Does the game come with a leaderboard?

What are the game play options?

There are two primary gameplay options: Self Paced gameplay vs. Host directed trivia. The host directed trivia works well when you want to create a game show type of environment in your general session or trade show booth.   Self-paced games, on the other hand, are most effective when you want attendees to answer questions at their own pace. An example could be – when playing games during breaks.

What do I need to setup SocialPoint onsite?

If you are deploying hosted trivia in a conference room, we recommend that you do the following:

(1) Provide the host with an iPad so he(or she) can start the game and advance the questions.

(2) Connect a source laptop showing the leaderboard (and current question) to your big screen.

(3) Give the players the app link – ahead of time or during the event. 

Pro-tip:  Organize a backup iPad (in case the host loses internet connectivity) while on stage.

Pro-tip:  Set up your source laptops on a different network than the attendees.
