Only one phone can be used per team!

You can play alone or create a team of up to six people.

1 ticket = 1 phone = 1 team = 1-6 players

 

For example:

Two Families Competing

The Smith Family (Team Smithie) wants to compete against their neighbors The Jones Family (Team JonesFTW). Each family purchases 1 ticket. The Smith Family plays together on dad’s phone. The Jones family plays together on their daughter’s phone.

Kids Vs. Parents

The Lee Family want to play kids vs. parents. They purchase 2 tickets for 2 teams: Team LeeKids and Team LeeRents.

Friends

A group of 3 friends wants to play against each other. They purchase 3 tickets and create 3 one-person teams: Team Energy Superstar, Team CarbonCrusher, and Team NoMoreCO2. Each friend plays on their own phone.

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

Players of all ages are welcome; children under the age of thirteen should play on a team with an adult.

 

Absolutely! Create a “1-person-team” in order to play directly against your friends, family, and other solo players and teams across the state.
