I remember my mum and dad playing this since, well, since I was very little. We finally went out and bought a board a couple of months ago. The idea of the game is to answer six correct questions, each from a different category. For each correct answer, when you've landed on a "cheese" question, you get a "cheese", funnily enough :-) The categories are: History (yellow cheese), Sport and Leisure (orange), Entertainment (pink), Geography (blue), Science and Nature (green) and Art and Literature (brown). You work your way around the cirle on the board, answering as many questions as you can. When you have all six cheeses you try to get ... Read the complete review

Intro This is a classical game for the intelligent one, with questions about common knowledge as well as uncommon and popular culture. It is not a game for kids or young teens but for adults on a Saturday night with friends or family. The Game The object of the game is to collect all the pieces of coloured triangles and then return to the middle where a last question from one of the categories is asked by other team members. There is a dice which you use for moving and a game piece where you put your triangles in. The triangles are coloured after the different categories; Geography (blue), Entertainment (pink), History (yellow), Arts ... Read the complete review

I have been a fan of Trivial Pursuit ever since it first came out and I still have my old dark blue box which is regularly used. I always thought TP was an expensive game, but boy did they know how to milk it. They had this subtle ploy, don't put the price up, just cut down the number of questions. Would those of you who have not been with TP since it first came out be surprised to know that they have actually reduced the number of questions by SIXTY percent since Genus I? The old blue box which I have has 6000 questions, now you only get 2400 and those novelty ones they bring out like Disney, Millennium etc only have 1800, rip off after rip off. ...

I have owned trivial pursuit since 1985 when I was 9. I have always really enjoyed playing it as my family, partner and I are all into general knowledge quizzes. I also bought an updated version about 4 years ago with more up to date questions (replacing ones like Who won the UK Indoor Bowls Championship in 1960!) but which kept the original format and questions. I recently bought my sister the most recent version of trivial pursuit for her 21st birthday. We were both not that impressed. Although the updated board and cute "wedge" shaped question card holders were nice, there were less questions provided with the game, about 1/4 of what you got with ... Read the complete review

Hmm, I'm not sure which version(s) I've played so this may be in the wrong place! I've played Trivial Pursuit (fairly old version) at a friends house before and as a Trivia lover I found it very absorbing and enjoyable although very frustrating if you get a category which is just not your subject! Questions have to be answered in categories of Literature (brown), Entertainment(pink), Sport (ornage), Geography (blue), Science & Nature (green) and History (yellow) - there's no avoiding any subject because to win you have to answer correctly to received a 'wedge' in each colour (category). Sport is my nightmare for me !! ... Read the complete review

|Uberplay Motley Fool's Buy Low Sell High||Kingdom Builder Board Game|
Quick to learn, doesn't take long to play, works well with two
The theme is 'pasted on' and so the game can come across slightly dry and abstract
Nice idea, Rather nostalgic, No batteries required, Not a noisy game, The masks look hilarious!
Doughnuts are impossible to pick up, Masks are too big and heavy, Play board is too small
