Trivia

What You Need to Know

  • Live Trivia on Zoom
    • Registration is required for this event. Upon registration, the system will send you an email with the link to the Zoom meeting.
    • Please designate one person to register your entire team, rather than having your team members register individually.
    • If you are registering your team, input the total number of people on your team (including yourself!) when you are prompted to input the total number of people attending at the start of registration.
    • For the event itself, we will be reading the questions on Zoom and taking answers through Crowdpurr.
    • You may want to use one device for inputting answers on Crowdpurr and a different device to run the Zoom event. For inputting answers, we recommend using whatever device is easiest for you to type on.
    • Additional information about gameplay will be shared at the event.
    • The form will ask for your email address—this is only so that we can contact you about prizes. We never share your information with third parties.
  • Online Trivia
    • Each round has a separate link.
    • You can play by yourself or play as a team.
    • You can complete the rounds in whatever order you want at whatever pace you want, but please use the same name across all rounds so that we can accurately total your score.
    • You will have 25 seconds to answer each question. We recommend using whatever device you type the fastest on.
    • There are NO repeats.
    • Spelling counts—temporarily. While we can (and do) put in alternate answers for each question (e.g. Lyndon Johnson and Lyndon B. Johnson), we can't anticipate every potential misspelling or typo. However, we do go through all the answers and correct any answers that may have been incorrectly scored due to a spelling or input error. So if you put in a correct answer that is marked incorrect, don't panic—you'll receive full credit.
    • Refreshing the page will not kick you out of the game.
    • The form will ask for your email address—this is only so that we can contact you about prizes. We never share your information with third parties.
    • Trivia will be available for a designated period of time; winners will be announced by 6pm on the day that Trivia concludes. We'll post winners on this page as well as on our Facebook and Instagram (follow us: we're fun!).
    • We want to hear from you! If you have suggestions, category ideas, or other Trivia thoughts, please send Martha an email. This is a new endeavor for us, so hearing what works and what doesn't work is extremely helpful.
