What the Shot

On Twitter

Concept

WTS is a unique quiz game for all movie lovers running since 2010 on Twitter. It was developed in part of the Whatthemovie's project. Follow @whattheshot to play.

Rules

Every ten minutes, a snapshot (up to four) from a movie is sent with a question. You have five minutes to guess the answer by simply replying to the bot (the movie's title, the person's name etc).

Depending of the difficulty of the shot — easy, medium, hard —, the first to guess the answer will get up to ten points, and the others will get some points.

You get double of points by answering the full answer (the full title in its original language for movies, or the full name for people).

Extra

You can send commands to the bot. For example, send rank to get your position in the tops, record to get your personal records and time to see how fast you answered correctly the shot.

More Details

It's not simply a quiz, it's also another way to discover new exciting movies through pictures.
Fun & Challenging

From The Dark Knight Rises to La Dolce Vita, movies are from all genres, decades and countries, to please everybody.

Ranking System

Earn points by answering correctly and compete with other players to reach the Daily, Monthly, Yearly & All Time Hall of Fame!

Push your limits

Can you answer in less than 10 sec? Make 50 points a day? Break your own Records or even the World's Records & get extra points!

Some Hint

A hint about the answer — director, main actor etc— is posted if nobody found the shot yet after three minutes.

In Real Time

The bot interacts with you in real time in many languages (English, Spanish, French) even using sometimes movie quotes.
