Trivial Pursuit by Hasbro - Review with GiveawaySaturday, November 06, 2010
This giveaway is now closed.
A winner has been selected.
So what's the point in collecting chips? It's funny you should ask. You see, having many chips in your possession gets you closer to winning. You can use these chips to buy wedges! That's right! You no longer have to dread answering questions in that one category that stumps you all the time (mine would be geography... and history... and sports... and...) Just save up your chips and buy the wedge instead! In essence, you can buy all the wedges and will only need to answer one final question in order to win the game. You would have to be pretty confident in how well you know your friends in order to win enough chips. But you can still earn wedges by correctly answering a question on your turn. They have also added a variety of question styles including image and multiple choice to appeal to multiple intelligences.
Here are the questions in each category for the topic "Flowers" just to give you an idea:
Geography:What country suffered a major economic crash in the 17th century after the price of tulip bulbs dropped radically?
Entertainment:What flowering plant plays a pivotal role in Spike Jonze's film adaptation?
History:What country suffered a series of civil wars collectively known as the Wars of the Roses?
Ats and Literature:What artist famously painted the serious entitled "Water Lilies"?
Science and Nature:What kind of flower is this?Sports and Leisure:In the children's game "Ring Around the Rosie," what are the pockets full of?
(I know this one!)
On Thanksgiving this year, my husband and I played a round of Bet You Know It with his two sisters. As soon as I pulled out the chips, the game was on! It felt fast-paced simply because everyone was engaged during each player's turn. Every bet that was placed revealed how much (or how little) faith we had in each player's ability to answer the question. It was a lot of fun! Until I lost. And just for the record, my sister-in-law, who bought most of her chips, lucked out with some of the easiest questions ever. No word of a lie. Needless to say, we are due for a re-match.
If you're as competitive as me, you can play in the online Trivial Pursuit You vs. YouTube challenge. The game is pretty much the same and just as fun. (It's also a great way for me to practice before challenging a prior opponent, whom shall remain nameless.) You can also visit Hasbro.EA.com to play Trivial Pursuit on a variety of gaming platforms.
Trivial Pursuit: Bet You Know It is available at Real Atlantic Superstore, Real Canadian Superstore, Toys R Us, Walmart and Zellers. I have also seen it at Chapters for $29.99. Availability and pricing may vary by retailer.
One reader will win their own Trivial Pursuit: Bet You Know It game, just in time for the holidays.
