APB Speaker & "Jeopardy!" Record Holder Ken Jennings to Launch Trivia Game
12 Sep 2019
The Jeopardy! record holder for most correct responses on average and longest winning streak, APB speaker Ken Jennings, is launching Half-Truth, a trivia game that transcends rote recall and makes trivia accessible to everyone.
Jennings has teamed up with Magic: The Gathering creator Richard Garfield to make a trivia game that is fun and that will "make you feel smart when you play," no matter who you are. As Jennings puts it, “it shouldn’t just be middle-aged dads trading baseball statistics.” The partnership re-conceptualized what a trivia game can look like, designing theirs so every player answers every question in a multiple choice format, where three out of six answers are correct.
Jennings, who famously played against IBM’s Watson supercomputer, is known as a trivia master and one of the most successful game show contestants of all time. The “Michael Jordan of trivia,” he is now a best-selling author and a speaker on matters of education and artificial intelligence at college and corporate events across the country.
