No matter if it’s part of a presentation, as a break, to improve learning or just as a fun thing, sometimes you want to add a bit of energy in the room. Mentimeter Quiz Competition lets participants compete against each other to bring out the competitive spirit and create a fun experience! It's great to use when you want to create a fun, learning-intense and energetic competition, and define the correct answer(s).
Pro tip: Have several Quiz questions in one presentation to aggregate the score and reveal the final winner at the end! 🎉
What is a Quiz Competition?
The Quiz Competition is built up by 3 components:
The Lobby is where the participants join, get assigned an avatar and enters their nickname for the Quiz Competition
Once you start the first question, the game is on! The participants try to answer the question before the time is up, and correct answers are rewarded between 500-1000 points depending on the settings you’ve chosen (see below)
The Leaderboards show the top 10 participants between questions, to further encourage the competitiveness! The last Leaderboard of the Quiz Competition reveals the overall winner!
There are two different types of Quiz questions:
Select Answer Quiz
Here, you give the participants predefined options to choose from – just like in a Multiple Choice Question.
Type Answer Quiz
In this Quiz, participants need to type the answer themselves instead of choosing from a list.
There are also two different modes for each Quiz question:
- Faster answers get more points; participants try to answer as fast as they can and are rewarded between 1000 and 500 points for a correct answer, depending on when they submit their response 🐇
- All correct answers get 1000 points; for situations where you want to promote accuracy rather than speed! 🐢
Change the time to answer if you want - either to give the audience some more time to think, or to add an extra stress element to make sure they stay on their toes...
How to play the Quiz Competition
How to start
To start the Quiz Competition, press the "Present" button. Participants then get assigned an avatar, get to enter a nickname, and you will see them show up in your Initial Lobby.

The Initial Lobby
During the game
The question appears and the participants need to answer before the countdown ends. Wrong or no answer gives zero points, and correct answer gives 500-1000 points depending on your settings. When the countdown has run out, or everyone has voted, the results and the correct answer will be shown. The audience can also see whether they have answered correctly on their phones.
