  1. For the anti-cheating thing, answer speed is your best bet. A game where answering quickly gives you more points will cause anyone googling the answers to come in pretty low in the rankings.

  2. I'm running a free show on Zoom tomorrow night, 12/1, at 9pm ET / 6pm ET. It's not the usual trivia night; I run three different games back to back, changing them up every show. This week's games are:

  3. Thats awesome! Do you photoshop the masks and makeup yourself or do you just find pictures?

  4. I find them; and they have to be real and at least semi-recognizable images. For example:

  5. I'm running a free show on Zoom tomorrow night, 11/17, at 9pm ET / 6pm ET. It's not the usual trivia night; I run three different games back to back, changing them up every show. This week's games are:

  6. My show is a trivia + puzzle + comedy show. The first two parts change every week, but the third round is always a comedy game, where people submit funny answers to questions and I read them aloud, then people vote on answers without knowing who wrote them.

  7. Thanks for the quick reply! With the phones / tablets, cheating is a small concern but my goal is to try and promote socialization and less about heads in phones. A slippery slope once phones are pulled out for 1-2 rounds.

  8. Are you doing team play? I've seen hosts using my platform have a "only the team captain can have a phone out" rule, which discourages cheating and encourages socialization while still allowing all the advantages of a digital system.

  9. Ahh, yes, that could work! Yes, team play. Only other thing I could think of is having a laminated sleeve or two that you could print out 1-2 copies and pass it around. Time then becomes an issue.

  10. Yeah, #7 was one of the harder ones when I ran this at my show! Only a few people got that one.

  11. I once ran a Christmas bingo game where I a line from a Christmas song, and players had to find the name of the song on their bingo board. That worked quite well. And it's an easy 25+ questions to write, too.

  12. My system, gameshow.host, can do that. It's not free, but it's charged by player, not by month, so you don't have to sign up for an annual plan like Kahoot forces you to do. I support lots of different game types, including speed-based trivia similar to Kahoot.

  13. My platform, gameshow.host, can do that. Players connect on their phones, there's a display screen you can put on a TV / projector / screen share, and the host controls everything from their PC / tablet. It's not a free system but it can do a lot.

  14. For kids that age I think some multiple choice or true/false works decently. Also, throw some softies in there to make them feel good. 10 year olds would know things like…Which ocean borders the Western United States?

  15. That's a good idea! I have a good true/false game setup that's fun. I run it with adults sometimes with a bunch of absurd facts / lies, and it's a fun game.

  16. I run live trivia / game show nights, and license my game platform to other hosts.

  18. The best option is really to eliminate them if you can. If you're interested, I built a software platform that automates practically everything, including scoring and live scoreboards. You're not limited to simple stuff either; you can do long-form questions, wagering, point gambling, picture/video/audio rounds, and all kinds of other gimmicks that make pub style trivia fun. DM me if you're interested.

  19. Basecamp open-sources their policies and encourages others to copy them. There's some GDPR stuff in there.

  20. Nice work! Are you capping customer acquisition intentionally? Sounds like you are super customer oriented - I like that.

  21. Not "capping" just not aggressively seeking new customers, and I'm relatively low profile so I don't have people banging at the door either.

  22. Do you want to sell art you've already made, or create new art on request?

  24. I like the video clip idea; however, my bar doesn’t have the ability for me to connect with the TVs unfortunately
