Trivial Pursuits: The Complete Idiots Guide to Fun FAQ's Review

I love to play games, and so does the rest of my family so we have a wide variety of them. We have plenty of games that we can play with young children plus a few left over from our Newlywed years including Trivial Pursuit. Brett and I are fairly evenly matched on's the subject matter that makes the difference.

He doesn't know it but I now have a leg-up on him for the next time we get to play! hehehe See, as a part of the The Complete Idiot’s Guide books I am reading and reviewing for you, I’ve been boning up on my trivia thanks to The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Fun FAQs by Sandy Wood and Kara Kovalchik.

For instance, I now know that the original terminus points for the Orient Express were Paris, France and Istanbul, Turkey. Take that Benbridge scholars! :)

But what about you? How about the answers to:
  • What is the only Lucky Charms marshmallow that has not changed since the cereal's introduction?
  • What is the real first name of golf phenom Tiger Woods?
  • What do TV characters Ernie Douglass(My Three Sons), Bamm-Bamm Rubble (The Flintstones), and Webster Long (Webster) have in common?
  • What word for a socially inept person was coined by Dr. Suess in his book If I Ran the Zoo?
And if you know the answers to all of those, you ARE good! Those answers and more can be found right there in the book.

What DO I Say?
Seriously, it was a lot to fun to read. Because it is simply a listing of facts, it is a fast read as well. The scope of the trivia was quite broad - from Sports to Babies to History to TV to Food and more. I cannot imagine anyone not being entertained by
The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Fun FAQs and you learn a lot in the process. A great gift again, for the hard to buy for crowd.

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Fun FAQs was released in May of 2008 and retails for about $12.95. Pick up a copy at either Penguin Books online or a book retailer near you.
