What About Your Own Rules?
Sometimes, rules for Disney Trivia board games can get monotonous. What about coming up with your own rules that still relate to the original mechanics of the game? Try some of the variations to change up the gameplay:
- For the game that adds mouse ears for each correct answer, start with your token full and work backwards. You have to answer correctly to keep the mouse ear. For each incorrect answer, one is taken away. As players whittle down to zero mouse ears, they are eliminated. The last person with mouse ears left wins the game.
- For the same trivia game, everyone gets to answer the question, no matter who landed on it. Whoever answers correctly gets the mouse ear. Make sure you have some kind of noisemaker or buzzer-type device to determine who chimed in first.
- Play a game similar to "make it-take it" in basketball. This works best if you play a Disney trivia game where you must get from start to finish first. Players attempt to answer questions. If they get it right, they move their piece ahead and continue to answer questions until they get one wrong. Then, play moves to the next person.
