You’ll have the chance to prove it on May 24, when fans are invited to test their trivia knowledge against a host of celebrities for the official launch of himojo’s new multiplayer trivia game for Facebook, The Big Bluff.

Armed with an exclusive pass, the winner and a friend will walk the red carpet and have access to the exclusive party where the celebrities will be going head-to-head with fans online while DJ Tina T spins the latest in hip-hop. Los Angeles-area residents can enter to win by following @TheBigBluff on Twitter and re-tweeting posts pertaining to the contest. Additional contest guidelines can be found on The Big Bluff‘s Facebook page.
The Big Bluff is a trivia game that incorporates some elements of Texas Hold’em poker. The dealer starts by displaying three cards in the community hand; the first shows the question category, and the following two cards show hints to the answer. Players can then match the pot to continue playing and view the fourth and fifth cards, which display another hint, and finally the question that the players must correctly answer. Players can either fold along the way if they’re not sure of the answer, or bluff their way to the end, raising the pot and forcing their competitor’s hand.

Plans are also in the works to produce a television game show version of The Big Bluff, which will be co-produced by himojo and TV producer Andrew Glassman, whose Glassman Media company produced NBC’s Average Joe. Players will have the opportunity to compete in the online game and win a seat to play on the television game show.
