From the back of the box:
Trivia. It's like the weather - everybody talks about it, but nobody does anything about it. Until now. TRIVIAL PURSUIT, the game that makes trivia an evening-long - sometimes, its been discovered, a night-long - passion. Six thousand questions - and, remarkably, answers - on a universe of interests in the Master Game's Genus Edition: Geography, Entertainment, History, Art and Literature, Science and Nature, Sports and Leisure. Players provide the repartee, and the result is a party in a box.
Some sample questions:
Who was Tasmania's most famous swashbucker?
What happens if you get pepper in your proboscis?
What Australian was famous for her farewells?
What literary figure once told a U.S. customs officer: "I have nothing to declare except my genius?"
What Australian state has Mount Bogong as its highest peak?
What country's travel requirements include a $3 contribution to save Nubian monuments?
Answer these and other questions correctly and you keep rolling the die, making your way to six category head-quarters and then back to the middle of the circular board for a game-winning question in a category selected by your opponents.
Your fellow players or opposing teams will try to pick your weakest category and slow you down.
Your going to love TRIVIAL PURSUIT - it's about everything you thought you knew...and thought you didn't.
