Friends was and is a hugely popular TV series that has become a cultural phenomenon ... "Friends: The one with the Trivia" will never be considered a phenomenon. However, it is a decent party game for a gathering of "Friends" friends.
The game play is pretty lame - the voices that read the questions get annoying very quickly. The clips are funny, but there aren't enough of them. Also the "scoring" system leaves a lot to be desired. Windows in their apartment building light up with each correct answer. Once you make it around the building with all of your lights on... you win! Easy enough you say - but unless you are a true expert (like another reviewer apparently was) the questions are pretty tough. I played with my wife for about an hour and I knew only about three of the answers (I am just a "Casual" viewer) while my wife knew about 30% (Even though she has wateched every episode several times) of the correct answers. So I certainly can't say the game is easy.
The "overall" fun factor is somewhat there- especially, if you use it as a party game. As a whole, I would say that this game rates about the same the board game "Scene It". Just don't buy either with real high expectations!
