Description from the packaging.

Eight mysterious dark satellites orbiting the Earth must be destroyed. Their onboard computers have malfunctioned, generating an enormous volume of questions that are strange, cryptic- even trivial! Knowledge must be combined with careful strategy if you are to gain access to the satellites and succeed in this mission!

Quizam! is a real strategy game- there is no randomness in the selection of questions or in your board position. It features full color graphics and music (which can be toggles on/off). Quizam! Supports one to eight players with eight different game boards, eight levels of difficulty, and approximately 2,000 multiple choice questions.

The game includes these subjects:

  • Fun Facts I & II: 15 minute celebrities, Sports and games, Popular culture, Television, Potpourri, Publications, Music, Movies.
  • School Days: Vocabulary, History, Art, Physical Science, Geography, Literature, Music, Life Science.

Additional question diskettes are or soon will be available including Science Fiction, Fun Facts III, Rock-on, and Dynamite Decades, with more to come. And if that's not enough...
