Tim & I love playing games especially fun games such as Trivial Pursuit! This is the perfect gift for married couples or a college student. I don't know too many people who don't like to play games & I know this game is a crowd favorite. I just don't like playing with Tim because he always wins & then rubs it in..I will admit I am a sore loser :(

Check out my other Hasbro Games Reviews! I also wanted to mention that they have Trivial Pursuit for the XBox 360, Playstation 2 & 3 and Wii!

So do you like playing games such as Trivial Pursuit? Are you a good loser or a sore loser such as myself? :)

My family is coming up for Christmas this year and she loves playing board games. But they get tired of the same person winning all of the time (me). Trivial pursuit people have really mixed things up with this edition, and it sounds like it will spread the wins around. (so maybe I'll only win half of the time)

This is awesome. I love playing board games and soon my husband and I might be without a TV so this is a great idea for some quality entertainment!

This is my kind of Trivial Pursuit! The original version (80's edition) is so gosh darn hard, I NEVER answered one question right. I honestly believe I may actually have a chance to win a game, haa-haa-haa!
Thank you for the excellent review about this game, I'm putting it on my Christmas list this year.

I think the new trivial pursuit game has an interesting twist by betting on what you think your friends know - It looks like a lot of fun!

I love playing games like Trivial Pursuit, probably because I usually beat my husband! He's definitely a sore loser, though, so we don't get to play often!

I love to play games and am usually a good loser. What a great gift this would be for the person who has everything!
