After registering with the site, create your entry for the Heinz Big Game Challenge. Check the box to receive game emails. Select your favorite team to join the official group for fans of that team.
If you've received a group invitation via email, clicking the link in the email will also start the process to create an entry.
After you've created an entry, decide what group to join. Or create your own.
Groups consist of both official "Fans of" groups and user-created groups. A group may be a public group which does not require a password or a private group which may require a password.
Once you're in a group, you can begin inviting friends, family and co-workers to join. From within the Groups section, click the "Invite Friends" menu link and begin entering email addresses. If you've played in a group in previous seasons, you can simply check the box next to each former group member's name. It's that easy.
If you're not in a group, you can still invite your friends to join the game. Click the "Invite Friends" link from within your Entry.
Plus, you can invite your friends on Facebook by following the step-by-step instructions. It's very easy.
