A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

While the questions can be tough, the game itself uses simple touch controls.

Violence
Sex

Some questions -- such as one about President Bill Clinton's affair while in office -- may be inappropriate for younger players.

Language
Consumerism

Banner ads in some menus, video ads after you lose a game or round. Players can also spend real money to keep playing, or buy VIP membership that makes game ad-free, gives you discounts on items, and allows for endless play time.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Trivia Crack 2 is a trivia game for iOS and Android where you compete against strangers and your Facebook friends. While it does access your Facebook account, or ask you to sign in with your email, there's no communication between competitors, and you can opt to have it not show your name or photo. As for inappropriate content, while there's no cursing, nudity, or substances raised during games, some questions may be inappropriate for younger players, such as one about former President Bill Clinton having an affair. The game runs banner ads in some of the menus and video ads after you lose a round. Players can also spend real-world money to buy resources so they can keep playing, though there's also a VIP membership that gives you an add-free experience, unlimited playtime, and discounts. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared, and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

What's it about?

Like most trivia games, TRIVIA CRACK 2 doesn't have a story. Sure, you're supposed to collect characters -- that's how you win -- but there's no story about how you're saving these characters from the evil Lord Trivian and his Inquisition Army. Instead, you engage in a series of online one-on-one trivia contests against strangers and your Facebook friends. But this isn't done in real-time; it's more of a "wait your turn" kind of thing, as players have days before they have to come back and play their round to avoid forfeiting the game. 

Is it any good?

While this one-on-one online trivia contest may be convenient and fun to play, it loses some tension by giving you days to take a turn instead of going head-to-head. In Trivia Crack 2, you engage in a trivia contest against a friend or stranger, answering multiple-choice questions in a variety of subjects that include art, geography, sports, and entertainment. These questions also range in difficulty and seriousness; for example, one of the "history" questions asked which company first made a toaster cake. Answer one correctly, and you win the corresponding character for that subject; get all six characters, and you win the game. The kicker with the gameplay is that you don't need to stare at your phone or tablet while waiting for your opponent to go next. You answer a handful of questions in a row when it's your turn, but then you wait for your opponent to go, knowing full well that they have days to respond before they automatically forfeit, so you might as well go do something else. Which makes this really convenient, but also really lacking in tension or immediacy, something that will be a deal-breaker if you're competitive ... or impatient. If you're not, though, Trivia Crack 2 could be the answer you're looking for.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about marketing to kids. While Trivia Crack 2 does push ads, does it make sense to pay for the VIP membership to get rid of them? Does the option of playing all you want for the VIP membership make it more of a bargain?

  • Why is it important to be well-rounded for a trivia game? How can this help you in your day-to-day life?

  • Are you concerned that Trivia Crack 2 requires you to connect via Facebook or your email? Does the game allowing you to not show your name and/or face help at all with privacy?
