Hello again, YouPlayers!  We're just putting the finishing touches on a new game in the YouPlay game laboratories and want to know: would anyone like a sneak peek?  We’re offering you the chance to become part of the game development process: an opportunity to play, test and review our new game! 

For the next few weeks, we’ll be asking friendly, helpful and interested premium members to help us!  You must be patient, open-minded and able to carry out at least five ‘test’ game plays per day: try our current work-in-progress and let us know what you think.  We'll also be selecting a handful of visitors with free accounts to help us too.

UPDATE: The game is now available for all members, so check it out, here's a shortcut link: Trivia Buzz! 

So here’s how it works: post a comment here and tell us a bit about why you’d like to be part of the testing program. What skills, abilities or qualities can you offer as part of the team? Or, let us know which is your favourite game currently on the site today and why?

Starting Monday 17th October, interested premium members will be notified of the their invitation into the testing laboratories. If you’ve been part of our previous beta testing campaigns then you’ll already be able to join in: check your profile page  for the ‘Beta Tester’ badge to see if you have beta testing status.

Thinking of becoming a premium member?  There are more and more benefits every day – incidentally, we’ve recently updated the print templates for the crossword category and also added entirely new print templates for our huge range of logic puzzles – it really is great value - get your premium membership today!

What other new features you want to see? Feel free to leave us a comment on that too, and regularly check back here for more about the results of our experiments.

Looking forward to the discussion, see you in the lab!

Dr. Play

PS. Have you tried our latest game for the Australian Olympic Committee?  It's the Boxing Kangaroo on a mountain bike course, entitled BK Pedals and it's great fun!  Happy pedalling!

Hi folks! It's been a busy week here - many thanks for such an awesome effort by all our testers - we'll be posting an update to the game in the early part of this week (the main feature: avoiding the undefined questions ;-) And, pending some further flight-testing, Trivia Buzz will be released to the entire YP community shortly after. So, stay tuned and happy puzzling!

Update applied, is anyone still seeing 'undefined' questions?  Ensure you're getting the latest game version by restarting your browser.  There may be a pause of a seconds or two if the server response takes a while to reach your browser. Have fun!

Hey, I'd love to be a tester - have beta tested for many games in the past (including the Battlefield series). I'm thorough and have good observation skills and attention to detail.

Not playing it so much now because the ad still wont play for level three. Have reported it though the bug page a few times but nothing has changed. It's VERY ANNOYING. The game is quite fun but would be much better if I could proceede past level 2.

Trivia Buzz v1.0 is now live for all members! Thanks to all the members of our great testing team for doing such a wonderful job of proving the game's features. There are some great suggestions for new features too, which we've definitely taken on board and may incorporate in due course, so stay tuned for more. Once again, thanks to everyone who tried the game for a really fantastic response, happy Trivia Buzzing!

Thanks Dr Play, will be fun to see others on the scoreboard also for Trivia Buzz. It would be exciting to play side by side with others in this game, as Winnjazza had suggested. Thanks for this new challenge, I do hope to get to Level 3 soon!

I have just played trivia Buzz and was overjoyed to see that the anvil has been abolished. I think that the new way is much more positive, it made me want to play again as before I didn't want to because it was a bit of an anticlimax. Thank you very much.

I have just played Trivia Buzz for the first time and quite enjoyed it. I would have liked to have kept playing but it would not load after two levels. (twice) I hope the problem can be fixed soon.
