WHAT IS SPEEDQUIZZING
SpeedQuizzing is an interactive quiz game played on smartphones and tablets.
Players take part in the same way they would a pen and paper quiz, but instead of pens and paper, a smartphone or a tablet with the free SpeedQuizzing app installed on it to answer the questions. Only one device is needed per team and our recommendation is for team sizes to be a maximum of 4 or 6 depending on venue size so that players can get round the device.
HOW IS SPEEDQUIZZING DIFFERENT TO A TRADITIONAL TRIVIA QUIZ?
Rather than having an unspecified amount of time to decide on an answer, teams are given a time-limit of 10 seconds after the question as been read, during which they input an answer using the keypad on their devices screen. This gives players considerably less time to attempt to cheat!
Answers are submitted by a single tap on the device screen, i.e. first letter of the answer, or multiple-choice (A.B.C.D etc).
The answer is revealed after each question, rather than all together at the end of a round or the entire quiz.
Scoring is taken care of automatically by the computer, with the leader-board being accessible throughout the event.
SpeedQuizzing uses sound effects which are played through the sound system to create an upbeat lively atmosphere, more in keeping with a TV gameshow than a pen and paper quiz.
