Family Trivia with the Trivia Brothers

The Trivia Brothers bring Challenge! Interactive trivia to Framingham families. Hosted with big personality and no boring questions.

Ages 5+.

SIGN UP HERE.

Enjoying an episode of “Challenge! Trivia” is easy. Here’s what you need to know: First and foremost, you will need TWO DEVICES in order to enjoy the optimal experience - a computer (to join the Zoom meeting) and a smart phone or tablet (to play the game). Teams can be comprised of individual or multiple players. Recommended team size is 3-6 players. If members of a team are in separate locations, we suggest arranging a conference call during the game. IMPORTANT! Each team will use ONLY ONE smart phone or tablet to enter the game and submit the answers. Use the Zoom link provided by your event host to connect. Your link will be available the day of your episode. We strongly suggest using a computer to enter the meeting and view the episode. 

(“Virtual doors” to the waiting room will open 10 minutes prior to the start of the game and the game will begin PROMPTLY at the advertised start time.)

Although it’s not mandatory, the Trivia Brothers suggest joining the meeting with video on so they can interact with you! Then, once the episode officially starts, the Trivia Brothers will tell you how to register (using your smart phone or tablet) so you can play! Don’t worry, there is no special app to play, simply a website that will be ANNOUNCED ONCE YOU ARE IN THE EVENT. AGAIN, it’s ONE phone/tablet per team during gameplay.
