Bezzerwizzer takes trivia game play to a whole new level. This fast paced game of trivia, tactics and trickery has 5,000 questions across 20 categories, from "Food and Drink" and "Film" to "Business" and much more. Sounds simple, yet Bezzerwizzer is no ordinary game, it's about as clever as a board game can get. Challenge your opponents to answer their questions correctly and you could steal their points! Teams are asked questions from randomly chosen categories, but they are allowed to order categories, as the points received for each correct answer is increased for each category. Players can then swap tiles and categories with other players. You'll have to be sneaky and strategise to win this game. It was originally invented in Denmark and has proved so popular it has spread around the world. Bezzerwizzer means "know-it-all" in Danish! Age 12 and up.
