Trivia Bar Games Come to Android in NTN Buzztime App

NTN Buzztime, Inc., the guys behind all those trivia games you see folks playing at the bar and restaurant, have announced an official Android application today.  Effective immediately, trivia buffs can download the free application from the Android Market. That means everyone at your table can get their game on without waiting for the clunky, outdated (Playmakers) boxes. 

I had a chance to play with this a little over a week ago and was seriously impressed with how easy it worked.  As soon as you open the app, it lets you sign in or create an account and then finds local establishments with games.  Tapping the appropriate bar, you’re thrown right into the mix against everyone else using those goofy looking blue boxes.  The app is clutter free, essentially only showing answer buttons.  Why not questions?  Well, that’s so you actually go into the bar and buy drinks and food, silly.

Fun Fact: Buzztime engages more than 1,500,000 players every year across  3,900 bars and restaurants.  There are roughly 50,000,000 bar trivia, cards and sports games each year on their network.
