What is it about?

Each game is composed of 12 general trivia questions with three multiple choice answers, and just ten seconds to answer. Games usually take about 10-15 minutes, and you get to see the pool of participants cut down live with each question. There’s a live streaming video of the host, comedian Scott Rogowsky, who reads the questions and interjects quite a bit of personality and comedy with the answers and flow between questions. The questions span the gamut of genres, and definitely deliver some difficulty even with three multiple choice guesses. Questions include pop culture, history, science, and more with the greatest challenge possibly coming from the ten second time limit. You can stumble over part of the question because you’re in a hurry as the ten seconds include the host reading the question.

Why we love it

HQ - Live Trivia Game Show has picked up steam quickly to the point that an average weekday game has over 300,000 players with weekend spots bringing in over 400,000 simultaneous users. At first I was skeptical of the appeal, but the game is simply fun to play to the point that you will try to set aside time in your day to play during the live airings. The cash appeal is definitely real, but just the trivia game is fun to play, with only 12 questions to go through that have a nice degree of difficulty. The questions are tough enough that a pool of over 300,000 is often whittled down to 100 or less winners. In the few games I have participated in I have seen winners of $9.93, $28.64, $46.28, and even one sole winner of $1500. The comment section is the only negative of the app with a rapid fire flow of a combination of spam, unreadable text strings, and complaints, which is very reminiscent of the Facebook Live feed it’s based on.
