Saw this morning HQ has linked up with Nike and they'll be doing a $100K prize for their games today. Does anybody else play this? I've tried to get into it a couple times but always get frustrated when I run into some b.s. question I feel like I should know the answer to.

Love it. Scott drops Phish references constantly.

I do the Sundays because they are $25,000 winner take all. They have so many players that their $2,500 prizes during the rest of the week time slots were pretty much coming down to a few dollars when split between the winners. Last night had 1.9 million players competing for $50,000 winner take all.

We play pretty much every night, think the furthest we have made it is question 9. Don't really know why I keep playing since I estimate my chances of winning at about .8% and the hosts are annoying as hell. Probably because I don't have anything better to do usually.

I've gotten sick of it pretty quick. The first 2-3 questions are usually a joke. Then questions 4 is impossible. It just turns into a guessing game. They have a lot of questions that pretty much no one will know but two of the answers will be something most people have probably heard of. The answer is NEVER those. So I don't like how its turned into more of a game of them trying to trick you into answering a certain (wrong) answer to get people out instead of just straight trivia.

I won $3.84 last week. I can usually get 9 out of 12, but get tripped up a lot around #6-7.

I have won four times, I think I’m up to $6.85. The questions seem tougher when the stakes are higher. I think the husband is up over $12, might as well retire now.

I'll play it with my daughter -- we both have the app on our phones. If we get to a question neither of us are sure about, we'll each pick a different answer, so at least one of us can keep going.

I don’t play as much as husband does, if dinner is late for whatever reason of kid sports, I am usually busy. It is better if we play at same time, he is hopeless on music since about 1990, and I’m not great with science stuff and he has a physics degree.

Was anybody else playing a night they had a glitch and had to restart maybe four times? The answer to the first question was apple but it kept saying that was wrong. I think we eventually won that night and got maybe 28 cents.

I've been playing HQ for a few months and haven't won. Anyone else play CashShow or Halftime Live? I've cashed out $30 on CashShow, but haven't won Halftime Live yet. HTL is all sports trivia. CashShow is pretty much like HQ.
