Hashtag Quiz is your all-in-one solution to entertaining guests with exciting pub quiz games, bingo, and card games. Read on to find out how to get started.

Ready for Action

To get started all you need to do is sign up for one of our amazing subscriptions. Once you’ve done that, you will receive a confirmation email with your login info. From here all you need to do is go to HQ.FM, log in to a ‘Host’ account using your login details, and you’re ready to build and host quizzes and other games.

Our software is community-driven with every user not only gaining access to a wide selection of game modes for quizzes, bingo, and Higher or Lower, but also the Hive. The Hive is an invaluable database where you can build quizzes, look for interesting questions, discover new topics created by other members, and even share your own questions or quizzes.

Set Up Your Quiz Games

Now you’re ready to build a game it’s time to look at all the options available to you. Our basic paid subscription gives you access to host games for up to 99 players as well as access to the Hive, and a variety of game formats. This includes pub quizzes (either printed out for pen-and-paper games or digitally transmitted via wifi to your players’ smart devices), a selection of bingo games, and even Higher or Lower.

Within each category, you can tailor games and rules to your needs. Want a knock-out style game? Try Killer. Want to raise the stakes and give negative points for wrong answers? Evil is for you. Or keep it casual and familiar with the original multiple-choice format that everyone loves. Why not combine all three and create a game full of twists and turns?

All of our games are easy to manage with clear instructions and controls that allow you to see exactly what your players see before sending it out. We also have a range of tools to make hosting that little bit easier including a narrate question reader, Stripe compatibility for selling tickets, and video delay function for streamers. All of this and more is available with a simple subscription to Hashtag Quiz. If you’d like to give us a try before you buy, then why not grab a free trial. This trial gives you access to all of our quiz-making tools and even allows you to have a practice run with a couple of mates.

Go and Have Fun!

Now you’ve signed up and created your game, it’s time to play a game. For pen-and-paper quizzes, it’s simply a case of printing out answer sheets and handing them out to your players. For a game run on digital devices all your players need to do is log in to a game on HQ.FM using your unique game code and they’re ready for the fun and games.

If you’re looking to host a bingo game and want to print bingo cards, you will need to buy them separately. We have an easy solution right here. Simply follow our Bingo Tickets Link and you’ll find everything you need for a great game of bingo. 

Hashtag Quiz is versatile and can be used for a variety of events be it a local pub quiz, a stream on Twitch, or a big-screen event at a fundraising event.

Please note; only hosts can access all the features included with a subscription. If you want 

to join a game as a player please log in using a player account using the details supplied to you by the host.
