Invite you players to the room

You should now be on the Host Control Panel. This is where you'll control the game from. On the top right hand corner you'll find your Room Code. If you hover over the code you'll be prompted to copy your Triviabolt room link. Copy this link and send it to your players. This is how your players will join the game.

Additional Tips

Triviabolt let's you manage your game anyway you would like. We have found that Zoom's breakout rooms allow for great team discussion, all while in the same Zoom meeting. We suggest creating a breakout room for each team, and adding that team's players to the breakout room. We also suggest creating a time limit for each round and telling your players to rejoin the main call at the end of that time limit. This allows you as the host to go over all of the questions before starting the next round. You can find more information on breakout rooms here.
