Unless you really, really like trivia contests -- and earning tiny prizes -- you'll probably get bored of this online trivia game before you win anything good. In Swag IQ, you and other people compete in a live online trivia contest. And if you get all ten of these multiple choice questions right, you split the prize with all of the other winners. Which isn't easy, since you only have ten seconds to choose, can't change your mind, and if you get any questions wrong, you're out. (Well, you can keep playing, you just can't win the grand prize.)

But then again, it's not a big prize to begin with -- it's just a couple of in-game points you can redeem for cash or gift cards. It also doesn't help that the announcer is irritating, or that the messages players post invariably end up being people sniping back and forth about how the announcer is annoying or Donald Trump is annoying or hey, you should follow me on Twitter. Also, you can only play the game live once a day, except Saturdays, for some unknown reason. Which is why, despite challenging our trivia skills, Swag IQ didn't entertain us for more than a few A) rounds, B) days, or C) sandwiches.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
