--- GAME SETUP ---
The "Screen" button at the top right of the control screen will turn the game screen on. If you have multiple displays connected it will also let you select which screen you want the game on. Windowed mode is a great way to play the game on a single screen if you want to practice.
HOW TO SET UP BUZZERS & 2nd SCREEN
This game is way more fun if you have buttons to buzz in. The players will be using the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0 number keys to buzz in. Connecting buzzers that will send those keystrokes to the games is our favorite way to play. Here is a video that shows how to connect buzzers to a game.
