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.
When you create a Trivia Game, at a bare minimum, each player is required to enter a nickname on their mobile device. This is used by Crowdpurr to display each player's name on the Rankings Leaderboard which you can enable on the Projector View and Mobile Views at any time.
You may also enable additional "lead capture" fields such as last name, email, address, etc. But at a minimum a nickname must be input by each player to join the Trivia Game. You cannot play a Trivia Game anonymously.
Because every player enters at least a nickname, you can enable the Rankings Leaderboard at any time during your game (e.g. after each question, at the end of the game, etc.) to display the real-time live rankings on both the Projector View and the Mobile View (e.g. player devices). You can also view the rankings privately at all times in the "Rankings" tab on the Experience Dashboard.
The winner is whichever player is ranked first place when your game ends.
Yes. Under the "Trivia Game Settings" tab on the Experience Dashboard, there is a "Team Mode Options" setting where you can enable your trivia game to use "Individual", "Basic Team Mode", or "Advanced Team Mode". In Individual Mode, your players play and are ranked individually. In "Basic Team Mode", one player designated as a team-leader joins the game on their device, enters a team name, and answers questions on behalf of the team. Teams are then ranked. In "Advanced Team Mode", all players join the game and choose a team from a list of available teams (created by the host) and play both individually and as a team. Player are then ranked individually and as a team. Check out the following article to learn more: Team Trivia Modes Explained.
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. We encourage you to make it fun and personal! You can upload old photos of your co-workers and/or family-members or pictures of funny events or places and incorporate those into your questions (e.g. Which boss is this when they were a whiny toddler?).
However, we are working on a new feature that allows you to choose from pre-written sets of trivia questions based on popular trivia categories. This is coming Q42018. Stay tuned.
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.
If you want to get really technical, if you have players who are tied with an equal rank, whoever is listed first, is who answered the most questions the fastest.
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.
