Trivia Crack took the virtual trivia world by storm in 2013 when it made its debut. The app’s parent company, Etermax, has since put out several follow-up games in the style of Trivia Crack. The most popular one of the bunch is Trivia Crack 2. Both games allow players to compete against random opponents or the clock in real time in games of trivia. (And if you’re curious which of the two games we prefer, find out here!).
Trivia Crack follows the format of Trivial Pursuit, the iconic board game loved by many. The game features six general knowledge categories that will satisfy anyone’s thirst for knowledge and fun facts. One distinctive feature of the game, and the reason it’s grown to become so successful, is player contributions. Players are encouraged to submit their own questions and rate the questions they get to answer. You can even take part in translating the questions to your language! Because of player contributions, the app is able to surprise users with new questions every single day. You never have to repeat a question.
With that exciting element, the game never gets boring. But that’s not the only original feature of the app! Have you heard of Trivia Crack’s pets (not to be confused with the Trivia Crack Trivies!)? If you’ve been playing the game, you might have come across this interesting feature. If you’ve been wondering what the purpose of it is, then you’ve come to the right place! And no, it’s not just for kids! Keep reading to find out about Trivia Crack’s pets, cookies, and more!
What Do Pets in Trivia Crack Do?
If you’ve played the game in the past year or so, you might have noticed that you were given a pet. Since then, you have to feed the pet cookies to keep it alive. Maybe your pet even died, in which case you know that… nothing happens if your pet dies! It seems as though the pet serves purely as a decoration.
While the true purpose of pets for the players is still unclear, we have some theories regarding its purpose for Etermax. The main idea is that the pet is there to encourage you to play more often. You have to play to earn cookies to feed your pet. If you don’t feed your pet, it dies. Therefore, you must play every day, earn cookies, and be a good parent to your pet. (And playing every day is a great step towards winning more often!)
Even though keeping your pet alive sounds quite strict, there is some wiggle room. If you never click on the pet icon, it’s never really going to die. You’re just going to watch its sad eyes looking at you from the screen and guilt tripping you into giving it some cookies. There is no way to get rid of it, but you can just ignore it.
To answer the question “what do pets in Trivia Crack do?”, they don’t really do anything. You can name them, buy them clothes, and give them accessories. Most importantly, feed them and keep them alive for the fun of it! Or don’t, it’s not going to affect your scores in the game.
How Do You Earn Cookies in Trivia Crack?
Earn cookies to feed your pet by playing Classic games. You’ll know which questions bring you cookies when you see a cookie next to the question. You can also get cookies by winning a Survival Mode game. The cookies will appear after you win the game. Finally, you can buy cookies with your Trivia Crack credits in the game. That’s an unpopular option, as you have to use real money.
If you choose to keep your pet, you have to understand the level of commitment required. It will continue to advance and grow throughout the game, as you continue to feed it. When it reaches new levels, it is going to need more and more cookies to survive.
How Do You Get More Cookies in Trivia Crack?
If you’re really keen on keeping your pet alive and the game hasn’t been giving you opportunities to earn more cookies the natural way, you can buy them. Use your credits to do that. Go to the Pet section and select the buying option. Buy enough cookies to feed your pet and push it to the next level.
Why Am I Not Getting Any Cookies?
Trivia Crack users have been complaining about not being able to get any cookies for their pets. It seems as though this issue began a few months ago and continues to trouble many players. Some players have gone as long as a whole day without getting any questions that are rewarded with cookies.
If that’s your case, don’t worry. If you keep playing, they will eventually start coming through. The game wants you to keep playing and that’s what you have to do to get your hands on some cookies. If you’re left dry, don’t click on your pet until you have enough cookies to feed it. That will give you some extra time.
Why Can’t I Get a Pet?
If you’re asking this question, you must have just downloaded Trivia Crack! If that’s the case, you’re in for a treat. If the app doesn’t offer you the opportunity to get a pet right away, that’s no reason to worry. Get into it, play a few games, and the pet should pop up. In order to speed up that process, you can spend lots of time on the app. Play as often as you can and, eventually, you will see a little box in the middle of your screen with your pet in it.
How Do You Change Your Trivia Crack Pet?
You don’t exactly get to choose what pet you get each time you get a pet. However, if you’re bored with your current pet and want to get a new one, just let this one starve! Keep visiting your pet and don’t feed it any cookies. It won’t take long before it dies and you can get a new pet with a new name. Unfortunately, you don’t get to choose the pet.
Before you get rid of your pet completely, consider personalizing it. Make it look cool with some accessories. Go to the Pet section. Once you’re there, you will see a hat icon in the top right corner. Click on that to pick different hats and accessories for your pet. You will notice that the items are not free; you need to unlock them using cards. Purchase credits with real money to buy cards and unlock accessories.
