Summary: This disc includes two separate things, an exact copy of the previous release of Wii Trivial Pursuit with the same questions which they call "Trivial Pursuit Classic" (no questions refer to events after 2008) and a variation of T.P. (which does have newer questions). Personally, I found the newer part to be tedious to play and the questions not up to the caliber of the T.P. brand.
Summary: I used to play Trivial Pursuit all the time (referring to the original board game), this was a far cry. By far one of the worst games I've ever played, my husband agrees. Questions are ridiculous, the format is weird. I will give it another shot, if I change my opinion, I will update my review (it's only fair).
Summary: My family and I were very excited to play this game. We were immediately disappointed. The main reason is the font size. It is almost impossible to read the questions unless you are within a foot of the TV and we have a 42" TV. It was so frustrating to our family and friends to have to struggle to read each question. Shame on Electric Arts, inc.
Summary: One word why I am so disappointed with this game- MAPS! I love trivia and was so excited to have this for my Wii, then I played it. I would know the answer to the question, but instead of just answering the question, suddenly I would have to find it on a map. I like trivia, not geography! It completely ruins the game for me. Even if you know what you want to click on on the map, good luck because they are extremely vague.
When a 42 inch TV isn't large enough to display legible text there is a problem....

Summary: While the questions were of reasonable difficulty the text font was not. I have a 42 inch TV and it was not possibe to sit in the living room seating and see the questions. This resulted in sitting in the living room floor infront of the TV like a 3 year old watching Saturday morning cartoons! I would recommend purchasing a different trivia game. Smarty Pants is pretty good.
Trivial Pursuit for Wii is just that, Trivial. Rent before deciding to buy.

Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! ! ! ! Rent the game first to see if you find the cons of the game few enough to tolerate. Trivial Pursuit is an awesome game that I have enjoyed for over 20 years. I LOVE TRIVIAL PURSUIT. So why the 1 star? Seeing that Trivial Pursuit was available for the Wii I purchased it and eagerly played it with my family and friends. After only playing 3 games of the Wii version of Trivial Pursuit I'm done.
Summary: If you can read the producer card at the end of Big Bang Theory tv show, you should be able to read this game. If you have any difficulty reading the card, don't bother with this game. Another sloppy part of the game is the dice rolling noise. It fails to shut off, so you end up with that incessant noise in the background. If you play this in a group, you'll probably turn the volume down anyways.
Summary: Doen''t work, not worth the postage to return it. I wouldn'd reccomend any of the Overstock preplayed Wii games. I lovveOverstock.com, and buy things several times a year, but this is not one I would tell anyone to get.
