Q6: MSN Messenger’s Mystery Tab

09-Mar-05 08:09 pm EDT Leave a comment Go to comments

Looks as if there’s more coming to the world of instant messaging!  MSN Messenger appears posied to release an online game-show of some sort – all we know for the moment is the title: "Q6".  There’s nothing on the ‘net – no news articles; none of the major game sites appear to be carrying any stories related to it; not GameSpot nor GameSpy – not CNet; nor any of the other various technical journals I browse…

So what the heck is this new tab I see in my MSN Messenger contacts window all about????

All Microsoft will say about it right now either on it’s Q6 website or after clicking the tab in the MSN Messenger client window is:

"Q6 is a challenging, team-based question-and-answer game that uses MSN Messenger.  Each week, you’ll have the opportunity to win a great prize package.  Plus your team will be awarded points for correct answers.  If your team has the most points at the end of the game, you could each win a Dell prize package valued at over $3000." (…presumably in USD)

"The game begins March 24, 2005, so register today."

Of course all this does is take you to the http://www.playq6.com website, whcih doesn’t offer any more information – just an advisory to return to register after March 10th.

I’m a gamer, and a history buff both – used to actually pay attention to Jeapordy back in the day.  So this caught my attention and I’d like to give it a try.  If you’re interested in helping form a team, get in touch with me; although hopefully the committment of time isn’t on the heavy side because I’ll be dropping out of the game fast if it is.
