Answers.com has recently introduced: blufr.com, an online trivia game with an attitude:
"blufr is a new trivia-type game that hopefully gets people of all ages addicted to learning obscure facts. There's no evil agenda. Just play and keep playing. Each bluf shows the percentage of people who were fooled by it.
As you continue playing, you’ll notice your blufr score going up or down. When you’re done playing, click "claim score" and enter up to three initials and a web address, if you have one (i.e. blog, profile, etc.). If your score is high enough you'll show up in the "top scores" window.
We are adding more and more blufs on a regular basis so come back often, tell all of your friends and bookmark blufr.com! We promise to keep blufr free and open (right now you don’t even need to register to play)."
blufr trivia can be embedded in blog and website templates.
