Trivia and Online Trivia Games For Your Mind

Aug 14, 2008
When television started becoming popular, the first shows were all trivia related shows. Shows like Beat the Clock and Twenty-One were the focus of audiences in America. Quiz shows attracted viewers with the large cash prizes and the reactions of the winners.

Around 1957, many quiz shows were exposed to be fake, as a result, they disappeared altogether for a while. Jeopardy was introduced in 1964, and restored peoples trust in game-shows. There were all kinds of new rules and new limitations on prize money. In short, it was ensured that the game was being played fairly. Think about this, when it comes to home games, and television game shows, the common thread is the trivia aspect.

Not to mention, trivia is the most popular type of game for both home games and game shows! It makes perfect sense, trivia not only entertains and challenges, it teaches, all simultaneously. Once the Internet came around, trivia really took off. You can find a limitless supply of trivia websites online for all different kinds of things. And get this, there is even software available to create custom trivia for special events!

Imagine the kind of fun you can have, and this classic form of fun has been proven to always work, whether on television or live in person! Trivia game sites that have point systems or badges tend to be the most popular. It's so users can compare their skill level to other users and be rewarded for them as well. Not always are you rewarded, because your level being shown is sometimes more than enough.

Points are typically given just for fun, and badges tend to take some effort, depending on the badge. Online you can find more than just trivia, there's board games, adventure games, action games, and much more. Games differ in many ways, some take a week to win, others can be a matter of minutes. These websites are scattered all across the Internet, and many have hundreds of thousands of questions, and tens of thousands of active members!

It's free to join most of these trivia sites, and as a member you can create and play games, post in forums, download software, etc. Not all of these sites are free, and some offer no advertising, or real cash prizes, as compensation for your membership fees. Some of these quizzes are fill in the blank, some are true or false, others are multiple choice.

The site will record how you are doing and compare you with the rest of the users online. With advancements in website technology, you can find it's easy to make your own trivia for your friends and fellow members. What's really amazing is that it'll appear online for the entire world to access when you're done, pretty neat if you ask me.

Once you login, you can play all kinds of games, from crosswords to brain teasers. Games for kids, and tournaments for adults. Action games, adventure games and number games are only a click away. There are even multiplayer interactive games you can find.

It's all easy to find too, just look in your favorite search engine, there should be a huge link list for any type of gaming you're into.
