Back in April, all of DoubleDutch converged in Phoenix, AZ for a company offsite meeting, and of course we built out an event app for the affair. We had a lot of business to handle and a lot of learning to do, but we wanted to have some fun while doing it. Luckily for us, our Senior Engineering Manager, Adam, was able to put together a trivia game for the occasion.
After a long morning of discussions and presentations, we all participated in the very first Trivia Challenge over a taco lunch. We all had a blast trying to answer questions about DoubleDutch history as well as some general knowledge trivia. By the end of the first day of the offsite, we were back to playing trivia, this time as a way to review everything that was discussed during the day.
Today we're incredibly excited to bring Trivia Challenge to your events and a little friendly competition to your attendees. Setting up the game is quick and easy. Event organizers start by making a trivia session. Much like the Live Q&A feature, multiple Trivia Challenge sessions can take place at the same time. From there, it's simply adding the trivia questions and their corresponding answers, as well as assigning a time limit to the questions.
When it's time to start the game, organizer can launch the presentation to display on a big screen or projector for attendees to follow along. Then everything is controlled from the Moderator Panel in the CMS. Organizers can control the flow of the game by ending a question early, displaying the leaderboard in between questions or ending the game completely. There's even a preview of the next question to help the moderator know how to introduce the question.
Meanwhile, attendees are viewing and answering questions right from within the event app. To answer a question, attendees simply tap the answer that they think is correct before the timer hits zero. Once the question is over, attendees can see if their answer is correct and how many people selected which answer. When the game is all said and done, the leaderboard is displayed, and attendees can quickly share their results to the activity feed.
Trivia Challenge was definitely a highlight of our company event, and we're confident your attendees will enjoy it as much as we do. If you're ready to have some fun, head over to the Discover More page to install the app and get started!
