Advantages: Educational, fun,
Disadvantages: Can be a very long game.
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 !!
The game is for 2 to 6 players although I've only ever played it with two. It's fun but I warn you - it can go on forever if you're stuck on that last subject which you are hopeless at!
What I found amusing is, during my recent holiday in Canada, I ended up playing the American edition for the first time so many questions - sport and history particularly - focused on the American sports so I was even more hopeless!! It was all Greek to me!! We often had to resort to "cheating" or being very lenient with each other to allow the game to near an end.
Despite that it was still fun, absorbing and educational - a treat for those who love expanding their knowledge of trivia!
