Frequently Asked Questions

What is Better Off Inside?

Better Off Inside creates and curates fun social events for people to join while still staying inside during the coronavirus pandemic. Users can join fun team trivia nights with thousands of other members, participate in virtual game nights, happy hours, classes, book clubs, and much more. It’s a way to meet new people, hang out with friends and family, and preserve the community and connection while still staying safe and healthy.

Many of the events are global, meaning anyone can join regardless of city, but we also do city-specific events so that you can meet fun people that you can hang out with in person once this is all over.

How can I join?

It’s easy - just click “Join” or “Sign Up” on betteroffinside.com and enter a few details. Then you’ll receive curated fun virtual events on your website dashboard and in your email. And you can always specify which kinds of events you want to hear about!

How much does it cost?

Team Trivia is completely free! Many of the other events are as well, though some of the third-party events we curate may charge a small fee. We’re a small business focused on helping people meet other interesting people and find amazing communities in their cities - we hope everyone who enjoys themselves will give some of our other businesses (betteroffbrunching.com, betteroffbowling.com, etc) a look when this is over :).

How do I register for an event?

You can go to the event page by clicking on the menu “Find Events” and selecting the event, finding the event on the dashboard, or on another page.

Once you’re on the event page, just click “Register” and you’ll be able to register for the event if there’s room. Many events you can join as an individual, small group, or team.

I want to join, but it’s just me - can I still participate?

Absolutely! We love solo players or small groups! We have a chatroom using the Slack app for individuals to join, find teammates/teams, people to play games with, etc.

What equipment do I need to join?

Not much! Ideally if you have a computer with a webcam, but a smart phone should do the trick most of the time. Usually you’ll need to join a video chatroom like Zoom or Google Hangouts, but that’s pretty simple. See the guides and the question below for more info for more info!

How do I join or setup a video chatroom?

It’s pretty easy - you’ll just need to download the app (typically Zoom or Google Hangouts) on your computer or phone, then setup an account and coordinate with your team. We have guides in our “Learn More” section that you can click on to get a detailed explanation on how to do this.
