Game Review: Terra

Players: 2-6
Playing Time: 45-60 min
Recommended: 10+

I have the hardest time with trivia games. Every question just seems so…well…trivial! I hate how I can get close to an answer, but as the saying goes: “Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.” Enter Terra, a trivia game from Bezier games! It’s a game where getting close counts for something!

Terra is a geography-based trivia game that tests you on everything from architecture and locations of historic landmarks to how many bat species are at Uluru. The system uses a series of markers to determine location, numbers, and lengths. While the exact correct answer is rewarded with 7 points, an answer adjacent to the correct answer is worth 3 points. Better than nothing, right?

Terra is purposefully hard and reassures you that most people won’t know the answers to this. With only 6 turns to get as many points as possible, the race is on to showcase your knowledge of planet Earth.

While there is a limited number of cards, the limited turn amount of 6 ensures that you won’t be going through too many. With more players, the game because part strategy as only one person can mark the correct answer. Do you bluff your opponents and sneak in with the right answer, or do you just pray to goodness that everyone else has the wrong answer?

I’d recommend this game to anyone who enjoys Trivial Pursuit, but also enjoys getting partial credit.
