I played this over Christmas 2013.
The purpose of the game is to go around the board and answer trivia questions; trivia cards have two questions on each, so you pick which question to ask (In my opinion, almost always one of the questions is "easy", the other is "difficult"). Answering correctly results in winning a random "character" card. You can trade in character cards of the same suit in for donuts (The pink and sprinkled "Forbidden Donut"!), but only when you land on certain spots on the board. Some spots on the board require you to gain, lose or pass donuts to players on either side of you. Get seven donuts and you win!
I played this for almost a whole afternoon with 2-3 players, and we got through all of the trivia cards and character cards. Most questions appear to be from Seasons 1-12 or so, which are regarded by many as the better seasons of the series (Personally, I don't watch any re-runs past 8). Some questions go as...
While we love this game, we were saddened to find that there are no Phil Hartman-voiced characters in the "character" cards. We are emailing Cardinal Games to find out why. They left out legendary characters like Troy McClure, Lionel Hutz, Lyle Lanley ("Monorail"), Evan Conover ("Australia!"), Bart's "Bigger Brother" Tom, and many other one-off characters. As uber-fans of the show, we miss these characters and wish they were part of the game, in part to honor Phil Hartman's incredible talent and legacy he left behind for us to enjoy.
Aside from that, it's enjoyable to play. The trivia questions have a good range to them, from uber-fan to newby-fan. And the game-play itself is simple and fun.
This game is really good. The questions are ridicously difficult - the fans wrote them - but the game is designed so that even if you can't answer them all it's possible to win.
Since my wife won after answering only one question correctly my 11 year old and 14 year old have been focused solely on playing again, to get the record set straight... Yes, folks, that's a teenager and her brother keen to spend more time around the kitchen table with their parents!
Well done, whoever designed this! We await your Big Bang Theory game for Tom's birthday in September!
