    If so, have you won any money yet?

    For those who aren't playing yet, HQ Trivia is an app (iOS and Android). It's a live trivia game show, where you answer 12 multiple choice questions, and you get 10 seconds per question to answer. If you get all 12 right, you split the cash prize with anyone else who gets them right. If you get 1 question wrong, you're out and you can watch the rest of the game.

    It's usually a $2,500 prize per game (twice on weekdays, once on Saturday), so winners get anywhere from $1 - $200+ each.

    On Sundays they bump it up to $25,000 or $50,000, and 15 questions. Also lately they have been doing a '1 winner takes all' game where they ask as many questions as necessary to have only 1 winner left.

    Credit to JFK for posting about it when it was new (did a search after I wrote up this post), it seems to be a lot bigger now. About 500k - 2 million people play each time.

    I was playing for awhile last fall but got bored of it. I got to the second to last question once but never won. It's a genius idea for an app though even if it's some black mirror s--- (even the host seems str8 from BM). Maybe I'll turn notis back on

    Recently stopped playing but my housemates and I played it everyday for a while. We used to always get to around Q9 which was annoying.

    One night we were drinking we got to the final question but got it wrong, so we kinda stopped playing after that lol.

    Amazing idea for a game but in reality the chances of winning aren’t that great and if you do win—due to the amount of people playing—you don’t get much of the money. Most I’ve been with in a game with is 1.9 million others which is crazy. On rare occasions I have seen people take the prize alone and win some big money though. Overall it’s really fun. Jimmy Kimmel actually hosted it once

    As of tonight the minimum prize is now $5,000, so today’s winners got $312 :sweatt:
    Looks like I’m late to the fad! It’s cool you guys got so close. The furthest I’ve got is only Q9 so far but I’m determined to win a few bucks
    haha yep I remember that, I got it wrong. Now I realize a lot of the times the obvious “wrong” answer is actually the right one and it still gets me out a lot
