Trivial Pursuit Family Edition
Advantages: This is a fun and educational game that adults and children can play
Disadvantages: The question card holders are not very stable
WHAT IS TRIVIAL PURSUIT FAMILY EDITION?
It is an edition of the game that has got a selection of questions for adults and children. The adults questions are hard like in the normal game but the questions for children are easier.
HOW DO YOU PLAY TRIVIAL PURSUITS FAMILY EDITION?
You each choose a colour and roll the dice to go round the board. When you land on a square you have to answer a question based on whatever colour you have landed on. There are 6 subjects with questions including sports, entertainment, geography and others. If you get the question right you get a wedge to go in your counter and the first person to fill their counter up is the winner.
WHAT I THINK
I bought this so that our daughters could play with us because my husband and I both enjoy Trivial Pursuits. My daughters are 6 and 8 so the original game was too hard for them, I like that there are 2 sets of questions because if I land of sports I ask for a childs question and then I have a chance of getting it right. Some of the children's questions are very hard though and in my game one of them gives an incorrect answer and I expected better than that from Trivial Pursuits.
The board is very good and as easy to travel round as the original game, the question card holders are not very stable though and they fall over and spill all of the cards out if you do not put them down carefully. The cards are marked so that you know straightaway if you are picking an adult or child's question card up and that is good because it means children can get their own without having to ask do too much help.
WHAT MY DAUGHTERS THINK
Both of my daughters like Trivial Pursuits Family Edition very much and they play with us adults or on their own just using the children's cards. There are sometimes some arguments when they do not like the question they have been given and my 8 year old says it is unfair to be asked questions from before they were born. It is easier for her to answer the questions because my other daughter is nearly 7 and hasn't covered many of the topics at school yet. My youngest daughter does not understand properly about landing on the colours and she wants to choose her own category.
They have fun playing this edition of Trivial Pursuits but it is not the sort of game that makes them laugh and enjoy themselves, it is more educational and gets them to think and be competitive between them.
This family edition of Trivial Pursuits costs £29.99 from Amazon. There are 400 questions in total but you can are questions from other editions for a bigger selection.
4 Dooyoo Stars.
Summary: This is a fun game and a good edition to buy if you have got children
