A lot of times, one know-it-all will dominate at trivia thanks to his wide breadth of knowledge. However, iKNOW by Tactic Games US evens out the playing field a bit with its unique gameplay, giving everyone a fair shot at winning. IKNOW is designed for two to six players, and it’s best for kids and adults 15 and up. In the box, you’ll find 400 cards, a game board, six iKNOW tokens, six iBET tokens and a category token, as well as 25 white and 25 black point chips. To play iKNOW, everyone will have to answer the same trivia question with the help of three clues. However, what’s unique about this game is that before the clues are read, you’ll have to guess how many clues you’ll need to get the answer, as well as create a wager against one of your fellow players. This wagering element allows you to gain points even if you’re not the best at trivia. The first person to get to 20 points wins.

SwagIQ stands out from the rest on this list because it doesn’t directly dole out cash. Instead, you play to win SwagBucks, which can then be exchanged for cash via PalPal, or redeemed for gift cards for popular sites like Amazon or Steam, stores such as Barns & Noble, JCPenney, and Bath & Body Works, or even donate your winnings to charities including Doctors Without Borders or ALS. SwagIQ also lets you earn points based on recruiting new players, and you’ll get a 10% cut of whatever they make playing the app (which, admittedly, sounds a bit like a trivia pyramid scheme to me). You can also spend your SwagBucks to buy back into games, and you earn a few SwagBucks each time you play. 100 SwagBucks convert to 1 USD, but there are deals to be had if you redeem your SwagBucks for gift cards.
