My friends and I likes to play Trivial Pursuit without using the board.
We play it like this:
- Throw a die to determine what color you get to answer.
- Ask a question, if the answer is correct you get a point.
- If enough points are awarded you win
We would like to modify the game as to include the colors. There are 6 colors. The game could then be won by completing all colors or answering enough questions.
We would like the the effort to complete it by numbers to be similar to that of completing it by colors. So the required number of correct answers should be the same as where it is likely that all the colors has been collected.
What is the number of correct answers one needs to acquire to make it probable, P>=0.5, that all colors are collected?
We dabbled in a few sums before realizing this was over our heads.
