Trivia Board Game
Hasbro Gaming Trivial Pursuit Master Edition Trivia Board Game for Adults and Teens Ages 16 and Up(Amazon Exclusive)
Trivia Board Game are amazing. I have fond memories of playing the original Genus Edition of this game with my family over Christmas and decided that this year we would get an updated version – mainly because I have no idea where the original version is anymore, I haven’t seen it for about 15 years but it must be in the house somewhere…
Delivery was within 23 hours of making the purchase so that made me happy and I could not wait to get playing it. Unfortunately my 26 year old son and husband had other ideas so I had to suffer through a couple of other games first but it was well worth the wait.
A good range of questions in categories that are slightly different to the original. The board has been updated too with the main category hubs now having tiny illustrations instead of a solid colour that represent the theme of that category. Really they are all general knowledge but some are WAY harder then others and some severe guessing went on. Game play lasted about an hour with the 3 of us – but that could have been due to the other half’s lucky rolling to keep landing on the hubs.
The pie pieces have been redesigned and no longer form a flat piece, instead a completed wheel now has a pleasant rounded look to it and no more shaking and tapping to get a stuck piece out when you want to play as your favourite colour again. There is a better distinction between the category colours on the revamped board too which meant we argued less about whether it was orange or brown that we were on (always a problem on the original under orangey hued domestic lightbulbs).
The inclusion of a timer is a good idea but not one that we utilised during the game. The timer lasts for around 30 seconds and we will no doubt use it for other times games rather than this one.
If you like quiz games then you really can’t go wrong with this one for the slightly older family or a gathering of friends.Promised Review By Midgebear
