4.0 out of 5 stars Nice extension of the Trivial Pursuit franchise to the LoTR trilogy, 5 Nov 2009

This review is from: Trivial Pursuit - Lord of The Rings (Movie Trilogy) (Toy)
As already mentioned in another review, the primary focus of the questions is on the movie trilogy, not the books. To the extent that the two overlap, an in-depth knowledge of Tolkien lore will come in handy - well for all categories but the Movies one.

The map, characters to be used instead of the typical round playing pieces (Frodo, Gandalf, etc.) and a version of the one ring as a token, all make this a charming tribute to, and addition to the movie trilogy.

If one has seen the three movies, or in fact read the original book, a good and entertaining game play is possible (if you really want to get all the questions right, then an in-depth study of the DVDs, as previously suggested might be necessary) and the game can be completed in a similar time frame as the more conventional versions of Trivial Pursuit.

For people who are very much into Tolkien, this is a fun way to interact with other, like minded individuals, however I have found that the game finds less and less use over time, with the conventional version being prefered 9 times out of 10, once the novelty value wears off.
