Quiz games are hot and here are several reviews on this topic. HQ (iOS, Android) is a neat trivia game that’s taken mobile gaming by storm with its live daily trivia contests held daily at 9 p.m. ET. Weekdays sometimes feature 3 p.m. ET games, and the app has branched out with themed tie-ins, including a sports trivia mode and a new “HQ Words” game that has players guessing popular words and phrases. The icing on the cake? Players usually stand a chance to win a slice of a daily cash prize, though as of late, HQ has experimented with awarding points to victors in lieu of cash. Each game is made up of 12 multiple choice trivia questions, with players getting 10 seconds to answer each one. Get all of them right, and you can cash in on your share of whatever prize is at stake. The combination of accessible trivia questions, live hosted games, and real money payouts have turned this mobile upstart into a winner.
The question-and-answer format of most trivia games can get a little mundane, which is why games like Linkee by Bananagrams switch things up a little bit. Instead of simply answering questions in this trivia challenge, players race to figure out the connection between questions, shouting out the answer as soon as they have it. It can be played with anywhere from two to 30 people, and it’s best for players over age 14. In the box, you’ll receive 1,400 questions, as well as four pencils, four answer pads and a rule guide. To play, you’ll answer the four questions on each card, then try to figure out the link between them. When you figure it out, simply shout “Linkee” to win the round. Unlike many other trivia games, Linkee moves quickly, and games usually take around 30 minutes to complete – a nice and short game if you’re crunched for time.
Silicon Flip : The rules of this game are very simple. The game begins by you flipping a virtual coin and predicting whether the coin will land heads or tails side up. If you are correct then you get 1 point, but if you are wrong then you are given a general knowledge quiz question to answer. If you get the question right then your score will remain unchanged, but if you get it wrong then you lose 1 point. This process is then repeated until you either run out of time – you only have 5 minutes to complete the game – or you reach the 10 points needed to win. More at General knowledge game.
The app that started the craze. HQ Trivia is a daily trivia game show where you simply need to answer 12 questions to win a split of the pot. The daily weekday cash pot has risen to $5000 with a new tradition emerging for Sunday’s game – $25,000 with a non-stop stream of questions until players are whittled down to one lucky winner. It has turned regular host Scott Rogoswky into an internet celebrity as he provides an entertaining performance as the quiz master extraordinaire. The app itself has improved significantly since launching on iOS in October 2017 – stream quality (and most importantly, stability) is improving and the servers seem to be handling the larger influx of users better now since launching for Android. You can play it alone, but it’s much more fun to play in a big group.
