If for some strange reason you didn't get a copy of the board game Trivial Pursuit last Christmas the fret no longer. Domark have just brought out Trivial Pursuit - The Computer Game! It's based very faithfully on the original board game with a few additions and adaptations for the computer.
This is the first time I've actually played Trivial Pursuit and I must say I'm pretty impressed. The questions are very intelligent and the layout of the game is marvelous. I also beat Big Al' first go.
At heart, Trivial Pursuit, the computer game, is still a chase round a wheel-shaped board, picking up wedges at the intersections before racing back to the centre. Answering a question correctly, the category decided by the colour of the square you're on, gets you another go.
One thing that the computer can do that a bit of cardboard can't, is set visual and musical questions. These add something to the game, though I'm not really convinced that identifying a tune played backwards is quite true to the trivial facts philosophy.
