I really enjoy my kick starter Vegas wits and wagers!

Have played many times with friends. Several have not played the regular base game but find it still easy to teach. Love that the mat is reversible with the regular game on back. However no one wants to play the regular version after the Vegas edition. LOVE it is 7 people.

The new mat and playing pieces are great but is so large that it can limit where I bring it to play. Example I just went to a OrcaCon, a newer local Seattle gaming convention (about 1000+), and I did not bring it out of my car as it is hard to walk around with.

When you make the commercial version I’m guessing that the mat is going to be smaller or as big as the main game with just a smaller reversible Vegas mat and smaller tokens and boards to fit. This would solve the portability issue that I’m having now.

Or make two Vegas sizes! The new one game with the current deluxe large board plus a travel game size Vegas reversible Wits mat with small tokens and boards. To keep it small travel size have the 7 different color boards plus just numbers 1-7 instead of the great artwork. I’d buy that too!
Just _Please_ keep the 7 player boards even with a smaller footprint! A party game night usual has 7-8+ people. Actually I would love to have the Vegas addition be up to eight people but that would be a design change.

Thank you for a great game!

Jonathan

PS Happy Salmon is a fantastic game that I bring out all the time and is always a success. Thank you so much for bringing a second addition to add more people. I look forward to buying that soon!

PSS. I still hope you will release the Geek addition of wits and wagers!

There is a regular version of the game (I don't know which version) that comes with a smaller felt mat.

With 8 players, just have a couple play on a team together. Wits & Wagers is a GREAT team game, and can really handle 21 folks VERY comfortably, and can take MANY more (as I have witnessed running Wits & Wagers LIVE, our game show version).

I would always say, don’t hope for more slots on the Wits board, be happy it is a great team game.
