If you love all things Disney and trivia games are your idea of a good time, you probably would have a blast playing the Wonderful World of Disney Trivia game. The Disney trivia rules are pretty straightforward (especially if you've played similar trivia board games before, such as Trivial Pursuit) and can be adapted to your own interests. Time to put all those times you've watched your favorite Disney movie to good use!
Rules for Disney Trivia Board Game, Wonderful World of Disney Trivia
The Wonderful World of Disney Trivia board game is easy to set up and even easier to play, especially if you watch Disney movies or follow Disney lore even a little. With 1,600 trivia questions geared toward adults, and another 800 questions just for kids, this game is perfect for players age 6 and up, though younger ones could definitely play as well, especially if teamed up with an older player.
You need at least 2 players (and up to 6) and the game takes around 45 minutes to finish playing.
- Unfold the game board and separate the kids' questions from the grown-up questions.
- Each player picks a token to represent them on the board.
- The youngest player goes first and rolls the die, moving their token that many spaces. The person to the player's left selects a card and reads the question that corresponds to the color the player landed on. The categories are Animation, Personalities, Song, Film, and Mousellaneous.
- If the question is answered correctly, then that player gets a mouse-ear (as opposed to a wedge like in Trivial Pursuit.)
- If the question is answered incorrectly, then play goes to the next person.
- When a player fills the token, then they must get to the end and answer one last question.
As you can see, the rules are basically the same as Trivial Pursuit, just with a Disney spin.
What About Your Own Disney Trivia Rules?
Sometimes, 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.
Easy to Learn
Most Disney Trivia board games have rules that are easy to pick up and play. But if you happen to lose to rules and it's been a while since you've played the game, these instructions should help. Of course, you can always come up with your own rules, too. Who knows, your version could be better!
