We’ve already featured some of the many examples of gamers making the world a better place. Now there’s a new example from a Seattle company called Game It Forward. Quingo, Game It Forward’s first effort, is a fun hybrid of bingo and trivia, and it’s available now on iTunes for the iPhone and iPad.
Like many casual games, Quingo is free to download, but it hits you up for cash every now and then as you play. In Quingo you can pay to add time to the clock, see all the answers, and even “cheat.” But with this game you don’t mind so much because a portion of the money goes to charity.
The six charities currently benefiting from Quingo are Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, PAWS, Kiva (microloans), Seattle Children’s, Splash (clean water), and The Martinez Foundation (education).
