Eric hadn't played HQ yet, and he was on a mission to not just win, but to master the whole damn thing.


He was mentally ready for his first game, was up against 720,000 players, and there was $2,000 at stake. Game on!


He put his coworkers to the test, as he gathered a team of players who had proven to kick ass at HQ.


They were gonna take on the quiz as a group, and they were confident. Maybe a little too confident.

He was determined to win himself, so he contacted some previous HQ winners to see if they could give him any advice.


One of them was Jamie Ortiz, an HQ Trivia winner who had won $6,000. Wow! She recommended Eric go with his gut when playing.


Eric also discovered he worked alongside a four-time HQ Trivia champion in Zack Kornfeld (one of BuzzFeed's Try Guys).


Zack said, "You only have three seconds to Google, but can you google something that points you in the right direction?" Solid advice.

He learned Google helps a lot, and so does having a group of 20 people texting you what they think the answer could be.


"But sometimes, you have to trust yourself, and not trust them." Wise words. Way to go, Eric!
