Answering a puzzle question takes extra attention and accuracy as players need to place answers alternatives into the correct order. One mistake – and no points will be awarded! This is why this question type works great to increase difficulty of your kahoot, deepen focus, and vary session dynamics.

Here are a few ideas for incorporating it in a kahoot you’re preparing for your next training session or presentation:

Rank stats

Puzzles work great when it comes to ranking numbers and stats – for example, product prices, customer segment sizes, market shares, etc. You can add a puzzle both as a way to pre-assess knowledge and to test how well content was retained after your session.

Present market research

We recommend trying puzzle questions when you’re presenting market research. For example, get your audience to rank competitors by their market share.

Arrange events in chronological order

You can use puzzles to ask players to arrange events in chronological order. For example, you can incorporate this question into your onboarding training when you’re taking new hires through the company history.

Review processes

In types of training where precision is mission-critical, for example, compliance, policy or safety training, puzzles work great to review processes and arrange steps into the correct order.

Add to the product marketing mix

Puzzles will work great to describe step-by-step instructions of using your product. Create a kahoot for your customers and share it as a challenge as part of your product marketing activities.

Recap on important points in a presentation

As puzzles require extra attention, they can be very efficient to recap on the key points in your presentation and keep your audience focused, whether you’re presenting in person or virtually.
