TRIVIAL PURSUIT: Bet You Know It edition is the most inclusive and exciting version of TRIVIAL PURSUIT yet, where players don't have to know all the answers to win - but they do need to know their friends! TRIVIAL PURSUIT: Bet You Know It edition introduces high stakes betting to trivia, where players bet on whether or not their opponents know the answer. Guess correctly and players will earn chips that can be used to buy wedges -- or they can earn wedges by answering questions correctly on their turn.
The first time we played Trivial Pursuit: Bet You Know It, we often times forgot that we had to bet if the other player would get the answer right or wrong, so betting did take some getting used to. However, once we got the hang of it, it was pretty funny to see how often I would bet that DH would get an answer wrong, and how often he would bet that I would get an answer right!
Another thing about Bet You Know It that's different from other Trivial Pursuit Games we've played is the use of Topics. On your turn, you pick a card (out of 4) based on the topic, which allows the other player to bet for or against you. The topics can be a bit deceiving, which makes it even more fun!
Throughout the game, when I landed on a Buy or Roll space and had enough points to buy a wedge, I immediately bought a wedge of the color category I always have trouble with (like History).
Normally, DH beats me at Trivial Pursuit, but so far, I've beaten him in more Bet You Know It games, since I'm often buying wedges, but that's part of how you play the game, so I shouldn't feel bad. A win is a win!
