Wine Card Games

Seems like most trivia games simply provide questions and answers. The person who knows the most about the topic wins.  Play a few times with the same people and there’s no hope for all but Mr. Smarty Pants, who wins incessantly, wants to play repeatedly, and who everyone else just wants to strangle.

The same is true for most wine card games, which provide a deck of questions and answers and have rules that amount to no more than counting correct answers. If there’s a wine snob in the room, these games have the potential to make just about everyone feel miserable.

But even worse, many people who are well-educated about wine feel embarrassed playing these kinds of games. They don’t want to look like know-it-alls. They want to have fun, just like everyone else. If they know enough about wine to share their knowledge, they don’t want to do it at the expense of someone else LOSING while  they WIN. Most wine tasting parties and other social gatherings at which wine is being enjoyed and discussed are most definitely not competitive environments.

We at Wine Teasers Wine Game have very purposefully taken a different approach to wine trivia. The rules make it  clear that the trivia is not used to divide players. The questions, answers, and discussion points provide a platform to learn more about wine, to bring people together as they experience something they enjoy. Sure, there will be a winning team at the end of the game, but along the way, everyone realizes that the winning team didn’t necessarily know more about wine. They pooled their ideas, they made the most of  the playful hints, or maybe they just got lucky. Nobody ever feels bad when playing Wine Teasers Wine Game!

That’s our approach. We think it sets us apart from other wine trivia games. Give us a try. We’re easy to pick up at Amazon.com or True Fabrications. Read some of our media reviews while you’re at it.
