We are the #1 College Virtual Program with our streaming game show.
Virtual events are the current standard for college programming
Our virtual streaming game show is just the answer to your programming needs.
As classes have moved on-line and schools practice social distancing, college programmers faced the unpleasant task of canceling live events on campus and sending everyone home. But this new paradigm doesn’t have to be void of student engagement. It’s time to think in new directions to engage students.
Build a community with virtual programming!
We can help.
Our “Trivia Stream” live streaming game show is a live event game show, streamed from our studio, just for your campus. Specify a time, spread the word through your e-mail and social media, and we’ll put on a live game show just for your campus, complete with prizes, fun trivia questions from our bank of thousands of questions from our “Fast Action Trivia” shows, and we can even include “best practices and Covid-19 facts” to keep your students safe during these changing times.
Whole new show written just for the virtual space!
Unlike many shows popping up and calling themselves “virtual shows” this show was written from the ground up to tackle the unique nature of a streaming shows. We carefully structured it to retain viewers right up until the end, engage everyone in the audience, and make it extremely entertaining at the same time.
How does Trivia Stream streaming game show work?
A private URL and a QR Code will be sent to you to use to promote the event. This makes sure YOUR STUDENTS have an experience that is just for them. Our LIVE HOSTS engage and entertain while we ask questions and create unique audience interaction. As a question is asked, the quicker you answer, the more points you get, but if you get it wrong, you can lose points too! So be fast, but be accurate!
Each round is 10-12 questions long and a winner is announced at the end of each round. We have lots of surprises throughout the show to increase the fun, to keep students engaged and to retain viewers right up until the end! We verify the winner is a student at your school and e-mail them an Amazon gift card.
Live stream game show hosts interact with your students.
Our live host keeps the show fun and entertaining and helps put on a show – not just play a game. Remember, this is a live streaming game show put on just for your students. As with our live “in person” shows, the hosts are the heart and soul of the show and we’ve developed ways to interact with the streaming game show audience in unique and fun ways. The show operates on many levels with live questions being answered by the host, while he’s giving shootouts to those in the chatroom, plus there are sidegames taking place in the chatroom as well.
Each show will last about 60 minutes to 75 minutes. Each round your students will have a new chance to win Amazon.com gift cards – so they’ll hang out and play the whole time. There’s even a chat room to help students feel more a part of your school’s community and there is a separate chatroom host to pepper help get the conversations started and to help with tech support.
The cost is quite affordable and every show is just for your school. We’ll have a variety of options available that include discounts on multiple events, credits on future events (to help you manage your budgets) and a variety of topics from general trivia to specific learning topics. You get to choose!
What we offer is a unique, one-time event where your students can engage, participate and potentially win some much needed prize money!

These are just a few colleges who've hosted Trivia Stream - The Virtual Game Show
What schools are saying about Trivia Stream
WHAT A BLAST! We had 28 students (very good for our events, and being a small campus). And it was awesome seeing them using the chat, laughing with Gus, just having fun. Excellent event. CANNOT wait for the 26th (next show).
"The virtual trivia show was engaging and educational. Thank you to the ToGoEvents team for the amazing event! It was very professional, organized, and fun."
(Hosted show for Sexual Health and Awareness")
Thank you and your entire team for putting on a fantastic event for our students! This entire process was so effortless and stress free. The students were really engaged; I think they appreciated doing something outside of the typical "zoom and kahoot" events. All in all, it was a refreshing change, and I can't wait for the next event!
You are free to quote any of that, I meant every word! 🙂
"Putting on the Virtual Game Show with Game Show To Go INC was a seamless process. The staff was great to work with and was happy to accommodate all of our needs. Cleveland State students really enjoyed Gus, the host, and their crew did an amazing job of broadcasting a high-quality show and keeping the chat room lively. Lastly, the built-in prize pack made it even better! I would highly recommend Game Shows To Go for any college programming board looking to put on an interactive event for their students."
"Thank you, Gus, and the whole ToGoEvents Team for being so flexible with us for our welcome week activities! It was so much fun and I heard nothing but awesome feedback from my staff and students. Again, I look forward to having you back on campus real soon!"
"The Trivia Stream was great! The students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it was a real high-quality experience. I personally thought Gus, CJ, and the whole team were hilarious and connected with the students really well, both through the game show and the chat room!"
"Thank you again for hosting Trivia Stream for Fitchburg State University! I was watching the show, and loved the interaction you and your colleagues had with the students. I think those who attended really felt they were once again engaging with the community, which is incredibly important during these times."
"Game Shows To Go were wonderful to work with to plan two virtual trivia nights! These events are well done, fun and have received great feedback from students - after the first one there were many requests for another trivia night. I expect that we will plan additional events with them in the future!"
"The students on my campus have been raving about how much fun the trivia nights have been! The game was so much more interactive and engaging than I expected! It was great having both the traditional trivia game as well as chat challenges so there were more opportunities to engage and win. The team at To Go Events was professional, easy to work with, and well organized."
It was amazing!! We held this event during COVID-19, and it was by large, the most attended event. The game host was AWESOME and engaged, the chat room personnel was quick and responsive, and the students kept reiterating how great this event was. We will definitely look at bringing them back! If you are considering an event to host, stop here!!!
"The Trivia stream was an absolute hit among our students. It performed beyond our expectations because of the interaction with the host and the special messages in between rounds. Thank you and your team so much for putting this on during a time of virtual programming!"
Trying all the ways I can to engage our students. I think this one has been the most fun. I saw To Go Events post this virtual game show over a month ago and knew we had to do it for our students. It was a way to bring students together to connect and have some fun. Prizes were won. New friendships formed. Fun was had. Thankful for CJ, Kim and Gus...I’ve known them for years and trust what they do. They fully understand the importance of connecting with students while having fun. Thank you for thinking outside the box and putting on a show. #tcctrinityriver and the TCC Trailblazers had a blast.
Our students absolutely loved this trivia night! If you've ever played HQ, it's very similar to that; super interactive and engaging. We are constantly receiving requests on when we'll be having the next trivia night! Thank you Game Shows To Go! Very thankful to have found this virtual offering during this tough time!
Wow - this trivia team DELIVERS!! They went above and beyond my expectations, and whenever they host a trivia night the students and myself get so motivated and re-energized. Learning some new facts, virtually re-connecting with our friends in the chatbox, and the chance to win a little extra some (the prize) is the cherry on top. Host Gus - is FREAKIN' AMAZING - giving shout outs and announcing any upcoming events; plus, he stays connected with the chat group too and interacts with you from there too! Then there are a couple of folks within the chat, and they help the chatbox be fun and exciting by offering a chance to win there as well. Seems like a lot going on, NO WAY!, especially after being socially isolated for a bit, this is exactly what the doctor ordered.
"To Go Events is so easy to work with, they are very responsive and accommodating. They were even willing to adjust the length of their show for us so it would fit more nicely into our schedule. I didn't have to do anything but participate in the show after Gus got started, and the trivia stream was so fun, we even brought them back for a second show two weeks after the first one. Not only this but the host, Gus, is incredibly professional and makes the whole experience fun for everyone!"
"The Trivia Stream was great. The students were so appreciative of Gus and the whole To Go Events gang. We could probably do this event again even when we are not on a stay at home order. Thank you again for all you do for us and our students.
The whole process was so simple and fast. There were questions that everyone could answer.
It was a great time!!"
It was a great show, thank you! The students are (were) still raving about it after the event was over. It was a great experience for them.
On a personal note, it was the first time we were really able to get our students to come together and engage online, especially with grad and undergraduate students.
We were quite pleased with Trivia Stream! I hope to use them again very soon. Here are some of the things we experienced:
Hosted, professional game show. It looks and feels professional and makes it seem important and not something that was thrown together.
Chat Rooms-We were not expecting a chat room conversation, but there was much dialogue happening in the chat room. This engaged people even if they weren’t actively playing.
Engagement-We kept 95% of the students engaged in the process for over 70 minutes.
One student shared that while they hated being isolated, this made them feel connected.
Educational. One round of questions was about Coronavirus with answers taken from CDC website.
More than once, the host reiterated the importance of staying connected and sharing how much the University cared about them.
Prizes (the prizes are sent virtually from To Go Events). They play for Amazon gift cards which we felt would help some of our students who maybe were struggling a bit due to lost work, etc.
Personalized. They will make it look very much like your school with logos.
They have loaded in some special video messages from people around the country.
Everyone at To Go Events understands the importance of community building. They did a fantastic job with this.
This is a very high-quality event. They make it look easy, but they are making it work with four people, isolated in four different cities and two states.
This was our experience. We determined it to be worth the investment.
The show will last about 60-75 minutes. We can hit just about any time you need, so if you’re event needs to last exactly 60 minutes, we can make that happen.
How many people play?
Everyone plays! That’s the whole point. If you’re in the live stream, you’re in the game! And you’ve got just as good a chance as anyone does to be a winner. We’ve chosen the twitch.tv platform, because it can support huge numbers of players.
What ``hot button`` issues do you already have questions for?
Covid-19 Safety, awareness and fact-v-fiction
Alcohol and Drug Awareness
Black History Month
Safe Spring Break
Title IX Sexual Harassment & Discrimination
Hispanic Heritage Month
And we can create a custom show just for YOU and your specific teaching needs! (see tabs below for potential costs)
Can you customize questions?
Of course. Because this show is specifically for your campus, we can include questions just for your audience.
We need about two weeks to know what you want to be customized.
If we feel it’s a topic that we’ll be able to reuse, there is no charge for a single custom round of trivia. If it’s a topic that we don’t feel we’ll be able to use for other events (as a full round) there is a charge of $125 per round written.
We recommend only one or two custom rounds unless it’s a themed show that we already have ready to use.
You can even provide us the questions if you’d like. We can use ONE round of questions provided to us at no additional charge.
Is there a charge for customizing questions?
No. And Yes.
If it’s a round of questions that we already have in our bank, we can include it at no charge.
If it’s a topic that we feel we can reuse at future events we can create a single round for you.
If you need a full show customized, or more than one round customized with questions that are not already in our files and that we don’t think we’ll be able to reuse, there is a charge of $150 per round for writing. That includes the question, answer, 3 incorrect answers, entering data into our system, researching support material for the host, graphics for each question and everything that is needed for a question. Hint: It’s a lot more work than just writing a question. 🙂
A full, 5 round, customized show would cost an additional $750.
There is NO CHARGE for including ONE ROUND of questions that you’ve written (10 questions). Adding additional rounds of custom written questions can be added at $100 per round.
We do have a large bank of custom rounds already written, that can be included at no additional charge. You can pick ONE CUSTOM ROUND per show.
What kind of tech needs do you have?
Because this show is streamed via Twitch.tv from our studio in Austin, TX, there are no tech needs.
Students should have high-speed internet access for the best user experience.
Does this show include prizes?
You bet! That’s one of the things that gets students to participate – the allure of game show winnings.
Each college show includes a $300 prize package. Delivered via Amazon.com gift codes.
Do you offer discounts?
Yes. If you schedule more than one trivia night you can get a discount.
Schedule a Trivia Stream streaming game show now and a live, in person game show in the fall and recieve a discount.
Talk to our sales rep to see how we can fully benefit you.
How do we keep it to just our students?
We create a private webpage and a channel that is just for your school, which eliminates cross over from using the same channel for everyone.
However, if we have very short notice and can’t set up a channel just for you, we can use our regular channel and promote it just for your students.
The way we make sure that WINNERS are from your school is that they’ll have to provide us with a .edu e-mail address to claim their prizes. If there is further proof that you need – we’re happy to work with you.
What's this going to cost us?
We do have a set price for the show, however, we don’t post it publicly. Fill out a form or call CJ at 512-431-9579 or Brett at 737-218-0017 for details on pricing and options.
