Due to phenomenal demand we are having to cease accepting new SpeedQuizzing Live customers for a few days to allow us to concentrate all our efforts on supporting our existing customers. If you email firstname.lastname@example.org with your details we should have a great new solution in place for new customers within the week. Many thanks.
SpeedQuizzing goes web-based during the ban on large gatherings.
Until recently our flagship SpeedQuizzing product was played in 1400 pubs and bars weekly over a Local Area Connection with players competing using our Android and Apple SpeedQuizzing apps. SpeedQuizzing has established itself as the global market leader for Pub Quizzes and Trivia Events over the past ten years. However with the current ban on large gatherings, our main product has temporarily become a little bit redundant.
Therefore what we have here (SpeedQuizzing Live) is a temporary, makeshift web based replacement. It’s not as slick as SpeedQuizzing, it doesn’t work on Apple IOS yet. But considering we created this in less than a week in response to the current global situation, we think it’s pretty impressive. It is a work in progress, and we will continue to improve it until a time we can all go back to quizzing where God intended. Down the pub.
Tell us about SpeedQuizzing Live
How much does it cost me to host SpeedQuizzing Live (the makeshift, web based version of SpeedQuizzing?) Free for existing SpeedQuizzing customers for a limited time.
Really? Yes, awesome aren’t we!! You will need to pay the full price of a SpeedQuizzing activation if you require a brand new quiz pack (60 questions). But if you want to reuse old Quizpacks or write your own new question rounds in the SpeedQuizzing Question Manager. Then it’s Free for now!!
But I’m not an existing SpeedQuizzing customer. We are working on a paying solution for new customers and ope to have something you can use within the week. If you email email@example.com with your details we should have a great new solution in place for you within the week. Many thanks.
What Quiz Content can I use? At the moment only quiz content from your Question Manager. This includes all purchased SpeedQuizzing quiz packs as well as any content you’ve created/compiled yourself in your Question Manager.
How many teams/players can connect? We don’t really know! We’ve had over 100 devices connected and we had to scroll up and down to see all the team names. However many of the success stories we’ve been hearing have been for people using it with smaller groups playing.
How do players in their homes hear me reading out the questions? That’s up to you but we recommend you host a meeting or webinar on the Zoom conferencing platform. Don’t use streaming platforms such as FB Live or Twitcher as they have too much latency (lag) to host a real time quiz.
Why isn’t the app on the app stores? Because we only created it a week ago and it can be a long process getting an app on the stores. Especially Apple. But we are working on this.
Instructions (For existing hosts)
Familiarise yourself with how to host a Zoom meeting as this is how you will communicate with players.
