HQ Trivia's live event took place at SXSW in Austin Texas, serving as the first in-person effort the popular mobile trivia app has undergone. Nearly 3,000 people took part in the event, as contestants were slowly eliminated for answering incorrectly. Eventually, just a few players remained, taking home cash prizes of just over $100.

HQ Trivia quickly grew in popularity last year, as it offered real cash prizes to those who could answer a series of live questions correctly, and in a timely manner. The live version of the event offered a seamless sense of connection, as contestants could play beside each other for the first time since the game was introduced, creating a deeper sense of competition and camaraderie.
