Default HQ Trivia

Anyone play this?

My wife and her friends were obsessed with this for a while.

But we still play from time to time.

Everyone says Scott Rogowsky is annoying, as well as his fill-in Sarah Pribis.

I think he's annoying, but most of it is fill-in material between questions. I think technical difficulties add to the annoyance.

I do think Sarah is HOT tho'

I play once in a while. Never won money but have gotten to the final question twice. I think if you had a group to play with you could get some winners every now and then.

I think Scott is fine honestly.

Sarah <3

Scott grows on you. he was super-obnoxious to me the first couple of times but now it's like an auctioneer patter or something, just part of the atmosphere.

haven't won yet, got pretty far the last couple of nights.

HQ Will definitely make it into "I Love The 2010s" if they still do that. It just has that feel to it.

Started playing last week, best I have done is Q8. I get to a question where I have no freaking clue and simply have to guess...I'm a bad guesser.
