What age is Family Trivia aimed at? My four-year-old is smarter than most eleven-year-olds. Will she be bored?
We are aiming for questions that will appeal to all ages. Some will be easier for young children and others will be easier for tweens, or their parents.
How will it work?
Questions will be read and presented over PowerPoint (or played, for the music round) by our Trivia Master, twice each. In that time you will collaborate with your family and record your final answer. At the end of every second round, answers will be read out, and you will mark your own answers.
Wait! What? We are marking our own answers? How do we stop people from cheating?
Well, first of all, people can also cheat when they are answering the questions. Their sixth teammate might be Alexa, or Siri, or Jeeves. But then what’s the point in playing? Also, we have some moles scattered around the neighbourhood, ready to make a citizen’s arrest and ban you and your kids from all future game nights and GNAG summer camps if you are caught cheating.
No. Just don’t cheat, okay?
How many questions do we have to let the kids answer? Our family really, really likes likes to win.
That’s really for you to think about. In the meantime, you might want to check out this link. Or this one. Or this one. But again, totally your call.
How long will it last?
About 75 minutes, but it will be so much fun that it will feel like 60.
Will there be an intermission?
No, but that’s the beauty of teamwork. If someone has to step away for a few minutes, the rest of the team can cover for them.
What if I don’t trust my family to answer any questions in my absence?
They will probably enjoy the break.
What’s the prize?
The prize is family togetherness.
I’ve been spending a LOT of time with my family. That doesn’t sound like an amazing prize.
But this is not just time around your family, it’s time where your family will come together to have fun and work towards a shared goal.
There will also be a draw.
Is the prize alone-time?
My kids are super-gifted. Should we declare that at the beginning of the game to warn people that we might have an unfair advantage?
That’s really thoughtful, but we trust that you will be able to work that into the conversation organically.
I only have fur babies. Can they play?
Only if they are dressed like children. Also, you might actually need a kid or two around to help you answer some of the questions.
I’m really bad at trivia. Should I still play?
Yes! There will be a variety of fun questions in many different areas, aimed at every age level. Besides your kids might surprise you.
