"The next big thing will start out looking like a toy." – Chris Dixon, a16z
We have our new toy: mobile-first game shows, led by summer blockbuster HQ Trivia
which let millions compete in real-time trivia contests for actual cash. They've since raised $15M and partnered with Nike and Warner Brothers for sponsored games.
have already popped up to compete with sports trivia
, online charades
, and payouts in crypto
. Facebook even spun up a competitor: fb.gg
But... cash is boring. Burritos are more fun.
Just launched Wednesday, Burrito Time
gives away 10 burritos to the first 10 people that open a push notification sent randomly every day. Simple, fun, filling, and guac is included at no extra charge. 🥑
If you don't win, you can still grab a digital burrito pouch
for all of your belongings. Don't let your friends take a bite. 😂
