Triviathon, the trivia game for all ages and intellectual abilities

Triviathon, the trivia game for all ages and intellectual abilities 

Are you intimated to play trivia games because you don’t have the knowledge to answer all the random questions?  Now there is a trivia game that doesn’t require a great expanse of knowledge.  

Triviathonis the trivia game for both smart and stupid people.  The creators of Triviathon based game on the fact that you don’t have to be in the 1% of super-intelligent people to succeed at a trivia game. It’s no fun to play against that one person who always wins the trivia contest. Now, Triviathon puts everyone, regardless of knowledge or age, on an even playing field. 

Triviathon’s answers are based on strategic guesses. For example, a player chooses to move 3 spaces. That player must choose the answer, A. B. C. or D, that corresponds to moving 3 spaces. You don’t necessarily have to know the correct answer, you just guess.

Here’s a sample question - 
A. The number of countries that border the Sargasso Sea
B. The number of hearts in an octopus
C. The number of people named Oscar to have ever won an Oscar
D. The number of dogs that survived the Titanic

Since I wanted to move 3 spaces, I would choose answer B, the number of hearts in an octopus. I didn’t have to know the correct answer; but I could still get the answer correct.

The other aspect of Triviathon is that every player has a unique character. Based on your selected color, you assume a character in the game. Each character has qualities that can be used to your advantage during the game.  For example, if you are the Bully, you can arm wrestle your way ahead of your opponents.

Recently, we were given the opportunity to play Triviathon. Usually, we don’t play trivia based games because I’m good at trivia. It becomes boring for me to answer and other friends to say – how did you know that. But when we played Triviathon, we were all on a level playing field.  We each really got into our characters and how we could use our characters to our playing advantage. And, my random knowledge didn’t even help me in this game. My friend won by using a process of elimination to determine the answer that he needed to move ahead.

After we played a round, we let the kids join in. The kids were just as good as the adults. What I liked was that I could use Triviathon as a way to teach my kids some random knowledge questions so that they could impress their teachers.

Triviathon retails for $29.99 at most retailers.

Locally, Triviathon can be purchased at Marbles: The Brain Store. Marbles is located at 123 S. Washington St. Naperville, IL 60540 in Downtown Naperville.  Other Marbles locations in Chicago, Woodfield Mall, Lincoln Square and Old Orchard also carry the game.

So, this holiday season, put Triviathon under the tree. It will be the game that the whole family can enjoy.
