Triviador is the first mass multiplayer strategy-trivia game! and you can play it on Facebook.
Triviador is an exciting, fast paced 3 player trivia game with a strong strategic element. The setting is a cross between the dark ages and the great period of world exploration, all played upon a world map divided into 15 territories.
The object is to win the most territories and the points that go with them. Victory depends upon the player with the most points – won by facing off in a 3 player battle of trivia and speed.
The game begins by awarding each player with a random territory on the map. A 3-tower castle is slid onto the map for each player in red, green or blue. From here the game enters its “Conquest” phase of 4 challenges, where the remaining territories are chosen by the 1st and 2nd place winners of the 4 questions; The 1st place is allowed to choose two territories and the 2nd is allowed to choose 1. The loser of each challenge is given one random territory – usually not an ideally strategic placed one.
In this phase it is important to grab territories directly next to your 3-tower base castle, as well as your two opponent’s castles. This is because in order to attack an opponent’s castle or any other territory, you must own the territory next to the one you are attacking. So by grabbing the territories surrounding your own castle, you protect it in the first few rounds of the next phase. Likewise, by grabbing territory next to your opponent’s castle, you can attack it from the very beginning. When the Conquest is complete, all territories are occupied and the battle begins!
In the 2nd part of the game, the “Battle” phase, there are 4 rounds of 4 questions each. Each of the 4 rounds corresponds to the opening Conquest rounds. Here, the 1st place winner of each of the Conquest challenges is allowed to attack first in the first and second questions of the corresponding round they won in the Conquest.
Example: If the red player won round 2 in the Conquest phase, they will be allowed to attack first, during the first two questions of round two in the Battle phase. The second place player from each conquest is allowed to attack on the third question of the round and the last place is allowed to attack once, at the very end of the round they lost. Again, during the first 3 rounds, a player can only attack an opponent with whom they share a border (unless they have earned the Magic Wings Booster).
When a player is attacked and they lose the question, the attacking player wins that territory and the point value of the territory (begins at 200 points). If the player successfully defends their territory, they keep their territory and gain 100 points for winning the question. If the territory is a Base Castle (3-tower castle), the attacker must successfully win 3 questions in order to win the territory – but this also means they win ALL of that opponent’s territories and all of the points with them. The defeated is then out of the game completely.
After varying numbers of Adventures, different “Boosters” are awarded to aid in the challenges. These allow things like “help” with the questions, choosing of question subjects and distant attacks of territories that are not on the attacker’s borders. There are also random “Treasure Chest” opportunities that when opened, contain surprises such as boosters, gold and more adventures.
Although it is ideal to attack and win the opponent’s base castles, Adventures often progress all the way to the end with all base castles more or less in tact. The victors win by narrower margins, simply by winning the most challenges. If the challenges are over and there is a tie (called a “draw”), there will be a face-off to break the tie and determine all 3 places.
When the game completes, your place is announced and your points awarded. You are also shown what your ranking is percentage-wise for the week, with players all across the world. At the completion of your first game of the week (which runs from Wednesday to Wednesday – called the “Weekly Challenge”) you will be taken to a world map with 15 treasure chests to choose from. You will be allowed to choose from between 5 and 15 of them for various prizes such as boosters, Adventures and gold.
