How a BreakoutIQ Company Trivia Activity Works

BreakoutIQ Offers The Best Trivia For Corporate Teams!

With fast-paced questions to test your brain and fun rounds to keep people engaged, BreakoutIQ’s approach to trivia keeps all the fun stuff about trivia while getting rid of the obscure and mundane. By using rounds that involve problem solving rather than random facts, teammates can pingpong ideas off of each other, giving everyone a chance to contribute. Less pressure + more teamwork = more fun.

How do we achieve this? I’m glad you asked.

1. Easy as 1.2.3

Setup is a breeze. Our hosts will come to you wherever and whenever you need a break in your day.

In about 10 min, our hosts will be hooked up to your A/V system or set up one that we provide. Just like that we’re ready to get into teams.

Start thinking of your team name now, because we’re ready to go!

Building Trivia For Your Team

2. Let’s Get Acquainted

We’ll start the game with a lighthearted round to ease into things. A fun round is a great introduction to the game and to your teammates. Acquainting your team with our style of trivia prepares you for more complicated rounds. It also eases your team into talking with each other, and quickly getting comfortable trading ideas, which will be necessary as the rounds get more difficult.

Let’s Start Simple:
According to Urban Dictionary,
What is the reason why one sock disappears when you do your laundry?
A. Burglar B. Quantum Theory C. Paranoia?
Only your team can decide.

3. A Bit More Puzzling

As the game continues, the rounds get more complex with bonus points available at every turn. Problem-based rounds spark spirited debates. Because everyone thinks in a unique way, different perspectives make a team stronger in TrivIQ. Diversity in a team is celebrated as the strongest teams are the ones who think outside the box.

Scenario Questions: There’s one big problem and many different ways to the answer.

You’ve crash landed on the moon. You have 16 supplies, but can only take 8.
Obviously, you should take water- but where does it rank in order of importance in comparison to the map of the moon?

NASA knows- does your team?

List Questions: Many different answers, but what are the most popular?

We know the top 30 recipes people Googled in 2018. What makes the list? Is it something as simple as eggs? Or should you choose something more trendy, like quinoa? What seems like a straightforward question is actually more complex.

Can you use the search engine in your brain to pick the top 10 most Googled?

4. Office Culture

The personality of your company is an integral part of TrivIQ. By using rounds that are rooted in the unique makeup of your team members, the game becomes grounded in what you encounter everyday. Superlative style questions can celebrate the most adventurous person or bring to light office jokes. These rounds tend to be favorites as they produce the most creative and hilarious answers.

We’ve Split Up Your Team But You All Still Must Be of One Mind.

Do you know your teammates well enough to award superlatives to the group? Only matching answers will be awarded points!

5. Let’s Make It Personal

By sprinkling in a little bit about you, teams are more engaged and feel more connected to the material in a fun way.

7. So How Does It All Go Down?

Our TrivIQ is designed to be fast paced and fun. We’ve eliminated the constant waiting for hosts to ask question after question. Our hosts present each round, take questions, and then set the timer. After that, it’s up to you—five minutes on the clock! With the provided worksheet, your team tackles the problem at hand.

Once time’s up, worksheets are collected and the answers are revealed. Then it’s onto the next round. We don’t make you pause while we score.

As you work on the next round, our hosts grade, providing a seamless experience. We provide updates as the game goes so you have a sense of the standings, but there’s no waiting on us—this game is about you.

With winners announced, and celebration commencing, we snap a quick group photo and you are on your way.
