Q: I've got a technical issue. What's the best way to get support?
A: If you're having technical issues with Buzztime Trivia on Facebook, we are here to help! You can contact us by emailing
Q: Why do I get a white or black screen every time I try to start the game?
A: The white or black screen is often caused by not having the latest version of Adobe Flash installed in your browser. Version 10 or later is required.
If you have the latest version of Flash installed but are still getting the white or black screen, please let us know by emailing
Q: It's freezing when I try to enter or start the game. Why?
A: There can be many reasons why this is happening, so the fastest way to get to the root cause is to try a few tests in this order:
- Are you able to play the game on a different computer? If yes, then we know it's something specific to your computer.
- Are you able to try the game using a different browser? Almost all Windows PCs have Internet Explorer installed on it, so can you try it with that? If you're already using IE, how about testing it with FireFox? If you can play Buzztime Trivia in one browser but not another, then the cause is probably browser-specific.
- Have you tried clearing your browser's cache?
Depending on what your root cause was, one of these steps should get you going. If one of the steps above resolved your issue, please tell us what your symptoms were and which step worked for you by emailing
