This is a simple and fast trivia game that can be played under an hour. All the questions are multiple choice and can be answered within 15 seconds since there are no decisions to be made other than answering a question determined by the roll of a six-sided die with colored stickers. The game can be played as quickly as 15 minutes if the players choose to end the game by answering just 1 question correctly in each of the 5 categories, or 60 minutes if the goal is to answer 3 questions in each category if 5 are playing. The questions are not too difficult if you know your wines. You can also play in teams if you want more players to participate without slowing down the game. You will then gain the advantage of "two heads" are better than "one" when attempting to answer a question.
The rules couldn't be any simpler. Each player is given their own thick game board which is designed to hold "bottle tokens" whenever a question is answered correctly in one of five categories:
Vine to Vino: Growing grapes, making wine and wine production
Grapeosphere: Grape varieties, their wines, and their geography
Wine Cellar: Selecting, storing, and tasting wine
Wine and Food: Cooking with wine, food and wine pairing, and wine service
Cork Culture: Wine people, business, arts and sciences, and trivia
The category is determined by the roll of your die. Roll a gray and you can pick your own category. Answer the multiple choice questions (many are True or False) and you win a "bottle token" which you then insert into your game board.
Be the first person to fill your game board with 3 bottle tokens in each of the 5 categories and you win. That's it!
