Advise you about what? How to make one? Should you make one? What happens if you win? What happens if you lose?

You can only wager a % of your points. The topic will come up as well. It is just you and Sploofus (Justin) at that point...if you answer correctly, you win the points you wagered. If not...you lose them. You get one token for every level...and that is what you use to wager. GOOD LUCK!!

When you open your Question Of The Day, you will notice that it gives you the subject of the question. Directly above the button you push to start the quiz is a small box which asks you if you want to wager some of your points on this question.

You get 1 wager token for every 10 Questions Of The Day you get correctly.

When you check the wager box & click the start box, you will go to another page which asks you how much you want to wager. I believe the maximum is 25% of your current total. This page will also give you the maximum number of points you can wager.

You are playing against yourself. If you get the Question Of The Day in under 30 seconds (like all Questions Of The Day), you win the amount you wagered, plus the normal points you get for getting the answer right. If you do not answer the Question Of The Day in the time allowed, the amount you wagered will be deducted from your total.

Here is some unsolicited advise. Always accept a showdown challenge. If you are challenged, you can never lose any points. If you win, you do get points. You have nothing to lose. If the challenger loses, they do lose some of their points.

Good luck...

Phil, Thank you so much for taking the time to give a very understandable answer to the question on wagers (and challenges). The original person that asked the question is so right -- it is very unclear about wagers. Sploofus (Justin) needs to make it more clear for all. We have gained almost 2,000 members since I joined and if I didn't know, how many of those don't know either.

Enjoy, HAPPY HOLIDAYS, &
POW's / MIA's ~~~ You are NOT Forgotten !!!

I'd like advise from the top of the leaderboard. Do you always wager the maximum? I figure if you get the TQOTD right more than 50% of the time it pays to always wager the maximum. That must be how those people get into the millions of points, right?

Wager advice:
Wait for a category you feel confident about...you can place a wager on the question of the day anytime. It doesn't have to be immediate.

Don't wager after you get higher into questions answer for the next level. You lose the questions you answered correctly, as well as pointed wagered if you answer incorrectly.

I usually wager the max or close to it, unless I have been having a run of bad luck on questions. Then I sometimes get gun shy. They are ,after all, just point. I still need a dime to accompany all my points to buy a cup of coffee at the coffee pot.

Snce it takes so long to get wager tokens, it seems a bit of a waste to not bet the maximum.

I always wager the maximum, and it only took me about four months to reach the top 20 of the leaderboards. So, that's the upside.

If you want to know the downside of wagering the maximum, just look at my profile and admire the nice downward slant of my point totals for the last 30 days.

Oh well, you win some, you lose some.
