Quizzes are no fun when they are weighted in favour of the person Googling the answers using a smartphone under the table! That’s why I’m pioneering “Touch Screen Trivia” – The interactive quiz with a touchscreen twist!
To start, one guest from each team downloads a free application to their smartphone or tablet to play the game. If the team don’t have a device then we can usually provide one so that everybody is able to get involved.
It’s so simple to get started, just choose a name for your team followed by a buzzer sound and wait for the quizmaster ask the first question.
All questions are general knowledge and pictures based and are answered by touching either the first letter of the answer, ABCDE or F for multiple choice or by keying in a numerical answer using the number keypad. A fastest finger first buzzin round is also available for quick-fire answers.
Points are awarded to the teams that answer correctly first meaning that there is no time to cheat by Googling the answer.
