University Games Pointless The Board Game

University Games Pointless The Board Game

Can you name a country beginning with the letter M that no one else would think of? How ... more

about Mali or Micronesia? Can you think of a
character from Toy Story that nobody else would
remember? We all know Buzz Lightyear, but who
remembers Wheezy the penguin? Put your obscure and
pointless knowledge to the test with this board
game version of the popular BBC2 quiz show hosted
by Alexander Armstrong. Fight against your natural
instincts as you try to score the least number of
points by guessing the least popular answers to
general knowledge questions. In Pointless a series
of questions is presented to the players. These
questions have also been surveyed to a group of
100 other people. It's the players' job to think
of an answer that is not only correct, but also
the least popular among those surveyed. For
example, if the question asks you to name a film
starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Titanic is not a good
answer as 88 people in the survey gave this.
Anybody who says The Man in the Iron Mask gets a
much better score of 6 points. Any correct answers
the survey didn't think of are Pointless answers
and award a most desirable zero points. Who will
carry off the Pointless trophy among your family
and friends? For 2 to 4 players or teams and ages
10 and up.

A good game, but the board really is Pointless!

AdvantagesEasy to play. Good laugh with family/friends.

DisadvantagesThe board is pointless. The trophy is so bad its good!!!

"...which cost around £20, from University Games. I have to say that I really quite like the show on BBC television, which has surprised me somewhat as I generally find Alexander Armstrong a little bit irritating. What works on the television is the chemistry that he and Richard Osman clearly have together, and was slightly concerned that the reason the television show worked was more down to them rather than the concept of the game so was worried that ..."

Not often you are happy to be called pointless!

AdvantagesFun and different slant on trivia and general knowledge

DisadvantagesBoard is pointless and needs a bit of refinement

"POINTLESS BOARD GAME My step son knows we are big fans of this quiz game on TV. I love the interaction between Richard and Alexander Armstrong. They are both such clever people unlike some contestant show presenters. I had seen this on Amazon and wondered what it would be like and was very pleasantly surprised to get this as a gift from step son. He is actually very clever at finding gifts that are just right for people. We played this quite a ..." Read review

Pointless Board Game - not pointless at all!

AdvantagesMultiple groups & players, easy to understand, fun

DisadvantagesOne person has to be "quizmaster", board not necessary making it more expensive

"As fans of the BBC show Pointless, and of board games generally, we were excited to purchase Pointless the Board Game for some Sunday afternoon fun with the family. The premise of the game, as with the show, is to select the most obscure correct answer from a list. Those that the majority of people asked did not recall will earn you the least number of points and the winner is the one who has the least number of points in the final ..." Read review
