Pre-registration for Intermedia Labs’ HQ Trivia is now open on Android. HQ Trivia is a unique trivia experience that promises players real cash prizes. The game bills itself as a live trivia game show, and that’s an accurate description of what the game or app experience is like. Players compete against each other by answering a series of trivia questions as the show’s host tries to create a fun environment for players. The players who answer every question correctly split a prize pool of real money (paid out through Paypal). The games take place live every day at 9 PM EST, and at 3 PM EST on weekdays.
HQ Trivia launched earlier this year on iOS. To prevent users from looking up the answers to each question online HQ Trivia only gives users a very limited amount of time in which they can answer each question. That also means that players have no time to think about the question, and if they can’t recall the answer they will have to go with their gut and guess from one of the given options. Games are also accompanied by live chat, similar to various live video platforms.
HQ Trivia is free. There is no official release date, but expect the game sooner rather than later based on the developer’s Twitter bio which promised a Christmas release.
Update:HQ Trivia is now available for download on Google Play as an unreleased (early access) app for some users, the developer’s target is to make it available for everyone by January 1st, 2018.
