Ride out the winter blues with another Trinity Hall Virtual Quiz – back by popular demand!

The feedback following our previous quizzes has been brilliant so we want to give you all another opportunity to take part, and when better to have some fun than post-holidays!

Alumni, students, Fellows and staff of the College are invited to play individually or as a team with others in their household – so get your family or housemates involved. Hosted by The Big Smoke Events Company, we bring to you a live trivia quiz which you can take part in from the comfort of your home. The questions are fun, fast paced and multiple choice – so if you don’t know the answer, you’ve still got a chance at winning points!

 

How does it work? It’s simple…

1) This 5 round trivia quiz is LIVE and video-streamed straight to your home!

2) You can play individually or as a team with others in your household. Teams cannot be formed with people in different locations.

3) Each round will have a different theme from general knowledge to animal facts to movie trivia so get swatting up…

4) A live leaderboard will keep track after every round so you can keep an eye on the competition!

5) You only have a set amount of time to answer each question and extra points are awarded the faster you answer – there’s no time for cheating in this quiz!

6) The technology is simple. All you need is a computer (to see the questions and other participants) AND a smartphone/tablet/second computer screen (to submit your answers) – see note below. We will send you joining instructions by email on the day of the quiz which will include a link to Zoom. Open the link on your computer and once you are in, further instructions will be given to you by the Quiz Master.

Note. It is possible to use one computer screen however this will impact the user experience. You will need to split the screen so you can see two windows; Zoom and the webpage for submitting answers.

7) Remember to turn your webcam on so everyone can see who they are up against!

8) At the end of the quiz we will have the all important results – of course this is competitive so there will be a winner who will receive a mystery prize.

9) You can join from 8pm to make sure you are logged in correctly.

Had it not been for the Hardship Fund, as well as the considerate, caring and hardworking people at Trinity Hall, I don’t know how I would have made it through these difficult times.” Current PhD student
