Best trivia team names
On Sunday, the developers behind HQ Trivia — the game show where hundreds of thousands of users compete for cash on their smartphones — launches a new game: HQ Words, a “Wheel of Fortune”-inspired app. It should be a time of celebration and optimism for the young start-up. Instead, HQ is facing a crisis.

David Ellis is credited right up front as the person who “stuck with us through the research, our first and second outlines, and the many, many drafts,” so we know what he did: a lot. Otherwise, the former president appears to have provided inside information about how the job works when a president is paying attention (this novel’s POTUS reads his presidential daily briefing), done some speechifying and drawn upon his … [Read more...] about Bill Clinton and James Patterson Team Up to Imagine a True Fantasy: Sane Politics
