Recently, my favorite children (and millennials), Will and Kirby, told me about the new game they're loving called HQ. Available on the App Store, the daily live trivia show is played by millions of folks around the country and hosted by quick-thinking comedian Scott Rogowsky. Contestants have ten seconds to answer a multiple-choice question. Guess right and you move on to the next one (there are 12 total). Guess wrong and you're booted from that day's game. Technically, you play for cash—the shared pot has ranged from $250 to $50,000—but given how tricky some questions are, the true prize is bragging rights. So far I've made it to the fifth question. Lucky number six, here I come!
