Bite Sized[edit]

Also sometime referred to as Winning Moves, bite size editions focus on a single area of knowledge. Each edition comes with a dice (often stylised) and 600 questions (Some editions also come with a cheese wheel). They can be used either as an addition to the main game in the same way as Mini Packs or as a stand alone game.

In the stand alone version the object is to win six cards.
