New Slant on an Old Game
on 4 March 2005
I was a little hesitant about going for a new slant on a new game, I mean, after all, we all have our favourite (and least favourite!) catagories in the old Trivial Pursuit don't we? After playing the game through once, I was perfectly content with the new question catagories. The questions are fun, and certainly far more up to date than in the past. Saying that, it is possible that these questions are in fact too contemporary, and that this game is likely to date pretty fast.
The new board style is very swanky, and makes a nice change. The questions, go through far too fast however and after one game we found we were breaking into the second pack out of the three provided. Trivial Pursuit really do need to think about increasing the questions supplied, or sanctioning booster packs again. This is why I have given four stars for durability, although the actual game is off course, not fragile in the least.
There was even some humour in some of the questions i.e. "what took the Americans four months in 2000 that usually takes the UK one night"?
