Let's play trivia

QuizUp is a trivia game that tests your knowledge of TV show quotes, world geography, cooking, and hundreds other topics. You can challenge random strangers, or go head to head with your Facebook or Google+ friends to earn more points and level up.

Multiple choice questions

You get six rounds of questions in each game, and all of them are multiple choice. Some even have photos.

You get 10 seconds to buzz in, and the faster you answer, the more points you earn.
