Product Description

Product Description

Can you name a country beginning with the letter M that no one else would think of? How about Mali or Micronesia? Can you think of a character from Toy Story that nobody else would remember? We all know Buzz Lightyear, but who remembers Wheezy the penguin? Put your obscure and pointless knowledge to the test with this board game version of the popular BBC2 quiz show hosted by Alexander Armstrong. Fight against your natural instincts as you try to score the least number of points by guessing the least popular answers to general knowledge questions. In Pointless a series of questions is presented to the players. These questions have also been surveyed to a group of 100 other people. It’s the players’ job to think of an answer that is not only correct, but also the least popular among those surveyed. For example, if the question asks you to name a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Titanic is not a good answer as 88 people in the survey gave this. Anybody who says The Man in the Iron Mask gets a much better score of 6 points. Any correct answers the survey didn’t think of are Pointless answers and award a most desirable zero points. Who will carry off the Pointless trophy among your family and friends? For 2 to 4 players or teams and ages 10 and up.

I'm afraid I'd have to agree with a lot of the reviews in that the game has been made over complicated and should have stuck to the TV game format. But we had fun all the same playing on Christmas Day but not sure it will be out of the box any time soon though.

The game has two holders for the question cards, but four rounds in total, so the cards need to be sorted out, with all the questions and answers on show.
It would normally be assumed that one person/team would be knocked out each round, but instead there is some system of pointless trophies which we gave up on and just did it as a knockout instead.
It still needs some work, but is still fun to play anyway.

My parents love this on the telly so I bought them the game for Xmas. As a group of adults we tried to play but it was so complicated and really boring. I've never been so disappointed in something.

You need 9 people to make it really work and a minimum of 5 for a short game because it needs a separate question master to work smoothly

Being enthusiastic watchers of the tv quiz, this seemed like a good gift. Firstly, the board is superfluous, all you need is the notepad. One player has to double up as quiz master and read everything out or pass the card round, but most annoying of all is that many of the questions have already been used on the tv show so, if you're a regular watcher, you know the answers that get the best scores already!

What a waste of money.
