PARKER BROTHERS INTRODUCES TRIVIAL PURSUIT 1992 YEAR-IN-REVIEW EDITION; NEW VERSION OF CLASSIC BOARD GAME SETS PACE WITH NATIONAL TREND

 BEVERLY, Mass., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 24 years after "60 Minutes" first aired, record numbers of television magazine and reality programs have hit the prime time line-up with scores of viewers tuning in. This growing interest in up-to-the-minute news, happenings and milestones has been fueled by the increasing exchange of information characterizing what trend analysts call the Information Age. Furthering this trend is the newest TRIVIAL PURSUIT game... The 1992 Year In Review Edition. This collectible, contemporary, quicker playing edition is available now for an approximate retail price of $14.99
 Current events fans and trivia buffs who have been eagerly digesting information while watching "Prime Time Live" or reading People Magazine can now put their knowledge to the test in the game exclusively devoted to a year rich in trivia history.
 And what gives a player an edge in this new quicker version of the original TRIVIAL PURSUIT game? According to Alfred C. Carosi, senior vice president of marketing at Parker Brothers, "Reading the paper, watching TV, listening to Hollywood gossip -- just being alive and aware in 1992 can turn a player into an expert Year In Review competitor."
 While game play follows the TRIVIAL PURSUIT game's classic rules as players compete for colored wedges by answering questions, the spirit of the game is completely new. Rolling a color-coded die to determine categories instead of moving around a gameboard facilitates quick and easy play. A simpler format also provides a faster paced game as questions are designed to invite quick responses.
 So, just what is the name Chelsea Clinton's black and white cat answers to?...Anyone who knows or thinks they can give an accurate guess, can play Year In Review with confidence, and possibly win the game that immortalizes 1992 in trivia. Other questions players may encounter while playing Year In Review: What Los Angeles police chief retired after criticism over the Rodney King beatings? What, according to a hit TV series, is the ZIP code for Beverly Hills? Whose book, United We Stand, topped the bestseller lists after its August release?(a)
 1992's events, happenings and milestones will now live on indefinitely in the TRIVIAL PURSUIT game's questions that fall into one of six categories: Personalities, Entertainment, Around the World, Sports & Leisure, In The News and Wild Card.
 The TRIVIAL PURSUIT game is available in 19 different languages in 33 countries all over the world. The 1992 Edition is the first in a new line of Year In Review games by Parker Brothers. This book shelf style collectible will be available for a limited time only.
 Parker Brothers is owned by Hasbro, Inc., the world's largest toy and game company.
