Game Introduction

  • From https://www.jackboxgames.com/trivia-murder-party/
    • Waaaaake Up! It’s time to play Trivia Murder Party, a deadly quiz show where you match wits with a trivia-obsessed killer.
    • Answer trivia questions correctly in each round or you’ll find yourself on The Killing Floor, where players compete in devious minigames that determine whether they survive another round or become a ghost. But relax, ghosts can still win the game. (The host is evil, but he still cares about balanced game design.)

Game Step-by-Step

  1. On your 2nd device, go into your web browser and visit jackbox.tv then type in the room code from the Zoom’s screen share. Please enter in your first name that matches the Zoom call name.

  4. The game will reveal the answer and if you answered it incorrectly it may bring your character into a mini game such as picking a chalice to drink from (there is poison in some of them), doing simple math, memorizing patterns, and more.
