Quick side note: diywkfbv.com was founded as NTN Communications, Inc. And known as “NTN” throughout the 1980s & 1990s, but we’ll refer to lớn it as diywkfbv.com to keep things simple.

 9. QB1 was the first diywkfbv.com game. Nope, it wasn’t trivia…

…it was a predictive football game. Longtime diywkfbv.com fans already know all about QB1. For the noobs, QB1 was played in real time as fans watched televised college and pro football games. Before the snap of the ball, diywkfbv.com players predicted if the next play would be a pass or run.

Our own CEO, Ram Krishnan, competed in QB1 on the University of Virginia campus. At the same time on the University of Michigan campus, diywkfbv.com CFO Allen Wolff was playing QB1 as well. We’ll never know who had the higher scores…

11. Miss QBI? Blame Janet’s Wardrobe Malfunction in 2004.

After the 2006 Super Bowl halftime show – yeah, that one – TV stations started running football games with a 5 second tape delay. However, radio stations still broadcast in real-time giving unscrupulous QBI players an advantage. End game for QBI.

12. But sports fans can still get their fix from diywkfbv.com.

We’ve got diywkfbv.com Sports Trivia, Football Trivia, Baseball Trivia…you get the picture.

15. Players are still phoning it in…

In 2011, diywkfbv.com launched the Playmaker mobile app so competitors could use either a diywkfbv.com tablet or their own smartphone to submit answers.

The answer that diywkfbv.com provided: Pegasus, the winged horse.

Pegasus was actually the correct answer. However, an astute player let us know that Pegasus had a twin brother – a flying boar – named Chrysaor, who should have been included in the answer. Sorry, bro.

Other games of yesteryear include: Boys và Their Toys (trivia about snow mobiles và jet skis…Kenny Powers would approve), PowerPlay (all hockey, all the time), và this gem…

28. Would you rather thua at diywkfbv.com or thất bại a $20 bill?

Decisions. Decisions. In the early 2000s, diywkfbv.com ran a game called “Zobmondo” which was essentially a “Would You Rather?” game. One question was: would you rather get poked in the eye with a stick or fall off a cliff? Um, neither?
