If you’re looking for a way to get your mind off of your hectic day, Original Trivia is the perfect game for you. The game only takes 30 seconds of your day and players have the chance to win cool prizes.
Original Trivia is giving players the chance to test their trivia knowledge with a few easy clicks. The D.C.-based online trivia game launches every day at 2 p.m. EST. Players answer up to five questions related to current events.
“We wanted to do a really fun, positive spin on the news for our questions,” said Original Trivia co-founder Kate Myers. “We wanted something that has current events, but that is something players would want to engage with.”
Myers and her co-founder, Michael Sabat, met at 1776, where they are both members. Their love for HQ Trivia inspired them to start their own trivia game. Myers and Sabat were both working on their own respective startups when they met. Myers founded Shop Or Not, a text-based commerce platform that lets users buy local goods once a week with a simple “yes.” Sabat’s startup @Mssg helps organizations market to customers through automated messages on Messenger.
Original Trivia attracts more than 1,000 players a day and counting. As the trivia game’s numbers continue to improve, so will the prizes, Sabat said.
