We built a community quiz game using Ruby for the backend (API) and React
on the frontend. It was created to support multiple frontend games with
the same backend - adding a new quiz game is just a case of artwork /
design / populating the initial questions.
Once launched, players earn reputation by answering questions correctly.
They earn even more reputation by SUBMITTING questions for other players to
enjoy. Our biggest game has new questions being added every day. New
questions go through a review process, and must be approved across 6
dimensions by at least 3 reviewers. As you play the game, you rise through
the ranks, and gain new privileges. Questions are submitted in markdown.
All questions have explanations.
* vanity URL
* multiplayer games
* build your own quiz
* documentation site (eg https://docs.ruby.cards/ )
* Teams feature (play as a team)
* Chat (chat within a team)
* Referral scheme
* Advertising slots (globally or individual country)(
For ruby.cards, we apply ruby syntax highlighting for code blocks.
We'd like to add Bitcoin support (lightning network) next, in several areas:
* rewarding creators
* prize fund for multiplayer
* token purchases
Just need some justification for the additional investment. When we add a
feature for one game though, all the other games benefit..

The platform itself (the ruby backend) supports several other frontend

- Pilot.Cards - aviation knowledge
- Yoga.Cards - aimed at yoga instructors
- Serbian.Cards - Serbian language and culture
- Insure.Cards - insurance
- PyGrail.com - python
- quizr.io - language of R
We also made a data orientated one (cdoquiz.com) that doesn't have any
The project is basically on hold from a development perspective, pending
an uptick in grassroots user interest or investor attention.
