What the heck is this you say?
OctoQuiz is a new quiz platform from Sporcle Labs that is intended to be a bit more personal. Where Sporcle is all about mentally stimulating diversions, OctoQuiz is about the lighter side of trivia. OctoQuiz offers multiple choice question formats as well as personality quizzes (with more quiz types to come).
OctoQuizzes are fun, bite sized, very shareable quizzes that now anyone with a Sporcle account can create. Just login using your Sporcle credentials (or create a new account on Sporcle) and you’re off and running.
The quizzes are easy to play (on your desktop or mobile device) and only take a minute of your time, so give em a whirl.
And now for your questions:
Why would you do this?
We thought this was fun and figured you would too. Add pictures, create silliness, search your soul. Trivia is educational but fun, go with it.
Why not just add all this to Sporcle?
If you recall, a little over a year ago, we tried to put a similar type format on Sporcle itself, and it just didn’t quite take. We learned that these quizzes needed a home of their own.
Does this mean that multiple choice questions will never come to Sporcle?
Well, never say never. This is certainly something we may do in time, but it would have to have its own Sporcle slant to it.
