I don’t mean to boast, but I am a monster at Trivial Pursuit. Years of playing the game with my family coupled with my inability to retain knowledge of anything that could actually serve a valuable purpose in life has led me to the point where the game simply isn’t a challenge anymore.

Now, EA is going to give me (and all of you, I guess, whatever) the chance to put up or shut up about my mad trivia skillz. In celebration of Trivial Pursuit‘s 25th anniversary, the publisher is releasing the game for a wide variety of platforms. Mobile versions should be arriving this winter and the home consoles will be getting theirs sometime early next spring. No word on handhelds but, knowing EA, it’s most likely just a matter of time.

So, who’s interested in getting their trivia on? This is the kind of thing I could see getting downright vicious on FNF. Check out the press release after the jump.
