Has anyone played Wits and Wagers using only the 1 point chips? I got the idea when watching the review for the party edition. Seems like it would be a lot easier while playing with a large group. Especially since I can never seem to remember the denominations.

I know I'd probably need additional red chips to play this way.

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

Wits & Wagers Party only uses 1 denomination of chips, and I think it's an improvement. But sometimes it's more of a pain with the original, because getting over 100 points on the last turn happens fairly often.

Thanks! Would it break anything though? Seems like it would keep scores lower/closer.

I don't understand how it would keep the scores closer. 100 points is 100 points regardless of whether you use 100 red poker chips (1 point each) or 20 blue poker chips (5 points each).

I see what you're saying. Got confused for a sec. Thanks for the reply!
