HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

Anyone else playing this ? I’ve played twice and the closest I got was question 4

HQ trivia is a live game show . After picking a username, you’ll need to give your phone number to the APP. It works like an interactive face time call.

Each game has 12 questions . In order to win , you need to answer every question correctly. One wrong answer and you’re eliminated. So it’s very nerve racking game.

Real money is given out at the end of the game. Yesterday’s was over $8,000. Over 40 people won so each winner received $200! They deposit the money into your PayPal account.

I know it sounds shady but from my research people are winning real money. The creator is the guy behind Vine. He was able to secure a few million in venture capital . Not sure how long the game will last considering bots are rumored to be cheating

The next game is tonight 8pm CST.

I hadn't heard of this but it sounds interesting. Reminds me of 1 vs 100 on Xbox 360, which was a blast while it was around.

The stories about the owners and the main host are fantastic. Look into it.

re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

Apparently the 2 that were in it until Q27 last week were both in a discord room being fed answers, and one was disqualified before the question for violating the TOS, and the other fat fingered the last Q, so that's why the prize rolled over. I figured there was no way 2 people really answered all those correctly in a row.

This app is definitely the future of online games.

There is a copycat called SwagIQ... and if you'd like to sign up with my referral, my username is JohnnyH12

Yeah, it's a real rush when you get so close to the end, got to Q11 about a month ago with some coworkers and it really gets your heart going, even if you only end up winning $6.73

re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

I have won it exactly once. It was the enormous sum of $2.86. I think that was near the height of the cheating apps before the creator pulled them.

I have been to question 12 one other time and 11 a few times.

Also, looks like they have started rolling out sponsors. Nike sponsored a $100k contest, and now tonight Ready Player One will sponsor one for $250k.

How about that discord chat?

Twice? Damn. I know it's not a lot of money, but it's still an accomplishment. Between this and Swag I still haven't won and I'm beginning to feel like an idiot, lol

re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

I won it through a combination of knowing about 60% of answers, some lucky guesses, and some were just typing really fast some keywords into Google and hoping I could scan search results for an answer.

I did not win either of those through knowledge of obscure trivia alone, but they always say it's better to be lucky than good.
