BuzzIn can be enjoyed by all, but you need to be an adult to play.

You don’t need to be an adult to watch our live programming on Twitch, or most of our videos on YouTube, but you must be 18 years or older to create a free BuzzIn ID, apply to become a contestant, and to join our Discord.


Frequently Asked Questions

New BuzzIn

What's the difference between old and new BuzzIn?

The BuzzIn relaunch is a new beginning in every way. Players will begin at BZN$0 and will need to work their way to the top once again. They’ll find it will be trickier this time, as the economy has been balanced, and BZN$ is more difficult to obtain.


Players can only acquire BZN$ through gameplay, giveaways, and select other means. When you sign into the website, attend events, and join our community, you earn Gems.

What else is new?

Beginning this year, BuzzIn itself is one big season, which means it will come to an end. Once BuzzIn launches, games and shows will run through the first few months of 2022, and around May, BuzzIn’s first season (2021-2022) will come to a close, and we’ll go dormant again for a few months.


During this off period, we’ll improve our games and get ready to launch brand new ones, so it won’t be like previous breaks. You’ll still hear from us, but just not as often. We’ll still be taking a summer break, and you should too!


Later in 2022, BuzzIn will start its second season (2022-2023), and this cycle will repeat each year for each new season. This lets our team take the break they deserve and allows us to focus several months at a time on developing new games and improving old ones for you.

Is anything carried over from the old BuzzIn?

No. This is a fresh start.

Is there a new Discord server?

Currencies & Prizes

What are the points for?

BuzzIn games are played for points and prizes, not real money. Contestants play for BuzzIn Dollars (BZN$), a virtual currency that can only be earned on BuzzIn. You can’t buy more BZN$, but you can spend BZN$ you’ve earned on prizes and goodies in the BuzzIn Store.


You also earn a second currency, called Gems, when you interact with the BuzzIn website, play BuzzIn games, join the in-studio audience, compete in community quests, earn rewards, and so on.

What are BZN$ for?

When you play BuzzIn games, live or not, you win BuzzIn Dollars (BZN$). BZN$ are what players strive to obtain on BuzzIn, as your BZN$ total determines your spot on key leaderboards, but your BZN$ can also be used in the BuzzIn Store to purchase prizes, like Steam Games. There is no limit to how much BZN$ you can earn per day.

What are Gems for?

Gems are much easier to earn than BZN$; you can earn more by signing in each week, attending events in-studio, and being active in our community. You can also some transfer Gems to other players, and use up to 100 Gems in a single BuzzIn Store purchase. However, you can only earn up to 500 Gems per day.

Click here to learn how to earn more Gems.

Do my BZN$ and Gems expire?

Any BZN$ you’ve earned will expire at the end of the current BuzzIn season, usually around May of the following year. We’ll hold end-of-season sales to give you as many ways as possible to spend it all.


Any Gems you’ve earned will also expire at the end of the current BuzzIn season.


Rewards that you’ve earned or unlocked, like accolades, badges, and quests, never expire. Once you’ve earned them, they’re yours forever!


Is BuzzIn free?

BuzzIn is non-profit and completely free. We do not run third-party advertisements, and you will never be asked for money.


If you would like to show your support for BuzzIn, 100% of donations are returned to the community through higher quality prizes or special giveaway events. You can anonymously track donations received by BuzzIn and see how they are used.

Can anyone create an account?

Everyone with a BuzzIn ID must be 18 years or older. You must also be 18 or older to join our Discord, be an in-studio audience member, or play BuzzIn games. If you are not 18 yet, we invite you to watch our live events on Twitch, and subscribe to us on YouTube, and when you turn 18, come join our community.

Can I apply to be a contestant?
Can I join the BuzzIn Crew?
Can I invite friends?
