Tackle geeky trivia questions on Twitter.

How do you play? First you follow the NerdTrivia twitter account (which should follow you back so you can send them direct messages) and wait for them to tweet a trivia question. They do so at the top of the hour between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. pacific time and you only have one hour to submit your answer (You get bonus points for replying in the first 3 minutes.). Topics range from science and tech to gaming, literature, movies and television and more. A recent sample question: For 5 points: Collectively, helium, neon, argon, kyrpton, xenon, and radon are known as what kind of gases? And another: For 10 points: In Star Trek: DS9 the USS Defiant was originally designed to defend against who?

If you've submitted a correct guess, a secondary NerdTrivia account will @ reply you with how many points you've earned.

There's also an official website where players can keep track of leaderboards, unlock special achievements and even submit your own questions for potential use in the game.
