Garfield Trivia Game Title Card

Garfield Trivia Game is a 1989 computer game released for Apple II computers and IBM PC.[1] It was developed by EIS, Inc. and distributed by Developmental Learning Materials, Inc.


The game can be played by one player or a team. After entering name(s), four of the following seven categories may be selected for the game (each selectable by their corresponding number):

  • 1 Friends
  • 2 TV shows
  • 3 Dates/Facts
  • 4 Garfield
  • 5 Odds & Ends
  • 6 Wisdom

Each turn, a player spins to get a question from any of the four selected categories. If the spin lands in neither of the chosen four categories, the player will be given a "mystery box", which can give multiple things, such as extra points for the next question. When a type of question is chosen, the player may play it or pass. Each question is multiple-choice, with four answers available to choose from.

When a player gets a question right, Garfield will be shown dancing. When a wrong answer is given, Garfield will be shown laughing. Points will be added or deducted based on the results.
