CPQ Trivia is Crowdpurr's spin on HQ Trivia. We designed CPQ Trivia to give your own audience the thrill and experience of a "last man standing" Survivor style trivia game.
How Does CPQ Survivor Trivia Work?
With CPQ Trivia your crowd must answer every question correct in order to advance to the next question and ultimately win. If a player answers a question incorrectly or not within the time allotted for each question, they are eliminated and cannot win.
After each question, you can display to your crowd both on their mobile devices and on the large-format presentation viewer who are still "alive" in the game. After your last question is displayed, you can display all the players who answered every question correct and are the ultimate survivors and winners!
Branding CPQ To Your Own Company, Brand, or Client
CPQ Trivia gets a fun default look that is similar to the popular HQ Trivia format. However, you can upload your own logo and backgrounds to make CPQ Trivia look like your company, brand, or client's look and feel. Feel free to come up with your own fun "spin" on the HQ Trivia name, logo, and theme. Updating the logo and backgrounds are premium Crowdpurr features. For more information on how to do that, check out the article Upload Custom Backgrounds To Experiences.
How Players Get Eliminated
CPQ Trivia Players must answer every question correctly in order to keep playing and ultimately win. If they answer incorrectly or time runs out, they get eliminated and can no longer win. There are some advanced options below that "soften" the rules of the game.
Determining The Winners
CPQ Survivor Trivia winners are whichever players answer every single question correctly at the end of your Trivia Game.
You can also configure your CPQ Survivor Trivia to make the winners whichever group of players answer the most questions correctly since sometimes there may be zero players who answered every single question correctly.
Because CPQ uses the Survivor Mode trivia format, there isn't a setting to only allow one winner in a CPQ trivia game. Players keep playing as long as they haven't answered a question incorrectly or run out of time to answer a question. Because of this, you may have multiple winners (or survivors) at the end of your CPQ trivia game.
However, you can simply add enough questions with sufficient difficulty that you just keep going through questions until you only have one player remaining and this would be the winner. The questions will need to be difficult enough to eliminate players down to only one. Be careful though because sometimes you can eliminate all the players in this process if all players answer incorrectly instead of only getting down to one.
If this happens, you'll need to go back to the previous question and view the rankings to see the winners or state that the game did not have a winner. If you run out of questions, or only have a game with a small number of questions (e.g. five to ten questions) you'll likely have multiple winners at the end. You can add up to 100 questions per trivia game.
Building Your CPQ Trivia Game
Building your CPQ Trivia Game works the same other types of Crowdpurr Trivia formats. You use the Experience Dashboard to add questions, answers, and configure the types of questions you ask. To learn more about building your Trivia Game, check out the article Adding, Editing, & Removing Questions.
Support for Live Streaming Video & Audio
At this time, Crowdpurr only offers the crowd-based Trivia Game component that has the same rules and format (e.g. Last Man Standing) as HQ. Integrating a live video or audio stream is up to you. There are users who are doing this to some level of success and the YouTube Channel Stream Geeks recently did a live stream on how to create your own HQ-Style Trivia Game using Crowdpurr and YouTube live streaming.
More information and their demonstration is available at the following YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP2ypQPaslo&feature=youtu.be.
With all that said, we are working on future integrations with streaming platforms. Stay tuned for updates.
CPQ Survivor Trivia Advanced Options
Crowdpurr has added a few useful advanced features that you may want to take advantage of when using CPQ Survivor Mode for your crowd. You may not want your Trivia Game to work exactly like HQ Trivia. Because of this we've added the following Advanced Options:
Allow Eliminated Players To Keep Answering?
Enabling this settings allows your players to keep playing along after they have been eliminated. Eliminated players won't be able to win, but they can still have fun by answering questions and finding out if they answered correctly. If this setting is disabled, eliminated players will be locked out from answering future questions which sometimes isn't as fun for your crowd.
Always Show A Winner(s)?
Enabling this setting will always show a winner on both the Projector View and Mobile View when you enable Show Rankings (R) on the Experience Dashboard. So in the event that all of your players are unable to answer every question correctly, this setting will you show you the player(s) that answered the most questions correctly as the winners.
If this setting is disabled, players must answer every single question correct to win on the leaderboard. If no players answered every question correctly, Crowdpurr will say that there were no survivors on the final question.
Displaying Question Results & Current Survivors To Your Crowd
During the Trivia Game, after each question is answered, you have several views you can show to your crowd such as showing how the crowd responded to the question, what the correct answer was to a question, and who the current survivors are. These "views" update on both the Projector View and all crowd Mobile Views which is all the player devices.
Show Answer Results For Each Question
During the Trivia Game, after each question is answered, you can show how many players voted for each answer option. You can do this by clicking on Show Live Answer Results (A) on the Experience Dashboard under the Viewer Controls section. You can also press the A key on your keyboard to enable this setting.
Show Correct Answer For Each Question
You can then reveal the correct answer to the question. You can do this by clicking on Show Correct Answer (C) on the Experience Dashboard under the Viewer Controls section. You can also press the C key on your keyboard to enable this setting.
Show Current Survivors
Lastly, you can show the current results. In a CPQ Survivor Trivia game, there is no "leaderboard" with points and rankings. Instead, a Survivor List is displayed with each player's nickname. The players shown have answered every question correct in the amount of time allotted for each question. You can do this by clicking on Show Rankings (R) on the Experience Dashboard under the Viewer Controls section. You can also press the R key on your keyboard to enable this setting.
Showing Final Results
At the end of your list of trivia questions, you can show the crowd the final Survivor List and announce the winner(s) of your game!
Exporting Trivia Game Results
When your Trivia Game is complete, every answer from every participant can be exported to CSV for import into Excel or Google Docs. You can also collect participant lead capture data like First Name, Last Name, Phone Number, Email, Age, and many others. This data can be exported for lead capture from your audience. Lead capture data is also tied to answer results so you can see who voted for which answers!
At a minimum, your players must input a nickname in order to have their name displayed on the Survivor List.
