Show questions live on the big screen or over Zoom. Hundreds of players can use their phones to play along, top 20 scores show up on the leaderboard.
The game comes with over 200 questions built in, but it is easy to make new questions right inside the game, or import/export questions to share.
Customize the look, import questions, and the game calculates all the scores. This has to be the fastest, easiest, most fun way to play trivia.

INTRO (HOST SCRIPT)
"You know what time it is... it's TRIVIA TIME!!! Thanks for playing along, this is going to be a lot of fun.
To play along you will need to go to CCG.BUZZ and enter the game code.
Our first round of questions will be 'general knowledge'. I will read the question then show the 4 possible answers, you will see all this on your phone.
You will have 10 sec to answer, the faster you answer the more points you get. But if you get it wrong... you will loose those points.
(Tip: If you are not sure about the answer wait until the time is almost up)
The player at the top of the leaderboard when time is up will be our winner!
Any Questions? Alright let's play! "
PRO - White Label -
We have had many request to remove branding from CCG.BUZZ for our professional crowd. So here we go...
Game codes created by TriviaTimePRO will not have the "CrowdControlGames.com" branding on the CCG.BUZZ pages.
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.
