Trivia Minigame Fortnight

Overview

The Minigame Fortnight is an event hosted by the Pokemon Showdown! Trivia room from May 1 through May 15. During Minigame Fortnight, the room will regularly host trivia-based minigames, and the winners of these minigames (and, sometimes, participants!) will earn points. The users with the most points at the end of the event win, and will receive prizes (see Prizes section below). Please join the Trivia room to play or ask any questions you may have after reading this document! Good luck!

Hosting

All minigames that give points towards the Minigame Fortnight leaderboard will be hosted by the Trivia room’s auth team (auth are users with a +, %, @, or # in front of their username). Regular (i.e. non-auth) users will be allowed to host minigames, but these minigames will NOT award points—they’re just a bonus for fun.

Conclusion

Congrats, you made it to the end of the information document! We hope you have a fun time playing the minigames, and good luck to those who are trying to win!  ~Trivia Staff
