I don't know Gambit 7 but Wits and Wager is is US and 2006 centric. A newer more global version of this game would be great, but such is not the case right now.

2006 is so 7 years ago.
Time for an update.

For non-US, Gambit 7 is what you want.

First there was Hearts, then there was Spades, and now we bring you Clubs. The suit of clubs finally gets some respect!

I guess we're behind the times. We don't know how to update the questions in a game you already bought. But you can purchase the 4th edition this holiday season with updated questions as of June of 2013.

We don't have an international set of questions, because we license the game to other companies so they can tailor the questions to their region. Wits & Wagers is currently available in 14 different languages. Right now Gambit 7 is the only UK edition, because Jumbo has the UK rights but couldn't get large enough distribution to justify a print run.

I didn't realize it had been updated since then. I was only speaking from my own limited perspective. Thanks for enlightening me.

We've updated the questions 3 times, but there was a lag between two of the updates at one point. It's a lot of work, and sometimes we get caught up doing other things.
