By now you've probably heard of the global trivia phenomenon that is HQ Trivia? It's a wildly popular trivia gameshow app for iOS and Android.  To win, players must answer every trivia question correct or face elimination. Wouldn't it be cool if you could create your own HQ Trivia for your live or virtual events!? Now you can with Crowdpurr's Survivor Trivia.

How Does HQ Trivia Work?

HQ Trivia is a weekly live trivia game show app that allows players to sign in at 6PM to win cash and prizes. To win, players simply choose the correct answer out of three possible multiple-choice options without making a mistake.  Each question a player answers correctly advances the player one step further to the daily grand prize. Choose the wrong answer... you're out! Sounds easy enough right? Wrong.  Because HQ Trivia gives away tens of thousands of dollars away, there are thousands of players vying for that cool hard cash.  As the game progresses, the questions get increasingly harder.

Winning is fairly elusive for most players.  But the players who do end up somehow winning tend to have a joy-included meltdown.

Introducing Survivor Trivia

"When is the HQ-style survivor format coming to Crowdpurr trivia? I want to do this at my event!"

After hearing about HQ Trivia, savvy Crowdpurr customers started asking if we could release a similar survivor trivia game format.  That day is here. You can now create your own HQ Trivia for your live event. Introducing Survivor Trivia!

When a player answers incorrectly… elimination!

We’ve created a new elimination format of trivia that you can use to impress your crowd at your next live event.

Instead of your players worrying about earning points to climb the rankings leaderboard, they must now answer each question correctly to advance. Or else… be eliminated!

At the end of the game, Crowdpurr reveals a Survivor List that displays all players who answered every question correctly!

Survivor Trivia also works with our 100% original free weekly-updated trivia database as well. So it’s super-easy to add content and get going!

More Event-Friendly Features Than HQ Trivia

We know corporate live events at Crowdpurr so we're well-aware that being eliminated is no fun.  Often corporate and educational events focus on inclusion and content-exposure, not just winning.  Therefore, we've added some "twists" on the Survivor Trivia format to make the experience more enjoyable for your participants.

Eliminated Players Keep Playing

This feature allows any players who get eliminated to keep playing and answering trivia questions. Including knowing if they answer future questions correctly or incorrectly.  When a player is eliminated in HQ Trivia they're free to continue watching the host but they're unable to keep playing.  Because of this, your event's participants remain in the game and following along with your content.

Always Show A Winner

This feature makes sure there is always a winner at your trivia event. Sometimes in elimination-style trivia every player may get eliminated if no one answers every question correct.  For example, if you create a ten-question trivia game and no one answers all ten questions correctly, guess what... you don't have a winner.  This feature displays the winner(s) as whichever group of players answers the most questions correctly.  Another event-friendly twist to improve your application of Survivor Trivia at your live event.

Adding A Live-Streaming Video Host

One of the staples of HQ Trivia is its live-streaming video host who cracks jokes and keeps the game lively and moving.  You too can add your own real-time streaming live host using Crowdpurr's live streaming.

It's easy to get up and running with Crowdpurr's real-time streaming. In just a few clicks you can get up and running and stream right from the Experience Dashboard.
