Once you’ve started a live game, the first question will show on your screen. You can level-up the energy and excitement by commentating: reading aloud questions, elaborating on or discussing answer results, celebrating changes on the leaderboard, and congratulating players who make it on the podium.
After everyone has submitted an answer or the timer runs out, results will appear showing how many chose a correct answer and/or how many chose each option. This screen offers a great “campfire moment” opportunity where everyone is eagerly looking forward and you can step in front to grab their attention. For example, you can elaborate on why particular answers were right or wrong, or ask for feedback on why people selected certain answers.
Next will be a top five leaderboard. Add a bit more flare by commenting on who’s on the leaderboard, or when someone new makes it onto the leaderboard. Occasionally, there will also be celebratory messages on screen about a certain number of players on an answer streak or of someone who’s moved up three or more places. These will help give you achievements to commend your audience about whether they’re among the top 5 or not.
At the end of the game will be a podium. Every player’s screen will show their place and final score. Players who are on the podium will have have a medal on their screen. If you planned on awarding prizes to top scorers, you can ask players to show you their screen as confirmation.
At the bottom of the podium screen, click “Get feedback” to send out a short survey asking how players enjoyed your game. Their data will be aggregated together and made available in your game report.
After you click “Get feedback”, you can click “Play again” to restart your game with ghosts. Ghosts are simulations of your players. They can join this new session and try to beat their prior scores.
