Yes! We just added a new trivia format called CPQ Trivia which is our spin on the HQ-style "Last Man Standing" format of trivia. Check it out in this article CPQ Trivia Explained.
Yes! Each one of your trivia rounds will be a separately created Trivia Experience. You can then configure how you want the overall scoring to be calcuated across your various Trivia Experiences. You can then easily "warp" your players between your various trivia rounds when one round ends and another should begin. To learn more, check the help article Multi-Game Trivia Rankings & Trivia Rounds Explained.
You use a Poll to ask your crowd opinion-based questions like, "What's your favorite aspect of our workplace?" or "Who is your favorite co-worker?" You can then show your crowd how they answered each question. With a Trivia Game, each question has a correct answer. Such as "How many donuts are in a baker's dozen?" or "Who sang the hit-song 'Thriller'?" Your crowd is then awarded points for correct answers. You can then show your crowd the live results for how everyone answered, the correct answer, and then a live rankings is displayed for your crowd to see who is leading the game.
Crowdpurr experiences have three playback modes: Host Controlled Mode, Fully Automatic Mode, and Crowd Controlled Mode. Each mode offers different functionalities to deliver your Trivia Game to your crowd depending on the type of event and crowd you have. Check out the following article to learn more: Experience Playback Modes Explained.
Yes. Under the "Trivia Game Settings" tab on the Experience Dashboard, you can enable Table/Team mode. Enabling this mode allows tables or teams to join with only one person from the team acting on their behalf joining the Trivia game. That person enters a team-name versus an individual name and then plays on behalf of the team. The Rankings will then show the team rankings and points versus individual rankings and points.
Additionally, Crowdpurr offers something called the Advanced Team-Mode Add-On. This add-on lets you, as the host, setup teams ahead of time. When a player joins your Trivia Game they must choose a team. Then every player plays the Trivia Game on their device as an individual and on behalf of their team. The Projector View will then show both individual rankings and team rankings. Team rankings are based on average points earned per player. So it doesn't matter if one team has more players than another. To inquire about this special add-on email [email protected]
The idea behind our Trivia Game experience is to write your own custom trivia game for your crowd based on your company, event, brand, co-workers, friends, family, etc.
Ties are unlikely if you use Crowdpurr's points-timer mode. This awards players more points for answering correctly faster. When players answer wrong they also lose points. If your game has a variety of challenging questions, it is unlikely different players/teams will have the exact same amount of points at the end of the game.
Additionally, Crowdpurr sorts by points first and then the number of questions a player or team answered correctly. So even if two players/teams have the same points, their rank is then based on questions answered correctly. We've added additional metics to our ranking algorithm to avoid ties.
In the unlikely event there is a tie, Crowdpurr simply gives those players or teams an equal rank. So though it is unlikely, you could have more than one winner (or first place ranking) or more than one player/team at any rank.
We're working on adding this feature. For now, if you are a Seminar Plan subscriber or above, we can send you a spreadsheet template and we can upload your questions and answers on the back-end.
No. Our default Trivia experience uses a points-timer that awards players more points for answering correctly faster. If a player takes time to Google for the right answer they will not win as many points as a player who already knows the correct answer from their mad trivia knowledge. You can adjust the time for the question's points-timer to your liking.
No. If a player refreshes their browser, the time left to answer a trivia question and earn points does not reset. It loads the correct time from when the host started the question's points-timer.
A multiple-choice question can only have one correct answer.
Text-answer questions (or fill-in-the-blank) allow you to input more than one correct answer that is to be considered correct. So if you create a question such as "Who is the former Heisman Trophy running back who was tried for murdering his wife?" The correct answer you should input is "OJ Simpson". However you should also add additional correct answer variations like "OJ", "O.J.", "O.J. Simpson", and "Simpson". Then if any of the above answers are entered by your crowd they will be considered correct. Any answers entered by your crowd are not case-sensitive.
Additionally, if a player submits a text answer that is correct but doesn't match one of your added correct answers (e.g. "The Juice"), you have the ability to "Mark As Correct" after it is submitted and this answer will be considered correct and award the player the points it should receive.
