Below you will find all Frequently Asked Questions for TriviaHub products. If there are additional questions not found in this resource, please follow the Contact Support section to get in-touch with our team.
You can book a trivia event in less than 2 minutes using our online booking tool. Once you have booked your event, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a Zoom link to where your event will take place.
Just send this link in a meeting invite to your guests and join at the event start time where our live host will be waiting to take care of you. That’s it!
Sure – once you open our online booking tool, here’s how it will work:
- Choose event size – you’ll start your booking by choosing the event size that best fits your group based on number of attendees
- Choose date and time – you’ll then choose your preferred date and time for the event. We host events in multiple countries on both weekdays and weekends and can take bookings up to 24-hours before the event starts. Not sure of a final time yet? No worries, we can reschedule up to 48-hours before the event starts.
- Reserve with credit card – Using our secure portal, you’ll reserve your event using your credit card. Your supplied card will be charged 48 hours before the event starts and you can cancel anytime up to that point to avoid charges. You can also choose to pay upfront while booking or receive an invoice.
- Supply your details – You’ll receive a confirmation email with your event’s Zoom link and an in-take form to gather details about your participants to make sure we best prepare the event for your group. If there are any questions, one of our staff will reach out to confirm everything.
- Invite your team – Your event is now all set and all you need to do is send a meeting invite to your team with your supplied Zoom link. Easy peasy!
- Attend event – Your live host will be at the event 15 minutes early, and you and your guests just need to click the Zoom link at the start time and the host will take care of everything for you.
That’s no problem. Just book for the minimum number of expected attendees and we can increase it later.
Here is what you can expect when attending one of our trivia events:
The Zoom room will open 15 minutes early – feel free to join early as well.
We’ll kick-off about 3 minutes after the start time to allow players to join.
The host will walk through some housekeeping items to let teams know how we will play.
We will then get players into their teams (if using breakout rooms). Teams that were pre-assigned will need to rename themselves and if playing with randomized teams, we will run the randomizer and balance teams based on number of total players (target 5 per team).
The host will then provide the game URL and QR Code where teams can submit answers and teams will have a chance to choose their captain.
Only the captain will need to open the game URL and they will be responsible for registering their team and submitting answers for the team.
Once all teams are registered, we will start trivia play. The host will present questions, move teams into breakout rooms (if using) and team captains will submit their team’s answers through the website at the end of each round.
After each round, answers will be reviewed, and scores will be announced.
Final scores will be tallied after the last round. If there is a tie, we will go into an optional tie-breaker round where the tied teams will compete in a numerical question. The team closest to the answer will break the tie and win.
The winning team will be announced along with any included prizes. If necessary, we will gather winning team contact info.
We will wrap-up and wish everyone well!
