Have you had a “Trivial Pursuit” moment? Got a friend who knows all the answers? Feel inadequate amongst your friends? Then “Trivial Pursuit: Bet You Know It” is the version for you.

Included with this game is a 4 card holder. Each card, when placed in the holder, shows the category of the card. On your turn you may choose from the four categories to answer your question. Then the other players bet (with poker type chips), on whether or not you will get your question correct. Then the question is read and you answer. Correct bets will double, incorrect will lose their chips. You can then use your chips to purchase wedges, or save them till the endgame to choose your final category or question.

I am not the best at trivia, but have found this version of “Trivial Pursuit” to have somewhat easier questions, and the betting aspect really seems to balance out the gameplay. We were able to play with a pre-teen and adults and still had a balanced game.

Think you know your friends abilities? Bet high and get more chips then buy your way to a win! But watch out, because they will do the same to you. And you might just surprise them by what you do know!
