If you’re bored by regular trivia questions and looking for a challenging game to really test your knowledge, you have to pick up the Wit’s End by Game Development Group. The most common comment in this game’s reviews is that the questions are downright challenging, so you know Wit’s End will put your trivia know-how to the test. This board game can be played with two to six people – however, if you want to play with teams, you can accommodate up to 18 players. Most reviewers agree the trivia game is best for older teens and adults because of the tough nature of the questions. In the box, you’ll find the game board, game cards, playing pieces, one die and instructions.
Silicon Flip : The rules of this game are very simple. The game begins by you flipping a virtual coin and predicting whether the coin will land heads or tails side up. If you are correct then you get 1 point, but if you are wrong then you are given a general knowledge quiz question to answer. If you get the question right then your score will remain unchanged, but if you get it wrong then you lose 1 point. This process is then repeated until you either run out of time – you only have 5 minutes to complete the game – or you reach the 10 points needed to win. More at Quiz game.
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.
