A Blighty-specific model of the sport quietly launched a few weeks in the past, however it was unclear whether or not this was merely an experiment with offering region-specific content material, or the corporate had plans to make a longer-term dedication.
Now, we all know it’s the latter. The primary host of the UK model is Sharon Carpenter, who commonly seems on the principle recreation as a alternative for Scott “Quiz Daddy” Rogowsky.
Carpenter is a veteran broadcast journalist, having labored with the likes of BBC World Information America and Black Leisure Tv. Her assured rapport with the gamers has meant she’s shortly turn out to be a fan favourite.
The UK model of HQ Trivia works a lot the identical because the one fronted by Rogowsky. Customers must accurately reply a set of questions so as to win a share of a money prize. The sport’s break-neck tempo stays the identical throughout the pond, and gamers have simply ten seconds to get the proper reply. This implies dishonest is extraordinarily arduous, though definitely not unimaginable.
Clearly although, there are some variations. The questions are likely to skew in direction of UK-specific subjects. Count on to be quizzed on Beckham and Corbyn, moderately than Brady and Schumer.
The money pot tends to be so much smaller, too. That’s as a result of the UK model of HQ Trivia tends to draw a a lot smaller variety of gamers in comparison with the principle recreation, the place tens of millions can (and do) play.
The primary official HQ Trivia UK recreation is tonight at 9PM GMT (4PM EST). In keeping with a HQ Consultant, future video games will probably be “timed for UK audiences,” though didn’t specify something concrete. That’s to be anticipated although, contemplating Carpenter relies within the US, and there’s a fairly main time distinction.
