As a kid I recall all the great daytime game shows. When I got older I loved the game show station where you could watch game shows all day long. It was always fun to play along and see if I could answer the questions. Perhaps that is why I liked trivia so well.
All those facts from the daytime game shows can now be used to show my family and friends how much I know. The fun part is seeing if they know the answers as well. Trivia day on January 4th is always a great day to share all the little facts we have stored up. Will anyone else know the answers??
The game Trivial Pursuit had its great run and sparked fascinations every where. Who will know the odd facts about geography, history, art, science, sports and entertainment. First created in Montreal Quebec Canada in 1979 Trivial Pursuit by Chris Haney and Scott Abbott the game was nearly an instant hit and worldwide phenomenon.
Today, celebrate by spend some time with family and quiz each other and discuss little known interesting facts. Arguments over whether the answers are right or wrong can come up so keep an encyclopedia or google.com close by. The competition over knowledge can be lots of fun so enjoy the game and a few facts I found as well:
