Rules and Info

Rules

Here’s how to play Last Call Trivia.

 

General Rules

Last Call Trivia is specifically designed to be a spirited competition and NOT a school exam. Each show lasts approximately two hours and is filled with excitement, entertainment, and your favorite music between questions. Last Call Trivia also incorporates a distinctive point wagering system giving teams the ability to choose their own strategy, which in addition to a wide range of subjects and difficulty levels, ensures that every team has an equal chance to compete.

  • 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!

Best Practices For Theme Shows

  • Arrive early
    to get a table. There are usually many teams who show up and seating is first-come, first-serve.
  • Get your game materials
    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.

Questions And Answers

  • 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 Six Rounds. Each Round Contains Three Questions.

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 Four 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.

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.

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.

There Is One Theme Round.

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!

There Is One 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

Last Call Feud

The antithesis to Last Call Trivia, Last Call Feud is a play on the iconic television show. Like the show, you must identify the most popular surveyed answer for points. Unlike the show, our format can accommodate far more than two teams.

Last Call Feud’s format is 6 rounds of questions with 3 questions in each round. In between each round, there’s a bonus question, a halftime question, and, at the end of the game, a final question.

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.

There Are Four Rounds Of Questions. Each Round Has Five Questions.

There Are Two Bonus Questions Following Rounds 1 And 3.

There Is One Halftime Question At The Midpoint Of The Game.

There Is One Final Question At The End Of The Game.

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

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.

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

Last Call Music Bingo

Last Call Bingo

Sing along to your favorite musical hits. It’s easy to play and have fun. While listening and singing along to your favorite hits, cross off the song titles on your Bingo Card. Enjoy a unique mix of the top hits from a variety of genres throughout several decades. Each clip features one minute of the most memorable and fun parts of the song! You could win if you are the first person to get a Bingo, a Double Bingo, or a Blackout! There is even a prize for an additional, creative word puzzle for you to play called Lingo.

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.

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!

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

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!

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.

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.
