Reviewers Experience

Many editions of Trivial Pursuit have been released over the years.  At last a brand-new version has just been launched specifically aimed at Gen X and Gen Y trivia buffs and it’s totally awesome!

Trivial Pursuit: 2000s Edition has the same vibe as the much-loved classic game but includes questions about news, events, celebs, logos, social media, sports, landmarks, pop culture icons and more from the year 2000 to today!

Opening the familiar large circular game board the first thing that struck me was the super bright coloured pieces.  True to form with Trivial Pursuit, all the pieces for the game are tip-top quality.

The game board is divided into six major sections for each category; Places (blue), The Arts (coloured purple), Entertainment (coloured pink), Science & Tech (coloured green), Events (coloured yellow), and Sports & Hobbies (coloured orange).

Unlike the traditional Trivial Pursuit game of the 80’s where all the questions are in a single box, Trivial Pursuit: 2000s Edition has a quality black plastic card holder for each set of category cards.  These cardholders cleverly interlink together to form a circle and then slot perfectly into the centre of the board.

The game consists of the gameboard, 300 cards (50 cards for each category), 6 cardholders, 6 wedge holders, 36 wedge pieces, a label sheet and 1 custom die.

The rules of Trivial Pursuit are simple. Each player receives a circular wedge holder.  The aim of the game is to be the first player to travel clockwise around the board and back to Home base, answering questions from each category correctly, and collecting a wedge of each colour to fill the wedge holder.

It sounds straightforward…


Trivial Pursuit: 2000s Edition has added a new strategic twist!

Unlike previous versions of Trivial Pursuit, in Trivial Pursuit: 2000s Edition when players are asked questions, they can choose to either answer the questions themselves, or STUMP the other players if they think they won’t know the answer.

If player/s chooses to STUMP other players, and the other players do not know the answer or answer the question incorrectly, the player/s score a wedge.

Although the questions are from 2000 to today, Trivial Pursuit: 2000s Edition is suitable for teens to adults (16+ – 99 years).

I love the flexibility of this game.  It can be played with individual players or in groups/teams. I prefer to play this game in groups, as it is really fun to nut out questions with others (extra brain power!) while eating snacks.

With 300 cards containing six questions each – there are 1800 curly questions to crack! phew!

Trivial Pursuit: 2000s Edition is fun and the perfect game for teens to play when hanging out with friends.  It is also the perfect gift for that person – teen to adult, who is hard to buy for and has everything. #awesome!
