I love trivia. I own numerous themed editions of the board game Trivial Pursuit, used to play “Jeopardy!” with my Amazon Echo and once won trivia night at a bar by knowing all the names of the Bradford kids in TV’s “Eight Is Enough.” (My husband still laughs when he imitates the losing team muttering, “They got ALL EIGHT?” Tip: Everyone forgets Joanie.)

Earlier this year, my husband and I discovered HQ Trivia, a free app and live trivia game available for download for iOS and Android devices. You simply download the app and then log in when a game is scheduled to play — at no charge to you. There’s a cash prize that’s usually $5,000 (split among all winners), but has been as high as $300,000. So you might win 50 cents, or you might win $20,000. Read on to find out more.
