How To Play Trivia

Trivia is perhaps the easiest quiz format out there. For those of you who don’t know, here’s how to play trivia:

1) Choose A Quiz Master

In order to play trivia, you need a quiz master. This is the person who will ask the trivia questions and reveal the answers. If you are playing trivia as a classroom game, the quiz master would usually be the teacher, but you can also designate a student to be the quiz master.

2) Choose A Topic/Theme For Your Quiz

The topic/theme you choose for your trivia quiz will depend on the level and interests of your audience. For example, if you are teaching teenagers, then you might want to choose funny trivia questions to keep them interested. Or, if you are playing trivia with adults, you may want to use a mixture of trivia question topics, such as geography, history, movies, etc, so that the quiz is challenging enough.

3) Make Teams

Trivia is best played in teams. Groups of 3, 4, or 5 people are best. If you’re playing trivia in class, ensure that higher-level and lower-level students are evenly distributed throughout the groups. This will ensure each team has a fair chance in the quiz and that no team will be left feeling demotivated if they don’t get many questions right.

4) Ask The Questions

Once you have a quiz master, you have chosen your questions, and set up teams, it’s time for the trivia fun to begin! Ask questions and have each time write their answers down on a piece of paper.

5) Check The Answers

Finally, it’s time to check the answers and award points. This can be done by having teams give their answer sheets to the quiz master for him/her to mark. Alternatively, you can get each team to swap their answer sheet with another team. This is much more efficient and has the added benefit of keeping all players from getting distracted while answers are checked.
