Introducing…Big Dog games, Junior games, and more!

Everyone who is familiar with our very popular Pricebenders auctions knows about the following auction types:

  • 1WA auctions (auctions for those looking for their first win)
  • Junior auctions
  • Big Dog auctions

We’re excited today to announce that all of these attributes will now be appearing regularly in our Knockout Trivia games, too!

We will be testing different percentages, but currently you will see:

  • 1W (restricted to only those who’ve not yet won) on 4% of matches
  • Junior (restricted to only those with 5 wins or less) on 4% of matches
  • Big Dog auctions on 4% of matches

What makes Big Dog games…big dog?  Entry for Big Dog games will be 5 TCredits.  Lifelines, revivals, etc. will also cost more TCredits.  So why play when it costs more?  Here are three big reasons:

  1. Bigger Zackpots are likely
  2. Less competition is likely
  3. Winners earn a special Knockout Trivia Big Dog badge (note: expires after 15 days).

 

Your first opportunity  to earn Big Dog status will be in match #2109, which will be coming up in about 15-20 minutes (from this post time).

We are going to also continue to offer free entry for 48% of all matches.

To know which attribute each current or upcoming game is using (if any), simply check out the Knockout Trivia panel on the GAMES index at:

Enjoy!

FYI: So that you can be alerted to the types of games you want to participate in, we will soon be making available a special Eager Zebra Twitter feed that you’ll be able to subscribe to to receive notifications of games starts for each of the different types of games.

SPECIAL NOTES

1. Knockout Trivia has been tested extensively, but because it’s impossible to test every possible hardware/system/ISP combination, it is still considered a beta.  If you are using one of the latest browsers (we recommend Safari, Chrome, or Firefox), you should have a great experience when playing Knockout Trivia, but it is possible there may still be minor glitches in the short term. Your feedback in helping us identify any remaining hiccups is appreciated!

2. Knockout Trivia isn’t for everybody–especially if English is not your native language.  But don’t worry, because we have many, many more games coming that you are sure to like!

3. The buttons in the top right corner of Knockout Trivia (and all Eager Zebra games) are your friends!  Use them for quick, one-click access to TIPS for winning, WINNERS lists, LEADERBOARDS, and more Eager Zebra games you may be interested in playing.

You can enter Knockout Trivia NOW at:

Note! For a limited time, every other Knockout Trivia match is 100% free to enter and play (no TCredits required)!  So if you arrive and the game requires a TCredit to enter, just wait for the next game to start (about 20 minutes after the current game ends) if you’d like a free entry.

P.S. By playing today (during first 24 hours), you’ll also earn yourself an exclusive, one-time only “PREMIER PLAYER” badge–a special badge that tells the world you were part of Eager Zebra history–that you played Knockout Trivia during its very first day!

WHAT IS IT?

In Knockout Trivia, your objective is to outlast your fellow players answering trivia questions.  For each question, you’re provided with four answers to choose from.  Choose the right answer and you’ll move on to the next round…or get knocked out with a wrong answer. Be the last player standing to win the match and a free bonus entry (maximum 5) in the big Daily Crown drawing for the following day where you can win up to 1000 Rewardicals! You get 285 chances to win with each Daily Crown entry!  Play up to two FREE matches daily, more for as little as one TCredit per match.  No purchase necessary to enter or win.

THINK FAST

Because players could otherwise find the answer with a quick Internet search, you’ll have only about 12 seconds (on average) from the time the question is revealed until answers can no longer be accepted.  So be ready to play when the game starts…and keep distractions to a minimum.

50/50 “LIFELINES”

Every player is provided with three opportunities to use a 50/50 “lifeline” any time during a game.  What this means is if you’re not sure of the answer to a question, you can just click on one of the 50/50 buttons.  The system will instantly remove two of the wrong answers. But remember, there are only three of these buttons available…so use them only when you really need them.  But when you DO need them, use them quick!

EASY-MEDIUM-HARD

Knockout Trivia starts with easy questions for the first several rounds.  It then will shift to medium-difficulty questions, and later still, questions rated “hard.”  Therefore, it will behoove you to try to save your “lifelines” for the latter part of the game when the questions are the most difficult.

ENTRY COST AND PLAY LIMITS

Each day you may play three games free, plus up to 12 additional games for TCredits or EZ Express tokens, as follows:

  • Game 1 = free or 1 EZ Express
  • Game 2 = free or 1 EZ Express
  • Game 3 = free or 1 EZ Express
  • Game 4 = 1 TCredit or 1 EZ Express
  • Game 5 = 1 TCredit or 1 EZ Express
  • Game 6 = 1 TCredit or 1 EZ Express
  • Game 7 = 1 TCredit or 1 EZ Express
  • Game 8 = 3 TCredits
  • Game 9 = 3 TCredits
  • Game 10 = 3 TCredits
  • Game 11 = 3 TCredits
  • Game 12 = 3 TCredits
  • Game 13 = 1 EZ Express
  • Game 14 = 1 EZ Express
  • Game 15 = 1 EZ Express

REVIVAL

If you get knocked out in an early round of a game, you’ll automatically be presented with the opportunity to buy back in with TCredits.  The number of TCredits required depends on the round (the later the round, the more TCredits it will cost you to get back in the game).

TRIVIA POINTS LEADERBOARD

Even if you don’t win Knockout Trivia, you can be racking up trivia points and winning bragging rights and prime spots on the Trivia Points Leaderboard.  For every trivia question you answer correctly, you’ll earn 5 points.  For each medium question, you’ll earn 8 points.  And for each hard question, you’ll earn 12 points.  Note: So that all players have the opportunity to reach the top of the leaderboard, points won are halved every 30 days.

BADGES

Knockout Trivia offers players cool badges, too.  Earn the “In it to win it!” badge just for playing (Note: badge expires after 24 hours; play daily to keep this badge on your mantel).  Earn a RUNNER-UP badge with a runner-up finish or earn a WINNER badge for winning a match.  And if you win more than once, your badge will reflect this and include your number of wins, too!  Also, add a prestigious bronze strip to your badge with 3 wins, a silver strip with 10 wins, or an “I rule around here” gold strip with 20 or more wins.

COUNTRY COMPETITION

A fun little feature of Knockout Trivia is the display of the flags of the countries with the most players in the game.  Root your country on to victory from the sidelines or, better yet, enter the game and help your country win the match and dominate the Trivia Points Leaderboard and the Top Player Leaderboard–a leaderboard that tracks how every country in the world is doing in ALL Eager Zebra games!  Note: So that all countries have the opportunity to reach the top of the leaderboard, its players’ points won are halved every 30 days.

UNLIMITED REWARDICALS

Each time you spend a TCredit playing Knockout Trivia, you’ll earn 10 Rewardicals, redeemable for free Bitcoin, gift cards, silver bullion, and more! If you’re an SFI Affiliate, you can also exchange your Rewardicals for unlimited VersaPoints, PSAs, CSAs, and PRMs!

TECHNICAL AND LANGUAGE ISSUES

Knockout Trivia isn’t for everybody.  To work properly, Knockout Trivia requires that you have a good Internet connection on your end.  If you do not, latency may create timing issues.  Note that latency is a function of YOUR computer and the speed of YOUR Internet connection–which is out of our control.  There are some things you can do, however, to mitigate latency issues:
  1. Make sure you are running the latest version of your Web browser.  We recommend Safari, Chrome, or FireFox.
  2. Don’t have lots of windows open in your browser when playing  Knockout Trivia.
  3. Restarting your browser and/or computer can also help.
  4. Check with your ISP; they may offer a faster service you can upgrade to.
Knockout Trivia may also not be for you if English is not your native language.  But don’t worry, because we have many, many more games coming that you are sure to like!
