Default HQ Trivia App

Just wondering if anyone else has downloaded the HQ App. It's great for trivia buffs as you have the chance to win $25,000.

You have to correctly answer 12 multiple choice questions, with 10 seconds to answer per question. If you get all 12 correct you win $2,500 divided by however many people also went 12 for 12.

They do two rounds a day, one at 3pm Eastern (so 1pm Mountain?) and again at 9pm Eastern (so 7 Mountain?).

It's HQ Trivia through the Apple iStore or Google Play store.

Use the referral code jonpatterson

I tend to get about half way before I over think an answer and knock myself out.

I play it, it's really fun and shows how stupid I really am. Recommend it.

I played it for a bit but found it gets a little irritating. There's so much pre-amble from the irritating host, explains the rules every time and makes a ton of dumb jokes. And you're not likely to ever win anything, and even if you did it's often like $5 because it's split so many ways. And then you can't even cash that in since you need at least $25 won total before you can.

It's a cool idea, and it's pretty sweet that one guy won $25K the other day (but again, that's one person out of millions that have played it), I just found it got tiresome.

This was exactly my experience. I found the video annoying and, eventually, I couldn't be bothered to join at quiz time because of it.
