About TRIVIAL PURSUIT: Disney For All Edition
Not just Disney trivia, TRIVIAL PURSUIT: Disney For All Edition (SRP $29.99) connects the whole family by revealing personal “remember when” moments from every Disney touchstone. Created for the whole family, TRIVIAL PURSUIT: Disney For All Edition features three innovative question types: “Take 2 Trivia”—giving two chances to earn the wedge, “My Disney”— little personal trivia sparked by favorite Disney moments or characters, and “Disney List”—work together to create lists or choose which don’t belong. With these questions, players don’t have to be a Disney genius to play, and with the help of a “secret reveal” device players can see just how much their family loves Disney!
