We organized the A-Z guide into four different sections to match your planning and on-site exhibiting processes.
1. Preparing your game
The Setup Wizard will guide you through choosing a game template, graphics and adding questions into your game. If you want to further customize it, you can check out the following resources that will help you get what you need:
a. Choose a game template

b. Choose your device type
You want to make sure the game displays on the device type you're using.
Navigate to Trivia Home and click Edit under your game
Choose between iPad/Mobile or both
Scroll down and click Update
c. Create branded graphics
Full customization is possible with our graphic templates for iPad screens and Leaderboard.

Make sure your Gameplays (Game Manager tab) and Question Categories are Live.
e. Decide what lead data to collect in your game.
SocialPoint trivia offers both a Lead Capture form and a Survey form. Here are some notes about how these tools work together:
The survey appears on a second screen after the lead capture form.
Repeat game players only see the survey questions one time.
We recommend that you keep your lead capture form simple to first name, last name and email. Then, add the other relevant fields that you want to capture to your survey.
Lead capture form and survey form data are linked together with game player data in a single excel file download.

2. Planning to exhibit
Before traveling onsite, ensure that you have ordered the right equipment and have your booth space set up for a successful trivia game.
Monitor at 42-65 inches that displays in 1920x1080 format
Computer / Server with Chrome browser and 6-8 GB Ram
iPad 2s or newer, iPad minis work as well
We suggest using an easel type stand to make play easier
Wifi service for iPads and Leaderboard
Use Venue Wifi or Hotspot (Choose one service level above the basic plan.)
3 Mbps download speed
Dynamic IP is sufficient (Static IP is not necessary)
Optional: Hardwire line to wireless router for Monitors
LOCATION: Pick a high-traffic area at the event for your game. We suggest a footprint against a wall of 10 x 10 feet with extra space around for traffic flow.
FURNITURE: Provide tables at bar height (36”) for walk-up play. Three – 6-foot tables to hold 10 iPads set in a horseshoe is suggested. You can also use highboy tables in a semi-circle around the leaderboard.
PRIZE: Pick a meaningful prize for the winner and advertise it. It could be a coveted electronic like an iPad mini or a cheap and cheerful traveling trophy.
SIGNAGE & DECOR: Signage is important for announcing the game and prize. A full backdrop (10’x10’) is a nice enhancement to define the space and create a visual anchor for the game.
Include staff to encourage play and assist players with the game
3. Setting up and managing your game onsite
Now that you are onsite, you need to get your Leaderboard and iPads (if applicable) set up. Then, you need to know how to resolve the three most common questions people have about managing their game.
