How to Play Crowdini
What is Crowdini?
Crowdini is a question and answer game. We ask you to answer one question a day and give you points based on how your answer compares to the majority answer. At the end of the game the top 3 players with the most points splits 90% of the Prize Pool.
It is designed to be something you can do in less than a minute a day but hopefully sparks conversation and thought.
Answer the daily question.
- Multiple choice
- 2, 3, 4 or 5 answers
- Can be any category (i.e. Sports, Entertainment, Music, Tech, Science)
**A new question is asked at 10 am eastern daily.
Confirm your answer.
You have 3 confirmation options:
- Tap the green Lock me in button to confirm your answer
- Tap the red Choose Again button to reverse your current answer and answer the question again.
- Wait 10 seconds for your answer to be confirmed automatically.
**Once your answer is confirmed it is final and cannot be changed.
Come back tomorrow to see:
- Compare how you did against the majority
- Answer tomorrow's question
**We send you a daily results email.
How do I earn points?
Crowdini is a game. At the end of the game the player with the most points wins. There are 3 ways to earn points. Let's go over all three
Earn points by Answering Questions
Majority rules in Crowdini. Points are awarded to the answer with the most votes.
You receive the same amount of points as the percentage of overall votes your answer receives. So for this example:
- If you answered Houston Rockets you would receive 39 points
- If you answered San Antonio Spurs you would receive 60 points (before bonus points were applied)
Earn Bonus Points
On certain questions you can earn 100 bonus points if you choose the answer that actually occurs. Not every question is a bonus question. What to know about bonus questions:
- Only questions labeled Bonus have bonus points
- You earn an extra 100 pts if you choose the answer that actually occurs. If the answer you chose received 39% of the vote you would receive 39 points for answering and then 100 bonus points for choosing the answer that actually happened. That would give you 139 points total for that question.
- Bonus points are not awarded until the actual event completes (which could be days after the question is asked)
Earn points for Referrals
Each player has their own unique referral URL. You can earn 5 extra points for each new player you refer. Also the player you refer will earn 5 points. The maximum number of referral points is 25 per game. All conditions below must be met to receive referral points:
- The player has to be a new player
- The player has to complete their sign up AND
- The player has to answer at least 2 questions
