I can’t wait to play!

You won’t be board by Trivial Pursuit
By Mike Snider, USA TODAY
Trivial Pursuit, the board game hit of the ’80s, is getting a makeover ó and some star power ó for a new generation.
Among the celebrities whose voices grace Trivial Pursuit Unhinged, a video game being developed by Atari, are Whoopi Goldberg, who will deliver arts & entertainment questions; Fox NFL Sunday analyst Terry Bradshaw, sports; cover girl Brooke Burke, people & places; former Monty Pythonite John Cleese, history; Bill Nye “The Science Guy,” science; and actor John Ratzenberger, wild card. The categories differ slightly from the original game, which has sold more than 70 million copies since its launch in 1982.
The new, colorful, 3-D version of the game has some twists that allow betting, challenging of answers, bonus points and capturing of other players’ wedges.
“It definitely has been jazzed up a lot,” says Burke, who hosts E!’s pop culture series Rank. “Instead of just challenging the mind intellectually, it’s a bit more fun now.”
A version for Sony PlayStation 2 ($29.95) arrives in November; Microsoft Xbox and Windows PC ($19.95) versions hit in December.
