The weekly trivia quiz that I have been sending out across the world were free for all to download, however this is going to stop after the last ones are posted. (this may just be a temporary thing glitch)
I’m sorry if this inconveniences anyone but hey, you’ve been getting them for nothing.
However I am looking to see if there is a way I can still carry on sending them to anyone who still wants them and is prepared to pay £1 per quiz per week.
Please contact me if this is suitable to you ?
Thanks and good luck in the future
