The two billion game play mark is almost here, and you could win a $1,000 American Express gift card!

Sporcle was founded on January 30th, 2007. On April 12th, 2013 we passed the one billion game play mark, and here we are just a few years later with two billion quickly approaching.

Milestones this big don’t happen often, and we want you to join us as we count down the days, hours, minutes and seconds to the big moment.

On the Sporcle homepage you can see the play count rise in real time. You can also visit the Sporcle Stats page to get more insights into how we got here.

You can join in the variety of events we have rolled out to commemorate the occasion, including the The Two Billionth Game Play Sweepstakes (see below).

Also, hopefully by now you know about the the Billionaire Club Badge. The action started September 19, and as you can see from this post in groups, a few intrepid folks have already begun to prepare.

We expect to pass this milestone in early to mid-October. The big day is almost here.
