How old do I have to be to play?

Players of all ages are welcome but you must be at least thirteen to create an account; children twelve and under should team up with an adult.

Can I play on a team?

You can play forward individually or on a team. Currently, only one device/account can be used per team.

1 account = 1 device = 1-6 players

For example:

Two Families Competing | The Smith Family wants to compete against their neighbors The Jones Family. Each family should register an account on Forward and join the game. The Smith Family (Team Smithie) plays together on dad’s phone. The Jones family (Team JonesFTW) plays together on their daughter’s phone.

Kids Vs. Parents | The Lee Family want to play kids vs. parents. They create two accounts: Team LeeKids and Team LeeRents.

Friends | A group of 3 friends wants to play against each other. They each register their own account and play on their own devices.

To see who’s winning in each of these cases, players can look at the game leaderboard to see which user ranks higher.
