Wise Alec Games by Griddly Games


Wise Alec Games are great games for bringing family together and challenging your kids. They make games such as memory for kids and sports trivia for the older kids to adult. During a recent blackout, at my house, I pulled out the Sports Trivia cards and we played for hours by candlelight. It helped pass the time. I didn't know much about sports, let alone trivia, so I read the cards while two other people answered. We had alot of fun and it took our minds off of the present situation.

I got my cards at a reduced price in exchange for this honest review. If you want to find these cards go to
 The seller says:

Griddly Games is turning kids into little Wise Alecs with a new game, Wise Alec™ Junior™.

The new Wise Alec Junior (MSRP $15.99 for 1 or more players ages 4+) is an edition that is set to follow the successful, award-winning family game path blazed by Griddly Games’ Wise Alec ($25.99 for ages 8+). The new Junior combines four game activities into one package: memory, counting, acting, and recognition. Like its older, but just as wise predecessor, Wise Alec Junior is a know-it-all game of hilarity that combines wit, skill, and action. Wise Alec Junior can be played indepentently or it can be combined into the full Wise Alec board game version.

Reisa Schwartzman, president and founder of Griddly Games, said. “Wise Alec Junior™ is a game that can bring multiple generations together. When people start playing Wise Alec Junior, they won’t realize they are learning and working on essential life skills because they are having so much fun. This is why it’s great for kids of all ages.”

Wise Alec Junior is an exciting and educational game pack for children ages 4 and up. The convenient, travel-size package contains 4 separate games that combine memory, matching, charades, counting, and storytelling. During the final step, memory and imagination combine as each player devises a story based on the cards that they have collected throughout the rounds.

A former educator, Schwartzman explains, “Teachers and parents love Wise Alec Junior because it focuses on the development of cognitive, motor, and social skills, which is an essential process for young children. For example, charades promotes emotion recognition, and the story telling promotes verbal and nonverbal communications skills. Additionally, Wise Alec Junior enhances problem solving skills, memorization, imagination, and social interaction. With Wise Alec Junior, parents can aid teachers in developing these skills by making ‘homework’ fun for the whole family.”

There are four games included in Wise Alec™ Junior. Memory is a classic scrambled card game that is simple, yet thought provoking. Matching is a “slap” game that combines counting with quick wit and action. The action game has players hilariously act out and guess clues in a charade-style format. The storytelling portion of the game is a collective process that allows players to take their imaginations wherever they may go as they devise a story based on their cards.  

“As we expand upon the original Wise Alec™ concept, we continue to stick to our goal of demonstrating how a great game can bring people together with wholesome fun. With Wise Alec™ Junior, we are incorporating the younger generations. As always, we try to encourage positive lifestyle habits and good manners throughout the game.”
