TL;DR - Trivia Night is live! Send me feedback, and be sure to use code
EARLYBIRD if you buy anything.
If you've been following along with my recent monthly reviews, you'll know I've been hard at work building a platform to host virtual trivia nights. I'm proud to say that I'm finally done with the first version of the site and am officially launching it to the public! If you haven't been following along, here's the full story:

Having participated in supremely mediocre trivia nights as team-builders at work, I decided that corporate events were my first target market. I wanted to make it easy to create a high-quality trivia experience for groups, which means offering two products:
While there are a million improvements I'd still like to make, the first version of a site that supports these two models is live today. I'd love if you check it out:www.trivianight.fun
