For those of you who haven’t done so before, the game is played as follows: you and up to 7 of your teammates join a quizmaster in Zoom, who asks you three rounds of 8 questions each and keeps your score.
Just wanted to make sure that you guys knew where to find the scores updated throughout the week. You can go to the Tournament tab on the right, open that page, then hit results. Or you can just go here and click the “Group Play Schedule” tab at the bottom. You can also check the standings the same way, or click here and hit “Standings” at the bottom.
Time for another Sunday lab, where we’ll be experimenting again this Sunday. It’s free to play, just sign up here and I’ll send you a zoom invite Sunday afternoon. Tips are accepted, and 50% of all tips go to PPEHRC. We raised $150 for charity this past Sunday, so thank everyone for their generosity! Hope to see ya this Sunday.

Excited to start a new quizmaster this week. Blake Wexler is a very funny comedian from Philly who is now based in LA. I know that my comedian buddies aren’t getting a ton of work these days, and that they make for terrific quizmasters. So I reached out to Blake and was thrilled when he said yes, because I knew that people would think their quiz was being hosted by Penn Badgley from the Netflix show YOU (see below). Blake joins the team this week, and does have some availability if anybody is looking to play!

Here’s a link to a three round scoresheet you can print out and play along. Just go to Johnny Goodtimes Quizzo on Facebook and we should be live at 8:30. In addition to the championship game, we’ll also have Steve O of Lambda playing keyboard between rounds. This has all the makings of an awesome time. Or a total train wreck that you can mock me about for the next month. Either way, YOU WIN!
Saturday NightChampionship Game: The Synchronized Trampoline (Locust Rendezvous) and the Social Distance Warriors (O’Neals) are going head to head on Saturday night for the Tourney title, and you’re invited to attend. We’re going to be airing it live on the Johnny Goodtimes Quizzo Facebook Page at 8:30 on Saturday night (if the technology gods allow). And you’re welcome to play along from home! I’ll have details for how you can sign up for a scoresheet tmrw afternoon on the FB page, and Steve O of Lambda will be playing piano between rounds.
Sunday Night Quiz: We’ve got two chances to play on Zoom on Sunday night. We’re up to 23 teams so far, but do have room for a few more. You can sign up here, for teams of 2-8 players. It’s a fun twist on the regular quiz.
Quizzo Cup: We’re up 31 teams signed up for the Quizzo World Cup so far, and would love to get up to 48. We’re going to have a ton of fun with this thing. Stats, team badges, team logos, team uniforms. Let’s get as ridiculous as possible. Signs ups go until Sunday at 11:59.
Hoooo my goodness, looks like it’s time for our first ever World Cup of Quizzo!
In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve been having a blast exploring the new Virtual Quizzo world with you all, and your feedback has been overwhelmingly uplifting. So, as promised, we’re pleased to roll out our first official Virtual Quizzo “season”, starting Monday, May 4th. The league will be built World Cup-style- you register your team, and you’ll be randomly assigned to a Group with 3 other teams to start the season. Here’s the breakdown:
3-Week Regular Season (single-team format)
Each week your team will play in a single-team session where it’s just you and the host- the same format we’ve been doing every weeknight during this pandemic. You’ll be shooting for a high score as always, but you’ll also be playing “against” another team in your group, trying to rack up a strong win-loss-tie record in the Group Play standings.
Tournament Play (head-to-head format)
Depending on how many teams register, we’ll have at least one tournament bracket with seedings based on win-loss-tie records and total average scores. These games will be played in a head-to-head format using two breakout rooms in Zoom.
In summary, every team will play a minimum of 4 games- 3 regular season, and at least one tournament game. The deeper you go in the tourney, the better your value.
The Price: $160 per team. Yeah it’s slightly more than you’re paying for a quiz now (unless you advance in the tourney), but in return we’re going to add badges for accomplishments such as perfect rounds and high scores, create an overall Top 10 ranking system based on the numbers, and we’ll have some fun prizes and stuff to give away as well. You’ll also get to lock in your time for three weeks in a row instead of one.
(If you don’t wanna join the World Cup, rest assured…we will still be doing a la carte quizzes.)
Team Logo: If you are going to play, we’re going to request that you create a team logo. It can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. I find Canva to be super user friendly for stuff like this.
Sign Up: To enter the World Cup, sign up here. To pay and lock in your slot, send $160 to @jgtquizzo on venmo or email@example.com on Paypal.
We’ll be posting records, stats, and all sorts of team features & highlights throughout the season. And yes, we’ll have prizes for our top teams. Whether you’re competitive or just a casual quizzer, this is sure to be the highlight of your quarantine. Register now!
We’ve been having a lot of fun with the Sunday night quiz! A bit different than our regular quiz during the week, as all the players gather in one room, then when each round ends head off to breakout rooms where they confer with their teammates. We also feature a video round from Chip Chantry each week. We do two on Sunday nights, one with me hosting AT 7 PM and one with Carl at 8:30. We’re bumping up the number of teams each week, and this week will go up to 20 teams deep. It’s totally different questions than the one during the week, so everyone is welcome to sign up and play. Hope to see ya Sunday!
Hey there fam. We’ve got several openings still available for quizzes this week. You can sign up here. And heads up…we’re actually doing two different quizzes this week, so if you want to play once on Mon/Tuesday you CAN play again on Wed/Thur/Fri. Here are the ones available as of 12:30 Tuesday afternoon:
