In-game scorekeeping is built around the premise that the game will be played in class and as a whole class. To keep score, classes are broken into teams (tip: you can use the FlipQuiz Group Generator to create random teams) and then each team is awarded – or deducted – points based on correct/incorrect answers.
As a PRO member, you will be presented with the option to use the in-game scorekeeping functionality when you play a new game (using “play” mode).
Selecting “Not At This Time” (No) will close the dialog box and allow you to continue without scorekeeping. Choosing “Yes, Please!” (Yes) will automatically add two teams to the top of your board. All scores will be set to “0” and you’re ready to go.
You may find that two teams just isn’t enough. Across the top of the board, you’ll have a bar with your two teams listed. At right end of that bar is a small button that reads “Add Team.” Each press of this button will add an additional team until you reach ten teams (the max number allowed).
If you ended up with too many teams, you can easily remove them as well. Next to each team name is the score and next to that is a small “x”. Pressing the “x” will present you with a prompt asking if you are sure you want to remove this team. If yes, the team will be removed from the bar and the rest of the teams will remain.
Each team name can be customized by clicking on the team name and then typing a new team name.
