Trivie – Battle of Wits by Trivie Inc is a simple and familiar Trivia game, having the largest Trivia library in the app store! There are over 75,000 questions scattered throughout 300 different categories as specific as “Star Trek Captains” or as vague as “Games”! You can play against a Facebook friend, Game Center friend or a random opponent. There are in-app purchases available ranging from $ 0.99 to $ 9.99 for various trivia packs. You can choose to play Trivie – Battle of Wits by connecting to Facebook or simply making an account. Sometimes, I like to opt out of the connections through Facebook. I don’t always want my friends knowing about my 101 different gaming addictions!
Trivie – Battle of Wits is played against an opponent through a series of five questions in numerous rounds. An example of a question in the “Earth Science” category might be, “Used by Aztecs in weapons, what volcanic glass is sometimes found in nuggets called Apache tears?” You’re given four multiple-choice answers. In this question’s case, they were: Pumice, Pele’s hair, Obsidian and Jet. You get 15 seconds to answer each question. The sooner you answer the question, the more points you earn. As the time passes, one answer after another will be eliminated. This will definitely help you narrow down the answer, but you’ll also earn less points.
Trivie – Battle of Wits offers a feature I absolutely love. It’s called “Tell Me More”. It’ll pop up sometimes when you get an answer wrong and sometimes when you get it right! It’s just a fact about the question you just answered. For the question, “Formerly known for its silk, the city of Koromo was renamed for what future Camry manufacturer in 1959?” The “Tell Me More” feature said, “This is, in fact, another car named for the Toyoto Crown, since Camry is an Anglicization of kanmuri, which is Japanese for “crown.” How interesting, right? Now these “Tell Me More” tid bits, only pop up once in a while, so tap them when you can! Trivie – Battle of Wits is quite a challenging game, depending on how well you know the category you’re in! There are so many categories to choose from; you’ll never get bored!
