Use Once and Throw AwayIf I paid for every useful program that wants $30 or $50 or $100, I'd never be able to pay my rent. So I find myself stuck...I want to help out the hard working programmers of the world, but can't always afford what they're asking. Your approach seems eminently reasonable to me, especially since I frequently find I need to use a program only once or twice.. BTW, downloaded and used the screenshot program [Screenshot Captor] the other day. That thing kicks ass over any other program I've tried!

Today's board game microreview is for "Wits and Wagers".
Wits and Wagers is a very clever mixture of trivia, betting, and social interaction. It's fast to play, super easy for anyone, and easily supports 7 players or more with teams.
Gameplay works essentially like this: On each round a trivia question is read that has a numerical answer. All players (teams) write down their answer on a dry erase card, and then all answers are laid out in numerical order. At this point, everyone can bet on which answers are correct. In this way, even if you have no idea what the answer is, you have a chance to bet on the answers from people who you think might know.
The social element of seeing what answers others gave, and how confident they are, and the range of answers -- is all quite fun. And the strategy and risk taking of betting your accumulated chips is very fun.
I've played this twice now with large groups -- the first time was fun but not magical; the second time -- playing with people i didn't know well, was extremely fun.
Highly recommended if you have a large group of adults. There are special editions for families and kids (though i think it works better with adults).
