Wits and Wagers is actually quite fun. It's trivia but you also get to bet on answers. So if you bet right you still gain chips even your answer was wrong.

I just now added Snakes and Ladders as a possible answer for Chutes and Ladders, and that answer will appear once the new version is re-approved.

The "ounces" in the clue Plantain Ounces is not a synonym of the "gram" in Bananagrams. This gram is the -gram which refers to "something written" not a measurement of weight.
