You gather your 3 or 4 friends who are experts in different subject areas so you know all questions will be covered.
(I mean, for sure someone has to know pop culture, some Harry Potter references, sports, geography and can’t forget random facts about animals.)
But NOWADAYS - more often than not, you play alone online because the concept of talking in a team when there’s other people around hasn’t been possible on Zoom or Hangouts. I’ve played Trivia online on Zoom before but it was a lot of DM’ing the host and not so much working together in a team which I miss the most.
And that is one of the reasons why we came out with the concept of Private Tables on Rally!
Each table on Rally can be toggled between Public and Private. Public tables can be heard in the background as part of the background sound and is open for anyone to join the table.
When it’s Private, no one can join or hear you which makes it perfect for trivia!
Gather your friends up this week to try out trivia on Rally! There’s a couple different ways to do this but here’s the one we came up with:
Create a Google Doc that’s shareable with everyone that has 3 questions: 1) Team Name 2) Question Number 3) Answer.
Link this Google Doc in the Room Action URL when you’re editing your room in the venue
Once everyone is in the room, split everyone up into groups of 3 or 4 (or use our Shuffle feature to mix everyone up randomly).
As the Game Master (you as a host!), you can go on stage to ask the trivia questions while everyone else stays in their respective tables.
Have everyone lock the table so no one else can hear them and make sure they have the Google Doc open to submit the answer.
Then ask away! Questions can be a song snippet, movie snippet, worded question, a poster - basically anything you want and make sure teams only have 30 seconds to submit their answer in the form. (Here’s an article of funny trivia questions!)
Each answer is recorded in an excel and at the end of the trivia, you can just filter through the team names and questions to see who had the highest number of right answers!
Another way to do this would be with charades!!! Can you act out a movie? Or famous character? Get creative with the questions!!
