Trivial Pursuit Co-creator Dies: Your Favorite Editions

By Posted 2 Jun 2010, 09:14

The co-creator of Trivial Pursuit, Chris Haney has sadly died due to extended illness. Haney along with Scott Abbott created the game in the 70s and since then have seen a number of editions. The game was finally released to the public in 1985 and was later sold to Hasbro for $80 million.

This got us thinking as to how many Trivial Pursuit editions there have been and what is your favorite? A quick search shows that there have been 42 editions so far – the first was Trivial Pursuit Master Game – Genus Edition and the latest is Trivial Pursuit Team.

Looking through the list it starts to take me back to certain parts of my life – this is how iconic the board game is. A few of the editions that stand out for me has to be Star Wars Classic Trilogy Collector’s, Lord of the Rings and Trivial Pursuit 25th Anniversary Edition.

Do not think for one moment that the game requires you to have an high I.Q. you have seen from two mentioned above that you only need to have a good knowledge of a certain subject, it just so happen that I love the three original Star Wars movies.
