Trivia for Remote Teams


Trivia based remote team building activities!

A One Of A Kind Trivia Experience For Remote Teams

With people working remotely or in hybrid teams, it can be very difficult to find a team building exercise that everyone can participate in. While virtual watercooler chats are nice, simply talking to each other or sharing things via video chat doesn’t do much in the way of helping your team build skills. That’s where our virtual trivia events come in. Virtual team trivia gives your remote and hybrid employees the chance to work together and put their knowledge of trivia to the test. 

Our virtual trivia can be played completely from home or the office, via popular video conferencing platforms like Zoom, and every game is private. You have full control over the guest list. Our hosts will organize your employees into teams and handle all of the questions and scoring, so there’s no extra work to be done. It’s fun, it’s easy, and it’s a great way to bring together remote employees who are scattered across the state, country, or even the globe.

If you’re dealing with the added complexity of a hybrid team setup, where some employees are remote and others are in the office, we’ve got you covered. Click here to learn how our hybrid team building events work.

How do you make virtual trivia fun? By letting the experts at BreakoutIQ handle the hard part!

Our online team trivia games are more than just an online version of trivia—we’ve crafted these experiences from the ground-up as a team building exercise for distributed teams. We’ve built our games to handle up to 600 people at once. They will then be placed into small groups, each with its own private room, to play the game and work together to solve the puzzles or answer questions. Once the round is done, all of the small teams are brought back together to see the scores. 

You don’t have to do anything for our virtual trivia games. Just invite your team members to the online meeting and let us handle the rest. Since no one in your company has to write the questions or host the event, everyone can play and enjoy themselves. We offer a variety of game topics, plus we can create custom games related to any topic you want.

 

What are the benefits of virtual trivia with BreakoutIQ?

Virtual trivia provides a number of benefits. Your team gets to know each other a little better and interact outside of work. They also learn fun facts about whatever topic you have selected. 

In addition to our standard online trivia games, we also offer customized games. These games can be focused on any topic you give us. There are several reasons why this can be a better option for your team. You can create questions about your employees to help them get to know each other better. You can have us create questions limited to a specific area, pop culture related to your city, or even questions related to your industry. This can make the experience more fun than generic trivia, and it makes the whole game feel more personal to

"This is not your typical trivia game where you need random knowledge. It’s something that everyone can participate in...I was on the team who came in last place and I still had so much fun with my team! We all had such a great time!"


- Arlene, Google

"We used BreakoutIQ Trivia for our work team during the pandemic! It was a great event! Our host Dean was amazing, and totally deserves a drink on us for being a superb trivia master. It was a great experience to collaborate as a team for fun."


- Andrew, Amazon

"The event itself was SO MUCH FUN!! My team (who can tend to be on the introverted side) had a blast and the trivia game really helped push them out of their comfort zone and also get to know one another better.”


- Nicole, Facebook

“We had a fun virtual team activity that everyone could easily participate in. I was pleased that nobody on the team needed any special knowledge to participate. The puzzles were fun to solve together. By the end of the hour, we were all talking and laughing. Our host, Varun, was enthusiastic, kept the energy going, and the fun quotient high! Definitely recommend.”


- Mylene, Kaiser Permanente

“BreakoutIQ never disappoints! The team loved the Trivia as it was engaging and gave them an opportunity to collaborate and work together as a team. Thank you Dean for making it so fun and engaging.”


- Vanessa, Robinhood

FAQs


+ Booking Process

+How far in advance do I need to book?

You can check our real time availability in the “Book Now” widget. If your desired time isn’t available, please schedule time with our event coordinators and we’ll see what we can do

+How does the event get scheduled?

Once you complete your booking above, you’ll automatically receive a confirmation with all of the details that you need for the event! We’ll provide a unique Zoom meeting room link, as well as instructions for you to share with your colleagues on how to setup Zoom

+Can you host with other video conferencing software?

We have a strong preference for Zoom because its breakout room function enables the smoothest experience. When necessary, we’ve hosted events on Google Meet, Microsoft Teams and Cisco WebEx for smaller groups, but they tend to have a slightly more clunky experience

+Can your event handle hybrid teams that are partly in-office and partly remote? How is the experience different from entirely remote team events?

Yes! We’ve made some minor adjustments to our remote team activities in order to seamlessly accommodate a variety of hybrid team setups. And we’ve been careful to ensure that participants have the same quality experience, regardless of where they’re logging in from.

2 simple steps! Share this information from your confirmation:

1) The unique Zoom meeting link

2) Instructions on how to download Zoom desktop with your team to make sure they’re properly set up to join the event

We handle the rest!

+Do you handle event registrations?

We do not handle event registrations at this time. We found that event registration was best handled by team and event organizers who have full context for the attendees. We’re happy to suggest ways to manage this process if helpful

+Can we pre-select teams in advance?

The default is for us to randomize teams, which is our recommended option to maintain flexibility since not everyone always shows up, and to mix up groups.

We understand some event contexts require pre-selected teams, and we can accommodate that as well. We’ll reach out with a template for you to drop teams into, and we’ll make sure they’re reflected during the event. Teams are generally 4 – 7 people

+ Additional Activity Details

+How do we work in our teams?

Zoom has the ability to create private rooms within a larger group chat, and our host can move you in and out of those rooms on command. So a round will be introduced, you’ll be placed in a private room with just your team of 4-6 people, and brought back to the larger group when the round is done.

Click here to learn more about how it works!

+How do players respond to questions?

We host all of the round content on our survey platform that includes the questions, a built in timer, and space to submit answers. Our host will provide a link after introducing each round. Each team will have a designated “team captain” that will be responsible for submitting their teams answers

+How will players know when to move from their breakout sessions to the main room?

Our host takes care of that for you! You’ll always be in the right place at the right time

+How do you manage people talking over one another in the Zoom session?

Participants are muted during the main sessions, which is treated more as a broadcast from our facilitators to the group. During this period, participants can interact via chat.

+How do you judge who won --- are we graded, or is it in a game-show style?

Our platform and hosts will grade your answer submissions in real-time, and announce them after each round. Make no mistake – there IS a right and wrong answer, and there WILL be a winner!

+ Game content

+Who is this for? Is it a fun trivia game, or a more professional one?

Whether you’re looking to host a fun group activity with some light trivia, or focus more on remote team building, we’ll design the right content for you. Our facilitators are also trained to read the room and work with you to match the tone and experience you’re looking for.

+Do you need special knowledge to play? Is it like a bar trivia activity?

Inclusivity and fun-for-all are very important to us. With that in mind, we design each round and question to limit the amount of outside knowledge needed to answer. Our “Classic Mix” game theme is the best example of this. There are very few “you know it or you don’t” type questions, and we actively reward team discussion in arriving at the right answers.

Our other game themes have more general-knowledge-type rounds, but those are also designed so that teams don’t purely rely on outside knowledge to answer the questions.

Upon request, we’re happy to make the game more of a bar trivia style or to include specific themes that your group will like.

+Is this appropriate for a corporate audience? Will anyone be uncomfortable?

It is appropriate for corporate audiences. Our expert event facilitators have hosted many events for many different teams, and the activity itself features no mature content.

+Can we customize the content?

There are 2 customization packages available:

  1. We’ll provide you with a template and you provide the content (which we’ll upload to our system):
    • 1-2 rounds: $250
    • 3-4 rounds: $500
  2. We’ll create content tailored to your specific needs:
    • 1 round: $350
    • 2 rounds: $650
    • 3 rounds: $850
    • 4 rounds: $1,000
