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.
