Have you got a friend who acts like the biggest sports know-it-all? The one who claims to know every stat in the book and who wields this knowledge like an intimidating weapon, or wears it with a sense of gleeful self-importance? Call their bluff with this new board game from ESPN. This is Trivial Pursuit for sports geeks of the first order. With a 24-second shot clock counting down on answering questions, the pressure is on, as players must answer all manner of question from “rookie” to “pro” level. The “rookie” questions are more like the sort you may encounter in Trivial Pursuit, so beware those “pro” questions, or spring them on the know-it-all to bring them down a peg or two.
