Jeopardy! plows through two new contestants every weeknight, as implacably as a shark. But that means your odds, as a random American, of getting on the show this year are still no better than 1 in 800,000. Sad!
Enter FleetWit! It’s a mobile “brain race” site where players compete in live quizzes testing a mix of trivia know-how and general mental agility. I’ve tried a few of FleetWit’s race over the past month and always enjoy them…they’re fast-paced, accessible, well-designed. Real-time gaming seems to be the Next Big Trivia Thing, and FleetWit is the digital platform that comes closest so far to capturing the real-time thrills of playing on a game show…partly because they actually award cash prizes to top finishers! (No Rice-a-Roni or copies of the home game for runners-up, however.)
I’ve been consulting with FleetWit on trivia content and designing special “Genius Questions” for their site on occasion. But this weekend we’re going to try something a little different: I’m going to compete in a live race on Sunday at 8:30pm EST against anyone who’s up to the challenge. It’s free to enter and more than bragging rights are on the line: there’s $1500 in prizes up for grabs, plus a $25 bonus for anyone that can beat me! You can sign up here.
If you haven’t checked out FleetWit yet, you might want to get a few practice races under your belt before Sunday night’s big event. I’ll see you at the races!
