Some good reviews from Mother Ship, and a good price from WD as well.

ZinZig HOME PAGE says this requires wine consumption! Win!
But given
What do I need to play ZinZig™?
You will need 2-3 bottles of wine, depending on the number of players or your experience level. For 2-3 players/teams or people with limited wine knowledge, we recommend 2 bottles of wine. For 4-6 players/teams or people who are very familiar with the wine world, we recommend 3 bottles of wine.

not sure it would hold up to any of our typical gatherings.

Sounds like you use the wine in the game for Blind Wine tasting. Which would be fun for our "smaller" gatherings.

Perhaps some monkey will deliver three bottles along with this game for a future event?

Considering this, if for no other reason than find a good excuse to educate our friends a little on wine. With that said, for almost the same price (actually less after shipping), Cards Against Humanity might go a lot better with the wine...

EDIT: Bowtie, I think this game was made for you.

Anyone played this? My brother is a (look, I just can't think of a better term) wine snob and I can't decide if he'll think this is awesome or silly and dumb.

Thanks.

I don't think this is geared for those of us who call ourselves "snobs." It could be fun, though.

..and progress to this. Great evening.
My first introduction to Cards was at a rather debauched evening @ klez's.

He really likes games, and trivia. He just really knows his wines. If the trivia isn't right, he'll hate it.

Not sure I need an excuse to get drunk....on the finest wines.

Fizz Buzz
Game Type: Drinking Pub Game
Supplies:Alcohol
Plenty of people
Instructions
One person starts counting and it moves around the group. Everytime it gets to a multiple of 5 (eg 35) that player must say 'fizz' instead of the number, then it carries on. Everytime it gets to a number with 7 in it (eg 17, 27, 72) that player must say 'buzz' instead of the number. If any number falls into both categories then the palyer must say 'fizzbuzz'.
Heres an example:
Player 1: 1
Player 2: 2
Player 3: 3
Player 4: 4
Player 1: Fizz
Player 2: 6
Player 3: Buzz
Player 4: 8
Player 1: 9
Player 2: Fizz etc..
Any person who gets it wrong in any way (they forget to say fizz or buzz or they say the missed out number) has to drink a designated amount of alcohol. The more you drink, the harder it gets!

You would have to place three separate orders (aka pay shipping three times) in order to do that.

Speaking of shipping, how ~will~ this ship?
From WCC or an unknown fullfillment center where we have absolutely no idea which carrier will be used.

I don't want this ending up on a carrier heading off to an incorrect address that may have difficulty accepting it.

My brother in law is a sommelier. Will this game be too basic for him? Or is it fun even for people who basically know everything about wine?

Judging from the sample questions I saw on the game's website, it would be too basic for him.

Wine.woot shipments take a bit longer than shipments from our other sites. Allow at least 2-3 weeks.

The FAQ:

How long is shipment going to take?
You should get your wine in 2-3 weeks, often sooner. We know the wait is kind of a drag. But it's still gonna taste good (maybe even better), and since we leave it to the wineries to get the wine to you, you can count on their experience to send their wine using their expert methodologies.


That said, it looks like Track by Reference is working for your order so we're probably just waiting on the tracking info to upload.

You can use FedEx's “Track by Reference” feature to get tracking info using your order number. Your order number is on your order details which you can get via Stuff You Bought. Leave the Account Number blank. Enter your order number in the reference box. Next, select your country and enter your zip code. Click TRACK and voilà, you may have tracking info.

Sorry for the extended delay on this order, the tracking number should hopefully update very soon.

Thank you for your ongoing patience while they get these shipped out.

Very disappointed in the shipping on these. I understand that I purchased this from "wine.woot" but it's not actually wine and not shipping from a winery. Any person would reasonably expect a standard woot shipping time on this.

Ordered on 12/5 for a party on 12/22 and tracking says this won't arrive until 12/23.

Note to self: do NOT order from wine.woot again.

EDIT: just ordered from Amazon so that I can have this for the party. Someone tell me what I need to do to return this when it arrives for a refund.

Purchased this as a gift back in December and just heard from the person I gave it to that there were no instructions supplied. Has anyone else had this problem?
