The social trivia game Qrank (pronounced "crank") is no more.
Co-founders and Austinites Rodney Gibbs and Michael Baird posted a message titled “Goodbye” on the game’s website on Monday, and announced that that morning’s edition would be the last of the daily quiz.
Qrank had been voraciously consumed by a legion of loyal players since 2010. As explained on the game’s website, the goal was to “choose 15 of the 20 possible questions and answer them quickly and accurately to beat your friends and earn achievements.” The game was available on Facebook and as a mobile app.
But while Qrank maintained close to 25,000 “likes” on Facebook and more than 8,500 Twitter followers, interaction with all of those fans waned over the last several months.
