Have you heard of the craze sweeping the nation… called HQ? No? Well, let me tell you about it.

HQ is an app for your iPhone or Android. Every day at 3 pm and 9 pm, you are invited to join a live game with hundreds of thousands of people, vying to win the jackpot by attempting to answer 12 questions correctly. You are eliminated as soon as you get an incorrect answer and you are only given 10 seconds to answer each question. They start as easy questions and get harder as you go. It’s basically a live version of millennial Jeopardy and Bob and I are addicted. We haven’t gotten past question 8 yet, but we keep trying.

The jackpot prize amount changes each game. On New Year’s Eve, it was $18k, and it’s been $10k a few times, but typically it’s $1k-2k. All players that are able to correctly answer all 12 questions split the jackpot. Your take-home prize is based on the jackpot amount and the total number of winners.

Yes, there are flaws in the game. It lags often and they’ve had to stop the game and come back later due to connection issues. But, that’s what happens when so many people connect to one app all at once. I’ve seen over 1 million people playing, but that’s only happened once. Most of the time, there are anywhere from 600-800 thousand people playing.

If you haven’t checked this game out yet, you really need to do so! What’s the worst that could happen?

Full disclosure, I get a free life each time someone joins using my code. But if I win the big money jackpot, I will split it with you.
