There definitely isn't any sort of penalty for players who do not purchase Magic Wands. Magic Wands are a boost, however, and can be used by an opponent to gain an advantage. Without using wands, the key is to be quicker than your opponent so you score more points. Also, depending on how competitive you want to play, you could opt to end the game early if you have a healthy lead that you don't think your opponent can catch up to in the allotted time.
