Co-inventor of Trivial Pursuit passes away.

One of my favorite games, which I grew up playing with my mom and her friends, sometimes, and now still idly half-play on dates or with friends at Mountain Sun, where well-loved sets are available to patrons.

With big thanks and best wishes to Mr. Haney’s family.
