Okay, so I’ll admit to it. I’m addicted to Trivia Crack. I know. I know. It’s a passing fad, one that many of my acquaintances have blown through like so much sand, and now they’re done. But, as usual, I have latched on like a dog with a bone and I’m not letting it go, at least not anytime soon. For me it’s the new Trivial Pursuit, a game I love because it relies on knowledge across many genres.
Except every single question on Trivia Crack has four possible answers, which at first seems like a blessing, but is instead a curse, because often I get something wrong thinking I know the answer, but it turns out to be a logical detractor. So I second-guess myself when I really do know the answer. I can’t tell you how many times that’s happened to me, and I kick myself every single time, but it’s timed which amps up the pressure.
Then there’s the competition. I hate losing, but I’ve lost 207 games in my two months of playing Trivia Crack and most times it doesn’t phase me. And yeah, I know people are cheating out there, but I like to think the ones I play against are being honest. Maybe I just still believe in a kinder, gentler world. Regardless, I’ve won over 420 games, so I feel like I’m still ahead.
Eventually I’m sure the obsession will stop, like with pretty much every other game I’ve played after time, but right now I’m good, motoring toward 500 victories and my own illusions of glory, pleased with my own mastery of irrelevant facts.
