Trivial Pursuit Turbo Online Arcade Game

Ready for brain-tickling trivia and a race against the timer? Exercise your right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of trivia! Solve head-scratchers from pop culture to politics, but remember to be quick -- the action is nonstop and the tempo is turbo!

Game Rules

The pursuit of knowledge is anything but trivial! Test your knowledge in 12 questions covering six classic categories.

In TRIVIAL PURSUIT TURBO, the game contains six rounds of two questions each. Each round covers one of the six classic categories from the Genus edition of Trivial Pursuit. These categories are:

  • Art & Literature
  • Science & Nature
  • Sports & Leisure
  • Geography
  • Entertainment
  • History

When the category selection card comes up, pick any category. The early rounds are worth more, so choose your strongest categories first. For example, if you're a Geography buff, start with that category. If you don't know much about History, save that category for later. The order in which you answer questions is up to you, so maximize your score by starting with your strengths! When a category has been picked, it will no longer appear on the selection card.

After you pick a category, you'll see the first of two question cards. Each card shows a question and four possible answers. At the right of the card is the Question Timer. You'll have 15 seconds to answer, but as the remaining time decreases, so does the value of the question. The earlier you answer correctly, the more points you'll get! But if you answer incorrectly, you'll no points at all. If you don't know the answer, you can always choose to pass by clicking the Pass Button. You'll be awarded a small amount of points for passing -- always more points than guessing incorrectly.

There are horizontal marks on the timer. Every time the meter reaches one of the marks, a wrong answer is eliminated, and the value of the question drops 25 points. When the timer runs out, only the correct answer will be left, and you'll be awarded the passing score for the question.

Answering a question correctly adds a Scoring Wedge to the scoring wheel. The color of the slice matches the current category. For example, answering a History question correctly will earn you a yellow Scoring Wedge. If you get both questions right in any category, a "2x" will appear in the scoring wheel.
