How to Play Zonk

Zonk is an easy-to-play, fun quiz game. When you get a question correct, you can choose up to 3 point-scoring cards, and you can "bank" those points at any time. Watch out for the ZONK, though! It will take away all the points you earned so far on this turn. Either way, it's on to the next question!

Score Points!

When you answer a question correctly, you get to pick up to three cards, with values from 100 to 500 points. You can choose to "bank" your points at any time. If you choose a "Zonk" card, you lose all the points earned for this question, so choose carefully! On the last question, you can choose as many cards as you dare.

Team Game

Note: team mode is currently only available on the iOS version of the app.

Stealing a Question
