Question What You Know

What I’m about to disclose may seem weird, or familiar, depending on the kind of person you are.  Last week our Corona Book Club met to discuss our recent pick, and as I sat down to put together my thoughts on it, I was reminded of an ad campaign from my youth.  I googled the […]

The more things change…

Total Trivia Crack Scores by Game and Duration – The final post is a series of blogs analyzing Trivia Crack

We looked at total Trivia Crack scores in our previous blog of this series, and now we’ll close up by delving a little bit deeper.  Because, you see, not all Trivia Crack games are the same.
