Of course we have games! In this mode you don't get to pick the category; you just have to roll with the punches!

GAME TYPE ONE: STREAK

Go for a world record! The game will keep track of players so that multiple people can use the app without losing track of anyone else's top streak!

To get started, just open the app and say: 'Start a new Streak Game'.

******* NEW PREMIUM OFFERING - Doing great but missed a crazy hard question? Now you can purchase extra lives! An extra life lets you continue your streak even after missing a question! Comes individually or in packs of five!  *******

This game type allows unlimited players, so bring as many friends as you want and get to answering those questions!

To get started, just open the app and say: 'Start a new Instant Game'.


ANSWERING QUESTIONS 

When you deliver your answer, either use the letter associated to the answer you choose or by clearly stating the actual answer. The app uses algorithms to create a 'best guess' answer from what you say and then see if you were correct. The algorithm isn't 100% accurate, but it does a fairly good job and is constantly being improved.


GUIDED APP USE

At any point you can say help for more options or stop to exit.

OPTION ONE:

  1. Alexa, open Trivia Monster - You will hear a welcome message, followed by a request for what to do next.

  2. Start a new Streak Game - You will be asked for your name.

  3. Begin my Game - The game will start asking you questions. Once you miss a question, the streak is over.

OPTION TWO:

  1. Alexa, open Trivia Monster - You will hear a welcome message, followed by a request for what to do next.

  2. Ask me a books question - You will be asked a question. Give your best guess. Alexa will follow up by asking if you want another question in the same category.
