Here's how to play Last Call Trivia

General Rules

  • Get the app

    Download our app from Google Play or the App store before the show starts. Your Host will announce the code on the mic.

  • Don’t cheat!

    Do not unfairly obtain answers by looking them up. The only resources that should be used are the brains of you and your teammates.

  • Do not shout out the answers!

    You don’t want competing teams to hear how smart (or….not smart) you are.

  • The Host makes all final decisions

    ...so be nice to your host!

  • Have fun!

    Download our app from Google Play or the App store before the show starts. Your Host will announce the code on the mic.

  • Read over the rules and format.

    Make sure you set your team up for success by first understanding the rules.

  • Study!

    Watch the movie, TV series, or read up on the topic.

Last Call Trivia Format

  • The host will read through each question twice, play a song while your team deliberates and turns in your guess, then re-read the question before revealing the answer

 

Only one answer is allowed per team for each question, which cannot be changed once it has been turned in. If an answer is turned in without a wager, the lowest remaining point wager will be used. If no answer is turned in, your team will not receive any points.

There are 6 rounds which contain 3 questions each.

  • For rounds 1,2,and 3 in the first half of the game, teams must assign the point wagers of 1,3, or 6 each once per round, in any order they choose.

  • For rounds 4,5,and 6 in the second half of the game, teams must assign the point wagers of 2,5, or 7 each once per round, in any order they choose.

  • Incorrect guesses do not lose points, so it’s always a good practice to submit your best guess.

  • Teams will have one song (about 3-4 minutes) to type in their team name, their answer and their point wager in the app to send to the host.

  • A one-minute warning and a “last call” for answers will be announced by the host.

THERE ARE 4 TOTAL BONUS QUESTIONS, FOLLOWING ROUNDS 1,2,4, AND 5.

  • Bonus questions are always answered by a number.

  • Teams will have one song (about 3-4 minutes) to enter their team name and their numeric answer in the app to send to the host.

  • A one-minute warning and a “last call” for answers will be announced by the host.

  • The 50% of teams who are closest to the correct bonus answer will receive 1 bonus point.

There is one Halftime question at the midpoint of the game, following round 3

  • Halftime will have 4 or more possible correct answers.

  • Teams will have 2 songs (about 6-8 minutes) to type in their team name and their 4 best guesses (no more than 4 guesses may be submitted) in the app to send to the host.

  • Teams will receive 2 points for each correct answer. If a team gets all four of their answers correct, they’ll receive 1 additional bonus point for a possible total of 9 points.

There is one Final question at the end of the game, following round 6

  • The Final question is multiple parts where teams can wager anywhere from 0 and 15 points.

  • If any part of the Final is incorrect, teams will lose all of the points they wager. The answer must be entirely correct to gain points.

  • Teams will have 2 songs (about 6-8 minutes) to type in their team name and their final answer in the app to send to the host.

1 Theme Round, varies

  • One round of questions has a common “theme” based on words in the questions and answers of that round. If your team can correctly identify the recurring word, homonym, theme, etc. in all three questions or answers in that round, you will receive 2 bonus points. You will not be told which round is the Theme Round… it’s your job to figure that out!

1 Online Hint

  • Visit www.lastcalltrivia.com for the hints of the week. One of the hints listed on the website will be an answer to one of the questions. You will not be told which hint will be used nor which question it is for, so be on the lookout!

Important Note:  At Theme Shows, there will be no Theme Round, as the whole game has a common theme and no online hint. Please disregard this section of your gamesheet.

Last Call Feud Format

The host will read through each question twice, play a song while your team deliberates and types in your guess, then re-read the question before revealing the answer.

Teams may either submit one answer or try to guess all three answers, which cannot be changed once sent. If no answer is entered, your team will not receive any points.

 4 rounds of questions, 5 questions in each round

  • Each question has three possible answers; the top answer is worth 5 points, the second most popular answer is worth 3 points, and the third most popular answer is worth 1 point.

  • Teams may guess one answer to receive the corresponding number of points.

  • Teams may go for all three of the top answers listed in any order to receive 9 possible points, however, all 3 parts must be correct to gain any points. If even one of the three guesses a team submits is not one of the top 3 answers, the team will receive 0 points.

  • Teams will have 1 song (about 3-4 minutes) to type in their team name and their answer(s) in the app to send to the host.

 There are 2 Bonus questions, following rounds 1 and 3.

  • Bonus 1: The host will give the top 3 surveyed answers. Teams will have one song (about 3-4 minutes) to type in their team name and what they believe the question was. 5 points will be awarded to any team guessing the question correctly.

  • Bonus 2: The host will give both the question as well as the top surveyed answers in alphabetical order. Teams will have one song (about 3-4 minutes) to type in their team name and what they believe the correct order for the answers is, from highest to lowest, based on the results from the survey. 5 points will be awarded to any team guessing the order correctly.

There is one Halftime question at the midpoint of the game, following round 2.

  • Halftime has 7 answers. For each correct answer a team guesses, they will receive 4 points, for a possible total of 28 points on Halftime.

  • Teams will have 2 songs (about 6-8 minutes) to type in their team name and their answers in the app to send to the host.

There is one Final question at the end of the game, following round 4.

The Final consists of 5 separate questions on which one team member will represent your team for each part.

  • The categories for each part of the Final will be announced in advance, and the team can decide who will represent them for each part of the Final.

  • Each team member should participate in the final question as equally as possible, so if you have 5 team members, each one should be assigned to one part of the question. If you have more than 5 team members, some will sit out. If you have less than 5 team members, some may participate more than once, but one person shouldn’t answer all parts of the Final, unless they are a one-person team.

For each part of the question, have your team member sign into the Last Call Trivia app with the live show code and your team name. The question will be read aloud and then the participating team member will have about 5 seconds to type in and send their best guess.

  • If the answer is the #1 surveyed answer, then your team gets 5 points. If your answer is the #2 surveyed answer, then your team gets 4 points, and so on down to the #5 surveyed answer receiving 1 point. If an answer is not in the top 5 surveyed answers, then your team will lose 2 points. If you do not turn in an answer, your team will receive 0 points for that question.

Answers will be announced once all five parts are finished, and then final scores and winners will be announced.

Last Call Music Bingo Format

The host will play about a minute of a song. If that song appears on your Bingo card, mark it off with an X, circle, checkmark or symbol of your choice, making sure the song name is still readable.

  • The host will also announce the title and artist after each song clip, in case you don’t recognize it or can’t remember the song title.

When a player is the first to mark five songs on a single Bingo card in a row, column, or diagonal line, they will yell out BINGO!

  • The host will double check the song titles and award a prize.

When a player is the first to achieve a Double Bingo, which is two rows/columns/diagonals, they’ll yell out BINGO!

  • The host will check the card and award a prize.

When a player is the first to achieve a Blackout, where all of the spaces on a single board have been covered, they’ll yell out BINGO!

  • A final check will occur, and another prize will be awarded

Every so often, the host will also tell you that the title of the song just played corresponds to a number on the Lingo puzzle at the bottom of the Bingo card.

  • Fill in the first letter of the exact song title, keeping in mind that it may begin with a word you weren’t aware of, for that corresponding number.

  • When you think you have solved the phrase, yell out LINGO and the host will check to see if you have identified the Lingo correctly, and award a prize.

Important Note: If at any point a Bingo or Lingo is incorrectly shouted, the game will continue from where it left off. In case of a tie where two players shout Bingo or Lingo simultaneously, the player with the most total spaces covered on their board will win the tie.
