We have a tradition of getting together with family and playing board games on Xmas Eve but have largely been playing the same few games for years. We have tried new games but they have never quite made the grade due to being too complicated, too difficult for some of the family or too hard to play once we have had a drink or two ;-)
We bought this and after creating a simplified version of the rules (girls vs boys, ignore bonus squares, one square per right answer first to the middle wins) we had a ball. We ended up playing this for over two hours including drinks breaks and banter but it kept its appeal because it is so simple in its premise.
The categories are all the kind of thing you think you should be able to ace but there's always one or two obvious answers you forget/overlook.
Very simple, very good fun, very accessible, always feel like you're in with a shot - the perfect ingredients for a good family game.
