Imagine that you can make a Trivia game with automated questions inside your live stream. Imagine also that you can add webcam, external audio devices, and background music from your PC. These technical features are impressive. But let's look at these features from another angle.
For example, you have a Facebook page with one million users. But Facebook wants you to pay for the ad's to reach them all. In the case of 1 mln subscribers, Facebook will show your content only for 5% of them. But using an interactive live stream, for example, Trivia Game, you can reach all 100%. So, how it's working.
First, you need to create your live stream game
Go to - https://studio.livereacting.com/
Find in our library the Trivia Game template. We have two options, with a host or without it. In our example, we will take a template with a host.
This is how the blank template looks like. In the right corner, you will see the window with the game, in the left section place for the host. To turn on the camera, you need to click on a black square and choose the device, don't forget to select also your audio equipment, but you can do it later.
To start editing your trivia game, click on the right part of the screen, where it's located. Or click on the appropriate layer. Here we have two options: "Questions config" and "Game appearance" config.
Let's start with the questions. In our questions library, we have 24 topics from general to specific, like science or even cartoons. You can pick the level of each topic from Easy to Hard or choose any. LiveReacting supports up to 50 questions. Of course, you can fill all the questions and answers manually, by any topic you want, or even generate random questions by clicking generate new questions button.
After you saved all the questions, we will go to game appearance config where we can set Titles, subtitles, logos, colors, backgrounds, timing per round and other settings that we will look closely next.
The first block named "Start screen" have Title and Subtitle fields, timer, font color, and of course, background picture. Here you will set up your custom start screen that will have countdown till the game start. There is how it looks.
Btw, for a preview of all of your visual settings, you need to click on the top right corner of the trivia game window. You can see the "Start screen," "Round screen," "Round results," and "Game result."
"Round" and "Round end" (Results) have the same functions as the start screen, so we will skip straight to the end screen of the game. This is the main result screen of all competition. Here you can choose by how the algorithm will select the winners, how much they will be. But the super thing we have here it's "exclude" option, where you can add people and their votes will be ignored.
Now we almost ready to go live, customize your Trivia Game with the logo if you want, and we are prepared to go Live!
Tip: To have more players in your Trivia Game, we highly recommend to click a "schedule" option. With this function, Facebook will automatically create an event for your live stream, and people will see an announcement when your game will start.
You're done! You need to click "Go Live" when you have your scheduled time come.
