As you can see above the game is nice and compact with the board folding out from the side of the box. Your first task is to find something around you that can act as a playing piece and off you go! There are no dice in the game, and as mentioned above, your movements are decided by how many points you get from the question cards. Your first card will always be a 'C' card which stands for 'Curious' and covers a wide range of subjects on specific topics such as a country, a person or topics such as Famous Explorers.
Your 'D' cards cover entertainment topics including sport and your 'S' cards are aimed at what they call "school of life" subjects, typically what you find under lifestyle genres at a typical quiz. The 'K' stands for Knowledge and those cards are questions that zone in on Science, Nature and Geography. It is useful to get to know these topics as it may influence how many points you play for on a previous question so you can plan when to land.
In general, a trivia/quiz game lives or dies for me on the quality of questions. Does CDSK have the level of questions to make this game work? In essence yes, the harder end of the questions will stretch even the most ardent quizzer but I would add in a warning that the first three questions on each quad are pitched at a very low, and sometimes odd, level where everybody is going to know it. After one play or a quick peak at a card, you will soon know what the balance is.
