    Pros: 

    Clean UX, questions are interesting, addictive for sure.

    Cons: 

    Haven't won any games yet. :(

    Addition of video will definitely up the entertainment factor. It will also open up the possibility of digging further into the question and provide the larger context. Good luck to the team.

    Pros: 

    Amazing questions and interface

    Cons: 

    Addictive

    I've been playing the game from day 1 and have missed quizzes only when I was on a flight or delivering a speech. My entire team at Eventosaur plays every day and then discusses this stuff. It's become a bonding ritual of sorts. We've all won decent amounts of money as well.

    If you sign up, use my referral code to help me do justice to my addiction and yours. The code is 'jois' - we'll get extra lives.

Hey Product Hunters 😸 Me and some friends started playing HQ Trivia back here in India roughly a month ago and immediately fell in love with it. A live host, a bit of comedy, the rush of adrenaline, and a chance to win real cash - what’s not to love? We felt that this could potentially be the future of gameshows or who knows, even live TV? With video and data consumption booming in India, India’s love for Kaun Banega Crorepati (Who wants to be a millionaire) which still has the highest TRPs on Indian television more than a decade on, and the allure of real money, we knew a localised version in Indian languages could be a huge hit as well. Having worked at some of India’s bigger startups, and built more than a handful of products on the side, we immediately went to work on Showtime! We initially launched with a text-only MVP couple weeks back and are starting to roll out live video to all users in small batches starting today. The questions on Showtime are about stuff Indians love - Bollywood, cricket, religion, food and politics 😂 We’ve a couple of Youtubers onboard as hosts. We have done zero marketing so far - yet we are closing in on a thousand people playing live each night and our engagement, retention and referral numbers are pretty high! We’re working on adding music, some cool animations, supporting more Indian languages and our iOS app at the moment - you can expect some great updates in the next couple of weeks! The last few weeks have thrown up some super interesting insights about our Indian users - will do a Medium post on that soon. Meanwhile, happy to take any questions anyone might have :)

@amitava82 Copycats harm the overall tech industry. Especially copycats that are too lazy to add their own dreamed up twist to an original idea, but would rather just lift as a whole.

Highly addictive and has great potential to become a daily entertainment portal on the mobile phone. Have been using the beta and saw users 2X in a matter of days thanks to strong word of mouth. Wish you all the best @abhishekmadhavn
