Virtual Game Instructions 

September 11, 2020 – 5:00pm PT

* Anyone who bought more than one ticket: please forward these instructions to the other players you bought tickets for — otherwise they won’t know how to log on.

Before the event…

Each team choses a captain; they’ll be responsible for inputting the answers into our digital answer system. They also coordinate how the team will communicate among themselves during the game (via whichever method they’re most comfortable with: group text, Facebook Messenger, Google Hangout, Skype, Slack, Discord, etc.) if not in the same household. And they lead their team in coming up with a team name.

How do I see/hear the host and the questions?

Well before the game, every participant (not just each team) has to Download Zoom. Click here if you don’t already have it. (If two players are physically in the same place, they can use Zoom on the same computer, as long as they’re on the same team.) It’s best to make sure you’ve downloaded it well in advance of game time.

Game time…

Each player clicks on this Zoom link:

Having technical trouble that we can help with? Write to us via Zoom’s chat window and we’ll do our best to assist.

How do I submit my answers?

About 10–15 minutes before game time, each team captain goes to PlayBigQuiz.com (on any Web browser) where they enter the team name (denoted as “Team Name”) and our Event Key, which is…


After your team has decided on an answer to each question, enter the answer into our system, then wait till the end of the round to submit your responses digitally. DO NOT SUBMIT TILL THE END OF THE ROUND!

Remember that only the team captain needs to log into our answer system.

What else?

Use Zoom’s chat function to ask for help from BQT Headquarters, which is standing by to assist. You can also use the chat to request question repeats, make jokes, talk smack, etc.—but do not post answers there!

Have fun!
