Is Older Really Wiser?


Friday, March 26, 2010 17:20 GMT

EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Youngsters under 30 may be tech savvy, but are they wiser than their elders?

TRIVIAL PURSUIT, the classic trivia game, is in hot pursuit of answering that question through the ultimate online showdown – the TRIVIAL PURSUIT Experiment: Battle Of The Generations.

They’re inviting the under-30 and 30-plus crowds to duke it out in a game of knowledge on trivialpursuitexperiment.com to see which generation really knows more.

Those up for the challenge can log on, enter their birth date, and begin answering trivia questions on behalf of their team.

Each correct answer earns a point for the player’s generation.

The battle should finally determine which age group supreme: The youngins who’ve spent most of their lives texting and surfing the web, or the elders who have more life experience.

Players can answer questions from TRIVIAL PURSUIT categories like Entertainment, History, and Sports & Leisure. As of press time, the “Over 30s” side is ahead on the scoreboard.
