Product information

It's the game where the least likely answer is the best answer. Based on the witty and compelling BBC 1 TV quiz show, this game brings all the best features straight from the television studio to your living room.

How to play:

Each question has been surveyed by a group of 100 people who are asked to give as many answers as they can within 100 seconds. Questions are list based and will have numerous possible answers, for example.....Question ... "Name a film starring Tom Cruise. " For every one of the hundred asked that gives the same answer, the player, players or teams receive one point. So, if 75 people say "Top Gun", then that answer would be worth 75 points to players or teams in this round of the game. Unfortunately, on Pointless this would be a disastrous answer, because the aim of the game is to be the player, pair or team to score the least number of points. A far better answer would be, for example, "Ledged" which carries a score of only 12 points. Any answer given that none of the 100 people recalled would therefore be worth zero points; these are Pointless answers and are the holy grail for Pointless players. Who will carry off the Pointless Trophy amongst your family and friends ??

For 2-4 Players or Teams.

Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant game Had a great deal of fun with this game, used with family and friends. All enjoy playing it 17 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good fun Bought this as a Christmas present for my 82 year old Dad who loves the television program. We have just played it on Xmas day and he was gutted to loose to his 14 year old niece! It's not quite the same as the TV version however great fun was had by all. 25 December 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointing Unlike the previous reviewer, we don't rate this game highly at all. Rules are lengthy and unclear and the playing pieces are flat pieces of card 2cms in diameter. We have at least one new game every Christmas and this is the least enjoyable one I have bought. I purchased 'The Chase' as well. No contest. I am a fan of Pointless, the TV show, so was disappointed with the board game. 16 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Fun Rules not quite like the TV show but enjoyed by all the family nonetheless 04 January 2013
