Most people know at least a little bit about The Beatles, but not so much that they're getting a doctorate in Beatleology. I've seen that first hand conducting live trivia contests each year at the annual Fest For Beatles Fans.
There has to be a careful balance of questions between those that have you instantly say "I know that," those that have you searching your brain ("It's on the tip of my tongue!"), those that puzzle but surprise you ( "Wow, really? That's neat to know!"), and those that leave you wondering "Huh?" Can't make them all too easy or too hard. No fun in that.
Questions for Trivial Pursuit special-interest packages like The Beatles are even more challenging. The mix has to satisfy both the casual participant and the dedicated fan.
In general, the mix of questions here is a good one. I very much like the fact that they are sorted by category onto separate cards (six questions per category card) and arranged in degree of difficulty (1-2 easiest, 3-4 medium, 5-6 hard).
The categories that are the most fun are those that cover the movies and songs - timeless areas for any fan. Next in enjoyment are solo questions. Because these cover all four solo careers they end up broad enough to be generally accessible. "Albums and singles" are obvious, though to new generation fans singles (and albums) may be as mysterious a concept as a compact disc was to Austin Powers.
Oddly the toughest category is probably "The Beatles in America" because it focuses on a limited slice of time. Still, I often smiled at clever wording in the questions that dropped clues to help a casual fan to figure out the correct answer just by listening carefully.Read more ›
Alas, Beatles Trivial Pursuit was not that clever. The player pieces are the normal pie thing, but the twist of the game is a second piece you control, a pawn. Your pawn goes around an outer track, which features different areas like Come Together, Get Back, All You Need is Love and Ticket to Ride. While your pawn is in one of those areas, you challenge people or send them back spaces. It's interesting, but unnecessary.
It comes with a special die featuring different iconic Beatles logos (Yellow Submarine and pic of them jumping in AHDN for example). Which logo lands decides what level question you get. There's 2 of each level: easy, medium and difficult on each card. I quickly figured out that each card is about the same thing. Like the Hollywood Bowl concerts. Or Band on the Run.
The categories are: Movies, Songs, Singles & Albums, On their Own, History, The Beatles in America, and Movies. The hard ones are quite hard, and even some of the easy ones are difficult.
But everything about this game screams cheap. The pieces are very cheaply made. I feel like the special die's markings will rub off quickly. The cards are not glossy and look sloppy. Fairly disappointing.
However, if you are just a casual Beatles fan, or someone who thinks they know a lot about the Beatles but have only the knowledge that was provided to you via teenie-bopper mag's from the 60's, or even if you are a young admirer that was born just a little too late (like me!) to experience Beatle-mania in its fullest, but love them all the same; this game rocks it!
Yeah, the gameboard is a bit flimsey, and the board pieces are generic to the original game, but so what?! The whole point of this game is the questions! I remember having board games as a kid (especially Trivial Pursuit!) where the boards whould fall apart after two or three uses. Plus, this one has the bonus track that might actually allow you to finish a game in one night! (if you like). As for specialized game pieces?...I hear the Beatles Monopoly game has a pretty good thing going for it!
Basically what I'm saying is: you can't please 'em all the time! I love this game...I'm not the Beatles expert, but I know a lot more than most (one pie wedge goes to who can point out what book Lennon pulls out of a book case, kisses and reads in "Help!" the movie,...Read more ›
My husband and I have placed stacks of Trivial Pursuit questions all over our house, and when we have a spare moment, we try one or two. When we hit upon a question that we don't know, we try to find a moment to investigate that fact and learn more. For example, "What's the most valuable Beatles album of all time?" I readily said, "The Butcher Album." But I was wrong. It's "Jolly What," an album containing four songs by The Beatles and eight (I think) by Frank Ifield. Who knew?
Honestly guys, the questions are interesting!! They aren't inane, nerd questions. They make you think. I once had a geography teacher who repeatedly said, "Look at that fish again." Okay, she was a trifle weird, but I'm pretty sure that what she meant was, "Re-examine what you think you know."
With the Trivial Pursuit questions as prompters, I've re-examined my Beatles knowledge. I've learned about the cover artists who designed the albums, the back-up musicians, and the people behind the scenes. I seen things in Beatles artwork that I never noticed, and I've heard lines in the songs that had always slipped by me heretofore.
Bottom line, people: This game is interesting, fun, and totally challenging.Read more ›
