Trivia Crack is an addictive android quiz game. It has two modes which are Classic and Challenge. In Classic mode, the aim is to answer questions correctly to collect characters. In Challenge mode, you and your opponents will be asked random questions. Whoever gets the maximum questions right wins the game. A mini leader board shows profiles of each player and the number of questions answered correctly by them.
It is reminiscent of a quiz game you’d go to your neighbourhood sports bar to compete in, and it has more than a passing resemblance to the gameplay from the classic board game, Trivial Pursuit. Whether you start a game with a friend or get a random match, each player takes turns attempting to answer questions from six different categories. The categories are art, geography, entertainment, sports, science, and history.
Tips And Tricks
- Google is Your Best Friend:
Most questions are randomly asked to you and your opponents. Some questions might be easy to answer, but the game will not let you win easily. Several questions are submitted by users, so expect some tough ones from them.
You will get 60 seconds to answer a question. All you need to do is type the main keywords of the question on Google search and press enter. Here’s how to do this:
- Before the start of play, be ready with your laptop. Open your browser and go to Google.com. You may use another mobile to search for answers on Google in case you are traveling.
- When the question appears on your mobile screen, do not type the entire question in the search box.
- Use The Chrome Extension
Go to the Chrome web store and search for “Trivia Cracker”. Install and download this extension to your browser. The extension will be beside the speaker icon. The correct answer will be selected automatically.
- Spend Lives Wisely:
You have only three lives. Because multiplayer gameplay is asynchronous, you may have to wait for hours, even days before you can spin the wheel.
When lives refill after 60 minutes, use them to play another round of Classic or Challenge game. This way, you’ll get to start another game while waiting for your opponent from the first game. You can later go back to the first game when your turn comes.
You can get free lives from your Facebook friends. Just tap on the heart icon and then tap on the “Ask your friends” button. Make sure you have linked your account to Facebook.
- How to Earn Coins:
You earn coins by unlocking achievements. You will need to complete simple tasks such as winning games, signing in with Facebook and answering questions if you want to unlock achievements. You will get a full list of results by tapping on the three-line icon at the top-left corner of the screen.
- Extra Spins to the Rescue
Winning a challenge earns you three coins. Collect coins to use them on additional spins. Extra spins can be extremely useful in situations where the spinner stops at an unwanted topic. If you’re poor in a particular subject, say science or arts, just use those coins to re-spin. Who knows, you might get an easy topic next time
- Use the Question Factory to Send Your Questions:
You can suggest your questions via the Question Factory. Select a category or topic. Tap on the “Write a Question box” and type your question. Tap on the Correct Answer box and enter the right answer. You will also have to enter three wrong questions so that the game can notify the user whether the answer he/she selected is correct or wrong. Then you will tap Send once after have entered the question and answers in all fields.
- Three in a Row
To start, tap to spin the wheel. The spinner will stop on a topic, such as science, history, geography or entertainment. A question related to the topic will be displayed on the screen. Choose the correct answer from multiple options. You win if your answers are accurate and your opponent’s wrong. Wait for your opponent’s turn to answer questions to complete a round.
You will need to answer three questions correctly to earn a character. You will find a segmented meter at the bottom of the screen. For example: If you respond to questions in any three subjects correctly, the segment meter will fill up. The catch is that you will need to give three correct answers in a row. The meter won’t fill up if your second answer is incorrect. Once the meter fills up, choose a character and answer a question. If the is correct, you win that character.
- Here is How You Can Win Characters Faster:
Many times, the spinner stops at the Crown icon. Don’t miss this opportunity to earn a character. You have two options – 1. Challenge: Choose a question/topic for him to steal his character and 2. Crown: Select a character and answer a question correctly to earn it.
Each player should have won at least one character to play the first option. The second option, i.e., Crown, is the best way to earn a character. Remember that each Trivia Crack character is a cartoon version of a topic or segment. Before selecting a character, know which character belongs to which segment:
- Popcorn character: Entertainment
- Globe character: Geography
- Football character: A sports-related question will be asked
- Test-tube character: Science
- Yellow character in armor: History
- Red brush: Arts
Choose an easy category/subject from the list. If you are a history-buff, then choose the yellow character. Make sure you choose a character which you have not earned yet. Answer the question and if it is correct, and that character will be yours.
