NO LONGER REQUIRED!
With Luna Park's latest release, Friday Night Trivia has entered it's third evolution! That's right, we are now Charizard's in the world of Virtual Trivia. So what does that mean?
No need to register before each show. Just show up and play!
Toss out those spreadsheets, we're done with them! You will answer IN Luna Park.
The one thing that won't change however: Knox is still the mascot of the show!
NEW SCORING RULES
The new scoring system is designed so that you can play with a team, play by yourself, or play by yourself with a team. Wait, what? Ok, let me explain:
As in the previous version of Luna Park, you will still be able to create/join a team or choose not to and play solo.
If you are playing solo, it is pretty obvious that the points you earn for a question are the points you will receive and you will appear on the leaderboard as your Luna Park handle.
PLAYING AS A TEAM
This is where we get to do a little math. EVERYONE ON THE TEAM CAN ANSWER! Players on your team can choose to answer a question if they'd like or opt out on some as well. If your team chooses to go the route of having one person answer, the math will be as simple as playing solo (see above).
If multiple people on your team choose to answer, just know that an average of the correct answers will be used as your final point value for that question.
In the following examples, you would be playing in a team of 4 people.
- 2 members answer the question and get it correct. That is 2/2 and your team would be awarded the full 100pts.
- 4 members answer the question and 3/4 get it correct. Your team would be awarded 75pts
PLAYING BY YOURSELF ON A TEAM
After each question, the leaderboard is presented and you can choose from two views: Team Leaderboard and Individual Leaderboard. Prove to the team how valuable you are by showing that you are sitting on top of the individual leaderboard. They have to respect your guesses now, right?
DJ HOKIENICK, HAVE YOU NOT SEEN THE NEWS?
WE ARE QUARANTINING!
HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO INTERACT WITH MY TEAM?
Now that we have switched platforms from Twitch to one that is developed strictly for Trivia Events such as this, you no longer need to worry about switching your screen from your Zoom Meeting back to the show!
Now you can gather in your teams in Luna Park, discuss, and even have a slider to adjust the volume to turn down the music when discussing, and then bringing it back up once you've answered!
HAVE FUN! PLAY FAIR!
As this trivia game has matured, we have created a time aspect to this game. With these version 2 scoresheets, you no longer have to score yourselves (I'll take on that burden!). In order to ensure that the team that truly knows the answer leads the pack, the top three teams that submit the correct answer the quickest will earn their team an extra bonus point on top of their wager for that question.
I am extremely excited to bring you the next generation of DJ Hokienick's Friday Night Trivia and look forward to our good times ahead!
ABOUT THE HOST AND GAME
Your host with the most. Your Emcee from DC.
Before Covid-19, DJ Hokienick (Nick Castillo) hosted trivia at Barn Brewery on Tuesdays and various other pubs/restaurants around the San Diego area.
Shoutout and thanks to Sunset Trivia as the questions I will be asking are from previous games that I have hosted over the past two years.
Lastly, as a forewarning, due to streaming channels being jerks with copyright stuff and shutting live shows down, the music that will be playing will be royalty free, but I will be doing my best to find songs that aren't THAT horrible. I do have a reputation to uphold!
