There was a point when I thought a Star Trek
version of Scene It?
would never come out, but, eventually in 2009, the DVD trivia game finally arrived. In fact, there are two versions: Original and Deluxe. The Deluxe version has more trivia and Prime Directive cards, and the token pieces are made out of metal rather than plastic.
Depending on how long you want to play the game for, there is a short and long version. In the short version, you simply keep the board folded up in a circle, while for a longer game, you open the board up so that there are more spaces to move across. A slight annoyance here, however, is that when you open up the board, it doesn't lie flat, so your cards and pieces slide from their position.
Each player chooses which token piece they want to use. You have a choice from the Enterprise 1701, Enterprise-D, Defiant, or Voyager.
Once the DVD is on the main menu, you can choose how long you have to answer the questions: 30, 20, or 10 seconds.
Players then take it in turns to roll the two dice; these include a standard six-sided numbered die and an eight-sided symbol die.
The number determines how many spaces you move, while the symbol determines what category you will play. If you land on a Warp Speed Space, and get the trivia question right, on your next turn, you move double the number of spaces on the die.
These range from questions about ships, questions about events, questions about alien cultures, and a game where you get a distorted image that you have to decipher.
Sometimes you may have to pick up a Prime Directive Card, which could have you move ahead, move back, or skip a turn.
Star Trek Scene It?
is lots of fun, and the difficulty of the questions range from very easy to challenging, therefore suiting diehard fans and casual viewers alike.
Once someone reaches the 'Stop' space, everyone has a go at answering a trivia question. If the person whose turn it is answers correctly first, then they win the game, if not, they have to travel the Final Frontier to the finish line. I do find the rules to this part are not a hundred percent clear, however, so sometimes it gets confusing on whether you have won or not.
