  1. That's really nice and clean.

    As constructuve feedback, maybe it would be good if there was a quick way from the landing page to see how the quiz works (animation or short video).

    Maybe there's a better way I didn't find, but it's a little clunky to have to host a game and then login from another browser to see that the quiz actually looks like (and only then as a 1 player quiz, so you don't see the benefit of leaderboard etc).

  2. Hi HN. My name is Varun, I am 15 years old and I'm building a web app called Quickz.

    It functions similarly to Kahoot, which is a learning platform that we often use in school. I had some annoyances with the direction and features of Kahoot, so I decided to make my own.

    Teachers can create a deck of questions, and host it to their classes. Students will join with a Game Pin, and answer questions simultaneously. Students are rewarded points for answering correctly, and quickly. At the end of the game, a leaderboard is displayed that shows the top players.

    To encourage students to win, the top players are rewarded "creditz", which can be used to unlock more character customization options.

    I've just been working on Quickz for a couple months now in my free time, so it's definitely not full release yet, but please have a look. This is my first big project, and I'm very proud of it 🙂
