Trivial Pursuit 2000’s
Trivial Pursuit is being relaunched to prove trivia buffs’ love of the naughties to the present day, with many questions featuring celeb and pop-culture trivia.
From Bruno Mars’ turn as a macaw in the animated flick Rio 2 to the name of the furry little animal located on an island off Western Australia who has become a selfie superstar, the new Trivial Pursuit 2000s will have many current pop-culture references including Katy Perry, Angry Birds and Mad Men to name a few. It will only feature questions from the year 2000 to the present day, including recent events, current celebrities and pop culture phenomenons, many with a uniquely Australian theme.
This year, the ultimate family party game TWISTER is celebrating its 50th anniversary and five decades of tying players up in knots!
To celebrate the 50th anniversary, a new TWISTER game has been released with two new moves, Spinner’s Choice and Air. With Spinner’s Choice, the spinner makes up a move for the other player to do. If the spinner lands on Air, the player must put a hand or foot up in the air!
Australian fans can celebrate TWISTER’s 50th anniversary on social media by using #TWISTER50 and can visit www.hasbro.com for more information. The TWISTER game is available for $39.99 at major retailers nationwide.
Googly Eyes (RRP $30.00) is a twist on the classic board game where a team member draws an object and the others guess what it is – this time the person drawing has to wear vision-altering glasses! The game is about performing under pressure while looking silly – the perfect formula for family fun! Includes 3 sets of vision altering lenses that go from easy to hard. Googly Eyes was one of the top selling games in Europe last year and has been especially adapted for the Australian release.
Now for an ultra gross game and of course the kids will love it!
Gooey Louie is a gross but fun game which my kids found quite hilarious. Each player rolls a die and takes turns picking green gooey things from Louie’s nose (grooosss!!). But choose carefully – if you pick the wrong one, his eyes will pop, the top of his head will flip open and his brain will come flying out. Gooey Louie is suitable for 2+ players aged 4+ $39.99. View the TV commercial.
Check out my previous post which shows my kids playing Gooey Louie.
Stinky Pig is a silly fast-action, gas-fueled dice game!
Played like hot potato, the goal is not to be the one left holding this piggy when it lets one rip. Poke his belly to hear him hum “Pop Goes the Weasel”, then roll the die to see which way to pass him. But you better be quick, it’s only a matter of time before he toots! The player holding Stinky Pig when he passes gas takes a token, and the player with the fewest tokens wins!
Suitable for 2 or more players aged 6yrs+. Includes two “AA” replaceable batteries. RRP $19.95.
