No Excuse Not To Be a Wise Alec™


Richmond, BC – (July 22, 2015) - The wise guys at Griddly Games are at it again. With a half dozen game expansions, that can all be played at once, catering to each players interests and age level, the company’s Wise Alec™ board game may be one of the most diverse, integrated games.

Reisa Schwartzman, president and founder of Griddly Games, explained. “Our goal is to make the game completely multi-generational and interesting to everyone who is playing. The Wise Alec concept is a demonstration of how a great game can bring all ages of people together with wholesome fun.”

As a really wise idea, Griddly added its six different Wise Alec packs to be played with the original, award-winning Wise Alec™ Family Trivia board game, or be played completely independently without the original board game, or the board.


Each Wise Alec™ Expansion Pack ($14.95 each) includes 300 questions with two levels of difficulty. Each deck has the same color codes to correspond with the board game play. In addition, even younger ages can play too with the use of the Wise Alec Junior expansion.

All Wise Alec games come with different educational topics of interest for trivia questions, along with fun tongue twisters, brain teasers, or quick activities related to the theme.

The six different Wise Alec extensions are:

  1. Wise Alec™ Body Works: Anatomy, human body theme

  2. Wise Alec™ Bright Ideas: Invention and innovative theme

  3. Wise Alec™ Civilize This: Cultural theme

  4. Wise Alec™ Nature Nuts: Nature theme

  5. Wise Alec™ Sports Buffs: Sports-related theme

  6. Wise Alec™ Junior: Trivia and activities designed for ages 4 and up.

Playing Wise Alec (MSRP $25.99, for 2-6 players ages 8 and up) opponents have a chance for making wise choices before, during, and after the game. On each turn, players try to earn points as they move around the board answering questions in three different categories. Each question offers a choice of an easy or more difficult question. Players can use their strengths for maximum or minimum risk and reward, but when a player lands on a Wise Alec card, the fun really begins.
