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.

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.

Poppycock could also be the card game "bulls%$t". Or, in more polite circles, "I doubt it"
