One Paragraph Review: Trivial Pursuit
by Mitchell Dyer
Regular rules apply during Trivial Pursuit, making for lengthy sessions with a seemingly endless list of trivia questions. The real joy comes from the fast-paced chaos of the Facts and Friends mode, a unique spin on the classic quiz game that forces competitors to accumulate points that ultimately turn into lives. During the final speed round correct answers keep you alive while wrong ones result in your ejection. Rad bonus cards allow you to steal friends’ lives or earn multipliers, so the variables make for unpredictable fun for four. I’d prefer to pay ten bucks for this mode alone on Xbox Live Arcade instead of splurging on a $40 disc since since there’s no online multiplayer or other clever variants.
