[The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was not convincing people he didn't exist, but convincing them that he was God.

I aways like a game of trivial persuit, but especially recently, as it appears that myself and the wife are pretty well matched. I am going to try to report on every game of this we play together, and would like to see if everyone else knows the answer. The edition is the original, so some of the questions need to be answered as such. I am also only going to list the 'Cheese' questions rather than every question.

Also
Poll
Are the prize pieces...
... Cheeses?
... Pie?

Thanks. This session report reminds me how much I liked this game when we used to play. They do offer up a very good set of questions...better than pretty much all the trivia games that followed.

I can't answer your first poll question, because we call them "Keksi" which translates to "cookie". But we use "Keksi" for many game pieces in many games; even for money.

The second poll is a typical "how do they mean that?"-question. As an experienced TP player who has to answer this, you would ask "Earth included or not?" and then give your answer. There are a few of those in every set.

And gratulations for your win - I always have troubles beating my wife modest

What, no answers?

Don't try to out-clever the game. Venus is the answer, Earth would be a "gotcha" answer I'd expect to find in an ironic trivia game for hipsters.
