This game is interesting and somewhat fun. I wouldn’t say it’s like Balderdash where your sides will hurt from laughing so hard. Wise and Otherwise is designed to be more sophisticated. The creators really put in a lot of effort for the phrases on the cards. The game itself is not difficult, and really requires more creative minds at the table. You have to come up with something convincing to really throw the other players around you, and if it’s too obvious that one of the answers is not the correct one, the game will just drag and become lame and boring. Other players can use various tactics by voting for their own cards in the hope of throwing others off. The game itself is not much to look at, but it provides the entertainment and slight humor that you would enjoy in a bluffing game. I think we're going to hold onto this one for a longer term because with the right group, this game excels quite well. It's not the kind of game that I would do backflips over, but it's a good game to have in the mix if you are wanting to go beyond the more in depth strategy games and just enjoy some light weight bluffing.
