Worst rendition of the gam I have ever come across.
Ridiculous questions (it's called trivia, not minutiae) and idiotic animations. What was supposed to be a fun time with friends ended up being 2o mnutes of frustration and boredom.
Way to go Nintendo...you yet again make me regret buying the Wii.
Me and my wife play a lot of the TP boardgames. We saw this at the local gamestore and rented it. It is an all around great trivia game for the wii. I love the different stats that scroll along the bottom of the screen during a game. And the picture questions are another great addition. We are thinking of buying this we like it so much.
Give it a try, if you like TP and other trivia boardgames you will enjoy this.

The question you need to access yourself before playing this game is if you the trivial pursuit board game. If you do I think you will find yourself enjoying this game. Their is lots of random facts in here that make the game plenty difficult. It is slightly easier to get the answers right though because it is multiple choice. Even though on some of the map question you have to pinpoint an exact location on a completely blank map without any state or country lines.
To win the game you need to collect the tiles that we are all used to in trivial pursuit. You do not get a whole tile just by guessing one question right though. You get a third of tile with every question you get right.The game also throws a little twist in their to were you can bet on if you think the other person will be able to get the question correct or not. If you are correct on your bet you get a 6th of a tile peice. Each colour can only be earned by one person, then once all the tiles are collected you go into a final round. For each tile you collected you can get one additional answer wrong. So you continue until you run out of chances and the last person standing wins.
One element to the game I found annoying was the ability to steal peices from other players. You can land on chance spaces in the game which means some random challenge is supposed to occur. What happens though is almost every time its a steal tile challenge. It just made it a little frustrating that you can dominate than have someone be able to steal your tiles so easily. Other things it could benefit from is online play but local play is still fun. In short though if you like trivial pursuit pick this one up for at least a rental.
