TOS Review: Wise Alec Civilize This!

We are total history buffs in this house. We also love a good game. So when I saw Wise Alec Civilize This! by Griddly Games in the TOS Homeschool Crew cue, I was totally excited. I headed over to check it out and got even more excited!! I just knew this would make a great Fun Friday activity in our house.
In the Wise Alec™ Family Trivia Games players strive to become the Wise Alec, scoring the most points by answering questions correctly. Easy and hard questions allow for history buffs and elementary students to play together. Civilize This! can be played as a stand alone game or an add on to expand the original Wise Alec™ Family Trivia Games.

Who Can Play? 
The age range for Wise Alec™ Civilize This! is for 2-6 players, ages 8 and Up. It is fun for kids as well as competitive adults ( parents!)  
What's It Gonna Cost Me? 
You can purchase all the Griddly Games through these retailers.

Other Products 
Griddly Games has a variety of educational games including the original Wise Alec™ Family Trivia Game. Check them all out on the Griddly Games website! 

Check It Out
The rules are available for download on the website. This is especially helpful for those families who tend to lose directions (like us!)

Final Word
My youngest is pretty advanced for his age (almost 8.) He had a bit of trouble with this game since we haven't covered a variety of years in social studies yet. (Our social studies curriculum starts with the ancients and moves up through the ages. If you have only covered ancients and the US like we have, it may be better to wait a few years on this game.)

The Wise Alec™ Family Trivia Games are perfect for vacation and travel (even camping) since they are compact and easy to shove in your duffel bag or backpack!
