Product Description

Product Description

This family learning game features two sets of questions, letting grownups and kids compete equally. It challenges players to draw on their knowledge base for answers.

Amazon.com

The Game of Knowledge, which sports Trivial Pursuit-like design and directions, is stuffed with more than 1,500 brain-boggling questions and two sets of cards so that the whole family can play together: one set is for players ages 10 to 15; the other is for ages 16 and older. The goal is to answer one question correctly from each of six categories--Our World, Science, Nature, Sports, Media, and Fame--to earn six colored rings. The catch is that players can only collect rings if they answer questions correctly while positioned on one of the six Knowledge Bases.

The degree of difficulty between the sets of cards is slim enough to accommodate youngsters who want to challenge themselves by answering the questions meant for older players. "Which of these structures is tallest: the Eiffel Tower, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, or the Statue of Liberty?" If you answered, "the Eiffel Tower" (1,056 feet), you are correct. (By the way, parents, that was a children's question.) Here's one for adults: "Which epic poem tells of Odysseus' return to his homeland after the Trojan War: The Aeneid, The Iliad, or The Odyssey?" Your high-school English teacher is sighing in relief if you answered, "The Odyssey." --Cate Bick

While playing this game for the first time, and using less than one quarter of the supplied cards, our family found four cards with incorrect answers. For example, one card claimed that Grand Prix races take place not on the road but on an oval track. Another claimed that radar, not sonar, uses sound waves to detect objects. Another spelled the Ebola virus as "E boli". The fourth card had an answer that was correct, but was not the only correct answer, as was claimed. The makers of this game would do well to hire a fact checker.

As a family, we have spent may hours together playing this game. Many of the questions are answerable by choosing the most likely sounding answer---a welcome relief for younger children. The questions are not so difficult as to frusatrate children (or adults).

There were good and bad things about this product. I liked that it had easier questions for children, but the questions were a big problem. They asked like 3 questions on blue whales, and missed many other important areas of science and nature. I found the adult questions to be laughably easy (there were a lot of true/false questions), or so obscure or unclear that they were not "fair" questions. I think that a game like trivial pursuit while it does not offer easier questions in the standard set for children, has much better thought out questions that are consistent and cover a broad range of topics!

My 9-year old daughter loves the game. Personally I find in infintely better than the awful trivial pursuit but I still think it could be better: the science questions are generally too easy (my kids get the adult questions with ease) and they are sometimes flawed or unclear. There is a fair bit of content that is strongly biased to US culture, especially the sports stuff, and I find it the least appealing part of the game. The board itself could be better but it's fairly irrelevant since it just provides an excuse to ask the questions. Overall the concept is good and it's one of the better games of its type, but the questions could be better. It clearly has educational value and little or no downside.

This has got to be the worst game I have ever purchased. I was not impressed with suicide questions and questions about hard rock bands etc., my children had not even a clue who these people were. I thought I would like the fact that their were 2 sets of questions. Family Trivial Pursuit would be a better choice.
