How the evening works
 
Getting Ready
 
  1. All player locations start the evening by signing into Zoom.  Your team can play in any combination of 1 to 8 locations of your choice.  NOTE: You will be asked for an email address for each location well before the event.
  2. IMPORTANT: Please ensure each player computer has Zoom downloaded and saved on their computer (go to https://zoom.us/support/download to accomplish this). If any are unfamiliar with the program, we suggest they try it out well before the evening with the on-line tutorials this one is good
  3. You will be receiving an email well before the event requesting detailed Team information. Please send the following details:
    1. Team Captain Name and email address
    2. Team Name (can be simple like Sandi's Team)
    3. All team member’s names - for our prize wheel
    4. Email addresses of the locations that your players are playing from (i.e. if two playing out of one location, only one email address is required) so we can send everyone the link.
  4. The main Zoom link for the event will be provided to each computer location/ email address that you specify..
  5. Assign one of your computer locations/players as the one to supply your Final Answers each round. Please make sure that player is familiar with the “Chat” function on Zoom. A link in The Chat Box will be used to provide a link to each rounds question answer sheet. NOTE: The answer sheet also includes a full list of all the rounds questions each round so you can discuss them further at your leisure (no need to write the questions down as they are asked).
IMPORTANT: Please ensure the answer computer has Google Document downloaded and saved on their computer (go to https://google-docs.en.softonic.com/ to accomplish this). The computer will need to be signed in using their Google password. This program is used to power the answer sheet.
 
The Trivia Evening Itself
 
NOTE: Trivia Log-In Starts at 6:30 pm. We put you in your break out room at 6:45
Trivia will begin at 7:00 pm sharp
 
  1. As you log on, each location will be placed in a Zoom a waiting room for your on-line security. Please be patient as the Event Host will bring you into the main Zoom event one by one.
  2. The Questions will be asked using a PowerPoint presentation with all players muted by the Event Host.
  3. Each round, the Event Host will send all of your team computer locations into your own special Team “Breakout Room”. Here you can all unmute and discuss the questions and finalize your answers. The easiest way for all to see the questions again is for the designated answer computer to put the answer sheet up on the screen and hit “Screen Share” on Zoom (normally at the bottom of the screen). All computer screens for your team should then see the answer sheet. However, only the designated answer computer will be able to fill in the answers and submit the sheet!
  4. NOTE: Spelling is important as the answers are checked automatically. However, we do have a team of markers that will be rechecking your answers.
  5. If you have problems at all when you are in the breakout room and need assistance, look for the Help Button to contact the Zoom host.
Ideas to make the Evening a more Enjoyable Experience
 
  1. When playing with more than one player at a location-hook up your computer to your television using an HDMI cable
  2. NOTE: It is hard to play on phones and tablets due to their smaller screens.
