Well that was fun.

This last Saturday we crossed the TWO BILLION game play mark. A huge and hearty thank you goes out to all our users who have been a part of Sporcle over the years.

We reached the two billion play mark a lot faster than the one billion play mark and with luck three billion will be here before we know it.

Now on to the nitty gritty of the day!

THE TWO BILLIONTH PLAY

Congrats to gazzso for playing the two billionth quiz!

In an incredible show of generosity, gazzso asked that we donate the prize money to a charity that focuses on education. We will be donating $1,000 to various projects via Donors Choose. Gazzso has been a member of Sporcle since December 29th, 2015, lives in Serbia and is the curator for the subcategories Africa and Puzzle.
