The gift that keeps giving indeed. The Scene It? franchise has delivered once again with The Simpsons and Star Trek Deluxe Editions. The Simpsons edition is a game made for the family with trivia questions ranging from general (“What instrument does Lisa play?”) to specific (“What’s the name of Springfield’s movie theatre?”)—making it perfect for teams. The interactive DVD adds to the fun the fun with clips from all 20 seasons, allowing new and old fans of Bart and his family to compete together. The Star Trek edition is also comprehensive with trivia pulled from all five television series and 10 movies. Fans of Enterprise and The Next Generation will enjoy the clips and games found on the interactive DVD. The creators of these games paid close attention to detail providing thoughtful show tokens to move around the board. Simpson aficionados will appreciate show icons such as the Springfield power plant, the three-eyed fish and family TV. As for the Star Trek edition, Trekkies will get a kick out of moving the franchise’s famous ships around the galaxy – the Enterprise, the Enterprise D, the Defiant and the Voyager. Either of these games would make a notable gift for the host/ess of this season’s best party. Just make sure the recipient is truly a fan, otherwise those tokens won’t move at all.
