The 5 Best Trivia Board Games

Unlike games of chance, trivia games are a great way to test your knowledge in head-to-head competition with friends and family. However, many trivia board games are notorious for difficult, outdated questions that make them hard to play — especially if you’re playing with a group that varies in age and background. On the other hand, if you buy one that’s too easy, you’ll get bored quickly. So, if you are on a quest to find the best trivia board games, the key will be to find one that plays to your group’s interests and skill level.

With a seemingly infinite amount of options out there, the main thing to consider when choosing a trivia game is the subject matter. If you and your friends or family have a wide range of interests, it's best to go for a general game like Trivial Pursuit with categories that appeal to everyone. And don’t worry if in the past you’ve found Trivia Pursuit too difficult — new editions of the game have been updated with modern questions that won’t leave you hopelessly stumped. On the other hand, if you and your friends all share the same niche interest, like history or movies, you may have more fun with a game that focuses on that specific subject.

Whether you're a movie fan or a history buff, there's plenty of options on this list to add some excitement to your next get-together. And once you've chosen your ideal trivia board game, be sure to check out the best new party games.
