HQ is an app developed for IOS users that is a live game show. Every weekday at 3:00 pm and 9:00 pm and on weekends at 9:00 pm the app goes live and is a series of 12 questions. There is a sum of money that contestants who log onto the app are trying to win and that amount is typically $2,000 but sometimes it can reach up to a prize of $15,000 or even $20,000 on some Sunday nights. Sunday night is the most common time that people open the app to play. A typical weekday around 1 million people play and on Sunday nights around 1.7-2 million people play. The way the game works is the questions start off very easy and get increasingly harder as the game progresses. Once you get one question wrong you are eliminated. Each question a user is allotted 10 seconds to select one of the three answer choices. If you get all of the questions right, the winners for that game split the bank of money and it is transferred with the use of PayPal. There must be a minimum of $20 won for the transfer to be completed. If no one wins, the money carries over to the next game. A user can get extra “lives” by inviting people to join the app. Comedian Scott Rogowsky regularly hosts the game but sometimes Sharon Carpenter steps in. The game also features a live chat in the bottom in which anyone playing can write anything and everyone who has the app open can view it. The app debuted in October of 2017 and has since been growing in popularity. Even if you don’t win the money it’s still a fun game to play to keep your memory sharp and test your random knowledge.
