The book knows all, so if it's asking you about Luke, Leia, and Han Solo, don't go trying to pull a Cliff Clavin with Who are three people who have never been in my kitchen? because the scoring module is like a mini-Yoda. This would make a great gift for any obsessed Star Wars fan.

I bought this for my brother for his birthday and he loved it.
Laura G.
He says its lots of fun but that some of the questions are very very challenging, while others are very easy.
C. Smith
Some questions are obvious, others are challenging, yet fun to think of the answer.

I have to admit that I am *not* obsessed with Star Wars. I've seen Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi a few times each, but the remaining films only once. I haven't read the comics or books, either. So, I went into this expecting to have my light saber handed to me.

That being said, I still had fun with this interactive trivia book. It's electronic scoring module starts in random question mode, which selects questions from anywhere in the book. You can also change the module so that you choose which questions to try. Much better for someone like me who is "familiar with star wars".

The questions range from easy (what color is Obi-Wan's light saber?) to downright difficult. So, I think all fans will find something they like. After a few questions that were obviously from the movie that I got wrong, I wanted to go back and watch the movie again to see what I missed.

This is a great gift for a Star Wars fan. 2,500 questions will take A LOT OF TIME to get through (maybe 18 hours or so) so it's a good value for $29, even better if you get it here for a discount. The batteries are replaceable, so you can use it as long as you'd like. I am only partially through it.

This book is awesome. For all who have ever played Star Wars Trivial Pursuit or any other game and wished there was more, here it is.

This book combines all types of trivia from all 6 movies, as well as E.U. information and real life info, i.e. actors and such.

This book, has, like it says, 2,500 questions. I was amazed at how different they are and how broad the spectrum runs for the questions. Some are short, easy to figure questions, such as changing the name of a character, where others are extremely difficult, like having to know what specific genome of a species a certain character is, or who a certain droid was from the movie.

I wholeheartedly believe this to be the best Star Wars trivia book out, and recommend it for both new Star Wars fans and hardcore fans that know every little nuance of the SW Galaxy.

This is an awesome book/toy. I'm 37 years old and have been a big Star Wars fan since childhood. My mother bought me "Obsessed with Star Wars" for Christmas; today is the 28th and I've already gone through almost 600 questions with a score of only 42%! If you've watched the movies many times and think you know everything there is to know, you may be surprised. Some questions are very basic ("In which robot were the plans to the Death Star hidden?") but others are incredibly specific ("How tall is Chewbacca?" in hundredths of meters). Part of the fun is seeing if you can remember the answers to the tough questions the book has already given you. It's not as easy as you think! This book is very addictive and my entire family played with it together for about two hours on Christmas day. My 14 year old son was especially enamored of it as he loves trivia and, of course, Star Wars. I would definitely recommend this for any intermediate to hardcore level Star Wars fan; a very casual fan might become annoyed at the minutiae and some of the crazy, seemingly impossible questions. I hope that this series puts out books for other TV shows and movie series as well as this concept is a lot of fun.

Note: Regarding a past review, after 600 questions I have not found one mistake. The book's answers seem very accurate to me.

My husband loves all the Star Wars movies, so I purchased this for him as a stocking-stuffer Christmas gift. He loved the book initially, but quickly became discouraged when he couldn't correctly answer many questions. My uncle who's an even bigger Star Wars fan gave it a shot as well, and even though he definitely answered more questions correctly than my husband, he found the questions extremely difficult as well. I recommend this book for anyone who has watched all the Star Wars movies several times since the trivia questions are very specific. Despite everything, it is a cool book, which is why I give it 4 stars.

My fiance loved this book for Christmas! There were tons of questions he didn't know! I love that it shuffles the questions around instead of just going straight through the book...makes it more interesting!

I purchased this book for my step-father who is a HUGE Star Wars fan. He collects all things Star Wars and had to have the book! We were all surprised that the trivia questions were so diverse on all aspects of the series. He was even shocked to find that there were some answers he did not know (which I thought impossible). This is a wonderful purchase for anyone who loves Star Wars and is interested in the trivia from all 6 movies! Even his 6th grade students loved playing with it!!

Received it for Christmas and was blown away of how in-depth it goes!

I pretty much pride myself on being the Star Wars "Guru" of the family, but who can answer questions about what was the name of the company that did the outer work of Padmé Amidala's starship!?

This is definitely NOT for the faint of heart. It took me about 10 questions to even start recognizing anything from memory...

So, you just may find yourself digging in or thinking about purchasing those Star Wars encyclopedias!
