Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to participate?
We are requesting a $15 charitable donation to Little Hearts Learning to participate in this Trivia fundraiser. Your donation is going directly to support Little Hearts Learning’s projects in Papua New Guinea. Those involved with the Trivia will not collect any amount of money from your donations.
How do we play?
This is a virtual trivia event that is run live on Zoom. The link to the Zoom room will be sent 72 hours (3 days) before the event to those with confirmed donation receipts.
Can we play solo or should we be a part of the Team?
You can play solo or be a part of a team. Each member of the House should register separately and pay the donation fees to be able to play. Houses should contain no more than 5 members.
I’m in a team but we are all spread out across the world. How do we communicate during the Quiz?
Considering this is a live virtual event with Verbal Audio-Visual rounds, we will not be providing separate break-out rooms for Teams. Instead, we strongly encourage that teams use their preferred messaging service (IM/WhatsApp/FB Messenger) etc. to communicate amongst themselves during the Quiz.
How do I submit my answers in the Preliminary Round?
Each participant/team will receive a passphrase-protected Google sheet. You will type the answers into the Google sheet. Only one person will need to fill it out.
How do you prevent cheating?
We have a very, very complex system that detects cheaters with 99.99% accuracy. We could explain the area under the curve, but there are not enough bytes.
Are there prizes?
Yes! Besides prizes for winning the House Cup, there will be giveaways during the event. So show up in your best costume or dress up your Zoom window to win.
What if there is a tie?
If there is a tie during the elimination round, the teams will participate in an elimination round to narrow down the field to Top 9. When a tie happens in the verbal rounds, the team will nominate one person to compete head to head in a sudden death round, for all the marbles.
How long is the Quiz?
About 2/2.5 hours, give or take including scoring intermission and announcement of winners.
What are the team sizes?
Teams can be up to 5 people.
Do I have to buy tickets for my whole team?
You can purchase a ticket for yourself or you can buy for all members of your team at once.
Can I add more people to my team later?
Yes, but we do recommend purchasing all tickets at once. Either the team captain may purchase additional tickets, or an individual can purchase a ticket and join an existing team by providing the team name.
Can I join after the quiz starts?
Sorry, no. Registration closes 1 hour prior to the start time so we can prepare that quiz.
Can I change my team name?
Again, sorry, no. We ask for your team name during registration and request that be the same to avoid any confusion during the event.
I didn’t find my answer here.
