FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - VIRTUAL SHOWS
How do the virtual shows work?
Mack Flash operates via YouTube for virtual shows. A private, unlisted link is prepared, which you can share with your participants. They can use that link to watch the live quiz show on whatever device they decide (Smart TV, computer, laptop, their smartphone, etc.)
Is there a maximum number of players?
The is no limit to how many people can play. BUT there can be a surcharge if you have over 100 players using the “submit your answers” format because the host will need assistance marking (or else the event will take a really long time).
Can people talk to each other during virtual shows?
YES! Not only are you encouraged to form virtual teams using your preferred video conference application (Zoom, Messenger, Teams, etc.) there is also a Live Chat in YouTube which allows everyone to interact. This is recommended for the full experience (just don’t write your answers in the chat!)
What do you mean by "Play-along" trivia?
“Play-along” Trivia is a term for games where players simply write down their answers at home. When the correct answers are revealed at the end of the round, players mark their own answer sheets and share their score with everyone in the chat, should they want to. Call it the “honour system” method of playing. This is preferable when there are no “performance prizes” (i.e. for the winning teams) but works great with “door prizes” (i.e. randomly drawn).
In the "Submit Answers" option, how do players submit answers?
Mack Flash uses www.triviarat.com as a method to collect and mark answers. One player per team, on a secondary device (e.g. smartphone, laptop, etc.) logs in, enters a team name, and submits answers when prompted. Their answers are reviewed after each round, and ongoing scores are shown on their device as well as announced by the host throughout the game.
Can we do raffles/door prizes and/or prizes for the winners?
Most definitely! Arrangements need to be made in advance to provide the necessary information (e.g. list of prizes, list of participants, predetermined list of prize winners, etc.) but we can even pull up a wheel on screen with everyone’s names to do random draws!
