Bezzerwizzer: The Game of Trivia, Tactics, and Trickery
Continuing with the theme of trivia with a twist, next up is Bezzerwizzer: The Game of Trivia, Tactics, and Trickery. In addition to being a mouthful, it’s also a strategy-based trivia board game that’s been a huge hit in Europe since the aughts. Bezzerwizzer features 20 (that’s right, 2-0) individual trivia categories with over 3000 trivia questions, making it one behemoth of a trivia game.
During gameplay, players work to answer as many trivia questions correctly as they can. They must first draw category tiles to determine which questions they’ll attempt to answer. Then, they’ll alternate answering questions from the categories they’ve drawn.
However, since Bezzerwizzer isn’t any old trivia game, those playing have some fun tools to help them achieve this. One can lay down a Bezzerwizzer tile to answer another player’s question when they fail to answer correctly, or one can use a Zwap tile to swap category tiles with another player. This is especially helpful if a player draws a category they don’t know much about.
Players will need to be strategic with how they use their Bezzerwizzer and Zwap tiles, as these powerups aren’t unlimited. However, the game moves fast, so they must think quickly about how to best utilize these tiles.
Bezzerwizzer: The Game of Trivia, Tactics, and Trickery can be played with as few as two or as many as twelve players, so it can be perfect for date night or for a big group of friends. Since it only takes about 45 minutes to play, multiple rounds of Bezzerwizzer are definitely on the table. Try playing with different group sizes and see what suits your fancy!
Note that this game is somewhat pricier than the others on this list. However, for the amount of trivia content the game provides, we think it’s quite a steal.
- TRIVIA MEETS TACTICS: Bezzerwizzer is the ultimate fusion of trivia, tactics, and trickery. With 20 different categories to choose from, specialize in what you know best and outsmart your opponents!
- STEAL THE SPOTLIGHT: Use cunning tactics to steal questions from your rivals and swap categories to your advantage. Bet on your strengths by assigning points strategically, and climb the ranks to victory!
- UNLEASH THE TRICKSTER: Engage in clever trickery by fooling your opponents into underestimating your strengths. Then, use those tactics to gain the upper hand and claim victory!
- FUN FOR EVERYONE: You don't need to be a trivia buff to enjoy Bezzerwizzer. Whether you're a seasoned player or new to trivia games, everyone can have a blast by tapping into their knowledge and wits.
