Trivial Pursuit is a board game that has been testing players’ knowledge of trivia on a wide range of subjects – from history to sports – since 1979. It’s a fun game to play, but it can be quite a challenge if you’re not as well versed in some categories as you are at others. Foodie Fight is a trivia game that is similar to trivial pursuit, but is based on just one theme that, if you’re a foodie or someone who just loves food, you might have a much better chance of winning because the whole game has a culinary theme.
The categories for the cards include Foodieshpere, Lab & Field, Dining Out, Food Stars, Company’s Coming and What’s Cooking. The questions can range from facts about different vegetables to the flavors in unusual cuisines to food-related pop culture questions from books, movies or TV. The game has 1000 trivia questions on more than 168 cards, so it can be played quite a few times before any of the questions pop up again.
I’ve played this game a few times with some food-loving friends, and have to admit that I do much better at it than I do at regular trivial pursuit. There are also a few friends who are better at the classic game than at this one, and it’s nice to have a little bit of an edge for once! The game is fun and fast paced, just as good for parties (you could try playing in teams) as for smaller, family gatherings.
