I uninstall and reinstall HQ trivia even when it pisses me off to no end.

I understand the frustration. Last night, I finally answered all 12 questions correctly, and won a whopping 57 cents.

Is it app only? We can't play on a desktop computer?

I know those are so quaint and all.

I get annoyed at all the chatter - just start it at the given time and play the game! That's just one of the bothersome things, but when my 10 year old grandson downloaded it on my phone and from what few tidbits I pick on on that annoying chatter scrolling the entire time, it seems to be overloaded with very young people. That's great as I hope they learn something. Once one manages to answer all 12 questions and you end up with less than a dollar, I don't think it's worth any stress. Sometimes I just watch to see what I can learn. Lots of way out there questions, that's for sure. JMHO of course!

Swipe the chat away! To the right, I think.

Last night they gave away $25,000 on HQ and each winner received around $555. On the list of winners was at least one name matching a person who posts on this site. Anybody a little richer today?

As for my own (very limited) success, I have won a total of $2.79 on HQ and $1.83 on CashShow. I won't be quitting my day job anytime soon.

I didn't notice, but KT won three or so months ago.

Why not post the name? Just go to the Leaderboard and you'll see the top winners from This Week or All Time.

A user named Weyoun (probably ours, but can't guarantee it) won $564.38 last week (I'll assume last night). He has won 3 times.

Also, he hasn't been here since Oct. 6th of last year.

Wow, scrolling through the All Time leasers there is chad1m who has won a total of $4,556.28. He has played 346 games and won 44 times.

Call me suspicious, but he's not playing like the rest of us are.

Another that raises my eyebrows; tstst. Has won 36 out of 285 times for $5,365.40

Yes, Weyoun was who I saw among the winners last night. I just thought he (she?) might want to announce their win themselves.

There is one player who I play pub trivia with regularly here in LA who has won at least 20 times (3 or 4 times in the last few days alone). Former 5 time J! champion...and second runner-up in the TOC.

They have a new feature called friends. You've got to update the version. It's on the upper left of the main page. I think they said you will be able to see what answer your friends have chosen, but I haven't seen it in actions yet. I have tlynn as a friend. My handle there is burtflemm. Let's all add each other and see how it works and if it helps. Post your handles here.

Still no extra life hack for android :(
