The Multiple Choice question type allows your crowd to choose from several answer choices that you write and include along with your question. This question type is supported by both Polls and Trivia Games. We also offer a number of pre-written multiple choice questions for Trivia Games.

Making a New Multiple Choice Question
Multiple Choice questions are our main question type. More Experiences use multiple choice questions than any other question type!
You can add a single blank Multiple Choice question using two methods.
Firstly, you can simply click on the (+) button that's always located to the right of the last question within the set. This will instantly add a new question after the selected question.

Editing Multiple Choice Questions
To edit a Multiple Choice question, click the green Edit (pencil) button in the top right of the question text box.
You can also click the text of the question itself, where it says "(click here to edit)"
This will open a panel with a few options for your question.
Change Question Text
If you'd like to change the question's text, simply click into the text box, type out your question, and click the green Save button with the checkmark icon, or simply press Enter on your keyboard.
To change the order of a question or where it should go, you can use the Question Order option on the far left of the Edit Panel. Click it to open the dropdown selection box, and choose its new numerical position. Click the green Save button with a checkmark on the right after you're done.
You can also do that by dragging and dropping the question tab. However, you can't rearrange questions out of the current group of 10 questions using this method.
You can change the Question Type of the selected question here. Please note that changing question types will erase all answers you have set and you cannot undo this. If you accidentally change the Question Type, you will have to rewrite all of the answers you set for your multiple-choice question, as well as any custom colors, the correct answer, etc.
Double-check which question type you've selected, and click the green Save (checkmark) button to apply it.

You can set how many points an individual question is worth. By default, all trivia questions are set to 100 points. Click the text box and you can type in any number from 1 to 1000. You can make harder questions worth more, put more valuable questions at the end of your Trivia Game, or you can set each question to higher values to make the whole game more competitive!
Setting a New Per-Question Point Value
The new question displays the default Points Value
Enter the new value you want here, then click Save
Presto! Your new value has been applied.
If you'd like to add a little fun to your Trivia Game, you make any trivia question a Points Wager question. With points wagering, your players can choose what they want to wager on the next question. For a question with the Points Wager switch enabled, your players can choose to go all-in, half-in, partially in, or even none at all! The choice is up to them.
Points wager questions make for a great finale or bonus question at the end of your trivia games. For more information on how the new Points Wager feature works, please visit Points Wagering Explained
You can also set a specific Question Timer duration for an individual question. By default, all questions are set to 15 seconds. Like setting an individual question's Point Value, you can use this customization to make harder questions by reducing its Question Timer or even using a higher Point Value in conjunction with a faster timer to make the game more competitive.
To set a specific question's timer, click the text box and select your preferred duration using the dropdown boxes. For instance, you can set a specific question's timer as short as 10 seconds or as long as 60 minutes!

Copy Answer Colors
Did you know you can change the colors on the answer buttons? You can find out how to do that here:
The Copy Answer Colors button will apply this question's Answer Color scheme to every question in your Experience. You'll get a notification in the top right corner confirming it, and if you go to your other questions, they will have the new color scheme applied.
The Clone Question button copies over everything in your question to a new question, and places that new one right after the current one in the order.
If you made an extra question by mistake, don't like a pre-made question from our categories, or just want to get rid of a question for any reason, click the red Remove (trash) button.
