Hi Q Quiz

Hello Trivial Pursuit! And not necessarily welcome back, either. This offering from Blue Ribbon Is very similar to Trivial Pursuit, but without the polish or playability. You get four question headings: Sport, Science, History and Geography, and Art and Entertainment.

A maximum of four players move around the board answering a preset number of questions on each subject. The number is determined by the skill level (1 to 4), and each player's current status shows in their corner of the board.

HI-0's potential appeal is a bit difficult to pin down. The questions are too difficult to make it a late night too-drunkto- dance game; what self respecting party animal is going to know what sport uses the term Atchllli (the answer's Jai-Alai)! The screen display is too colourful and generally unattractive. If you're set on collecting trivia games, go ahead and buy this one, on your head be it.
