I love/loved Trivial Pursuit! My favorite categories are/were Science & Nature and Arts & Literature. No, I didn't study the cards. I like to win, but it isn't necessary for me as it is for some people.
I LOVED Trivial Pursuit when it first came out! I can still see the box of cards and all the category colors. Entertainment (pink) and Arts & Literature (brown) were my favorite, but I could hold my own with Science & Nature (green) and usually with Sports & Leisure (orange). If it was a Geography (blue) or History (yellow) question, I was in big trouble - LOL.
And yes, I'll admit it ... I'm guilty of studying the cards. I was the youngest in my family and always trying to prove I was as smart as my big brother and sister. 😀
