Calling on all aspiring actors, producers and film directors … get your star studded trivia hat on cause it’s time to get buzzing! This is Rob Alvarez, Product Marketing Manager for the Buzz franchise. Hopefully, you had a chance to check out the 80th Academy Awards last night, which took place at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles. In celebration of the awards and the upcoming March release of Buzz! The Hollywood Quiz, we’ve had some pretty cool stuff going on within the Buzz world.
Last week at GDC, we held a Buzz! The Hollywood Quiz charity challenge where 16 players from a number of different media outlets including Joystiq, Destructiod, GamesRadar, CNet, TotalPlayStation.com and others competed for a donation to the charity of their choice. Sam Bishop of TotalPlayStation.com took home the prize with his ultimate Buzz skills and made his donation to the SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).
Thanks to everyone who participated in the quiz contest a couple of weeks back. Answers are below to the Hollywood Quiz questions featured in the contest.
Winners have been notified, so congrats to those who took home prizes! As soon as all the necessary paperwork is complete, we’ll go ahead and post the names of the winners. Last but not least, we wanted to share with you a new game trailer for Buzz! The Hollywood Quiz. We hope you enjoy it. On March 11th get ready to experience the ultimate game show, live in your living room: “Buzz! The Hollywood Quiz.” Stay tuned!
