How to Win $20,000 — or Have a Lot of Fun Trying

How it works

The game couldn’t be simpler. It asks 12 multiple-choice questions (15 on nights with bigger prizes) about everything from movies to geography to science. You only have 10 seconds per question to touch the correct answer, and if you get any answer wrong, you’re out of the game.

So far, my husband has won twice, splitting the pot with hundreds of others each time. Once he won $1.98, once he won $7.01. I’ve gotten as far as the second-to-the-last question before blowing it. (I’ve also had my smartphone connection go on the fritz on me just as I was feeling good about my chances.) But as much as we’d love to claim the big money, we don’t expect to retire on our HQ winnings. We’re just having fun.
