How Does HIP Trivia Work?
Join The Meeting
The “home” for your event is an online meeting. When we set the meeting up for you, we usually use Zoom but if your group or company uses Skype, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, etc… we can work with those as well.
All of the players get an email with the meeting link that they then join.
Login With Your Phone
While you “watch” the meeting on your computer, you “play” on your phone. You can also use a tablet or even another computer. Think of this second device as your “answer button”. You use your phone/tablet to actually answer the questions you see in the meeting.
Answer Questions and Have Fun!
The questions will be read out loud and you use your phone or tablet to answer. It’s that simple.
We’ll show you the leaderboard every few questions so you can see how you are doing.
Normally for us, it’s the other way around. We ask the questions and hopefully, you have the answers and win. Since you haven’t hired us yet, we’ll do it the other way around. These are a few of the questions that we receive most often.
As many or as few as you’d like.
Generally, we recommend that prizes be given to at least the top 3 players or teams. After that, we have lots of options. We can give prizes to each round winner. Prizes can be randomly awarded to players via the “Wheel of Fun”. We can find a way to give away as many prizes as you can come up with.
Total side note:
We did an event for a company this past Christmas season where they had tables and tables of really great prizes for their employees to choose from. The table that won trivia had their first pick of prizes. Second place table went next. Etc. It was really fun to watch and made for a real competitive trivia game!
Of course. Our presentation is fully customizable.
Most prefer that WE set up the meeting and then that link is sent out to attendees but we absolutely do NOT have to do it that way. Some groups want us to part of an existing meeting where we are only on for a small portion of the full meeting. Some groups need to use a specific service due to the security policy of their company. We just need to be invited to the meeting that you set up. We haven’t yet found an online meeting software that we can’t work with. (We usually do a run-through test about a week in advance to make sure everything is working as it should)
The simple answer is, yes, you can. You can write the questions, set up some kind of PowerPoint display to “share” your screen. Then maybe set up some kind of google spreadsheet to collect the answers. Then you’ll have to score the answers and then make some other kind of spreadsheet to display a scoreboard. Oh, you’ll have to do all of this while trying to HOST the event as well.
Or… you can hire us. We’ve done hundreds of trivia events and we are pretty good at it, if we do say so ourselves. :-). You can sit back, relax, and even play the game!
Our software is, quite simply, amazing. It’s cutting-edge tech that even the nerdiest in your group would be jealous of. Your contestants can be ANYWHERE in the world and play.
We write all of our own questions. We don’t take lists off of the internet or buy old question lists from 2003 that you can find on the internet. Since we write the questions, we can write questions for anything you want!
- You could do a product quiz for your salespeople.
- You could do a company history quiz.
- Do you like the color purple? We can do entire categories about the color purple!
It’s completely up to you.
Most likely, yes.
When we set up our meetings, we use Zoom but we’ve tested with all of the big virtual meeting software and have had no problems.
The technical details are uber-geeky and involve lots of big words that most of us here at HIP Trivia don’t understand. We leave that stuff to the geeks in the back.
The very basic explanation of playing the game is this: We (or you) set up an online meeting using our (or your) virtual meeting software. The attendees come to that meeting to “watch”. To “play”, they will use their mobile phones to answer the questions they see on the screen. Kind of like you do at Buffalo Wild Wings.
Probably. But we are a bit biased. :-)
HIP Trivia is a way to take a virtual meeting and make it VERY interactive. We MOSTLY do online fundraiser “trivia nights” and corporate virtual events but, we’ve also done private parties, trivia leagues, store promotional events… you name it. Any online meeting that you want to let your attendees be involved in, HIP Trivia is perfect for.
Though these are the “common” questions that we receive, we know that most questions are not common. So please feel free to fill out the form to the right, give us a bit of info about your event, and ask your specific questions there.
Let’s make your event GREAT!
The best way to see if HIP Trivia is the right solution for your group is to let us show you what we can do. We’d be more than happy to put together a small, customized demo for your decision-makers. Just give us a bit of info and we will be happy to answer any of your questions.
We are also happy to answer any of your questions. Please fill out the form below and we will get back to you in less than one business day.
(We know…we know… you just want to know a price. We get it. In all honesty, there are way too many variables in putting together a package for your group to come up with a simple “price”. Some groups will need more resources than others. Some will require more customization. Some will have different technical needs. We don’t want to give you a price quote that will include things you don’t need or exclude things you do need. I promise you this… we do NOT have a high-pressure sales approach and we love working with all different sized groups and can almost certainly find a way to fit our offerings into your budget)
