I play an awful lot of games, and love trivia. Yes, this new game is definitely fun...and pleasantly different. For starters, it isn't a question of answering one question and then your turn is over. No. Here you're dealing with seven questions (the Question List) around a common theme, which can be anything. Guess if the seven cities are closer to Washington DC or New York...Or if the seven events occurred during the Presidency of Bill Clinton...Or what sport each of the seven Hall of Famers played...Or whether it was Al Pacino or Robert De Niro who starred in each of the seven movies...Or whether each vehicle brand belongs to GM or Ford...etc. Then you have cards that combine two or more themes. Take the "Claim To Fame" variety: does each name belong to a Hollywood Director or Novelist? Some of these are truly zany. My favorite was a card which asked whether names belonged to Russian composers or NHL hockey players! "Title Twist" cards offer something similar: e.g. Bruce Springsteen album or Truman Capote novel?

The whole point, in a nutshell, is to see how well you do with the seven questions overall. Some are easier, some are harder (guess if you don't know and cross your fingers), but every answer counts: more right answers mean more spaces to move ahead. During the several times we've played already, I would say the average is 4 or 5 right answers out of 7, but it all depends on the players and the themes. And as my smug husband has discovered, it is rare to ace the Question List (7 of 7). Everyone slips up on some question(s), you can bank on it. This makes a terrific team game so pick someone with a different set of interests, just to be on the safe side. There are tons of questions and cards are printed on both sides, so you have two sets. A really great trivia game.

I'll go on the record as saying that, in my opinion, this new trivia game will become a classic before too long. It has all the right elements. The first night I played it, it actually turned into a mini-marathon as everyone wanted to just keep playing, game after game. If you are well-rounded in terms of knowledge and trivia, step right up. If less so, just make sure you have the right teammates. The Question List format is a stroke of inspiration for those who like to see how well they do over a series of questions, not just one. Inevitably, just when you finish going through one set, you will be clamoring to get to your next card. This must have been a labor of love to produce, because the trivia areas are cleverly thought out and the multi-themed questions joined together perfectly.

I got this game on the amazon.com website. It was delivered to me quickly and I've brought it to two of my game groups. It was a smash hit both times. The game is fun, moves quickly and is easy to learn. Here's how it works:

The game should be played by up to three individuals. If there's four or more players, divide up into teams. Pick a game piece color and place it on the start space on the board. You will then get a card with seven choices on it. Most cards have a 50/50 choice option - like "Were these people Vice Presidents or Explorers?" The seven names or items are then read, one at a time. Teams confer and give their answer. A good idea is to have a team captain give the official response. The more answers you get right, the more spaces you move ahead on the board. Getting all seven right moves you ahead seven spaces, but beware. If you get less than three right, you will move BACK on the board. There is a tracker scale on the board. Any game piece can be used to keep track of scoring. If you or your team gets to the finish first, you win. However, all players/teams should get an equal amount of turns, especially if other teams are seven or less spaces from the finish. They should be allowed to try to create a tie.

Some cards will have a question with three or four choices but most cards give you a 50/50 shot of two choices. IMPORTANT RULE - after hearing the question, the player/team can say PASS if they don't like it. If you pass, you MUST take the next card, you cannot pass more than one card per turn. Each player or team can pass a card a maximum of TWO times for the entire game. Passed cards go in the back of the box - the other team doesn't get them.

There are 240 double-sided cards for a total of 480 questions. After using the green side, use the orange side. There is no timer, but if people are taking a real long time, you may want to use a one or two minute timer from another game to keep it moving. A fun game that's challenging and not as hard as Trivial Pursuit. I highly recommend this game for your trivia or game night.

The game sometimes ends a bit quickly if you really know your stuff, but it is so much fun, even with just 2 people

My friend brought this game to our game night and everyone really enjoyed. I then bought and played with a different group and they loved it. It's fun and great to play in teams of 2 or 3.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for a family member. We all played (Ages 11-70). It was fun. We broke up into teams
with all age groups in the teams.

Really have enjoyed this game. My family has played it quite a few times since we got it. Topics are varied and you always have a 50/50 shot of getting each answer correct. My only complaint is that it was so much fun to play that we have almost gone through all the cards. Hope they make an expansion pack for it soon!

This is a really fun trivia game for two or more players. The categories are so varied that anyone can win by the luck of the draw. I love the fact that the cards are two-sided, adding many more hours of play to this purchase. I only hope the developers bring out another card pack--it will definitely be on my wish list. Highly recommended game.

Great game to take on our camping trips. We've about 20-30 board games for day camping, picnics and overnight camping trips each year, and this is one of my favorites.

This game moves quickly and has challenging questions. If you have a large group playing, you will need to play in teams.
