Great and Original-The Current Generation Family Fued
I can say that I’ve been playing this game since November of this year and man is it “first of all” addictive and the schedule for this game helps as well, for weekdays the games are held 6 hours apart from each other (3PM EST and 9PM EST) and on the weekends, they have the 9PM EST game which honestly for me, makes it very convenient to tune in and play. I’ve also never seen any other app like it. There are some problems once and a while, but for the most part, they’ve ironed them out really well and continue to iron them. They try their best to give everyone a fair chance at winning or splitting the cash prize. They do a great job on adding features and mostly bug fixes to make the experience even better than previously. I also like how it’s evolved so much over just the past month. The HQ developers do in fact work on the game and they push updates regularly so now the game CAN handle the ever-growing 700k+ people that are tuning in to play so don’t worry about problems with lag much and if so, the question tab will appear either way. In my opinion, the host is extremely funny and makes light of any situation. I WOULDN’T consider him to be annoying or cringing. So YES, this is a definite recommendation from me to download this game and at least try it out once.
Great idea but terrible execution
First off, I’ll say that this app is a great idea and should be a ton of fun. I love trivia and am good at it, and I don’t really have complaints about the difficulty of later questions because it makes sense that the game needs to narrow down the active players significantly, so that people can win more than a few cents each. However, the game has two big problems that I think need to be addressed if this game is to stay relevant.
My first big issue with this game is that the app absolutely cannot keep up with the number of players. I have been kicked from games randomly, lagged out, and several times I have selected the correct answer, it’s shown that I selected the correct answer, and then it’s told me I’ve been eliminated.
My second big problem with the game bothers me even more than the first. I regularly skip games because I do not want to deal with watching the host. The host is the absolute worst. He is so unbelievably annoying and he just rambles forever about nonsense, completely ruining games regularly and making it not fun to play. I don’t understand how this isn’t more of an issue for more people. The host single-handedly makes me not want to play the game, even though the chance of winning money keeps bringing me back. Please fire Scott! He is so, so terrible and I hate him more with every game I play; he’s making me become less and less interested in continuing to use the app.
It’s fun but doesn’t always work
Ok so I try to play this everyday because it’s pretty cool and a lot of fun but it glitches really hard a lot and to make it glitch less you have to be connected to a super strong WiFi many many times I have been far along the game and it glitches and when it goes back to normal it says I clicked an answer when I never did and it’s always the wrong one so I get kicked out and lose because the game malfunctioned. I understand they are live-streaming a game show but if this could get fixed the game would be 100x better. If you have super strong WiFi and you Like trivia game ands winning money I would recommend it but if your WiFi is bad to moderate Maybe steer away or just watch because chances are it will glitch and you will lose. I have found the creators created Vine for some people who created such a huge app they should work harder on this one many people have it lag a lot and as stated in many other reviews the hosts talk way to much and drag it on and make aborting jokes plus they try to hype up $2,000 when the reality of it is on average 150 people win and the most I have seen some one win is $32 and on the $10,000 people won $5 because so many played and won they should start the games when it hits a certain number of people so the prize is better and it doesn’t lag (400,000 people)
