Description

NE-spelet (`the NE game´) is a Swedish trivia game published by Nationalencyklopedin (the Swedish National Encyclopedia). Plays a lot like Trivial Pursuit but with some differences. Players move on the board and answer questions in ten different topics. On the board are ten `topic rooms´ where players receive a plastic `book´ if they answer the question correctly. The winner is the first player to collect all ten books and return to the spot in the middle of the board.

To spice things up a little players may use cards. These come in three types: One gives you a clue for your current question, one lets you steal a book from another player, and the third kind lets you choose which book to get when you answer correctly in a topic room. Thus, if you know that History is not for you, than you may win two books in the Biology room and exchange one of them for a History book.

The game comes with 8,000 questions on 800 cards.

This game is related to Det store norske spillet.

Reimplemented as Kunskapsjakten.

This is a good trivia game. Compared to Trivial Pursuit the questions are often somewhat harder and more interesting. The possibility of getting a further hint to the answer by paying a card adds a little bit of tactics to the game and is a nice touch. Regarding the "steal a book" cards, on the oither hand, I'd personally like to see them just vanish. The categories are rather well chosen to fit players with different interests. My biggest objection regarding them concerns the "ord" or vocabulary questions. These can often be a bit annoying in their ambiguity and leave hard descicions to the co-players in desciding whether or not a synonym to the written answer should be counted as correct.

It has better questions than TP imo but the idea is the same.

The game reminds me of Trivial Pursuit. I am not very fond of games like these.

As far as trivia games go, I think this one is better than TP...

Rather poor components, especially for the (high) price. The questions are quite good though, and the topics are well composed. A clear step up from Trivial Pursuit.

more difficult questions than Trivial Pursuit

Swedish game designers have decided that every game must include cards with questions, or so it seems anyway. In this case there is a reason of course, namely to promote the National Encyclopedia. It is more of a game than Trivial Pursuit, and there is even some potential for player interaction in that you can steal `books´ from other players. Who am I kidding, it´s cards with questions. It just seems a waste of time to play this when we could be playing a game instead.

One of the very best trivia games, with well thought out questions, and good hints. Has a problem with easy questions mixed with very hard ones in some categories.

This game is much better than Trivial Pursuit. I'll probably get rid of my TP games and just keep this one. The questions in this game is more useful and fun to learn, and sometimes I actually know the answer (which is never the case in any TP game I've played, not even Disney TP......).

Good balance of the questions. The adition of the hints is a nice touch but the cards that steal books and other special abilities suck. Just make every special card a hint card and it's the best trivia game.

Rip off from trivial pursuit. Even poorer way of movement. Difficult questions.

Not very fond of trivia games. This one is playable, but it is often evident that the author of the questions have just checked in the encyclopedia and knows nothing about the subject.

Another game with a ridiculously sized box and weird (but high quality) components. Bezzerwizzer is a much better trivia game.
