Survivor Trivia is designed to give your audience the thrill and experience of a "last man standing" Survivor-style trivia game.
With Survivor Trivia your crowd must answer every question correctly 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 on the Projector View and the Mobile View who the current "Survivors" are. After your last question is displayed, you can display all the players who answered every question correctly as the ultimate survivors and winners!
Yes! Crowdpurr allows Embedded Live Streaming directly onto your participants' mobile devices. Your crowd can follow along with a live virtual host that is embedded directly into Crowdpurr's Mobile View. With this feature, there's no need for a second screen! This allows you to create your own live-hosted trivia game show. Currently, the Embedded Live Streaming feature supports YouTube Live, Twitch, and live Zoom Meetings (via YouTube Live or Twitch).
For more information, please check out Adding a Live Stream to Crowdpurr
Alternatively, you can stream the Projector View using live streaming services like YouTube Live, Twitch, Facebook Live, etc. You can stream the entire Projector Window or layer it into your content using free streaming tools like Open Broadcast Software (OBS). This creates a "second screen" configuration where your players follow along with your stream on their desktop, laptop, or actually play using their mobile device or a second window on any of the above devices. We have many customers successfully using this method.
For more details and an example for how to set up the above configuration, check out our blog post Creating Amazing Virtual Events For Your Participants With Crowdpurr which includes a YouTube link with an example of the above.
Absolutely. When you create a new Survivor Trivia Game, we put our Survivor Trivia logo and backgrounds on your game as a default. Our Classroom Plan lets you update the logo of any of your Trivia Games and also change the background to one of our existing backgrounds. You can also upload a custom background on the Projector View and Mobile View if you're a Conference Plan subscriber (or higher). You can also update the URL that the crowd uses to join your game to any custom URL you prefer for your brand, company, or client. The entire game can be customized for your event or company. More information on customizing is available in this article Conference Plan Features Explained
Yes! There's an advanced setting called Allow Eliminated Players To Keep Answering? that you can enable. This makes it so eliminated players can continue playing along while not being able to win. Sometimes it's no fun to get kicked out of the game! You can also disable this setting so players are truly prevented from answering further questions if they answer incorrectly or run out of time (a la HQ).
Yes! There's an advanced setting called Always Show A Winner(s)? that you can enable. This makes it so that at the end of your game if you have no players that answered every question correct, the winners will be displayed as the player(s) who answered the most questions correct. This setting makes it so you don't end up with a game with no survivors or winners. Disabling this setting will cause you to have no winners if no one answered every question correctly.
If a player joins late, they can still play and they won't be eliminated until they answer a question incorrectly. However, they won't be listed as a "Survivor" on the leaderboard unless they answer all questions correctly. So if a player joins late, they cannot be listed as a "Winning Survivor" at the end of the game. Or if you have "Always Show A Winner(s)" turned on, this will show the Winning Survivors as whichever player(s) answered the most questions correctly (in case you didn't have any players that answered every question correct). If a player joins late, they still may be able to fall into that group but they would have to answer the same amount of questions correct as the player(s) who answered the most correct, which is unlikely.
Survivor Trivia is more about inclusion and engagement versus not allowing players to join in on the fun because they were late. But we still want to make sure a late player cannot win.
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 Survivor's List which you can enable on the Projector View and Mobile Views at any time. Our Seminar Plan also offers a feature to auto-generate player names based on fun family-friend word combinations (e.g. SkyDiver19, DaisyFlower4). This eliminates players being able to enter their own nicknames and possibly entering profanity.
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 Survivors List at any time during your game (e.g. after each question, at the end of the game, etc.) to display the real-time live list of all players who are still "Survivors" (i.e. have answered every question correctly and in time) 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(s) are whichever players are still listed on the Survivor's List at the end of your game.
Because Survivor Trivia is a survivor-mode trivia format, players keep playing as long as they answer every question correctly and don't run out of time to answer a question. At the end of your trivia game's questions, your game may have more than one survivor (or winner). If you want to only have one winner, you'll need to add enough questions with sufficient difficulty to eliminate all players down to one remaining survivor. On our Premium Plans, you can add up to 100 questions per Survivor Mode Trivia Game. However, you can also eliminate every player in this process. In this case, you'll have to show the winners as the Survivors from the previous question or state that the game had no single winner.
Survivor Trivia can support teams of players when using Crowdpurr's Basic 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.
Crowdpurr also offers an Advanced Team Mode that allows players to play both individually and as teams and review the performance for both, but this mode only supports Points Mode and Percentage Correct Mode Trivia.
Please see Team Trivia Modes Explained for more information.
Yes! Crowdpurr is designed for you to practice as much as you want in order to learn the platform. We want you to feel comfortable ahead of your actual event. This is why we give you 30 days on every upgrade.
There is no consequence for practice runs. You can practice as much as you want on any Trivia Game. You can play through and easily reset your Trivia Game when finished so it's ready to go for another practice run or your actual event. Resetting simply removes all existing crowd responses, scores, and rankings and puts your Trivia Game in the initial state so it's ready to go again. It does not remove your added questions or answer options. There's no way to "mess up" your Trivia Game by practicing. So go ahead and experiment. If in doubt, reset!

Yes! For Classroom Plan subscribers and higher, users have the ability to use the Question Import Tool to add, edit, and remove questions and answers directly on a CSV file spreadsheet to import directly into the Trivia Game. With this Question Import tool, you can import up to 100 questions at once from a spreadsheet. We recommend starting from our template file to have a general layout to follow, but you can create your own from scratch with your program of choice.
No. Our default Trivia Game 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 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 initially started the question's points-timer.
As a host, you can select multiple correct answers for a Multiple Choice trivia question; however, players can only submit a single answer for each question and will then be awarded as normal for the 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.
Yes, you can create a Projector View window that only shows your Trivia Game's Survivors full-time. Check out the help center article Displaying Only Rankings Leaderboard on Projector View to learn more about advanced Projector View configuration.
