There you are, in one of your classrooms just going about your day when out of nowhere someone blurts out something like “What is Phalacrophobia?” The classroom then erupts with students screaming guesses left and right. You might be wondering why they are doing this and what is going one, and there is only one answer: crack.
Our entire school has become addicted to crack-Trivia Crack, that is. Trivia Crack is the latest fad among the app players in our school. Trivia Crack’s popularity is as high as games in the recent years such as Flappy Bird, Motocross, Quizup and Temple Run.
Only the future can tell whether Trivia Crack will last long or fizzle out quickly like the rest of the games above. So what has gotten so much of Rose addicted to this game? I mean,since when are trivia games fun to teenagers? One key reason is its simplicity. Simplicity is a key to a successful and popular apps. Anything too complicated would take too much effort and would turn away users.
In Trivia Crack you get the choice to play against someone you know or someone random. The game starts off with a spinning wheel that randomly selects a category. There are six different categories: history, sports, entertainment, geography, art and science. Depending on what category the wheel lands, you are then asked a question that has anything to do with that category. It continues to be your turn until you get a question wrong.
Trivia Crack is a great game that is worth the hype. It appeals to people of all ages and interests. It finally lets people feel good about their obsessions because it allows them to use their arsenal of random facts. With the range of questions and categories, everyone from movie buffs to sports fanatics are able to enjoy the same game. If you couldn’t tell from the section I write for, entertainment is my favorite subject. While I must consult our Sports Co-Editor, Will Young for many of the the sports questions.
If you don't have this game, you need to get it now before the fad ends. I would encourage everybody to get this free addicting app now. Word of advice: you might want to get near your friends that are either history buffs, entertainment junkies, science geeks, artists or geography lords. If you want to play me, just email Rampant Lines to find out my username. I challenge Mrs. Monica Jacobson to a game of Trivia Crack, loser buys the winner candy canes.
