Trivial Pursuit Board Games – A Brief Explanation

Trivial Pursuit Board Games – A Brief Explanation

Trivial Pursuit is a board game in which progress is determined by a player’s ability to answer general knowledge and popular culture questions.

The game was created in December 1979 in Montreal, Quebec, by Canadian Chris Haney, a photo editor for Montreal’s The Gazette, and Scott Abbott, a sports editor for The Canadian Press. After finding pieces of their Scrabble game missing, they decided to create their own game. With the help of John Haney and Ed Werner, they completed development of the game in 1982.

An online version of Trivial Pursuit was launched in September 2003.

Dozens of question sets have been released for the game. The question cards are organized into themes; for instance, in the standard Genus question set, questions in green deal with science and nature. Some question sets have been designed for younger players, and others for a specific time period or as promotional tie-ins (such as Star Wars, Saturday Night Live, and The Lord of the Rings movies).

So in summary, Trivial Pursuit is a board game in which progress is determined by a player’s ability to answer general knowledge and popular culture questions.
