Unlimited Possibilities

Theme Song Trivia is ideal for businesses looking to train their employees. Instead of theme songs, load pre-record audio questions. Hints will show after set intervals. We're also happy to help you create a question set. For a flat hourly-rate, if you provide us with all of your media, we'll write the hints and create the gameshow file for you!

Best part is that it never gets repetitive! You can play the same game a thousand times and get different results each time, depending on how big your collection of music is. It doesn't get boring. We need more games with these qualities.

Kristi Hudson

Incredible party game! Encourages people to think quickly and offers a great sense of teamwork. Brings back memories sometimes too, depending on what songs you play and who is present in the room. Just an amazing amount of fun.

Daniel Lowe

I'm such a sucker for games like this. Bring over a few buddies and you're set to have a good time for the night. Everyone can contribute and take something away from it. It's the perfect game for a crowd.

Edward Walton

I can't get over how much fun this game is at events. Everyone loves it. I hold parties every so often and I can't remember the last time we didn't play this at one of them. It's a huge hit with everyone I know and I completely recommend it to anyone who's considering it. Trust me, if you like having fun with your friends and family, it's worth it.

Lynette Meyer

Interesting idea for a group-oriented game! A lot of fun for kid and adult parties alike. You can really shape it in terms of content as well - it runs off of your own personal music library, after all. Highly recommended to own for anyone and everyone of all ages.

Lewis Perry

Good game to play with family or friends (or both). You can play it in a party setting or just between a small number of people. The game itself is very versatile which I just love. You can customize it to suit absolutely any group of people.

Theresa Grant

Awesome. Great game to have handy whenever I have people over for whatever reason. Everyone always enjoys it and has a real great time. Sure beats standard old board games in my opinion!

Harold Adams

This game is just heaps of fun. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking to have a good time with a few friends. It gets pretty intense the more people are playing! You can't really deny the price, either. $10 for a genuinely good time seems about right to me.

Pam Lloyd

It kind of reminds me of Scene It, but more personalized. I love it. I wish I'd discovered it sooner. It's a HUGE crowd pleaser at parties.

Ana Swanson

This game is just so much fun. My friends and I play it all the time. You can play it with three people or thirty people if you wish, it doesn't matter. A good game to fall back on when group numbers are an issue. A simple and effective solution for when you're stumped on party games or just entertainment in general. 10/10!

Theme Song Trivia has two modes. "Host mode" allows you to play the game on two monitors: the administrator/host window on one screen, and the game window on another.

  1. Connect an external display.
  2. Ensure "Video Mirroring" is turned off in System Preferences->Display.
  3. Go into the Preferences window and enable "Host Panel". The Host Panel shows the answer, all hints, and has options to award points to teams.
  4. Choose the screens for which the game and host panel should appear on (commonly 1 for the game window and 0 for the host panel if two displays are connected).
  5. Create a new game!

When you first launch Theme Song Trivia, a "Trivia Set" must first be created.

  1. Choose "New Trivia Set..." from the "Game" menu.
  2. Choose a name for the music set you plan to create (ie. 80s TV Shows) and click "Create".
  3. Drag and drop .mp3s or other audio files into the list on the left, or press the plus (+) button at the bottom.
  4. Click the "Sync with Server" button on the toolbar to have Theme Song Trivia contact our web server to attempt to autofill some hints.
  5. Visit each song that was just added and enter any blank hint fields.
  6. When done, click the "Save" button and close the window.
  • Drag and drop files into Set Editor.
  • Show iTunes artwork for currently playing song on the background.

Use Theme Song Trivia to create a game based on your existing music collection or download theme songs from the web and relive the nostalgia of your childhood! Create hints for each song which will be revealed as the countdown lowers. Host an unlimited number of teams and play on the computer or mirror your display over to a TV!

  • If you close the main window when in full-screen, the menubar will not reappear on Mac OS X.

The 40 second countdown timer will begin. As soon as a player knows the answer, they will buzz in using the "Award" button. If no one has figured it out, a new hint will be revealed every 10 seconds if available. Depending on the option specified in the Preferences window, you may or may not be asked to enter the song name. Punctuation, articles (ie. the, an, and), and upper/lowercase are irrelevant, but spelling is key! The game ends when all songs have been guessed, but can be ended early or paused using the controls at the bottom of the game window. Ending a game early will still congratulate the team that has the most points. It is also possible to add new teams while the game is in progress.

  1. Choose "New Game" from the "Game" menu.
  2. Click the plus (+) button to add new teams, and specify their names. Then, click Next.
  3. Select a previously made trivia set.
  4. Click Begin!
