Trivia Screenshot

Trivia Game

A Full MEAN stack app I created in 4.5 hours for an exam. I've since gone in and cleaned it up just a bit, and fixed a few bugs, but the core was created in the 4.5-hour time frame. It is a site with very basic login/registration, where users can log in and either play a trivia game where they are given 3 random questions from the site's database, or they can add their own questions to the database to be used in the game. The user's final scores are stored in the database and displayed on the homepage.
