Wits and Wagers at Target!

Help your local game company turn Wits & Wagers into the next blockbuster board game!


Right now is a tremendously exciting time at North Star Games because of some great buzz we’ve gotten for Wits & Wagers:



  • Wits & Wagers won many industry awards in 2006 (see Press & Awards below).

  • The game has sold nearly 10,000 copies in hobby game stores across the nation, making it the hottest new party game of the year. 

  • Microsoft loved it so much that they have decided to release a version for the Xbox Live Arcade in April 2007. 

  • Wits & Wagers tested “through the roof” with the buying team at Target, prompting them to carry it in 61 stores for the holiday season. 

Even so, we could really use your help.  Our biggest concern is that Target will drop our product.  Sales have been disappointing in their stores because many people outside the board game industry have not yet heard the buzz on our game.  Help support our industry by showing the Target game buyer that people are interested in more than the latest re-themed Monopoly!


Ways to Help:



  • Purchase Wits & Wagers at Target as a holiday gift for your non-gamer friends or family.  To find a store in your state, go to www.NorthStarGames.com and click on the top banner that says “now available at select Target stores”. 

  • Pass this email on to all of your friends and family.
