What Would They Know?


"What Would they Know?" is a trivia game, for 5 players, that consists of three rounds. It's not just about what you know, but what others don't.

Round 1

  • Round 1 consists of 5 questions
  • All questions will have at least 6 correct answers
  • Players will submit one answer each
  • Players will score 3 points for a correct answer but only if they are the only player to submit that answer

Spoiler: Example Question
Q: Name a month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar

P1: June
P2: Julember
P3: February
P4: June
P5: March

Players 3 and 5 will both score 3 points, Players 1 and 4 will score 0 points for submitting the same correct answer and Player 2 will score 0 for submitting an incorrect answer


Round 2

  • Round 2 consists of 10 questions
  • The questions will be traditional trivia questions with only one correct answer
  • Players will submit one answer each
  • Players will score 5 points if they are the only player to answer correctly, 4 points if they are one of two players to answer correctly, 3 points if they are one of three players to answer correctly, 2 points if they are one of four players to answer correctly, and players will score 1 point each if they all answer correctly.

Spoiler: Example Question
Q: Which month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar comes last?

P1: December
P2: November
P3: November
P4: Paris Hilton
P5: December

Players 1 and 5 will both score 4 points as they were the only two players to answer correctly. Players 2, 3 and 4 will score 0 points for submitting an incorrect answer


Round 3

  • Round 3 consists of just 1 question
  • The question will be a traditional trivia question with only one correct answer
  • Players will submit one answer each
  • Players will see the beginnings of 3 different questions, the player leading at the end of round 2 will choose which question the players will answer.
  • Players will then choose how many points they want to wager on answering the final question correctly. Players will double their wagered points if they answer correctly and lose their wagered points if they answer incorrectly.
  • The question will then be revealed in full and players will submit their answer.
  • Answers and wagers will be revealed and a winner will be crowned.
  • Yes this is Final Jeopardy, don't @ me, Alex Trebek don't sue me.

Spoiler: Example Round
End of Round 2 Standings

P1: 18 points
P2: 31 points
P3: 29 points
P4: 32 points
P5: 21 points

Player 4 is leading and so will pick from these 3 question previews

A: In which month of the Gregorian Calendar... ?
B: Which Impressionist painter was... ?
C: In which Asian capital city did... ?

Player 4 chooses question A

Question A in full:

In which month of the Gregorian Calendar is American Independence Day?

Answers

P1: July
P2: July
P3: July
P4: June
P5: June

July is the correct answer

Wagers

P1: 18 points
P2: 2 points
P3: 0 points
P4: 0 points
P5: 21 Points

Final Standings

P1: 36 points
P2: 33 points
P3: 29 points
P4: 32 points
P5: 0 points

Therefore P1 is the winner


Tiebreakers

  • If there a tie after rounds 2 and/or 3, a tiebreaker question will be played between the leading players to determine either who chooses the question for round 3 or the overall winner
  • Tiebreaker questions will have a numerical answer, the player closest will win the tiebreak, regardless of being over or under the correct answer
  • If players tie on a tiebreaker, another will be played until a winner is determined.

Spoiler: Example question
Players 1, 2 and 3 are all tied for the lead after round 3

Q: How many months make up a year in the Gregorian Calendar

P1: 13
P2: 9
P3: 10

P1 is closest to the correct answer of 12 and wins


Other Rules

  • The winner of each game will gain an automatic place in the next game, if they choose to accept it
  • Losing players will join the back of the queue for the following games, in their finishing order
  • A leaderboard of wins and points will be maintained
  • Players will have 24 hours to submit but I am happy to accommodate V/LAs if players let me know.
  • Of course, no collusion between players and no looking up answers
