There are thousands of blufs (or trivia bits) that make up Answers.com’s social trivia game blufr, and in the past couple months we’ve added hundreds more. So if you were worried about reaching the end of a category – or the entire game – get back into it!

So, if you’re wondering whether it’s true or false that eggplant comes in different colors… There’s one more place to go to play and find out.
Go the blufr application page on Facebook and click ‘Get application’ below the profile picture. Get even more hooked by inviting friends to join, right from the first screen. Apologies in advance for all the work you won’t get done…

WikiLeaks, the rogue media organization that works to publish confidential diplomatic and classified documents and videos, is itself the center of the media’s attention in the last week after it unleashed hundreds of thousands of confidential cables from U.S. records.
Well, at least that’s all ‘way.’
But what else do you know? blufr just posted the latest bonus category – WikiLeaks – so it’s time to find out.
Way or no way:
Keep up with current events – and play blufr to figure out fact from fiction…
You’ve played blufr, earned awards, and gotten cozy on the Top of the heap. So what comes next?
Challenge your friends further on blufr with homemade blufs!
Way or no way?
bluf-o-grams are blufs that you create and send to your friends – or frenemies. Blow their minds with true or false information about you, them, or any topic. Share your custom-made blufs on Facebook, Twitter or email.
By the way, you can also create non-personal blufs and submit them to the wider bluf database for everyone to play. Acceptable blufs will have to conform to certain criteria, so make ‘em good!
You can easily create and share bluf-o-grams: go to your profile (make sure you’re signed in) and click Create a bluf-o-gram next to the bluf-o-grams tab, or share ones you’ve already created by clicking the tab itself.
Fill in the form, submit and share.

blufr addict (and designer) Denise spotted the following sticker at Bally’s Gym on 32nd and 7th in New York City yesterday:
According to Denise, the locker might belong to a gym staff member. Hey, if it’s your locker (and you can prove it!), let us know and we’ll send you a lil somethin somethin…
Did you know?
You didn’t? Well, maybe that’s because none of it is true…
Or is it?
