A dead simple quiz game... It doesn't have any bells or whistles to speak of but it's really playable though. You'll find yourself having just one more go... Read Review
I personally can't stand the TV show, but the game's even worse. Read Review
Accurately captures the concept, but tacks a lot of the spirit of the TV show. A nice treat for sports fans though. Read Review
It's nicely presented, although this does slow play down a bit 'cos you have to wait for hours whilst David wibbles away endlessly between rounds. Read Review
Welcome to "A Question Of Sport", the home computer version. Introduced by David Coleman, with team captains Ian Botham and Bill Beaumont, you at last have the chance to compete in the BBC's most popular TV Sports Quiz of 1988 on the same kind of one-to-one basis as your favourite sporting stars do on the show itself. In selected versions, you can play as Bill's or Ian's team with the options of a one- or two-player game. You can pit your wits against your family, your friends, or, if you're on your own, against your computer - and you don't have to wait for the show to appear on TV. Now you can play whenever you feel in the mood! The game has six exciting rounds that will test your knowledge of the sporting world to the limit.
Round 1: Pictureboard
Round 2: Mystery Personality
Round 3: Home or Away
Round 4: What Happened Next?
Round 5: Quickfire Round
Round 6: Another Pictureboard Round
To ensure that this version of A Question Of Sport provides many hours of entertainment and education, it has been designed to minimise the repetition of questions and answers. Selected versions of A Question Of Sport will therefore prompt you after you have played four games to load a new question block (to do this, see the Playing Instructions). Other versions may start to repeat some questions after four games. When this happens, you are recommended to select another question block which contains fresh questions.
A Question Of Sport is an enthralling game for young and old alike and the only limit if your own knowledge. Good luck!
