We wanted to be able to programatically solve trivia games. Mostly inspired by a burning desire to finally win a game of HQ Trivia, we came up with a two-pronged approach:

  • Use OCR to scan the user's screen for questions
  • Reverse-engineer HQ Trivia's app (and later, their several network protocols) to view the encrypted stream
