Product Description

Product Description

After 30 hilarious and sometimes controversial seasons of Saturday Night Live there's plenty of material for this great Trivial Pursuit Saturday Night Live Edition game. An interactive DVD will test your "SNL" knowledge with questions about sketches, impressions, memorable characters and more.

Amazon.com

Baby boomers and Gen Xers who are stumped by questions in the main edition of Trivial Pursuit may find this SNL Edition right up their alley. This edition follows the premise of the original game, where players roll the die and move around the board answering trivia questions to score a "wedge" of a pie. The object is to score a wedge from each of the six category areas to complete the pie and win the game. However, the less dry SNL Edition requires players to answer questions about the Emmy-award winning late-night show Saturday Night Live rather than testing their knowledge of random factoids. Players can choose from eight different playing pieces, which are cleverly shaped as some of the most recognizable comedic characters on the show, such as Molly Shannon playing Mary Katherine Gallagher, Dan Ackroyd as a Conehead, or John Belushi as the Samurai Deli owner. The game includes over 2,000 questions in six different category areas, which includes 450 interactive questions located on the accompanying DVD. This game makes for a hilarious night of reliving favorite sketches, impressions, and mock commercials from this 30-season show. --Cristina Vaamonde

The game is good, as far as trivia pursuit games go. I mean, it's of course a trivia pursuit game centered around Saturday Night Live. We found it somewhat difficult, but then, while us players watch Saturday Night Live, none of us live and die by it.

The thing that we all found most disappointing was the DVD. Given that the game is centered around a TV show, and it comes with a DVD that you use to play the game, we all had VERY high expectations to be watching a lot of little scenes from the show, and to have to answer questions based on that. Or at the very least, little scenes showing parts of the skit once we GOT the answer. Boy were we mistaken. The DVD, although it does contain a few portions of skits, and a few sound bites here and there, is LARGELY just the questions being shown on TV, instead of being on a card. VERY disappointing there.

"Trivial Pursuit: Saturday Night Live Edition" continues the line of spin-offs from the popular board game now used to tap into niche audiences. Playing this edition requires players to follow the rules of the other versions (travel around a board, collect pie wedges, etc), but the questions only relate to Saturday Night Live.

Playing the game creates many "laugh out loud" moments, as the architects selected some of the funnier skits to test viewers' knowledge. Many of the questions will result in exchanges where players who remember the skit will fill in the rest of the table and everyone will get a good laugh. Sometimes, the humor explains itself, like during our game, when the question was, "Who played Mindy Cohn in a spoof of the former `Facts of Life' star?" When the name "Chris Farley" was read, the answer set the table on a roar.

As many people have already noted, the crowning achievement of the game lies in the craftsmanship of the playing pieces. Skillfully designed in a manner that nearly rivals those Civil War chess pieces of the 1980s, the little figures exude such a degree of adroit fabrication that many people will want to display them on desks or mantels. Players can select from such iconic characters as Beldar Conehead, The Landshark, Chris Farley's "down by the river" van dweller and my favorite, The Ladies Man (complete with his own glass of Courvoisier).

With all that going for it, however, degree of difficulty really harms the experience of playing the game. Lorne Michaels himself couldn't answer these questions. My family contains many members who frequently watch the show (although one player guessed "Mango" for nearly all questions), but our game slowed to nearly quagmire status, as correct answers were rarely achieved.

We played this game for the first time last night and here are the initial thoughts:

Game Pieces: The game pieces are ingenious! You can play as one of several classic SNL characters such as landshark, Conehead or the Ladies Man. The pie pieces slide into the base of each piece and stay put even when the piece is turned upside down! This is great for us since we sometimes like to stop a game and pick it up on another day.

Game Board: The creativity in the game pieces ended there. The board looks really dated with graphics that look like they fell out of the 80's. They had the opportunity to design a really cool bored and I thought it fell short.

DVD: I love the addition of the DVD for "pie" questions. The navigation is a little jerky and hard to scroll from category to category and at one point, I accidently pressed stop and we had to start over again (and got some repeat questions.) We both loved the feature that you can "steal pie" if the person on the pie space doesnt know the answer or guesses wrong. It makes the game go much faster.

Questions: My husband and I consider oursleves die-hard SNL fans but were really surprised at how difficult the questions were! The game focuses on really specific details, lines, etc. from characters that were not just the mainstream characters. We got a lot of laughs remembering the episodes, but were stumped on a lot of questions. Also, the game includes characters and sketches from the show's beginning all the way to the current season. We were surprised to get a question involving Fred Armisan since he is a fairly new cast member.

Overall: Entertaining but definitely for the true-blue fans. The very difficult questions got a little frustrating!

I got this game from my wife on X-mas. My family was excited to play it that evening. The game was excruciating to play. We are average SNL viewers having seen most episodes at some point in time (there are reruns on everyday), but the questions are TOO difficult. You would have to watch the show 12 hours a day and take detailed notes to get most of the questions right.The DVD only plays a few questions from each catagory so when you use up the questions it refers you back to the written questions. Lastly the DVD plays the same few SNL theme notes over and over again. We had to pause the game to make it stop.

We returned the game the following day.

It's generally hard to plod through this game, even with the DVD material. As an avid fan of SNL, having watched nearly every episode live since season one, I found myself consistently frustrated with the nature of the questions in this game. This isn't a real example, but it ought to give you my drift: "In the 1979 episode where Dan Aykroyd bumped into Buck Henry during the water cooler sketch, what color was the stapler next to the picture of Richard Nixon?" Even if I knew the answer to questions like these, it would not make me feel any better about my SNL fanhood. The most fun we had with this game came when we set the board and pieces aside and read through a stack of cards to find the most interesting questions and answers. Mostly, it was the scene-invoking anecdotal information surrounding the actual question that was most fun, as opposed to the Q&A itself.
