Meet Blufr, Answers.com's Multi-Platform Social Trivia Game
The app is currently available for free and is downloadable from the Apple iTunes Store.
blufr has been designed to include social and location-based features. By offering registration through a Facebook or Twitter ID, blufr adds a competitive social dimension to the experience: players are ranked among their friends from those services, with the ability to earn awards or badges in their own social circles.
The game offers thousands of edgy, bizarre facts in categories including pop culture, sports, history and more, and challenges players to guess whether the trivia is true or false.
Trivia, or ‘blufs’, include:
- Lady GaGa's real name is Sarafina Angelica Giamonti.
- Actor Jake Gyllenhaal's bar-mitzvah was held in a homeless shelter.
- Boxing champion Mike Tyson has a tattoo of tennis star Arthur Ashe.
Players can rank on the leader board by location, among friends, or within categories. A real-time challenge component is planned for future iterations. blufr is currently available on the web and iPhone, with a Facebook app in development.
