    Have you ever been in a restaurant when someone at a neighboring table plays video/audio on their phone as if they are at home? A special kind of rage ensues.

    Smartphones have made conducting a fair trivia show FAR more difficult. If everyone participating is within my eye sight, not a problem. And the regulars would never cheat.

    Personally don't mind leaving my phone alone for hours. But so many folks simply won't.

    Hadnít thought about your trivia contest but I would suppose if you do shoutouts the knowledgeable participants would win over the cheaters?

    I try my best to forget mine on occasion but since my hearing aids are tied to it that can be a problem.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    Cheaters never win, they're easy to catch. One time the bonus question was to name the current presidential cabinet offices. A team turned their answer sheet in with them listed correctly in alphabetical order. Clearly googled and copied.
