Know It or Blow It — Editor's Pick
Specially made for teams, this trivia game tests your general knowledge about random fun facts that you either know or don’t know. Not knowing an answer is a key to the game and will not necessarily get you or your team kicked out – if you don’t know the answer you can simply stop playing rather than risk your team’s points. If you answer incorrectly, however, your team will lose points for the round.
- This is a great game to play with family
- It does require 4+ people to play
Trivial Pursuit — Excellent Quality
This version of the classic trivia game will test your knowledge in the 2000s and features 300 trivia cards with 1800 questions from six categories. This game comes with the usual game board and players will move around the board answering questions and collecting wedges corresponding to that category’s color. This edition is unique, however, since if you don’t know the answer to a question, you can try to stump everyone else and if they are wrong you can still get the wedge.
- This game may be played with only two players
- The questions can be kind of challenging
Spin Master Games — Best for Movie Buffs

It requires players to identify logos and answer trivia questions about over 200 hit television shows and blockbuster movies and comes with 400 cards, a game board, and six playing pieces. This game is ideal for 2-6 players and will provide hours of entertainment with your friends and family.
- This game allows you to use a mute card to silence an opposing player
- This game may be too adult for kids younger than 10
The Awkward Family Photos — Also Consider
This unique and hilarious game provides 160 awkward family photos to be captioned with 330 memorable movie lines and everyone’s favorite caption wins.

All the other players use their dealt movie line cards to decide which one best captions the photo and the critic picks their favorite to win the round.
- No movie knowledge is necessary to play
- Some of the photos or movie lines may not be appropriate for very young players
