As we get closer to the 10th anniversary of WordPress, people have been asking me if I know of any WordPress trivia plugins or games that they could use for their 10th anniversary birthday party. While I don’t know of any plugins, there is a WordPress Jeopardy style website you can use that if nothing else, can help generate some trivia questions. It’s called WP Gameshow. The concept was created by the organizers of WordCamp Detroit, 2011. When I originally wrote about the site, Anthony stated in the comments:
I’m glad everyone is enjoying the game! It was a lot of fun performing it live and we really would like to see what others can do with the platform. So yes, we do plan on releasing a theme which will allow for you to create your own questions and such. No time on release, but it is in the works.
To this day, nothing has been released although the domain is still active, complete with a game board. I got in touch with Anthony to see if he has made any progress on releasing this as a theme or plugin.
This is one of those things that we never finished for release. I just sent an email to my friend who I worked on it with for the most recent version. As soon as I hear back from him, I’m going to take another run at it and see if it’s “good enough” for use and we’ll try to post a copy of it for download on the trivia site.
I’ll let you know as soon as I hear back from him and have the opportunity to put it up for release.
Once I hear from Anthony about a download link being established, I’ll pass the word along. Until then, you’ll have to use the actual WPGameshow website.
Very cool functionality, definitely got potential for use in classrooms.
