New Star Wars book asks all the right questions

September 9th, 2012 by bash Comments

Star Wars has millions and millions of fans all over the world…and it all started with one movie. This groundbreaking film was followed by five sequels, and since then the public’s Star Wars obsession has been fueled by books, merchandise, video games, fan fiction, and comic books.

Based on the original movie trilogy, Trivia From A Galaxy Far, Far Away contains 1,138 trivia questions and is designed for fans of all ages. This book was created to help the first and second generations of Star Wars fans to pass along the love of the movies to the third generation and beyond- the younglings who have only known the Clone Wars animated TV series. Other trivia books contain tough, expanded-universe questions, which are suitable for long-term fans, but not for the newer generation.

“Those trivia books are great for a geek like me but not for my sister or nephew” author Chris Smith says. “Anytime we played Star Wars Trivial Pursuit or another trivia book, I would always dominate. Why? Because I knew all the obscure, behind-the-scenes answers, and they didn’t. This book levels the playing field. When you sit down and play with friends and family, everyone has an equal chance of winning.” Because, let’s face it. You don’t just read Star Wars trivia books-you play them like a game. ie=UTF8&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
