There are tons of questions that range from extraordinary to obvious.
Since this is a team game, the team must - or at least should
- agree on the final answer.
This is where
it gets fun. The debating among teammates can take a pretty good
amount of time as well as be rip-roaring hilarious. Before starting
the game, determine how long each team can take to mull an answer
over. If you don't, you could be there for a while.
Look for the
version of Trivial Pursuit that is geared especially towards children.
With over 30 versions of Trivial Pusuit in the world there is
bound to be one that your child will like. There is a Star Wars

play the game : Every team starts out in the center of the
board. Distribute the pie pieces, one of every color, to each

only stay in the center if you roll the exact number that will
land you in the center. If you roll over you must keep moving
and answer a question on one of the spokes. On your next turn,
you may try again to land in the center. Once in the center, the
other teams get to choose which category your final question will
come from. By now they have all watched carefully and know which
area your team is weakest in. Chances are that is the category
they will choose. If you answer the question correctly you win!
If you don't then you must leave the hub and land exactly again
to get another shot.
