Q: How can I play?
A: Simply join us via the "Sign Up" link on the front page, and then register at freepubtrivia.com/login (New Account). Your username will be your chat handle. You can then create a team, a team password, and add team members by email address.
Q: Is there a limit to the number of team members who can be added?
A: Add as many team members as you like, but only EIGHT can access a game at once. There is also an eight person limit per team for a given game. Keep your general/rotating group as large as you want - if every person who enjoys playing pitches in, it'll be super cheap for everyone!
Q: Do all team members need to fully register on the website to play?
A: No - the team creator (ie. yourself) is the only one who needs to fully register on the website. Other members do NOT need to register to play. They can access the game by: a) clicking Join Game at freepubtrivia.com (link posted 30 min+ before game starts), and b) entering their email address (that was registered on the roster by the creator), team name, & Game Code (posted w/the link).
Q: Can a player whose email is not added to a team roster join the game?
A: If a player enters an email that was not added by the creator, he/she will need the team password as well to join the team for the game.
Q: We typically just have a team member share their screen with us. Is that alright, or does everyone need to log into the stream to play?
A: By ALL means, continue that practice if it's best for you - no, not everyone needs to directly join the game to play. The step of joining the game only applies to players who want to access the stream/answer sheet on their device. You are on the honor system with playing EIGHT OR FEWER PLAYERS for a given game - don't ruin the integrity of the game or yourself (as well as cheat other teams)!
Q: What should I do if I have trouble logging into a game, and am unsure of what is wrong?
A: Any player having issues joining a game can post in the open chat at the bottom left corner of the screen (it will appear once an attempt to join is made) to communicate with us (they'll be randomly assigned a handle). On a related note, once logged in, if you do not see the Whaddayaknow Chatroom in the bottom left corner, click Leave Game and rejoin, and it should be there (you won't lose anything at all). You can also email email@example.com any time.
Q: I sometimes play with different groups. Can I create multiple teams under my account?
A: You can create up to three different teams with a registered account (ie. three team names, so you can pick which to play with for each game).
Q: Can I also be a member of other teams (created by other users)?
A: Yes, you can be a member of other teams (as a non creator).
Q: Are there prizes for the winning teams? When is the subscriber Whaddayadough credited?
A: Of course! The top ten teams are credited with WhaddayaDOUGH after every game! Whaddayadough is redeemable at our online store (freepubtrivia.com/store) which is full of AWESOME products (with more to come)! Your team also receives an automatic 50 in Whaddayadough credit every month just for being a member! Accumulate as much Whaddayadough as you can, and cash it in for some great prizes!
Q. Are there any browsers I should not use?
A: Do not use Internet Explorer. The use of Firefox is not ideal if accessing the answer sheet from a phone.
