Re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

So, any of you folks one of the 14 from tonight? That pay out was kind of insane for this ($1,750 per person).

2 million played, 14 lasted to the last question and with those odds you realistically think one of them is here? (I died on Q8 for the record.)

What pisses me off about HQ is how hard it gets up until the last question and I swear to God, Q12 (or Q15) is SO much easier than the 4-5 questions before it, yet somehow MOST of the people get it wrong anyway. Like HOW? So it's like "Man, if I could have gotten to the last question...."

Cash Show is a good alternative. The payoffs are much lower but the live hosts (only on the evening shows) are a lot less annoying, you're only playing against 10% of the HQ crowd and honestly, if you know what you're doing, (there's always a trick question, recognize it), you'll win at least a few times a week.

I'm up $9 this weekend, which is $9 more than I will ever win on HQ.

Sorry, I have to, help yourself and me out... invitation code is 9KPJ4F.

And ONLY play on the weekends!

Interesting. Usually the last question is something crazy like "What is the atomic weight of vanadium?"

Re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

Yeah, I've been playing this for the past couple months. It's a lot of fun, but I've never won. I made it to Q10 or 11 once, which was exciting. I usually tap out around Q7-8.

Re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

I still do this, and have never made it past Q10.

I also started doing the "Cash Show" that sydonesia mentioned. It's not as polished, but it's the same thing, except you are more likely to win some pennies. Around Q6 each question is a payoff (worth more for Q7, Q8, etc..), so you do build up cash over time, and then you can cash out when you hit $10.
