The Bottom Line: Great, fun, party game.
We bought Trivial Pursuit, the Millennium Edition to play at our New Year's Ever Party. It was a lot of fun for everyone. I really liked the fact that there were more modern questions, that everyone might know.

Everything comes in a nice, small, bright, metal case. The round game board folds in fourths, and fits right in on top of the cards and pieces. There are 3 packages of cards to play with. We only played with the cards marked A, that way B and C can be used the next time we play the game. Each deck gets put into an upright card holder that you just pass around. The pieces are clear plastic of the different colors, very retro!!
The categories are the same as the original Trivial Pursuit: People and Places, Arts and Entertainment, History, Science and Nature, Sports and Leisure, and Wild Card (You don't know what it could be about). The rules are also the same. Roll the die and move that many places. If you answer the question correctly, you get to roll again. You get pie pieces when you answer a question correctly in the category headquarter. First one to get all 6 pie pieces gets to go for the middle. The others then get to pick a category, and you win if you answer it correctly.
The thing I liked the most was the new questions. Here is one from the Arts and Entertainment: What 1978 hit noted: "They have everything for young men to enjoy / You can hang out with all of the boys"? Answer: YMCA There are a lot of current event, fun type questions like that.
My only complaint is that is takes a long time to play. You also need several people to play, so you don't get to use it that often.
