Quiz games are becoming more and more popular and here are several news on this topic. Trivia Crack returns with a new and improved version that does more than just add a fresh coat of paint. Trivia Crack 2 (Android, iOS) includes new game modes such as a head-to-head time attack mode called Tower Challenge as well as daily challenges and tasks – all of which you can play against your Facebook friends or random opponents. The Classic mode that Trivia Crack is built on is still here, as players compete to collect themed charcters that mirror trivia categories. This version has added more characters to collect depending on the question themes. The app’s advertising does come on a bit strong in Trivia Crack 2, though a VIP subscription removes ads and provides in-game perks such as endless lives, special packs and discounts. You can also stick to the original Trivia Crack (Android, iOS), which has just introduced a new live trivia showdown mode featuring cash prizes, very much in the style of HQ Trivia.
If you’re bored by regular trivia questions and looking for a challenging game to really test your knowledge, you have to pick up the Wit’s End by Game Development Group. The most common comment in this game’s reviews is that the questions are downright challenging, so you know Wit’s End will put your trivia know-how to the test. This board game can be played with two to six people – however, if you want to play with teams, you can accommodate up to 18 players. Most reviewers agree the trivia game is best for older teens and adults because of the tough nature of the questions. In the box, you’ll find the game board, game cards, playing pieces, one die and instructions.
Silicon Flip : SiliconFlip is a free to play online quiz game that will thoroughly test your prediction and general knowledge skills. Since its launch on the 16th of February 2019 the game has been won 1.6471% of the time. The quickest way for you to win a game is to correctly predict a 10 length sequence of coin flips. Unfortunately, the odds of doing this is around 1/1024, which makes this a game of skill rather than a game of pure luck. More at Quiz game.
Okay, so Quiz Biz is a bit interesting. I’ll fully admit having never heard of Live.me before it launched it’s own trivia game, but it’s a natural fit. Live.me is a live broadcasting video chat app that’s looking to build a community of influencers across a wide spectrum of topics and personalities. It’s available in 85 countries and has millions of downloads from the Google Play Store. The platform itself is not for me – I haven’t spent any time checking out anything on Live.me beyond the daily Quiz Biz trivia show but the experience here is arguably better in so many ways. The cash prizes are always as big or bigger than HQ – on Super Bowl Sunday they hosted three separate games with $50,000 jackpots. Since it’s built upon a seemingly well-populated user base from the existing Live.me community the games feel lively and popular while still remaining small enough to ensure bigger cashouts, and the stream quality overall is way smoother than HQ on its best days. And yet.
