Trivial Pursuit Steal: Review and Giveaway!

My husband is the kind of person who remembers Everything. Little, unimportant details, statistics, events, they are all somehow stored in his brain.

So it logically follows that one of his favorite board games is Trivial Pursuit. For a long time, I was frustrated whenever I played with him, until I realized that I just need to be on his team. Problem solved! We always win!

I was excited to hear that Hasbro is introducing a new game in their line of card games called Trivial Pursuit Steal. It takes the fun of Trivial Pursuit and adds a new twist that allows players to steal wedges of pie from other players.

The other night, Rich and I broke out the new game. The nice aspects of the game were that we were able to play in a much shorter time than traditional Trivial Pursuit (about 15-20 minutes). Also, since it's a card game, it is much more compact and great for taking on vacation. It also seemed that players could be on a more even playing field, since there are "steal" cards. If you get a steal card, you can take another person's piece of pie to complete your pie.

This aspect of the steal was a fun twist for me, but I will have to be honest and say that it frustrated Rich. It may have been because I stole four pieces of pie from him and won...

Maybe next time we play I will have to shuffle the deck a little more thoroughly :)

Would you like to give Trivial Pursuit Steal a try? I am giving away THREE games to THREE lucky readers! To enter, just leave me a comment telling me one of your favorite board or card games. I will pick a winner on October 17. US addresses only, please.

I was provided a free game of Trivial Pursuit Steal to facilitate my review. I was not otherwise compensated for this post, and all opinions are my own.

Games are awesome!! I love settlers of catan and dutch blitz! Settlers might be a little difficult for young kids, but dutch blitz is fun!

I'm going to throw the gauntlet and challenge your husband to take on my husband:) And you and I can be on their respective teams as moral support.

I'll always have a special place in my heart for Clue...
