I have been looking everywhere trying to find out the EXACT difference between each release without having to buy them all. Not only game piece, board, or marker differences but also how many of the questions are the same or different between each version.

I have seen plenty of posts or reviews consisting of "the main difference is..." or "basically Party has betting..." etc. What I really want is very exact and specific information regarding the different versions.

Does anybody have this information?

Thanks!

None of the questions in any of the editions are the same. There are three different question sets:

Wits & Wagers
Wits & Wagers Party
Wits & Wagers Family

Every couple of years we update the questions in each of these editions. We do this to improve upon the quality of the questions and to make sure the answers are still correct. Many of the pop culture questions are removed for more current content.

Go to each of the pages that are linked above. You can read the "Contents" and the "How to Play" section to answer all of your questions. Cheers!


--- EDIT ---
The Deluxe Family Edition has 1 extra Player Board, 1 extra dry-erase pen, a score board made for 6 players instead of 5, and some stickers to put on the meeples. Other than that, the Deluxe Family edition is exactly like the Family Edition.

Another difference is that it has fewer questions (250 instead of 300).
