Today, a bunch of us cool folks here played that hip new, live phone trivia game HQ. As a big trivia guy (and regular champion), I enjoyed myself. As a realist, I don't think it'll be around for too long.
HQ is an app that you can download on your iPhone (no quiz for you Android users). Then, twice a day on weekdays and once on weekends, it will notify you to join a live-hosted trivia game where you compete with many thousands of people to win real money.
It's simple. It's intuitive. It's mildly charming. And it doesn't stand a chance.
It's an extremely futuristic service that seamlessly connects people and creates a sense of community over something as basic as a trivia game. I was greatly appreciative of the thoughtful questions that seemed neither too hard nor too easy and the hosting (by "Quiz Daddy" Scott) went down pretty well.
