The biggest thing since HQ Trivia

HQ Words — HQ Trivia's first expansion beyond trivia — emerged out of beta last night. 😲

HQ Words is sort of a mix between Words with Friends, traditional crossword puzzles and Wheel-of Fortune.

How it works: Similar to HQ Trivia, players will join the game live every night to compete. The object of the game is to solve word puzzles by correctly choose what letters are hidden. You spin a wheel before the game starts to get an automatic letter revealed. Then the Host will provide hints about the word as a 25-second timer for the puzzle counts down. You lose by choosing three letters wrong or failing to fill out the words.

HQ Words will go live every day at 6:30 p.m. PST, right after HQ Trivia's broadcast. 🔊

While HQ Trivia was a phenomenon this time last year, the amount of daily players has significantly declined over the past several months. This launch will also be the first under CEO and co-founder Rus Yusupov, after co-founder and former CEO Colin Kroll tragically died a few weeks ago.

The game is now available inside the existing HQ Trivia iOS and Android apps.

Since HQ Trivia became a hit in 2017, a bunch of apps have launched to become the next "HQ for X." Fall down the trivia rabbit hole here.
