Prepare to skip meals and lose sleep because BMW Motorcycle Magazine, a new website and US-based publisher, has come out with a new and exciting way to spend your spare time. They’ve recently launched a free Beemer Trivia App available for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Apparently, while preparing to expand its issues to four per year, BMW MM needed to find a way to create a little downtime.
This boredom killer application is a trivia game designed by and for the BMW Motorcycle fans. Test your BMW motorcycle knowledge and learn something new while playing this multiple-choice quiz game. According to Sandy Cohen, the editor of BMW Motorcycle Magazine, “BMW riders appreciate the latest in technology, and this new app is a fun way to learn about their favorite brand of motorcycle”.
The Beemer Trivia App is an exciting quiz where players can test their Beemer knowledge with the application’s extensive collection of trivia. Players will definitely learn sufficient details regarding BMW Motorcycles as they play this game, and they can even challenge their friends with its online leader board (optional). You can also submit your own Beemer Trivia through this application. Plus, to make it more exciting, a bonus feature was created: For a limited time, if a player reaches 2500 miles, he will be able to unlock a promo code allowing him to have a discounted BMW Motorcycle Magazine subscription.
This new Beemer Trivia app is definitely a great way to spice up your day. For game lovers and BMW die-hard fans, this app will enhance your BMW riding experience by learning more of the features and history behind your favorite motorcycle brand. Go ahead, show the world what you know. You know you want to.
While we were plying through the 1000’s of motorcycle patents filed recently (that’s right, it’s part of our job description), we stumbled upon this patent. It’s a patent for a board trivia game, based on the successful motorcycle poker runs.
The game is a bit of a combination of trivial pursuit, Poker and roll-and-move games. You start your game at the START location and travel to the hosting cities (like Sturgis, Laughlin, Daytona, etc), ending at the FINISH location (eventually).
Like in other roll-and-move games, you can end up on a trivia question; Trivia questions are all motorcycle related. There are also visual recognition cards, which again are motorcycle related photos or illustrations (called ’WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?’). Apart from the trivia and recognition cards, there’s also a normal set of playing cards (used for the Poker game).
The objective is twofold; 1) finish first going through the USA, and 2) have the winning Poker hand.
There’s also real money and drinking involved, so a real biker game.
Looks like an interesting game to play when the snow has blocked us from riding our roads. Round up a couple of riding buddies, and play the game.
The patent has only recently been registered, so I do not know when the board game will be available, but I don’t think you’ll find it in this year’s Christmas stocking.
