The popular quiz app HQ Trivia has gone down for the first time ever.
The live iPhone game show usually runs at 20:00 GMT every night, but glitched and stopped after question one today (January 25).
Host Scott Rogowsky was forced to ad lib the start of the show before a message reading “technical difficulties” appeared on screen.
The fans were not too pleased.

How can you be talking about this while HQ Trivia servers shut down. How dare you sir… If knowledge is life and trivia is knowledge than…. knowledge is knowledge of trivia knowledge with trivia and…. stuff.

Rogowsky also expressed his dismay at the situation, instructing the concerned Twitter page for the Atlanta Hawks to “SEND SPUD WEBB”.

The app confirmed the news to disappointed players on Twitter.
The game then took a short break before relaunching at 20:30, with Rogowsky announcing: “take two”.
Luckily for fans hoping to cash in on the prize money tonight, the second session continued without a hitch.
