If you are looking for the original trivia game that started them all, Trivial Pursuit is the right board game for you. The goal of the game is to collect a pie piece for each color or category on the game board. Six different trivial categories will test your knowledge as you make your way around the circular track.

The board game Trivial Pursuit is different in that each player can choose which direction they want to go on the game board to best help them master all categories. This can be a fun game for groups or just a few people trying to test their knowledge; some could call that a “trivial pursuit.”
The game Trivial Pursuit should come with the following components. These are based off of the original game and don't include components from any expansion packs or different editions.

I like how trivia pursuit uses a wide variety of subjects or methods for answering a question. I had kind of forgot about this board game so I had to reread through the rules to remember all the specifics about how to play.
