Review of Trivial Pursuit: World of Warcraft Edition

Review of Trivial Pursuit World of Warcraft Edition
Trivial Pursuit is a game that I grew up playing with friends and family, so I've always had a fondness for it. It was born in 1979 in the wilds of Canada, and it made its way down to the United States in the early 80's. Over the years there have been a number of question sets and versions of the game. Star Wars, Saturday Night Live, and Lord of the Rings all lay claim to a version of Trivial Pursuit. Personally, I think it's long overdue that we get a World of Warcraft version of the game.

I had the pleasure of going through and playing World of Warcraft Trivial Pursuit this weekend with my regular table top gaming group. We are a group of current and former players that range from everything from hard core raiders to lore addicts. It just seemed like a good idea to get together and put the game through its paces.

With no reviews showing just yet, it's a little hard to get a sense of the game's quirks and unique touches, however according to the description it does boast baby murloc game pieces.

NetEase launches Mists of Pandaria Mahjong set

NetEase launches Mists Mahjong set
NetEase, one of the largest retailers of World of Warcraft and general Blizzard merchandise in China, has recently launched a new product. In a very, very limited edition of just 1,000 copies, at least for now, this set is sure to go fast. It's retailing for what a currency converter approximates to be $208, at today's rates at least, and it really is a thing of beauty.

The set is beautifully designed and crafted, with the panda footprint featuring heavily on the tiles, as seen above, as well as the accompanying poker chips, the dice, dividers, and the red wooden presentation box. The play mat is a cloth rendition of the continent of Pandaria, which appears sympathetically rendered. If this sounds a little like a sales pitch, it shouldn't, this set is just incredibly beautifully made, and warrants the praise!

Rumor has it that this limited edition of 1,000 is not just for China, but for the worldwide market, so be prepared to have to jump through some hoops if you want one. They are currently only available through NetEase's website, where some judicious use of a translation engine will land the enthusiastic shopper with a login, allowing them to sign up for one of these sets. Given the coverage it's getting, and the minimal price, don't be surprised if you lose out.

Hit the break for more pictures!
