What is the meaning of the word "BiQui" – the name of the game?
BiQui is an artificial word that we invented. It is composed of the first letters of the words "Bible" and "Quiz". It is also the name of the small and helpful mascot of the game.
Can I also use a desktop computer to submit questions?
Yes. All you need is access to the Internet. You can open the website biqui.org/en
and log in with your username and password. There you will find the header "new question" where you can submit your question.
How will the submitted questions be checked?
Before a question is approved into our question pool a lecturer will review the question. If there are uncertainties about the question or the answers the lecturer will approach the submitter. Apart from this the lecturer will check if there is already a similar question in our question pool. Afterwards the question will be approved.
Why is the source material of a question not provided?
This has different reasons:
On one hand not every question was submitted with the source material.
On the other hand many source references contain links which are protected by copyright or contain legal protected content. This source material can not be published by us. The submitted source references are used by us only to review and check the questions.
We encourage everybody to do personal research on the subject of a question if the right answer is surprising for you.
What can I do, if I notice a mistake in one of the questions?
To report a mistake you first have to open the question. Than click the button "Report a mistake". Before reporting content-related mistakes in a question please do your own research first.
A content-related mistake has to be reported together with a reference to an appropriate source.
How is a question's level of difficulty determined?
First the difficulty of a question is determined by the person submitting the question. Than the lecturer will check if the level of difficulty seems to be appropriate. Since this is determined by personal preference after some time the level of difficulty will be matched with the number of correct or incorrect answers.
What is a joker? How can I get them?
With a 50:50 joker you can delete two wrong answers. Click on 50:50 while answering the question.
Then you have to decide between two answers only. Attention: Each joker can only be used once.
There are several ways to receive jokers:
- You receive a joker if you add a profile picture.
- At reaching a new level, you will receive one or more jokers.
- You will receive a joker after playing and completing 5 games with a random player.
- For each question you submit and accept, you will receive a joker.
- If you support the work as a translator: For each translated question you will receive a joker.
In the options of my account I chose "Questions for adults or advanced". Despite my choice the game only displays the questions for children. Why?
If the other player choose "Questions for children", the game will automatically be started using the questions for children. That way parents can play with their children.
Players who chose "Questions for children" are identified in your list of friends by a small circeled "K" on their profile picture.
How is the amount of playable categories and cards for a game determined?
The lowest setting out of both players will be used. You can see in your list of friends how many cards and categories can be played by each player.
Is it planned to set up a Highscore-list?
No. Although a player can play "against" another player we do not want to encourage a sense of rivalry. So there will be no Highscore-list. The game is supposed to be fun and educational at the same time.
Can I deactivate BiQui's notifications permanently or temporarly?
Yes, this is possible. Please use the options on the top right corner of the games main page.
Why is the games chat-function limited to predetermined sentences?
The identity of each player can not be verified. In order to protect our players from persons with dishonest or bad intentions we predetermined the sentences that can be exchanged between players.
Can I use BiQui and my BiQui account on more than one device?
Yes, that is possible.
Which devices are supported by BiQui?
All devices that work with Android 4.1 or iOS 8 or higher. That includes both smartphones and tablets.
You can support BiQui in several ways. Click here

. If your ideas are good and we are able to realize them in an appropriate amount of time, we will consider to include them into BiQui.
