Game Controls & Podium improvements

Game controls

The game controls will now affect player devices as well. E.g. if you turn off the player names, they will also turn off on the player's game board and leaderboard screens.

Right now the music only works on the game host device - let us know in the feedback below if you'd like the music to work on player devices as well.

Podium improvements

We've also added confetti to the podium to make it more celebratory and changed it to dark theme. Let us know what you think!

Do you have problems with cheating?

Do you have problems with students cheating by sharing answers? Would you like to see a feature which would allow you to have dynamic quizzes so each student gets different questions?

How would it work?

Using your personal Question Bank, when making the quiz, choose a folder in your Question Bank so the software will automatically pick a random question from that folder during the live game.

Vote below and let us know if we should build this!

πŸ˜ƒ - Yes! I have this problem and would absolutely use this

😐 - Meh, maybe I would use it but don't really need it

😞 - No I would not use this

Click the file import icon to open the modal and upload your file:

πŸ’‘Tip: Use this as an easy way to add your questions from other platforms by using their reports and copying the questions into the excel template.

Smarter credits usage

We've changed the way credits are used to ensure each one is used with a real game play. Now a credit will only be used when the game has at least 5 players in and has been running for at least 5 minutes.

If this criteria is met, the system determines this is likely to be a real game play and will deduct one credit.

This means we've removed the single player option and made it a simple "Go!" button on the launch screen.

Hopefully this makes the experience simpler to use ✨
