Whenever the family come together we always get the board games out. I think our favourite is Trivial Pursuit, it's certainly the one we play the most. I've been playing this game since the 80's, first the original edition and then updated versions which were brought out over the years. You used to be able to buy additional questions for the original game but I believe they stopped doing that, and does anyone remember the games where a video was supplied with the questions? We had a few of those in different genres.
We bought a new game a few years ago as the questions in the game we were using were out of date but unfortunately, the same thing is happening again. It would be good if new questions were released on a regular basis instead of having to buy a completely new game.
We noticed that a new Trivial Pursuit game had been launched, the Ruby edition to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Trivial Pursuit brand. This comes with all the usual trivia questions, but also has an additional Ruby deck featuring key questions from the past forty years. We succumbed, it will be fun having some brand new questions to answer when the family are all together over Christmas.
Another favourite is Who Dares Wins. We enjoy this quiz show when it's on TV so we bought the game a couple of years ago.
Pointless is another game which usually comes out when we're all together too. As you can see, we do enjoy a quiz in this house.
We've got the usual Monopoly, Cluedo and Scrabble amongst others which we also play, but it's the quiz games which get the most use.
Do you enjoy playing games as a family? Which are your favourites?
