Avatar Trivial Pursuit on the computer... always a tricky thing. The game lets you reveal the answer to the questions and asks if you made it correct. Basically completely nonsense to play alone and when playing with a friend the question remains why you don't play the "real" board game. I've always wondered who buys these games at all - but then again, obviously not too many as the game is out of sale (and I cannot remember having really seen it in the stores at all, might just be me, but I guess it wasn't exactly a bestseller and thus not many copies were in the shops). If you don't happen to own the board game this game makes for a somewhat decent replacement though. That weird turkeylike... person... asking the questions is a bit annoying - also he managed to annoy me very fast by endlessly demonstrating that the programmer was able to put my name into a variable and insert that into each and every statement after the question, success or not.

Anyway - apart from that the game is not bad and also offers things a board game cannot, like showing pictures (e.g. to recognize an island by its shape) or playing tunes (e.g. to guess a film it's from). If for some reason you prefer to sit at the computer with a few friends more than sitting around a table this is your game. But seriously - otherwise I recommend the board game, it got more potential for a good playing session with friends.

Oh - just in case you are not familiar with the concept of Trivial Pursuit: You roll the dice, then move a thingy around that has 6 empty slots. The fields on which you can move are colored in six different colors, each corresponding to another area of knowledge from which you get a question to answer. If you answer correctly it's your turn again, if not it's the next player's turn. On special fields you obtain a cake-piece you put into one of the empty slots - in case you know the right answer that is of course. Once you have collected all the different colors you move back into the middle and answer your final question - and win.
