Become inspired to visit art museums, read beloved classic books, impress friends by citing capitals of countries in the news, add mythological references to your conversations, retake the SAT with your new-found vocabulary knowledge or skip off enthusiastically to your science class.
There are six categories in the free edition:
Once you select a category, start the test of your classical knowledge. Answer as many questions as you can in 60 seconds. There is a clue on the left and four possible answers on the right. Only one is correct. If needed, there are hints available to help you arrive at the right answer. Or, you can skip questions. Answer correctly and gain a point. Answer incorrectly and lose a point.
There are 9 Easter Eggs (aka IQ-Dex items) for each category and you will want to find them all. As you play the game, if the question screen has an associated IQ-Dex item and if you get the answer correct on the first guess, it is added to your IQ-Dex treasures — even if you use hints!
The IQ-Dex has interesting background stories for entertainment and amusement. Statistically, you may get lucky and you may find the IQ-Dex Easter Eggs early in the game. However, each game is randomized so it could be challenging to get all of the IQ-Dex items for all of the categories. But while you are trying, other facts are being reinforced in your memory.
As always, we are looking for your suggestions as we continue to improve the app.
