Exciting new twist on traditional trivia games includes 500 wild and amazing questions and multi-player capability

Discovery Bay Games, maker of award-winning, family-oriented games, puzzles and activities, announced today its first foray into the mobile market with the introduction of Guesstimation, its most popular trivia game. The app provides an exciting way to play Guesstimation with up to six players. Guesstimation for iPad is available for $2.99 (for a limited time) from the App Store on iPad or at http://www.itunes.com/appstore/.

Guesstimation is an exciting new twist on traditional trivia games. The answer to every question is a number, so players don’t need to know the exact answer—they just have to have the closest guess. The game includes more than 500 all new questions.

"Guesstimation has been our most popular trivia game, so it was natural to adopt that game to an app,” said Craig Olson, CEO of Discovery Bay Games. “The larger iPad screen is ideal for multi-player games and will solidify Guesstimation’s reputation as a favorite for family game nights.”

Cool features about Guesstimation for iPad include:

  • Allows for multi-player game play on the iPad – up to 6 players
  • More than 500 all new questions, covering everything from “How many stars are on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame?” to “How many degrees can an owl turn its head?” to “How many fireplaces are there in the White House?”
  • Soon to be available in 9 different countries
  • Perfect for the holidays and family get-togethers!

How to Play

During each round, a question is presented and players secretly enter their guesses on the iPad. For example, “How many hot dogs are eaten in North America every minute?” After each player has submitted their guess, all answers are displayed and the real answer is revealed. Your answer may be off by 10 or 10 million, but as long as you’re the player with the closest guess, you win the round and advance around the “board.”
