Trivial Pursuit: Bet You Know It is successful in opening up a new form of gameplay for the classic, decades-old trivia game staple. It adds a new layer of strategy as it requires players to size up everyone in the room and guess who knows what. It provides a much more fun, party-like experience as opposed to the intense cerebral challenge associated with this franchise; though the level of difficulty in the trivia questions themselves is on par with what Trivial Pursuit aficionados should expect.
