XCOM have now designed and implemented 2x ‘Trivia Challenge’ microsites for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation. The first one, in early 2016, offered entrants the chance to win a $10,000 Gold Coast Holidays voucher.
We have just recently launched the 2nd version of the competition, in February 2017, especially for Australian schools. Schools around the country can now compete for fun against one another - educating students on the Commonwealth Games and the Gold Coast.
This latest site features the current Commonwealth Games mascot, Borobi, both visually and through the use of voiceover commentary.
The first trivia challenge was a huge success, and the decision was made to modify and relaunch the microsite in 2017 as a fun education tool for Australian school aged kids.
Students answer as many questions as possible in a 60 second time limit, and results are displayed in a leaderboard, which can be filtered by State, School and Year/Grade. XCOM have also added a ‘training mode’ for younger students to practice, without the time limit and leaderboard rankings.
