A new game show on iPhone. Every day at 9pm EDT. Weekdays at 3pm EDT
Fun, fresh, simple, free, and who doesn't like trivia games (and winning money maybe but probably not)Cons:
* Not clear what it is until you reach a live show
* Some tech difficulties
* If you win, amount will probably be ~$3 unless really lucky
Only 1–2 shows per day, and times may be inconvenient depending on your location.
They should show some sort of preview or have a tutorial / computer mode where you can play previous games.
The app itself is pretty nice and when it works, the experience is seamless.
Unfortunately, the games are frequently delayed and experience technical difficulties. Plus often you put the right answer but it doesn't register.
Also, the trivia questions are not very satisfying. Who cares what company
owns Waypoint? That's not an interesting piece of knowledge.
Also apparently the founder doesn't know how journalism works.Simon Bromberg has used this product for one month.
The competition with community and live stream and of course the cash prizeCons:
Prize money is to small.
Would be great if there were more games each day and you could win different types of prizes. Like win an xbox, or Tesla, or $100,000.
Also, there are so many people commenting that it doesn't really make sense. Might be better to just show an explosion of multiple profile photos of the people that got a question right after the answer is given away.
When I played this game btw, I had about 4 other friends trying to help in order to win. Great word of mouth marketing established through that. Wonder if there is a way to gamify it with multiple friends within the app that way those "friends" wouldn't have to be in the same room as me, they could be helping me from their mobile app and incentivize them somehow.
The hosts are great so far! They are positive energy, say the right things, and engage the audience. I like when they mention twitter followers. I think you are on to something there from a marketing perspective but could def get more creative by shouting out influential players in the game and that have large followings or previously won games in the past. Lots you can do there.
Very impressed with the concept and execution. Well done.Billy Mauro has used this product for one week.
