Gold & Silver Pawn Shop “Rick Harrison’s Trivia Challenge” Hits Social and Mobile Platforms
Rick Harrison knows trivia. Recognizable as a co-founder of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop and star of HISTORY’s “Pawn Stars” and “Pawnography,” Harrison also knows business, leading him to establish a new venture in the development of “Rick Harrison’s Trivia Challenge.”
Harrison and long-time business partner Jim Scott created Old Man Interactive, headquartered in Las Vegas, to develop and publish games for social and mobile platforms. Both risk takers, serial entrepreneurs and deal-made-on-a-hand-shake type of guys – Harrison and Scott began with the name of the company as a tip of the hat to Rick’s dad, Richard Sr.
“We both love the name because Rick’s dad is smart, patient, generous and tough as nails,” said Scott. “The name is ironic, too, considering this is a tech company and my dad barely operates a computer,” laughed Harrison. Both agree that the timing and development of “Rick Harrison’s Trivia Challenge,” the debut game for the company, was the perfect combination to launch this business partnership.
In “Rick Harrison’s Trivia Challenge,” a speed trivia game, players will encounter thousands of questions in upwards of 15 categories ranging from scholarly to pop culture, including many brain-bending questions personally included by Harrison.
Players begin at the front entrance of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, greeted by Harrison who will serve as their mentor throughout the game. Players are challenged to answer 10 trivia questions within a set time period. Level to level throughout the game, players will encounter the likes of the Old Man, Corey and Chumlee, offering advice and opportunities for level advancement.
Like many app-based games, “Rick Harrison’s Trivia Challenge” is free to download and play. What makes “Rick Harrison’s Trivia Challenge” exceptionally different: players can also earn “gold coins” as reward for completing various levels of the game. These virtual coins can be collected then exchanged for swag such as T-shirts, hats and other items and one-of-a-kind experiences from the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.
“Now everyone can exercise his or her brain the way I do. I love the challenge of speed trivia,” said Harrison. “You need not be technologically brilliant to operate the game. Be ready to answer quickly to advance levels. We developed what is a fun, interactive game for novice or expert trivia lovers. I bet everyone who plays will still learn a thing or two.”
