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

The best part is that you can only answer one question a turn (right or wrong) so a "Ken Jennings" can't win the game on the first roll of the dice.
There aren't enough questions supplied with the game, but as I noted above, any multi-category trivia game questions can be used to keep the game interesting. Overall, an excellent purchase for families that enjoy an evening of trivia.
Like the T.V. game show Jeopardy, the questions usually offer hints in them. If you know the answer to the hint, you can make an educated guess to answer the "Knowledge" question. You learn from this game, while having a blast!
We gave this game to our son for Christmas last year, and have enjoyed it many times since.
A great game for family game night!
Soooo much better than junky board games highlighting the latest character or movie hype! This is timeless!
