Back of Box - ZX Spectrum (UK):

    Trivial Pursuit
    "What mighty contests rise from trivial things."
    Alexander Pope

    Here at last - the world's most fashionable Board Game officially comes alive on your computer.
    You have in your hands the result of many months co-operation between the originators of Trivial Pursuit and a team of young, highly qualified programmers based at Oxford University.

    What makes the computer version of Trivial Pursuit so special?

    • Sound and music questions - can you name THAT tune? - played backwards!
    • Graphical questions to puzzle and ponder over.
    • Text questions (many linked to graphics and music) to tease and amuse you.
    • The Dice is thrown and all possible moves flash automatically.
    • Over 3,000 questions and "UniloadTM" additional question packs available.
    • Play Trivial Pursuit on your own or with your friends!

    What it retails is the pure good fun of pursing trivia that the whole family (Mum and Dad included!) enjoy enormously.

    • What is Desperate Dan's favourite food?
    • Do frozen peas float?
    • What is Triskaidekaphobia?
    • Which members of the Royal Family can vote?
    • How many golf balls are there on the moon?

    Do you know the answers to these questions?
    If not - who cares? It's all part of Trivial Pursuit!
