Welcome to ‘Back to Sporcle’ Week 2014

sweater_weather_-9526It’s the first day of our 4th annual Back to Sporcle week. It’s a special time where we discuss our love of sweaters, look forward to fall, and talk about what Sporcle’s been up to over the last few months

Today we’re going to focus on some of the sweet new features we’ve released into the wild recently. Everything from new quiz types, to live theme nights, we’ve pretty much done it all.

Here’s some of the good stuff we’ve been working on:

Trivia Bingo

bingo-2

The first real-time trivia game on Sporcle itself. Trivia Bingo uses our vast repository of Sporcle Live questions and lets you play them against your friends (and enemies online). It just takes a lot of trivia knowledge (and a little) luck to crown yourself a Trivia Bingo champion.

 


Live Theme Nights

theme2

We’ve taken our usual Sporcle Live theme nights and expanded them as far as they can go. Every month we have new rounds on topics like Star Trek, The Simpsons and Arrested Development, so check back often.

 
 


Quiz Lab

quiz-lab

We’ve embiggened the noble soul of our Discover section and turned into Quiz Lab. Quiz Lab is the place to release new quizzes and get them played by other users. It’s the perfect place to test out your new ideas, and show other Sporclers your quizmaking chops. Unfortunately, we ran out of free labcoats, so you might have to make your own.

Tomorrow we’ll be back talking about our favorite quizzes of the summer, so stay tuned.

3. From: Homonym Slideshow

mselbyDid I hear something about that picture being of an excavator and not a crane!?

Anyway, I fixed it, but if we’ve learned one thing today, it’s that there isn’t a bird called an excavator and there sure as hell should be.
