X-mas Presents I


This Christmas my parents got me Trivial Pursuit 25th Anniversary Edition. There is really only one thing to say about a gift like that…

Trivia-Tastic!

I heart trivial pursuit. I love filling up my pie with knowledge wedges and questing for more delicious pieces.

Sadly up till now I only had the old school Genus Edition from the 60s. None of my friends were very good at it having not lived through the years previous to 1965. For that reason alone, perhaps, that we were unable to come up with answers like: Gracie Allen, The Crimean War, or Who met Frank in 1950 something? The Answer to the latter was Mutt I believe.

Irrespective, I now possess modern trivial gaming good times.

The pros:

  • Redesigned pies make adding and removing wedges a breeze. Finally!
  • Varied skill levels allow for handicapping of trivial light weights so everyone can have a good time.
  • The ability to challenge rivals to a face off for pie pieces and spite adding fierce rivalry to the game. Granted you could have just instituted challening as a house rule years ago, as massivly pretentious Timothy informed me, but now it has been legitimized in the rules.
  • It is an excellent forum for drinking games. You get your question wrong, you drink, you keep getting them wrong, you pass out and wake up with a trivia wedge lodged in your ear.

The cons:

  • Has a bizarre extra track that can be confusing. Recommendation: don’t use it.
  • Pie holders still too big for board spaces, can cause uncomfortable jostling and stacking during play.

Final Recommendation:

Go out and get some. It’ll be a great time with your friends. If you don’t have friends, get some, or gimme a call and we’ll bond over your brutal thrashing in Trivial Pursuit 25th Anniversary Edition!
