Quetrix

Quetrix features a quiz competition in which players are presented with general knowledge clues in the form of answers, and must phrase their responses in the form of questions.

Contestants answer quiz questions in a variety of categories, spanning multiple rounds. The contestant picks a category, and is given a clue to the answer. For example, if the answer is tomato, they have to answer “what is tomato?”.

You can use Quetrix for events, marketing, employee activities and incentives. Quetrix launches anywhere, making it easy to encourage participation and competition at virtual or live events of all types.
