London (PRWEB) December 14, 2006
The world's biggest question, devised by Oak&Acorn, is over 700 words long and has 50 answers. The question covers entertainment, news, celebrities and events from the past year. It was released on the 12th December 2006 on the Oak&Acorn website http://www.oakandacorn.co.uk.
The first person to email all of the correct answers will win a copy of Oak&Acorn's new board game Knowalot and the 'World's Biggest Question 2006' certificate. The majority of people will be able to get 30 out of the 50 answers without trying, just from watching TV, reading newspapers and magazines or listening to the radio. Only a few people will be able to answer more than 40. So far no-one has been able to complete the challenge and complete the question.
Game inventor Phil Forshaw thought up the World's biggest question when he was researching trivia questions for his new board game Knowalot.
'I wanted to create a real challenge with the world's biggest question. At the same time I wanted to show people just how much they already know. You know more than you think' says Forshaw.
This insight was the inspiration for the board game Knowalot. All of the questions are based on things everyone knows at least a little bit about, from the Spice Girls to the Space Race.
He continues: 'The idea was to create a game anyone can play. It's not about how much you've learned or how many obscure facts you can hold in your head. It's about having fun. Everyone enjoys playing a game at Christmas that the whole family can join in. Knowalot is ideal.'
Knowalot is a perfect game for Christmas, for parties or with friends and family. Knowalot is a great gift for anyone that loves playing games at Christmas.
Knowalot is a fun, new trivia game with a difference. Players bid on how many questions they can answer on a well-known subject. It could be anything from the Spice Girls to the Space Race. Each question card has a short summary of that subject but with key words and phrases missing. All you have to do is fill in the blanks. A question on your favourite film, bid five. If you get all five right, you win a brain, five brains and you've won! For two or more players, aged 15+. Average games last about an hour. Available from Hamleys and Oak&Acorn's website. Retail price £29.99
