The team behind HQ Trivia is readying to deliver a brand new game for 2018, and this one is for the word nerds. According to reporting from Digiday, the new game will be called HQ Words. Based on Wheel of Fortune format, players will be tasked with guessing phrases one letter at a time while competing live against other players. The game is expected to launch sometime in October.

It's been just over a year since the world was first introduced to HQ Trivia, a daily trivia game show that you play on your phone. After a few months of iOS exclusivity, it eventually launched on Android by the end of 2017 and has maintained a cult following throughout 2018 thanks to its mix of charming hosts, challenging trivia, and of course the prospect of winning real cash.

One key to HQ's success has been strategic partnerships with brands and film studios, along with piggybacking on major events such as the Super Bowl, national holidays, and big award shows — such as last night's $100,000 last-man-standing game tied into the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Details of how the new game will work are scant at this point, but much of the core gameplay seems to be stripped straight from phrase guessing games like Wheel of Fortune — or perhaps Hangman if there's no actual wheel involved. Players will be given a blanked-out phrase with a clue and a list of letters to choose from, with points awarded for selecting the right letters and strikes given out if you guess wrong. The top player or players with the most points will split the daily jackpot. According to Digiday's reporting, HQ Words is but one of several new show concepts that the HQ team is working on at it's New York headquarters.

There's no word whether the game will be available for both iOS and Android right at launch, but we'll keep you up to date with the latest news and information as it becomes available.
