For years my family has played Trivial Pursuit at every family function it seems that some way or the other that game always gets broken out. Now that I have my own family I thought it would be neat to have our own version so a few years ago I was out shopping when I came across the Trivial Pursuit 1990's Version. Of the game I bought it. The version I bought is a special edition as it comes in a nice metal box. I can't remember how much I paid for it as it was a few years ago but it's still available and easy to purchase.
When I bought this game it was only my husband and I that could play it so needless to say it has been sitting on a shelf until recently that is. Now that my daughter is a little bit older and wants to play board games we have brought out the Trivial Pursuit game on several occasions. It does make for great family time where you can sit around and talk as the game is being played just a real bonding time for the family.
As my daughter was not born till 2000 she really does not know the answers too many of the questions that are posed for her and my husband and I have talked about getting a kids set so that she can still play but have questions on her level. Even though some of the questions are way above her she still gives it her best shot and sometimes surprises even us.
The game includes the basic pieces the round pie holders as we used to call them and the dice and the board as well as 2 boxes of cards with questions. The best part of this game is that you can mix and match the different box question sets. As long as you have the pieces and the board you can use any set for your questions. The board does not change from one set to the other. That aspect alone makes this a great game for every one in the family. With the right question sets the game becomes suitable for every one.
As I said before my game came in a nice metal box that will never fray or tear up. I closes securely making sure that all the little pieces stay put sure to not loose any in the process of putting the game up and taking it down over the years. This is a great game that would make a great addition to any family's game collection.
Just one piece of advice when playing this game what ever you do, don't play with my grandmother as she knows the answers to every question. No matter how hard they are, and you will never win.
