To aid with some healthy competition, there is a live scoreboard where all teams can see where they’re positioned after every 4 questions. Players meet their quiz host for an introduction before going to a live, interactive quizzing software where the team leaders will input answers into. Each team will have their own separate Slack channel to discuss and agree on the answers for the team leader to then submit to the software. Each round is made up of 10 questions – which can either be general knowledge or tailored to a specific theme of your choice.
