Trivial Pursuit (Stadia) – Why board games are the best here

I’I’ve played a bit of Trivial Pursuit over the past week, and I’m quickly realizing that Google Stadia might be the perfect way to play these types of board games/game shows! Why, because I can take this game anywhere, save me a mess all over the table, and invite friends over to join us. Here is our preview of Trivial Pursuit on Google Stadia!

Confused about Trivial Pursuit? Well, it’s basically a trivia game…which involves a chase…to win. OK, all joking aside, players will move around the board collecting colored game pieces associated with specific topics. Each time you correctly answer a question on a color shape dot on the board, you earn that game piece and work to collect the others. Once you have collected them all, you move to the middle and try to answer one last question to win the game.

Now take that concept and remove the board, add different cool categories, and you’ve got a really cool version of Trivial Pursuit that’s fun to play, especially with friends. And that’s where Google Stadia shines. I can take this game almost ANYWHERE, and have people connect to the system with almost anything they want, assuming it’s Bluetooth.

And after that, it’s just a lot of fun. There is nothing out of the ordinary here that will knock you out of your chair. The visuals are bland, the voice acting is bland, the audio is bland… but the gameplay is just damn fun, and in this type of experience, that’s really all that matters.

Trivial Pursuit on Stadia doesn’t knock down any walls in terms of performance and looks, but it doesn’t have to be. It must have a functional appearance with fantastic controls and gameplay. This is what we need. And that’s what we get!
