Anyone else playing this? Only for iOS currently, but Android app should launch soon. In a nutshell: two times a day you open your app and answer questions that a live host gives you. If you keep guessing correctly, you keep playing. Those who make it through all twelve get to split a cash pot.

There’s a chat room involved while the game goes on. Sometimes the game glitches. Last night the host was inexplicably replaced by someone who was terrible. It’s quite the internet event.

It's the worst and I love it. People coming together to spam a live chatroom while an unfunny but charming host gives you an opportunity to split a $2000 jackpot thousands of different ways as long as you know where the pineal gland is.

So does it farm your personal information?

Make no bones about it: this thing is meant to distract and conquer the population at certain times during the day. It's just so dang fun.

They teased an $18k round 15 minutes before east coast New Years, then the game glitched out while the host improvised and the 2018 countdown happened. No trivia whatsoever. In front of 700k users and the Android beta launch. :haha:

I’m so into everything this game it’s sickening.

The Giant Bomb folks love this game and have been talking about it for a couple weeks.

Did you hear about the guy who owns the company?
