xbox.com page says they’re supposed to be dancing, but this is like Elaine-little-kicks dancing. Sweet fancy Moses!

Oh, and here’s a freebie answer to the question above: it’s 1793. See, it helps to be a history buff sometimes. Or to have quick and easy access to Google.
