Worked for me. I have the 20th Anniversary Edition, the first edition and 3 or 4 others in between.

"Who was the guy that was a friend to the person who saw the 1965 world series from seat 5A section G?"

Now I remember why I hate this freaking game.

Joel Whittaker, now give me my damn chip. ;-)

20th anniversary edition is a bit too easy if you're in my generation. it's competitive for younger folks or older, clueless adults. but for gen-Xers it's kind of easy.
2003-03-10 04:33:18 AM  
The game is alright.
But what use a time-waster
If we aren't at work?
2003-03-10 04:33:18 AM  
easy for baby-boomers too.... no rocker required.
2003-03-10 04:33:43 AM  
Q: what speaks french and likes blow jobs?

A: Moi.

trivial pursuit used to be difficult.

up to genus 4 it was still a fairly challenging game.

then, genus 5 was released - what a horseshiat game...questions dumbed down so that everyone can play, i can understand that, but they completely destroyed any chance of a challenge for players of the earlier releases. way too easy. (kind of like watching jeopardy now...the normal questions are almost like the jeopardy high school questions of years past)

i'll of course buy the 20th anniversary edition...i hope they've remembered their roots
2003-03-10 04:39:39 AM  
w00t. I finished it.

I am so smart.
I am so smart.
S-M-R-T...I mean S-M-A-R-T.

Me fail Trivial Pursuit? That's unpossible!
2003-03-10 04:45:07 AM  
It's easy.
All the answers are in The Big Book of Google.
Much like real life of course.
2003-03-10 04:47:22 AM  
I win!
that was fun!
Did you know that the average American uses 100 gallons of water a day? I got that question twice...
....and Stella got her groove back.
2003-03-10 04:47:46 AM  
Too easy. I won't be getting the game.
2003-03-10 04:51:18 AM  
Where's the part where I buy a vowel?
2003-03-10 04:54:09 AM  
Answered all 6 questions in a row, then i get the game winner, "what was the average age of a harlequin romance reader in 2001-- 33, 44 or 55?"

Faced with sucha question, my first thought was "what the fark", so I guessed 44, naturally, and the answer was... 44, I was right.

But did I get a prize of sorts? ohhh no, it left me wih the deep feeling of satisfaction and an "offer to buy the game now," online even. My name doesn't go up in bright lights, my face isn't on the side of buses, I feel crushed, heart broken even, must now depart to drink beer and wait for a tension releaser... for it's Monday, first day of the week, and that means NEW STRONGBAD DAY!!!!

They should make a Simpsons version
2003-03-10 05:04:27 AM  
If you play over and over again, the questions begin to repeat. By the process of elimination, you can eventually feel pretty smart.

Three apples high?
I had one of those once. Big joint followed by the realization that we were out of potato chips.
2003-03-10 05:07:09 AM  
way too easy in 7
2003-03-10 05:08:25 AM  
Got any fives?
2003-03-10 05:42:32 AM  
w00t.. i so dont know my trivia..... but then again, i dont get out much

thats why they call me the gimp...
2003-03-10 05:45:19 AM  
worst loop ever, sounded like 2 beats at once out of sync
2003-03-10 05:46:30 AM  
Play an advertisement for a 20 year old game. I remember that Smurf one from the original.
2003-03-10 06:18:55 AM  
I love these threads that give farkers the chance to stroke themselves.

I got every question right immediately with my eyes closed before the questions even appeared! What a simple game for a genius such as myself!

2003-03-10 06:31:30 AM  
I love the game, but the online version needs a bit more variety.
2003-03-10 07:04:31 AM  
COLA as a big Simpsons fan my wife's family buys me the Simpsons trivia boxes when they find them. I have the basic set and the Homer set, some of those questions are hard as hell. In the game there is a poster with every character that ever was aired and you have to give up one of their names on some questions. Highly recommended.
2003-03-10 07:07:32 AM  
If that's how easy the real 20th anniversary edition is, I'll pass.
2003-03-10 07:29:09 AM  
I found two errors while playing various Trivial Pursuit stated that the Nintendo 64 was the first 64-bit console (Atari Jaguar is the correct answer) and that "Friday the Thirteen: The Series" was based on the "Friday the Thirteen" movies.
2003-03-10 07:31:06 AM  
can't wait for the International Edition. Like I have any idea what NCAA is...couldn't get past the sports questions coz of the bias.

Love the game otherwise.
2003-03-10 08:20:13 AM  
it amused me for about two minutes. other than that it was better five years ago. it is just too easy now.
2003-03-10 08:27:34 AM  
Another error in the original edition was the question, "Who was the first black to play major league baseball?"
But this is a case of a misleading question rather than an incorrect answer.

Given answer was Moses Fleetwood Walker, which creates a lot of arguments unless you know very obscure baseball history. Fleet Walker played for Oberlin College and made his way up to a Toledo team (Bluestockings, I think) which played in what was one of the precursors to the major leagues. He was a catcher, and if memory serves, he caught for a black pitcher...think his brother played a few games, too.

In any case, you want to stand well clear when telling someone that it WASN'T Jackie Robinson.

Agree with Tokenfemale. Hope they localize this damn thing, cause the online one's got a major US bent. Would love to see US farkers try their hand at the Aussie edition... bring on the Cricket, Prime Ministers and Rugby! Haven't seen an Aussie edition of TP for a long time now. Anyone know if the 1980s one was ever updated?
2003-03-10 09:21:30 AM  
Betelgeux. Ooh. I wonder if I can find that in my backward little corner of the world :)
2003-03-10 09:22:42 AM  
Stupid Websense workplace filter. (grumble)
2003-03-10 09:28:41 AM  
I've got the Trivial Pursuit 1980's (about the 80's, not made then) edition, which is an australian version.

Speaking of board games, my girlfreind picked up Monopoly Stock Market, which is a british version, comes with a nifty little computer gadget, anyone else seen this I hadn't heard of it before?
2003-03-10 09:32:16 AM  
Took me a lot longer than I'd hoped (11 questions in all, last 6 in a row)

I do believe it was localized. At least there is a "Canadian" version. Which is only fair, since it was a couple of Canadians who came up with the game. While sitting at a bar drinking beers no less.

And, yes, it was dumbed down by version 4. That's when Parker Brothers bought the rights and "Americanized" it.

Yoshiatoshi, technically, the Jaguar was not a 64-bit system. It used 2 32-biatchips to simulate a 64-bit experience. Of course, this did not prevent it from being one of the most effective "sucky game simulators" we've ever seen.

2003-03-10 10:33:35 AM  
lol, love that filter.
2003-03-10 10:39:46 AM  
Which team won the most NCAA tournaments in the 20th century?

It's not Duke.
2003-03-10 10:40:14 AM  
Here's something freaky...

The first question that was asked was about a person I actually went to school with.

I heard they made a question about him, but had yet to see it. And then it pops up here.

2003-03-10 10:56:47 AM  
Dammit, I said "fish" and the answer was "goldfish" can't you give me half a slice?

2003-03-10 10:58:33 AM  
Good thing I didn't play this about 2 years ago...nice new discovery fellow farkers!
2003-03-10 11:02:02 AM  
You're welcome.
2003-03-10 11:04:33 AM  
Luckily, the goldfish question came up again in the end.

2003-03-10 11:05:05 AM  
those questions were a bit easy...just woke up and i breezed through that sucker
2003-03-10 11:06:11 AM  
"Oh No!...I'm sorry, it's moops. The correct answer is 'The Moops'....the card says 'Moops'!!"

I used to play the arcade version. Smartacus and Billie Genius were my favorite characters. Can't forget Cleofactra.

Like anybody cares.
2003-03-10 11:40:11 AM  
I've got this edition. Yah I'd say its dumbed down. And yes, there are multiple choice questions in it, which I hate when you give your opponent a 1 in 3 chance to win the game.
