RECRUITING YOUR TEAM
The whole point of the online games is to bring people together during this time of social distancing. You can play on your own or with the people living in your house, or you can gather the whole gang together online or on the phone. Questions are asked in sets of 3, and then teams are given 3 minutes to discuss possible answers. Use whatever platform is easiest for your team to communicate; large teams playing across multiple cities or states have recommended using an app called Discord, but there has also been success with conference calls, FaceTime, Skype, Google hangout, and other free services. Use whatever works best for your team as long as just one person is submitting the answers for the team.
LOGGING IN TO PLAY
Roughly 10-15 minutes before your scheduled game you will get an e-mail from Stephen with 2 links:
* LINK 1 will be a link to the Zoom meeting where you can watch and hear the game. You will share this link with your teammates
* LINK 2 will be a link to the Google Form where you (the team captain) will submit your answers for each question. You don’t need to share this.
Once you are registered then keep an eye out for the e-mail about 10-15 minutes before your scheduled start time (make sure it doesn’t go to spam). You will be able to login at that point.
