Is it really Pointless?

Pointless – The board game version of the popular BBC1 quiz show hosted by Alexander Armstrong, where the most obscure right answer is the best answer!

Players plumb the depths of their general knowledge to find the least popular, correct answers to questions as they fight against their natural instincts.

Can you name a country beginning with the letter M that no one else would think of? How about Mali or Micronesia? Can you think of a character from Toy Story that nobody else would remember? We all know Buzz Lightyear, but who remembers Wheezy the penguin? Put your obscure and pointless knowledge to the test with this board game version of the popular BBC2 quiz show hosted by Alexander Armstrong.

Fight against your natural instincts as you try to score the least number of points by guessing the least popular answers to general knowledge questions. In Pointless a series of questions is presented to the players. These questions have also been surveyed to a group of 100 other people. It’s the players’ job to think of an answer that is not only correct, but also the least popular among those surveyed. For example, if the question asks you to name a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Titanic is not a good answer as 88 people in the survey gave this. Anybody who says The Man in the Iron Mask gets a much better score of 6 points. Any correct answers the survey didn’t think of are Pointless answers and award a most desirable zero points. Who will carry off the Pointless trophy among your family and friends?

  1. I don’t think I have enough indepth knowledge in any subject to be able to get a pointless answer, but I suppose I could have a go at 20th Century British Murderers!

  2. If anybodyis serious this movie shows ways to alter your IP address to look at German TV stations like M6 Replay online from anywhere.
