Trivial Pursuit 2000s Review (Hasbro)

Trivial Pursuit 2000s
What It Is

The 2000s only began 16 years ago. Surely you can remember everything that's happened so far, right? Put your knowledge to the test with the game Trivial Pursuit 2000s. The gameplay is similar to that of other Trivial Pursuit games in that you must answer trivia questions to earn colored wedges, but the trivia in this game is about things that happened from the year 2000 to the present day.

On your turn, roll the die and move clockwise around the board that many spaces. The color of the space you land on determines which card category you go for on that turn. Categories include Places, The Arts, Entertainment, Science & Tech, Events, and Sports & Hobbies. Before reading a question on the card, you must decide whether to stump the other players or answer a question yourself.

If you choose to stump, you read out the top question on the card, and the other players must reach a unanimous answer. If they get it correct, you stay where you are, but they all get to move forward one space. If they answer wrong, you get to take a wedge of that category's color and move to that color's Home Space.

If you choose to answer the question yourself, the player to your right reads the top question on the card, and you get to take a wedge of that color and move to its Home Space if you answer correctly. If not, you don't do anything.

Some of the spaces are Wheel Spaces, which means you get to pick a category of any color. You also get to choose whether to stump or answer.

Be the first player to circle the game board once, collecting every color wedge along the way, and get back to your personal Home Space. After you return, you must correctly answer a final question to win.

Is It Fun?

If you like playing trivia games and are a fan of the Trivial Pursuit series of games, then you'll like this brand new game. We like that along with new trivia content, this game also has a few new rules that give the 30-year-old Trivial Pursuit brand an upgrade and make the gameplay a little more competitive. This game will be fun to break out at your next game night, and it will be especially fun to test how much you know and remember from the past 16 years.

Who It’s For

Trivial Pursuit 2000s is for two to six players ages 16 and up. It's going to be fun for people who like playing trivia games and who like the Trivial Pursuit games. While a 16-year-old could play this game, it's probably going to be somewhat easier for people who were not babies in the year 2000 to answer questions pertaining to the earlier part of the game content's 16-year span. (This game might also make you feel old if you were not a baby in the year 2000.)

What To Be Aware Of

The game comes with a gameboard, 300 cards (50 of each category), six cardholders, six wedge holders, 36 wedges, a custom die, and a label sheet.

Trivial Pursuit has been around for more than 30 years, but this game has rules that are different from older versions of the game.
