In the spirit of trivia appreciation, here are some random facts about Trivial Pursuit from Wikipedia:
Trivial Pursuit was invented in 1979 by newspaper and magazine editors Scott Abbott and Chris Haney. According to legend, pieces of their Scrabble set were missing, so they decided to come up with their own game.
Question sets are available for specific genres such as Star Wars and Lord of the Rings trivia.
In 1984, at the height of the game's popularity, over 20,000,000 sets were sold.
In 2008, the Hasbro toy company bought the rights to Trivia Pursuit from Parker Brothers for $80,000,000 US.
The original version of Trivial Pursuit is referred to as the Genus Edition (not "Genius" edition, as a recent visitor to this page pointed out).
Many more editions have been created and sold over the years.
The Trivial Pursuit board game is a lot of fun and is usually available wherever board games are sold. If you've never played, I highly recommend you try it!
This free Trivial Pursuit Blitz game and the real Trivial Pursuit board game are both excellent brain games, very useful for testing your memory for random facts.
