Product Description

This fully interactive game is based on the BBC2 panel show hosted by Stephen Fry. With team or one player options, the object of the game is to progress without falling into the trap of selecting the obvious, yet wrong answer. At the end of the game there is even the chance to win a real prize by logging online. QI Interactive includes many clips and stills on which the questions are based with Stephen Fry delivering the questions, rewards and penalties in his own inimitable style.

The QI DVD is quite simply the most quite interesting quiz you will ever play. In the large but velvety hands of your QI Minotaur, Stephen Fry, you enter a dark mental maze filled with mystical beasts: singing dogs & cat burglars; Lord Byron's rampant nanny & Adam's flannel. You will also meet Woonsocket. The objective is to complete seven linked strands of around fifty questions each. Hidden at the end of each thread is a reward in the form of a secret letter. You must collect all these letters, a full complement of which forms an anagram. This acts as a key, gaining you access to the inner sanctum of QI where you may befriend the QI elves and win a chance at the coveted title of QI Master itself. Questions are multiple choice and must be answered correctly in order to trigger the next question. If you answer wrongly you will get one last chance before being sent back in disgrace to the beginning of the thread.

Synopsis

The QI DVD is quite simply the most quite interesting quiz you will ever play. In the large but velvety hands of your QI Minotaur, Stephen Fry, you enter a dark mental maze filled with mystical beasts: singing dogsand cat burglars, Lord Byron's rampant nanny and Adam's flannel. You will also meet Woonsocket. Your mission is to complete seven strands of fifty multiple-choice questions. Hidden at the end of each is a secret letter. These make an anagram forming the key to the Inner Sanctum whereyou may win an enormous prize. Or not.Probably not, in all honesty. Because the questions are completely impossible, a child of nine has just as much chance of winning the game as a Nobel prize-winning physicist. The ultimate object of the game is to have fun and to learn something. But if your desire is simply to be right all the time, all you have to do is play the game over and over agin for a week or so until you knowit off by heart. You can then impress your friends and apply for an "I'm a Hateful Little Smartass" badge from knowall@qi.com.

This interactive quiz is seemingly a great conversion of the show to the DVD game format. The questions are all asked by Stephen Fry in full video, the answers explained in a similar fashion. The writing and performance for all the questions (and the wrong and right answers) are very amusing and interesting, which would make this interactive DVD completely recommendable and an essential purchase.

BUT, the game itself has a fatal flaw built in. There are 7 categories with 50 questions to answer in each. When you get to the end of a category, if you've answered everything correctly, but on one or more questions you've not answered with the most interesting correct answer, you're sent back to do all 50 questions again! There's no indication as to which answers are teh most interesting as that's subjective and there's no audio or visual clue that you've done so, and answering the questions again is frustrating as this time around, the long, witty but unskippable speeches by Stephen Fry get in the way when you're trying to speed through the secion again.

This knocks 2 stars off the review for me, because the game is essentially broken and frustrating despinte the fantastic content.

Love the show, love Fry, but feel a bit conned into buying this DVD. Why? The Amazon review states "With team or one player options" - not so! OK, so there could be 1 or 100 people answering the questions, but there is no "team" option. I bought this to entertain my dad while he recovered from an operation - intending it to be a family game with 2 or 3 teams.
The quiz itself is thoroughly entertaining, and I am now bursting with quite interesting, sublimely useless, information.
Entertaining, but don't buy it as a game with teams!

This is a disc that I do want to like, but I must confess to being a little disappointed. It is the kind of thing that, unless you are very deeply into QI, you might want to dip into as and when, but not something you're likely to play for hours unless you've broken a limb and have to sit in one chair for days at a time. (Though, reading some of the reviews on here, maybe I'm in a minority with that?!)

I disagree with the people who say it's 'just random guessing'; often one can find the correct answers by a combination of general knowledge, common sense, and a little judicious guesswork. However, it is almost a shame that one can keep on guessing, and also that even getting all the questions right does not mean you have completed the quiz. I am not that bothered about finding the anagram, and it ain't *that* hard (I've done each thread once (rented it from lovefilm, quickly sent it back!) and got 4 out of 7 letters) but that could get frustrating very quickly, and to find it methodically would take a good deal of the fun out of the thing.

There are seven 'threads', of which the one marked Steely Dan was by far my favourite. Plus points include the many interesting facts and random bits of information you will pick up along the way. As on 'real QI', Fry is an engaging host, though he is far better with Davies and others to abuse, tease, and generally bounce off. The variety of 'no you're wrong' responses is good but the repetition starts to grate after a while. However, some of the questions with more entertaining wrong answers have their own 'personalised' wrong answer responses, some of which are very entertaining - more than once I deliberately went through the answers I knew or guessed to be wrong because his responses were informative and funny.

If,like me, you are an annoying little oik with more brain cells than friends you will adore this chance to further alienate yourself to those few chums you actually still retain
Some of the questions appear at first glance to be quite stright forward, however there is a sting in the tail. Several questions actually have more than one answer and failure to select the required one will send you down a long dark path to oblivion (or at least back to the start of the thread). As there are numerous posers that are only available on your way to these cul-de-sacs of the damned you will find yourself playing on even after completing the main task just to find these tiny morsels of interest.
On a presentation note, Stephen Fry is,as usual, impressive in his manner and has recorded many humourous clips advising you of your utter idiocy.
In conclusion this is definately the DVD to purchase for the nerd in your life.

Hmmmm. Well, I love QI, I really do. It's one of my favourite TV shows. However, I know I am not alone in thinking that DVDs containing QI episodes would be a much more worthwhile purchase. Unfortunately, for some bizarre reason, it looks like the series are not going to be released on DVD, so we have to make do with this.
Initially I was amused by Stephen Fry's banter and the typically quirky questions. However, I got quickly bored with this game. The questions are so difficult that I found myself guessing randomly every single time. Stephen also has a limited number of responses to getting a question wrong, which quickly gets annoying when you've heard him say "oh no, that's quite wrong," about ten times.
The game might have been more enjoyable if you could compete in teams rather than on your own, if some of the questions were easier, and also if other QI regulars featured in the game. Only Stephen is used. The people who designed this game failed to recognise that the appeal of QI is not down to Stephen alone, as wonderful as he is. It is also due to the hilarious Alan Davies, as well as the numerous brilliant regulars such as Bill Bailey, Sean Locke and Rich Hall. It is a crime that none of these other great comedians got a look-in.
