Create Your Holiday Trivia Game in Crowdpurr
Step 1: Create Your Free Crowdpurr Account
Visit the Crowdpurr website and sign up for a free account. You can create a trivia game for up to twenty participants for free! If you'll have more participants, you'll need to upgrade your plan later before your event.
Step 2: Build Your Trivia Game
Once your account is created, create a new Countdown Trivia game using our 100% original trivia library. You can choose from existing holiday-themed questions and games or create your own. Remember to keep your audience in mind and select questions that are fun yet challenging.
Step 3: Rehearse Your Event
Before the party, do a trial run to ensure everything works smoothly. With Crowdpurr, you're free to dry run your event as many times as you want. You can test your trivia game with your own device or desktop web browser, or invite a few friends or co-workers to test the game. You're now ready to run a trial of your trivia game.
Each time you complete the trivia game, simply reset it to start fresh again. Also check how you will deliver your trivia game. If doing an in-person game and displaying the optional Presentation View, be sure to check connections to your laptop computer. If sharing via Zoom, for example, in a virtual meeting, be sure to test sharing your screen and the Presentation View.
Step 4: Invite Your Participants
Whether you use email, SMS texts, printed signs, Facebook, or word-of-mouth, your players need to know when your holiday party is happening. In your invite, include instructions on how to join the Crowdpurr game and any necessary links or codes. If attending in-person, players can easily join by scanning the Presentation View's QR code on their device. If joining remotely, players will need to know the URL and experience code of your trivia game (e.g. crowd.live/12345). You can include the link in an email, Facebook event, etc. It's also fun to announce any prizes you may add to your event. We suggest rewarding the top three players with prizes to increase participation and engagement! It's the holidays after... trivia Santa needs to bring a few gifts.
Step 5: Host Your Party
On the day of the party, it's okay to be nervous. After all, you're doing a live event. Don't worry, Crowdpurr's rock solid platform will not let you down. If you're practiced a few times, you should be comfortable with the Experience Dashboard and running your trivia game.
When it's time to play your trivia game, make an announcement and start the trivia game's countdown timer. Using a countdown timer of a few minutes builds anticipation and gives your participants time to get signed in on their devices. Once the countdown ends your trivia game starts. If you're using Host Controlled Mode, you will drive the progress of your trivia game. If using Fully Automatic Mode, you can kick back and watch the fun!
You can now watch as your participants scratch and claw their way to the top of the leaderboard for prizes and bragging rights! All while having a great time on your behalf.
