    "General Knowledge" makes it sound like a trivia-type game, though licensed through the "for Dummies" series which, oddly, isn't a trivia series in itself.

    Curious to see if this hits the US.

    It's not the first "for dummies" game to come out for the DS. I know there's a game compilation licensed "for dummies".

    2846 - Travel Games for Dummies (USA)

    So yeah, it's possible this is simly a trivia based game.

    Would have been hilarious if this was 'French for Dummies', since it was dumped right after the French version of Heart Gold [​IMG]

    "General Knowledge" -- wouldn't that be common sense?

    It IS a quiz game, similar to trivial pursuit where you have different categories

    There's 3 Main section
    General Knowledge quiz
    Specific Knowledge quiz
    Mini Games

    In General Knowledge Quiz:
    You spin a wheel & you get asked questions about that subject
    Get a score @ the end of each round +points for right answers - points for wrong
    Repeat for 6 'rounds'

    Doesn't seem to be any 'unlockables' so it's just quiz game to get highest score possible

    Isn't the point of the 'For Dummies' stuff to give general knowledge to people?

    General Knowledge? Even "Random Bullshit for Dummies" would've been more interesting.

    well if they made language learning, i think tht would be good too though this is different from what the books have been published about
    maybe they could make programming for dummies

    Hey! Are they like, selling the hint book to this anytime soon? dur-hur....

    Ok, ok....if I actually was a dummy and thought this game was a good idea, and I actually went out and bought and played it, would it give me the "general knowledge" to realize that I should have never bought it in the first place?

    You know, I actually see this selling. Parents will buy it for their kids as a joke. The child will not appreciate the joke, but the parents will laugh.....hard.
