Shiken allows you to create your own live multiplayer game and invite friends to play against. This is great to events, live quiz nights with friends and family or live revision sessions with your exam revision squad to test your knowledge and make learning fun.

Hosting a Live Multiplayer Session

  1. Select custom revision from the mobile menu

  2. You will now be presented with a range of customisation options to create a play session

  3. Select Multiplayer from the menu

  4. Choose your desired question type

  5. Choose a subject

  6. [Optional] Filter by topics

  7. Select the Products from which you would like to practise questions

  8. Finally configure the play session including the number of questions and question time. Live multiplayer has fewer options than other play sessions to ensure the game runs quickly and smoothly.

  9. When you are ready click the Start Revision button

  10. This will take you to the Multiplayer Waiting Room

  11. You can invite friends to join your game by clicking the share icon in the top right corner of the waiting room. This will share an invite link.

  12. If you are screen sharing from your device or just want to share the code with friends in close proximity the room joining code is displayed at the top of the waiting room

  13. To join new players simply need to follow the shared link or enter the room joining code in the Join A Room box in Custom revision

  14. Once all invited players have joined the host should click Start Revision to play the game

  15. After each question players will see a leaderboard of scores and compete against each other to see who tops the leaderboard

  16. At the end of a Multiplayer Session players can see the podium and review the sessions analytics
