Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush. Which of these U.S. presidents said that women’s beach volleyball was his favorite event at the Olympic games? If you guessed Reagan, you’re wrong! The answer is George W. Bush, and the question is one of five recently asked daily on Original Trivia, a newly launched game that asks five rapid fire questions every day at 2 p.m. on Facebook Messenger The fastest person to answer the questions correctly also wins off-the-wall prizes.
The company was founded by Kate Myers, creator of ecommerce Facebook Messenger-based platform Shop Or Not, and Michael Sabat, the founder of @Mssg, which raises funds for various causes and businesses through Messenger. The pair actually sat next to each other last year at 1776, and their obsession with both Facebook Messenger and HQ Trivia led to a unique collaboration.
“We’ll be bringing in a lot more interactive things like videos and bigger prizes and sponsorships,” Sabat said. “Given what we’ve been doing, this company is a perfect mix of our passions.”
The founders say Original Trivia has more than 1,000 users since soft launching two weeks ago.
“It is work, but we really love this. All day Saturday I spent the day writing quizzes,” said Myers.-30-
