Lockdown Quiz– How to play

For those of you who need some advice on how to get started then here is our guide to get you going. Its easier than you think so please don’t be put off. Any issues then please ask via info@bragstreet.org or via your WhatsApp group. The event is free, the apps are free so please consider supporting our three charities .

You will ideally need two devices to play. The first device is to view the questions and quizmaster, ideally this would be a desktop, laptop or tablet, this will use a video conferencing product called Zoom and we will discuss how to set this up next. The second device is used to enter the answers on via a website called kahoot. This second device can be anything but works well on a smartphone.

Device 1 – Zoom.

On your first device you will need to visit https://zoom.us/ - From here you can click on ‘Join a meeting’ at the top of the screen. This will enable you to join the meeting. If you prefer you can download Zoom on to your device and join the meeting via the program or app, Zoom is also available on the app store and google play. If you download then you will need to register via your email address etc. For the purposes of our quiz it is fine to use Zoom via the website or the app. We hope to have a practice quiz on the evening before so you can iron out any issues.

Device 2 – Kahoot.

Kahoot

If you have kids under the age of 18 its highly likely they will be Kahoot experts so now would be a good time to enlist their help!!

So, on your second device you need to visit kahoot.it (not Kahoot.com) via your browser or get the Kahoot! app via the app store or google play. When we start the game you will be given a PIN code and then you will enter the game via your second device, for the time being though you can leave kahoot until we issue the PIN. If you wish to practice in advance then please visit kahoot.com (not kahoot.it - notice the different address) there are lots of practice quizzes that you can play to familiarise yourself with the system.

Before we start

The doors will open at about 6:30pm, from this time visit the Zoom page or app and then join the meeting using the ID and password provided. When asked about audio then use computer audio. Beware – if you turn your video on then we can see you just like you can see us…. There is a chat function, this is a great way to communicate with the quizmaster and the others on the quiz, any issues then please post via chat and we should be able to resolve your problems.

Once you are happy with your Zoom set up, then grab your second device and make sure it is charged. Visit Kahoot.it or use the app, and enter the pin provided by the quizmaster on Zoom alonf with a nickname. The game won’t start until the quizmaster is ready and enough people have joined.

BRaG is running this quiz in lieu of any physical events so far this year. We would appreciate your support so you will see some information on our fundraising efforts for this year and we would appreciate donations to enable our charities to keep working though this difficult time.
