NEWSMEISTER: Daily News Trivia Quiz tests your knowledge of current events that truly are...current. The content of NEWSMEISTER trivia is refreshed daily so each game poses 16 questions and answers which reflect the present state of the world around you. You won’t encounter old, recycled questions while using this app.

Please Note: The question format is now 16 questions.

It's Challenging

NEWSMEISTER isn’t trying to stump you with esoteric trivia; the game is designed for people like you. People who are interested in current events. People who engage in the latest social and political discourse. People whose awareness extends beyond their immediate world. You don't need a Ph.D from Harvard or MIT. Just follow the news!

It's Quick

NEWSMEISTER is a quick game. At roughly three minutes long, it’s a great way to occupy yourself during a quick bus or subway ride, or while taking a coffee break. We like to think of NEWSMEISTER as short, but substantial news trivia.

It's Social

How do you stack up against other NEWSMEISTER players? NEWSMEISTER shows daily leaderboards that list high scores and other interesting data from the previous day. See how you fare and compare your score to that of your friends or people who live in the same city or state.


Take advantage of NEWSMEISTER’s in-game chat while competing against your friends. Our chat interface is easy-to-use and non-obtrusive so don’t worry: chatting and playfully heckling your opponent won’t disrupt the game.
