Show Off Your Knowledge Against Others With Quizzer for Android
I am certain that you are familiar with Q&A games and Quizzes in general. These are usually rather popular games at house parties and more. Well, based on a request that XDA member Goddchen saw on another site, the dev decided to go on and take the Quiz concept to a whole new level, a community level! Quizzer basically will allow community members to ask questions and get answers from community members as well. Once the question’s available time closes, the right answer will get posted and points are awarded for providing the correct one. If you were looking for a time to shine with all the vast knowledge that you may have about mobile gadgets and electronics, now is your chance to do it.
Keep in mind that this is nowhere near complete yet. In fact, this is just a first beta and the dev is looking for feedback, ideas, and suggestions on how to make things better for this game.
It is a community quiz. You can post quiz questions, other users answer them and place their bid on their answer. At the end you close the question with the correct answer and everyone is rewarded according to their bids.
You can find more information in the game thread.
