You don't need to be a genius - or Genus - to play Trivial Pursuit - Young Players' Edition.

Like its big brother - launched a couple of months back - it contains 3,000 questions on two tapes but this time it's for people who've heard of Spandau Ballet or Duran Duran. Do you know whether a lake on Mars would boil or freeze, or which organ of your body is bean-shaped?

If you've played the Genus Edition you'll find no differences between the two master games. Both include the same score panels and board design. TP, the lovable (?) question master with the big nose is still as cheeky (irritating?) as ever and you've still got to be honest as to whether you've answered the questions correctly.

All that's changed is the question set. All the posers (not the players, you fool) are new - more in keeping with the youthful theme. There are, for instance, questions on Sports and Hobbies, Good Times (sic), and the natural world. If you already own the Genus Edition those questions can be purchased on one of Domark's new Uniload cassettes. The same cassette will load into most of the popular computers so, if you've got a Commodore or Amstrad machine as well as a Spectrum - with one of the master games - you can play it on all your machines.

Baby Boomer is, apparently, on its way with more questions next month. I just can't wait.

More questions, more categories, but the master game is the same. It's still a fabulous game.
