Quiz games are becoming more and more popular and here are some reviews on this topic. HQ (iOS, Android) is a neat trivia game that’s taken mobile gaming by storm with its live daily trivia contests held daily at 9 p.m. ET. Weekdays sometimes feature 3 p.m. ET games, and the app has branched out with themed tie-ins, including a sports trivia mode and a new “HQ Words” game that has players guessing popular words and phrases. The icing on the cake? Players usually stand a chance to win a slice of a daily cash prize, though as of late, HQ has experimented with awarding points to victors in lieu of cash. Each game is made up of 12 multiple choice trivia questions, with players getting 10 seconds to answer each one. Get all of them right, and you can cash in on your share of whatever prize is at stake. The combination of accessible trivia questions, live hosted games, and real money payouts have turned this mobile upstart into a winner.
If you and your friends are TV and movie buffs, the Best of TV & Movies by Spin Master Games is a must-have for your next gathering. This trivia game will put your knowledge to the test with questions about hundreds of popular films and shows – you’ll quickly find out who spends too much time in front of the TV. The Best of TV & Movies comes with a game board, 400 trivia cards and six playing pieces. It’s best for adults, and you can play with between two and six people. The questions cover dozens of popular movies and shows, from “Grease” to “Glee,” “The Godfather” and “Modern Family.” As you play, you’ll have to identify logos and answer questions about characters, among many other aspects of the movies and shows. There are also special cards that let you pick a new question, skip a turn and silence your trash-talking competitors.
Silicon Flip : SiliconFlip is a free to play online quiz game that will thoroughly test your prediction and general knowledge skills. Since its launch on the 16th of February 2019 the game has been won 1.6471% of the time. The quickest way for you to win a game is to correctly predict a 10 length sequence of coin flips. Unfortunately, the odds of doing this is around 1/1024, which makes this a game of skill rather than a game of pure luck. More on General knowledge quiz.
SwagIQ stands out from the rest on this list because it doesn’t directly dole out cash. Instead, you play to win SwagBucks, which can then be exchanged for cash via PalPal, or redeemed for gift cards for popular sites like Amazon or Steam, stores such as Barns & Noble, JCPenney, and Bath & Body Works, or even donate your winnings to charities including Doctors Without Borders or ALS. SwagIQ also lets you earn points based on recruiting new players, and you’ll get a 10% cut of whatever they make playing the app (which, admittedly, sounds a bit like a trivia pyramid scheme to me). You can also spend your SwagBucks to buy back into games, and you earn a few SwagBucks each time you play. 100 SwagBucks convert to 1 USD, but there are deals to be had if you redeem your SwagBucks for gift cards.
