Relive the '80s, Trivia Style
From the game pieces to the trivia cards, every aspect of Scene It? has been "80s-fied." The game begins with players choosing one of four collectible tokens to represent their team. Sculpted out of metal, these tokens have been modeled after some of the '80s' most recognizable cultural artifacts: a cassette tape, a joystick, a bulky handheld phone, and a keytar. The game board is collapsible and features two sizes, giving you the option of playing a 15-minute quick game or a 40-minute extended game.
Teams advance around the board by answering two types of questions: traditional trivia cards and DVD-based puzzles. The trivia cards, which resemble what you might find in Trivial Pursuit, come in three different categories: green "Take Three" questions, orange "Songs, Slogans and Sayings" questions, and yellow "Pop Culture" questions. They vary in difficulty, and some of the tougher questions are challenging enough to stump even the most loyal '80s enthusiasts.
The main attraction, however, is the interactive DVD. Featuring hundreds of video clips, sound bites, and images from the '80s, the DVD challenges players to solve brain-teasing puzzles. With a variety of different puzzle categories, the DVD puts your knowledge of '80s to the test. Categories include "Distorted Reality," where players must identify a character based on a distorted image, and "Spellbinders," which challenges players to decode a secret message.
Fun for the Whole Family
The DVD has been designed to resonate with children of the '80s. You'll relive the radical fads of hair metal and pop rocks, hear your favorite '80s music, and watch video clips of classic '80s media moments.
With hundreds of questions, '80s Scene It? has something for everybody. The difficulty is also varied enough to keep everyone engaged -- from '80s cultural scholars to casual fans. Also, some of the video puzzles are completely self-contained, so even those who are too young to remember the '80s can participate in the game
