Trivial Pursuit


Trivial Pursuit

The one with the cheeses. Trivial Pursuit was conceived on December 15, 1979, when photo editor Chris Haney got together with sportswriter Scott Abbott over a brand new Scrabble brand crossword game.

They were journalists by profession, so the theme was current events. The questions all dealt with the 5 Ws - Who, What, When, Where and Why.

More than 30 million Trivial Pursuit games have now been sold worldwide in 18 languages and 32 countries.
