Crowdpurr allows your audience to play trivia together as teams! Using the various modes explained below, your teams can be altogether at the same table at an event or spread far and wide across the globe.
By default, Crowdpurr sets all Trivia Games to Individual Mode. Crowdpurr assumes that a Trivia Game will be played by individual players on their mobile devices competing against one another. Each player that joins the game is asked for their nickname so they can be displayed on the Live Player Rankings on the Projector View. All players are ranked individually on the Rankings Leaderboard.
Basic Team Mode
When Basic Team Mode is selected, your Trivia Game will assume players are playing as a team physically grouped together at an event. For example, people grouped together at a table. Each Team (or Table) chooses one team-leader to actually use their mobile-device to play and answer questions. This individual enters a 'Team Name' on behalf of their team and answers on behalf of their team. The Live Rankings then shows the rankings of all teams rather than individuals. In this mode, only one actual person uses their mobile-device on behalf of the team. The other teammates must work with the team leader to submit an answer on behalf of the team. In this mode each team only counts as one participant in your Trivia Game. So you may be able to purchase a smaller plan that has a lower maximum participant-limit because you will have less participants.
Advanced Team Mode
When Advanced Team Mode is selected, you, as the host of the trivia game will enter all available teams ahead of your event. Then every player joins the game using their mobile device and enters their individual name and also must select a team to join from the pre-populated list of teams that the host assembled (e.g. "London Office", "New York Office", etc.). Players then compete individually and as a team. Members of the same team do not need to be physically near each other because each player is also playing individually. Players will be ranked on both their individual performance and their performance as a team. Team performance is based on the average performance per player on the team. So it isn't important if one team has more players than another.
