Not every board game lends itself to digital versions well, but this one easily preserves what makes trivia games fun. Though Trivial Pursuit Live! 2 is based on AI's selection of the questions, it duplicates the true randomness that exists from shuffling a deck of cards or spinning a plastic spinner. Each game does manage to feel different, with a few surprisingly easy questions -- or ridiculously obscure ones, always appearing when players least expect them. This game also does a good job of accommodating a wide range of pop culture references in the Entertainment category, so those of all ages will feel that the category is approachable. This is a trap that some older trivia board games can't help but fall into, as once the question cards are printed, they run the risk of feeling dated as time passes.

Another advantage to a video game format is how easily players can connect with friends and family regardless of their location. The ability to easily connect online via Twitch, or to pass around one controller if groups happen to be playing in the same room, offers flexibility that makes this an easy choice for trivia fans' family game night. In addition, the difficulty of the computer-generated competitors is reasonable, not making things too easy or too difficult when playing alone. There are also hundreds of questions in each category, so players won't feel that they are answering the same question multiple times unless they play for many, many hours. Overall, the gameplay experience is smooth, and a wide audience will enjoy this installment in the Trivial Pursuit franchise. It's certainly not the first digital adaptation of Trivial Pursuit, and it probably won't be the last, but it's a solid entry that succeeds in remaining relevant for trivia fans old and new.
