Trivial Pursuit Board Game: A Summary

  • Trivial Pursuit is a board game that tests players' knowledge and ability to answer questions about popular culture and trivia.
  • The game was created in Montreal, Quebec, in 1979 by Chris Haney and Scott Abbott. It was released in 1981.
  • The game's objective is to collect all six wedges from each "category headquarters" space, and then return to the center "hub" space to answer a question in a category selected by the other players.
  • The game has six categories: history, science and nature, entertainment, sports and leisure, geography, and arts and literature.
  • Several themed editions have been released, including Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Saturday Night Live.
  • As of 2014, Trivial Pursuit had sold over 100 million games in 26 countries and 17 languages.
  • The playing pieces are round and divided into six sections like pie wedges. A small plastic wedge can be placed into each of these sections to mark each player's progress.
  • Players move their pieces around a board which is shaped like a wheel with six spokes, rolling a single die to determine how far to move.
  • The player is asked a question in the category corresponding to the color of the space they land on. A correct answer allows the player to continue their turn.
  • Other spaces on the board include "Roll Again" spaces and the hub space. Landing on the hub space allows a player to answer a question in the category of their choice as long as they do not yet have all six wedges.
  • There are over 100 different editions in different languages that have been printed.
  • Legal action was taken against the game's creators. Fred L. Worth, author of The Trivia Encyclopedia, filed a $300 million lawsuit against the distributors of Trivial Pursuit. David Wall of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, also launched a lawsuit against the game's creators.
