How to play?

Collect points

The quiz game is played in rounds, which consist of six multiple-choice questions each. The goal is to collect as many points as possible by quickly providing the correct answers (one correct answer per question).

Watch the time

Each question has a time setting according to its difficulty. Hurry up when you submit your answer, because you will receive the remaining seconds as points.  

Double your points

If you enter a group game, the fastest player will get double points.

Hit the jackpot

All points that are lost in the game are collected in the jackpot. If you click on the jackpot, you bet all your points against the jackpot. Hurry up again, because only the first player to click the jackpot and to respond correctly, will get those points.

Climb up the high score

The points you collect in each round will be added to your personal high score. If you play as part of a team, the points you collect will also be added to your team high score.

How to play as part of a team

If you play as part of a team, the points you collect will be added to your individual and to your team high score. Working together in teams is recommended as helping each other to solve even the most difficult questions results in fast growing team high scores. At the same time, you improve your chances to win as an individual player! Please note, that you can only compete as part of a team if your organization has registered with us.
