Anyone else playing this trivia app?

It's a one vs. one trivia challenge with 7 questions in any of over 400 topics, including some good pop culture categories within movies TV and literature...
It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. and we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

For those of us playing this, the category they added yesterday for 4/1 was truly bizarre. I levelled it to 20 for the titles in case they remove it.

It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

General Nonsense (which plays off the General Knowledge category name). It was only available for April Fool's Day and then removed.

Every once in a while this shows back up for a few hours with the title "<missing>" and is playable. Their coders are extremely sloppy, as missing categories show up all the time, and they left a pair of debugging categories exposed for a full 6 hours or so in preparation for their World Cup co-branded tie-in. Lately all new "<missing>" categories have been unaccessible by the game and I have not seen the General Nonsense missing show up since that point.

I rather enjoyed playing through "Jokes" to the first title benchmark. "Riddles" hasn't been quite as entertaining, due to some clunky phrasing on some questions.

Haven't seen riddles yet. Jokes was definitely a lot of fun.

Not yet to the first title on that one.
