frequently asked questions
ONLINE QUIZ - FAQs
What the hell is Zoom?
Zoom Video Communications is generally used as a remote meeting service where people can connect from different locations.
How do I use it to play the quiz?
Before each quiz, we will send a link which will give you access to join the Zoom 'meeting' online.
I want to play the quiz as part of a team with my friends, but are in different bubbles. How do I connect with them?
It's really up to you how you connect with your team - FaceTime, Skype, House Party, Messenger, phone calls are all ways in which you can discuss answers and work together with your crew.
Will the rest of the quizzers hear our team discuss answers?
We will mute all players on entry of the quiz, unless you unmute yourselves, others cannot hear you.
Is there a chat going during the quiz?
Yes, there is a chat during the quiz where anyone can contribute.
Will there be music in the quiz? We may not be able to hear our team mates over the music!
Some questions will be accompanied by music or audio. In most instances, these are relevant and required for the question.
What if the quiz master talks when we are trying to discuss answers with our team mates?
Unlike a live quiz, it is nearly impossible for our quiz master to 'read the room' and work out timings and when to speak and when not to speak.
How long will the quiz take?
The quiz will take approximately two hours, the themed quizzes a little longer as there is more content.
Where do we write our answers down?
On the Facebook event page, we will provide you a link to an online form, where one nominated team 'scribe' will enter your team name and then the answers to questions 1-10, plus the Bonus Baffler.
Do we need to register our team? How do we choose our double round?
Yes, we do need your team to register prior to the quiz to give us an idea of how many teams we have playing.
Will I get a confirmation email that my team has successfully registered?
No, but you will receive this message on the online form once submitted, so rest assured we have received it:
I've heard it's important to be consistent when we enter our team name on the form?
Yes! You will be entering your team name once on the registration form and then five times during the quiz with each round of answers.
Will we find out our score on the night of the quiz?
Unfortunately no. It takes us several hours to complete the marking accurately, so scores will be published the day following the quiz on the Facebook event page.
Does it cost us to play the quiz?
We ran the quizzes for no charge for the first four weeks of the lock down, however the sheer amount of work involved each week means we have to charge a $10 per team fee to cover our costs.
What are the prizes?
This quiz is more about playing a quiz and having fun doing so during this time rather than winning prizes, but most quizzes will include a prize for first place and some spot prizes.
How do know other teams aren't Googling answers?
Unfortunately there is no way for us to police this aspect.
Will Gee Quiz continue to do online quizzes once the lock down has finished and the bars are open?
There is nothing like a quiz in real person with the energy of the crowd, group laughs and banter, so that will be priority one for us once this is over.
