If you can get to it in time, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a complimentary copy of "The Wild West" Fat Bottom Trivia Presentation. This Promotion will Expire on July 31st.
Fat Bottom Trivia games are available to use at your local trivia events, but not permitted to reproduce electronically. Feel free to brand your event however you choose.
Step 2: Download and Install Microsoft Powerpoint or Equivalent
All presentations are tested on Powerpoint, but you may find equal usability from a free alternative such as LibreOffice or Google Docs.
For a detailed guide to installing Powerpoint from Microsoft click here.
If you are ready, or already have an Office 365 subscription, download it here: https://office.microsoft.com/powerpoint/
Step 3: Download And Open Trivia Presentation In Presenter Mode
Choose the Slide Show tab from the top, and depending on what version you are using, there will be an option to enable "Presenter Mode" Or "Presenter View". This will ensure you can see the answers on the next slide after choosing categories, as well as any notes for the hosts, if there are any.
Fat Bottom Trivia games are only available at the Fat City Trivia Store.
Step 4: After each question, click the "Home" button at the bottom of the game board.
I typically permit the first player or team that arrived to choose the first category. This is a good way to ensure that guests are punctual in their arrival before the games.
If the player chooses a "hidden side game" then the rules apply to them, and that team gets to decide on the choice, if there is one.
Step 5: Keep Score and Encourage "Bonus Points"
People come to trivia nights for interactions with other teams, to listen to a funny host, and to show off their trivia skills that would be otherwise useless in the real world...
Encourage teams to dance, sing, or even play paddy-cake with the opposing teams next to them. You'd be surprised what people will do for a few make believe points. And they'll gloat about it the next day around the water-cooler. That's when you know you've got a great show.
Step 6: Allow teams to wager as much of their accumulated points as they desire, in the final "Dare You 2 Wager" challenge.
After you've calculated the scores, you have yourself a winner, and a defending champion!
There are many more ways to improve your shows, with prizes, tournaments, and returning champions, but if you decide to utilize our pre-made presentations, you can jump-to-front-of-the-line, as they say.
