Trivia is king? Trivia has long had a reputation for providing killer content. Just look at past trivia successes as ÂTrivial PursuitÂ and ÂJeopardyÂ. ItÂs a wonder that no game has yet emerged as the premier online trivia game. Introduce SixQuestions.com (http://www.sixquestions.com), a game that rewards players for both asking great Trivia Questions and answering Trivia questions correctly. The game offers huge prizes and the most up to the minute trivia available.
Already 300,000 members and growing, it seems there is some appeal to the format. The game runs on a points based system. Points are redeemed as good as cash in the extensive prize catalog. Players receive points in their account each day they login and also receive points for doing just about anything positive on the site. This includes writing trivia questions. Players submit up to 20 questions each day and receive one point every time their question is published. These questions all go into a central database and are then redistributed in the form of six question quizzes. The members wager their points each hour on these quizzes and at the end of every hour the winnings are paid out. After each quiz is taken the player has the opportunity to rate the questions they were given. This process weeds out the bad questions from the active database of questions. The result is a very manicured database of a few hundred thousand questions that has been simmered down from millions.
"Its really quite amazing the way the system works itself out,Â said Christopher Hansen, Content Director for SixQuestions.com. ÂThe database might get hot with trivia questions about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes but once that story gets old those types of questions start getting dropped from the system. It all works out in a very natural manner.Â
SixQuestions (http://www.sixquestions.com) launched in March of 2004 and is based in New York City.
