Game Information
Full Title: Trivial Pursuit
Year Released: 1992
Game Type: Misc/Other
Max Players: 4

Trivial Pursuit is truly a spin on what most call the mundane, or the foolish, the pursuit of irrelevant knowledge, brought to a game board, video game and even a game show (by the same title though many others share the same modus operandi).
Basically, it is the same as the original game board you likely have somewhere (I know I do), you choose a color bracket with six slots, enter a name, and do so for all players if more than one is playing. You also set the time and other rules to your liking. You roll a die, and move around the board, answering questions based upon color categories, same as the board game. An interesting thing is the host, that talks like a PCM squeak. When he displays the answer, asking if you got it right, even if you guessed wrong you can still say yes, which will occasionally have him insinuating you should be on a rival game called 'Mastermind'. Get all six slots filled, get to the center, answer the question correctly, and you win! Just like the board game.
The graphics are clean, but nothing extraordinary. The glasses are a bit big on the host, but that's nothing to complain about.
Sound & Music
The sound and music are nothing spectacular, but sound decent.
The controls when on the board can sometimes be difficult; try just pressing up/down or left/right instead of using all four directions.

Trivial Pursuit is a game that would be played again and again - a classic after all.
As it were for the board game, same as it is here; I only recommend this for those who have a decent amount of trivial knowledge and most certainly not to the young. But it is a great game, video game and from what I recall, a great game show.
