Trivial Pursuit is the game that makes trivia an evening-long entertainment. The game contains six thousand questions and answers in six separate categories: Geography, Entertainment, History, Art & Literature, Science & Nature, and Sports & Leisure.
Answer questions like these correctly and you keep rolling the die, making your way to the six category headquarters and then to the center of the board for a game-winning question in a category selected by your opponents--which naturally, will be in your weakest category!
Unless you have a master of general knowledge playing the game, be prepared for a very long night whilst playing Trivial Pursuit. This game has quickly become a classic over the years, but its popularity has trailed off a little in recent times (though it has spawned many themed variants). The players must answer reams of questions, and as they answer correctly they proceed along a board until they have collected all the segments of their wedge-shaped counter. They then proceed to the middle of the board and must answer a question selected by the other players. Unless some of the players are immeasurably smart, a game can drag on for up to 4-5 hours in one session if you're not careful. Overall, it's still good fun though, and by far the best trivia game available to this day. The game's audience can be a bit limited though, with both wargamers and youngsters giving this game a wide berth.
