Are You the King of Trivia?
Everybody loves a quick game of trivia. Growing up, I remember spending countless nights engrossed in my family’s tradition of watching Jeopardy on TV. While there are two official Jeopardy apps available on the Android Market, they miss one critical element—they’re not free. Luckily, there is generally always an alternative available for download on our lovely forums.
Thanks to work by XDA forum member SilmarilApps, we now have King of Trivia—a well-designed and free alternative to the timeless game show classic. The game asks questions in 11 categories, ranging from Sports to Mythology. Just like in the real game, the more difficult questions yield more points. And also similarly to the original, you are given only a limited amount of time to answer the question.
Looking to give the game a shot yourself? If so, head over to the application thread to get started!
