Summary: I love the idea of having board games in digital format. Not only does it save on shelf space, but you can earn Xbox Achievements, everyone use the couch, and adds a new level of gaming. I found Trivial Pursuit to be true to its form and play like Trivial Pursuit would. The questions range from easy to extremely tough, so it's all luck of the draw. The dice seem to work well and stay well randomized. The only thing keeping this from a 5-star review was the animations.
Fun - but get ready to devote some time when you wanna play

Summary: While I consider myself quite a genius, this game is pretty difficult. It consumes a large amount of time when playing with 2 or more people to finish the games (ie get all the wedge pieces) so you might want to grab a beverage and numb the pain. If the game moved a bit faster and the questions were a little less difficult then I would have given it 5 stars!
Summary: we like it very much. we like the fact that the game can be added to with content from xbox live. good graphics and animation. lots of questions seem to limit the amount of repeat questions you get, which is a bonus. overall a good game.
Summary: The game is exactly as expected, you can play the classic mode against friends with an option to pass one controller or use separate controllers. The new, faster multiplayer mode which makes you share a wheel and eliminates sections of the board after gaining pieces is a lot of fun as well and is very refreshing for quick games. You can play this mode in the fraction of hours it takes to finish a classic game.
Summary: Great version of Trivial Pursuit and the new Facts & Friends mode is a fun/interesting way to play and will probably be the favorite mode of many players. A few reviews have been far too harsh over the Geography questions and lack of online play. The Geography complaints are based on questions that ask you where something happen before presenting a map and having you select the area on the map that corresponds to your answer.
ONLY BUY IF YOU HAVE FAMILY/FRIENDS OVER TO PLAY...

Summary: Let's get this out of the way right off the bat. Just like EA's Monopoly for the 360, this game sadly has NO online play. There are also no "bots" or automatic, computer controlled opponents so there is very little for you to do if you are alone. The game is only enjoyable if you have family or friends over to play it with. EA needs to get with the program here and put these games online for users to enjoy any time, anywhere.
Excerpt: For me, Christmas is about spending time with family as well as eating and drinking lots! We normally like to play a game around Christmas and usually opt for the classic board games such as Pictionary or Taboo. However, this year we decided to do things a bit differently and buy the xbox version of Trivial Pursuit. == The Game == Trivial Pursuit is an old favourite I am sure most of you would have already heard of and played.
Summary: I have not played this since the actual board game come out, many years ago. I loved the game then as I do with this version. I love the many different ways of playing the core game. The questions almost never repeat, a few times I've got some duplicate questions. Overall I like the game and would recommend it to anyone who wants to spend the time, with family or friends, batteling it out with trivia. Along the way you will most likely learn somethings too.
