This game comes in a large tin, the bulk of which is a large stack of cards with trivia questions on it, and one piece which is a viewer so that you can read just one question at a time. The answer to each trivia question is a numeric answer, and next to the answers are also an "acceptably low" value and an "acceptably high" value. Since the questions tend to be written such that they're completely out of the realm of people actually knowing them, players are scored based on successfully being in the acceptable range.
I didn't find the trivia questions in this game very interesting; it seemed like on every question the only strategy was to attempt to estimate what the answer was based on extremely incomplete information, and just hope it was close. It seemed like the question writers, instead of trying to go out of their way to pick interesting questions, thought that by giving a large quantity of questions would be enough to make the game enjoyable. The game doesn't have any other items or toys to play with, and the scoring system is rather straightforward as well.
