USAopoly, the folks that brought you the The Beatles Monopoly Game: Collector's Edition, will give another well-known game brand a Fab Four twist in 2009 with The Beatles Trivial Pursuit: Collector's Edition, set to hit stores in August.
The new game, under license from Hasbro and Signatures Network and officially authorized by Apple Corps., will feature over 2,500 questions and test players' Beatle knowledge in six categories of questions, including music, movies and the group's invasion of America. The completed "Revolver" puzzle
In addition, The Beatles: Trivial Pursuit will feature "a bonus track" on the game board with four additional zones:
* Come Together Zone: If a player lands on a wedge space, anyone with their pawn in this zone can declare a face-off with that player. The first player to answer correctly wins the matching colored wedge.
* Get Back Zone: A player can move someone else’s wedge to any other space on the game board to slow their progress.
* All You Need Is Love Zone: If a player lands on a wedge space here, that player can answer an easy question no matter the die roll.
* Ticket To Ride Zone: Players can take a scoring wedge of their choice for free.
The game features custom trivia card holders with photos of the Beatles, three levels of questions and a custom Beatles die to indicate the difficulty level of the questions.
Beatles: Trivial Pursuit follows last year's The Beatles Monopoly Game: Collector's Edition, which a spokesman said was the top seller last season of all the company's 179 games, calling it "our absolute top-selling game." Sixty-five of those were Monopoly games. These included several Monopoly variations also introduced last year, including those which featured "The Wizard of Oz," Disney villains, the "Peanuts" comic strip, James Bond and "The Chronicles of Narnia."
A second new USAopoly Beatle product this year is Beatles "Revolver" puzzle, due in June. The "Revolver" puzzle follows last year's Beatles "White Album" 40th Anniversary puzzle.
The new 500-piece puzzle, under license from Signature Networks, features a 19" by 19" inch replica of the cover drawn by Klaus Voormann.
"Revolver" is the fifth Beatles puzzle produced by USAopoly, following the White Album puzzle and the company's three Beatles "Anthology" puzzles.
