NBC News has launched a new video trivia game application on Facebook called "What’s Your  iCue?"

The video trivia game was developed by NBC Learn, the educational division of NBC News. The game allows Facebook users to answer questions based on video footage from NBC News archives. Users have 30 seconds to answer questions and can play the game in real time with their Facebook friends.

NBC says What’s Your iCue? is the only video trivia quiz game on Facebook with categories including current events, history, arts and technology.
