HQ is the live trivia game show with cash prizes. Every day at 9pm EDT. Weekdays at 3pm EDT.
I love everything about this app
Video could use an update bite really fun
Service it’s horrible
Tried playing the last two days and the service keeps lagging to the point I have not been able to play at all.
Doesn’t Even Work
The game is supposed to start at 2pm CST and 8pm CST according to the app. So I turn on notifications for it.
I was in the app at 1:55 and it said “Next Game at 2pm CST.” Suddenly it changed to 8pm. There was no join game button presented to me.
A “watch” button appeared at 2:05. So I click it and get tossed into a chat room of literally 500K people spamming the app with useless garbage. The app lags horrendously and crashes.
I’m on high speed Internet so it’s definitely the developer at fault. But I wait until 8 to try again.
I’m not in the app and it notifies me the game is about to begin at 7:50. So I click to open the app. I get sent to the waiting screen again. No join game button, but a watch game button comes up at 7:55.
Clearly the game does not work.

This Ap was not built for the traffic it receives. The Ap lags and often you will get kicked out of the game while you are trying to play.
Crashes DURING games!
I’ve only been able to play one time all the way through, every other time I try to play, it crashes and kicks me out.
I’ve used my cell 4g, my Home WiFi, and work WiFi but the problem seems to exist with the million or so players clogging the HQ servers.
Host Scott is annoying
Aside from Scott being extremely annoying to listen to, the reason for the 3 stars is because the stream does freeze up sometimes during the questions. They rarely start on time, and when they do it’s 5 minutes after the 3pm and 9pm game times.
Lag and glitches
By Yep per doodle
HQ is certainly a fun game when you actually play a full game without going threw any glitches or lag. Every time I play it there’s always lag. On New Years Eve they played a game for $20,000 I think and everyone on the chat said that none of the questions appeared on their screens either. I have also been eliminated for no apparent reason. If all of this was fixed I would think it would be a great game! Maybe even worthy of 5/5 stars.
HQ TRIVIA: SHIP OF PHOOLS
A doomed (monetize THIS) app.
1. Despite the apparently toasted main host blabbing about, “Cash, cash, cash...”, jackpots are ridiculously low in relation to the number of “H-Qties”online, and the relative smattering of anointed “winners” who have short-circuited their king-sized synaptic networks in order to win chump change.
2. The useless, unproductive format. A couple of unfunny, ultra-stupid questions a brain-damaged barnacle could answer, immediately followed by impossibly obscure or difficult questions designed to stump all but a few of the original entrants for what? You guessed it, dear Einsteins, EGNAHC PMUHC. Get it?
3. I forget. Brain too fricasseed by my very last “game” of HQT.
Final comment: “monetize” HQT in the future? As we say in Noo Yawk,
So Much Potential
...This is a great game and I love the concept of it. There’s nothing out there like it. I’m always excited to get the notification to login to play. Unfortunately I can’t rate it 4-5 stars because the app glitches and has so much lag, even when I’m connected to WiFi. This causes me to miss the questions and become eliminated which is frustrating. I think removing the chat would be helpful. It’s pointless and serves no purpose to me. The hosts are funny and I enjoy the dry humor. All in all, it’s a good game. I just wish it worked better.
