Product Description

Triviathon is an exciting trivia game which allows anyone to compete and win without ever having to know the answer to a question! Old or young, smart or dumb -- Triviathon's for everyone.

From the moment you open the game, everyone becomes involved (dumbest player goes first). Unique to Triviathon is that every playing piece has a character identity assigned and one special move that character is allowed to use to his/her advantage during the game. For the first time, your chosen playing piece (red, blue, green, yellow... 12 in all) will actually matter in the game! We believe everyone has a talent, and the game combines the physical, cognitive and social talents of each individual player.

Move at speeds of 0, 1, 2, or 3 spaces based on trivia questions you don't even have to know the answers to -- Just answer A,B,C, or D!


How many spaces do you want to move?
A. The number of countries that border the Sargasso Sea
B. The number of hearts in an octopus
C. The number of people named Oscar to have ever won an Oscar
D. The number of dogs that survived the Titanic

To what colored space do you want to move?
A. The color of the dress Pebbles Flintstone usually wore
B. The color celebrated by Protestants in Northern Ireland on July 12th
C. The color of the lowest valued balls in a game of snooker
D. The color of the star that appears on the Vietnam flag

No. 1 Party Game
February 25, 2010

I just found out that the December issue of GAMES Magazine ranked Triviathon as the no. 1 Party Game in the U.S. and no. 2 worldwide. Cool.

Triviathon is a great game for family night or a party.

This game will have everyone making up cheers, arm wrestling, doing pushups, singing, dancing and trying to cheat or make everyone laugh depending upon which character they choose to be. This game will get everyone at the party involved and having fun.

One of the best things about this game is that even though it's a fast paced trivia game, you don't have to know the answers to play or even win. Because of this all ages can play together and no one ends up feeling "dumb". It's perfect for families to play together and it's a blast to play with friends.

I think its one of the best games that I have ever played and I would definitely recommend it.

A bit disappointing
January 28, 2011

The idea sounds really good, but for some reason it just does not come together. If you have a lot of players then there is way too much downtime. Then if you have too few, you feel more stupid doing the silly actions. I just wished the mechanics came together a little better (since both are really interesting), but I think this is one you can skip.
