This is not the only 80s related game on the market. There is "The 80s Game," "Vh-1/Targets We Are The 80s" board game and "Name That Tune 80s Edition."
How does Trivial Pursuit 80s Edition measure up?
The game is nice. When you open the box you find the neatly folded game board. There are four player pieces--a care bear looking bear, a personal computer, a CD and a Trapper Keeper. There is also one die and the other small pieces used with the board game.
Four sets of trivia cards are included. The question categories include Headlines, TV, Movies, Music, Sports & Leisure, and Wild Card.
I will say the questions are better than they are in the I Love The 80s Game. The questions are challenging and varied in nature.
Here are a few sample questions-
"What British hair band topped the chart only one time with "Here I Go Again?" (music)
"What Aaron Spelling show was slated to star Bette Davis in her first weekly series until she took ill and was replaced by Anne Baxter?" (TV)
"What former Speaker of the House cashed in on his celebrity by appearing in ads for American Express and Miller Light?" (WC)
The game also comes with a travel game. The travel game features questions from Trivial Pursuit volume 6 which isn't 80s related.
In the age of Scene It, Trivial Pursuit 80s Edition is essentially another board game--except with 80s related questions.Read more ›
But what good is it to have a game and no one to play with? See, I tend to clean up when it comes to Trivial Pursuit Genus Edition and, alas, no one will play with me! However, my husband agreed that he would, indeed, play the 80's version with me, especially since we were in the midst of this glorious decade from the ages of 10-19.
Can you believe that my rascally husband beat the pants off me the first time we played it?! The reason I mention this is because I feel that the 80's version of Trivial Pursuit will appeal to anyone who loves the decade of decadence, even if they aren't trivia (or board game) enthusiasts like my husband.
Not surprisingly, the packaging is excessive: rather than include the four stacks of cards in the questions box, they are individually nestled. There are four decorative game pieces straight from the 80's: a caramel colored Care Bear with a red and pink heart on its stomach, an old fashioned computer, a CD, and a purple Mead Trapper Keeper (OMG, remember those?!). The board is formatted like the Genus Edition, except this one has wild fluorescent colors and different categories. Game play, however, is exactly the same: work your way around the six category "stations" to earn colored "pie slices", then enter the center hub on an exact count--answering, correctly, a question chosen from the category of the opponents choice.Read more ›
We got it for Christmas and played 4 times between Christmas and new year and the new game pieces for this version are a brilliant addition.
Given that the Trivial Pursuit game itself is an 80s icon, I found it somewhat ironic that Hasbro felt the need to update the look of the game, although the new game pieces are cool (remember Trapper Keepers?). Unlike other Trivial Pursuit versions, only one box of questions is included here, which was somewhat inconvenient, as you have to keep constantly passing it back and forth. The categories have been updated too: instead of a single "Entertainment" category, you get three separate ones here, Television, Movies, and Music, plus the standbys of Headlines, Sports & Leisure, and Wild Card. Most of the questions were a lot of fun--it was great to reminisce about things we had nearly forgotten! However, as other reviewers have mentioned, the difficulty level of the questions varied greatly. The Music ones in particular tended to be on the easier side, yet some of the Sports questions were completely obscure. This has made the game drag a bit at times, especially when we've played with others who are less familiar with the 80s.
Although this game could've been better, overall, we definitely have enjoyed it each time we've played. So, if you spent your formative years in the 1980s like we did, you're sure to have fun with Trivial Pursuit Totally 80s too!
