Advantages: great for disney fans, lovely board and design
Disadvantages: not so good if you arent into the Disney franchise
Trivial Pursuit is a game that has been around for as long as I can remember, I remember when I was younger thinking it was a really boring game as I had no clue as to what the answers to most of the questions were (my general knowledge is atrocious) however when I seen the Disney Trivial Pursuit game, I just had to try it (being the complete Disney nerd I am).
The game is played much the same as the original Trivial Pursuit game, the board has just been spiced up a little and the old boring questions have been swapped with Disney questions! When I first opened the box and seen my new game, well I must say I was very pleased with it, me, my fiancé, my brother and his friend all set up a game quite excitedly and we began play.
For anyone who isn't familiar with the concept of Trivial Pursuit, here is a quick description as to how you play:
Each player (up to 6 unless you are playing in teams, then 6 teams are allowed) is given a token in which they will move around the board after rolling dice, you then answer a question that corresponds to the colour of square that you land on, on the board, if you get the question right, you are awarded with wedge that corresponds with the colour of question that you have just answered, you need to collect 6 different coloured wedges and then they must proceed to the hexagonal hub where they will be asked a final question.
The final questions category is picked by the other players, you get this question right, you are crowned winner and the Trivial Pursuit Champion (and if your anything like me, ready to gloat and make the most out of your glory).
The Disney Trivial Pursuit game follows these rules completely however, as this is a Disney version of the game, it is more suitable for children than the original game. The original game was targeted for an audience aged 15+ and this game is more recommended for children aged 8+, which is probably spot on as the questions are not as easy as you would think, even though they are Disney related and also it takes quite a bit of concentration to play a whole game, which younger children may lack.
The board of this game is really rather pretty, it is just like the original game, except Disney have added their own touch to it, making it look a lot less boring, there are pictures of quite a few of the Disney favourites each square on the board, incuding Mickey Mouse, Timone and Pumba ,Buzz Lightyear, Cruela Devil, Belle, Hercules, Snow White and Goofy just to name a few.
The six different question categories within the Disney version of this game are Once upon a time, Heroes and Heroines, Supporting Stars, Monsters and Villains, Places and Props and the Wonderful world of Disney, you are asked a question depending on which square you land on, in one of these categories, when you have answered one from each, just like I have described before, this is when you moved on to the hexagonal hub to try and answer your final question.
This game is really fun to play, though if (like my brothers friend) you are not really familiar with all the Disney Films, it can be just as hard to answer the questions as the original Trivial Pursuit, so it is really only one for the hardcore fans.
There are two different sets of questions in this game, one for the adults and one for the kids, the adults questions are obviously harder and even out the playing field for the kids to be in with a chance to win, I think that this is a really good thing for a board game as it means that each player is answering questions that are on their level, so adults won't get bored and kids won't be in over their head either.
I bought this game for £30.00 in BnM Bargains which I think was an ok price as I have got a lot of play out of it. You could also buy this in some good toy stores.
We all had lots of fun with this version of Trivial Pursuit and I was really glad I bought it, this is a must have for any Disney fans. It was priced reasonably and it is a great family activity to get everyone together, especially at Christmas time. Overall I would give this board game a 5 out of 5.
