In each round, players are given a set amount of time to answer as many multiple-choice trivia questions as possible, earning money up a chain as they continue to answer questions correctly. At any time, players can "bank" their accumulated earnings, which is important, because if a question is answered incorrectly, the money is lost, starting the chain over at zero.
Round after round, the "weakest link" player is determined based on accumulated earnings, and that weakest player is eliminated from the game. Starting with five players, the game continues until there are only two players left, and those players then go head-to-head in a series of five questions. Unfortunately, some of the questions are incredibly difficult, while others are general knowledge questions ("what color is snow?" and so on). After each game, you'll earn experience points and level up with ads and tokens (an energy system) supporting the free to play version of the game.
Ludia has also released a paid version of the app costing $0.99 that comes without ads and allows you to earn coins twice as fast as in the free version of the game. If you'd like to try either version of the game, you can download it now on iTunes.
