Got Questions? You’re not alone. Here are our FAQ’s:
1. What is Super Squares™ and IS IT REALLY FREE?
Super Squares™ is a FREE live score matching Mobile TV game show, combining a TV quiz show with the football squares game played by millions at office pools and parties. Super Squares™ is the game show you play when the game you’re watching takes a break. Add points to your Game Group Leaderboard each Game Break, to win prizes, cash or Gift Cards, and even a new car or power sport vehicle over the course of a tournament. And YES, the app is free and the Game Shows are free, too! All you pay… is ATTENTION.
2. I’m in the app, a football game is on, I selected it… but nothing is going on! What gives??
Super Squares™ Game Breaks occur during a 3 minute window BEFORE KICKOFF and IMMEDIATELY AT THE END OF A QUARTER OR GAME. So you only play Super Squares™ Game Breaks in small 3 minute “snacks,” all game long. When the football game is being played, watch the football game, and check the Super Squares™ app when there’s a big play or change in score. You can also check your Game Group Leaderboard, our Twitter feed, or visit Skyboxes of friends or VIP’s, to see how your Game Show score stacks up against them. But the actual 3 minute GAME BREAK is where you CHECK IN, REACT, and SQUARE UP, to gain points and climb the Leaderboard.
3. These prizes are huge – what’s the catch?
During official tournaments, Sponsors fund a significant portion of the prizes. Our patented method, and transparent business model, is the key to why we’re different, and how we can afford such massive prizes: YOUR PROVEN ATTENTION is the currency of a new world of rewarding advertising. And you deserve to be rewarded for engaging. It’s a Win-Win situation.
4. What do you mean by “Tournament?”
As we continue to refine our live game show app, and add new sports, we are rolling out single game, multi-game and multi-week Tournaments, designed to grow our audience and also gauge your feedback. Over the course of a Tournament, you’ll often see prize levels increase, and there will be a major prize awarded at the end of a Tournament. So, you can win prizes immediately after a Game Show, at the end of a Game Show Week, and at the end of a Tournament. The more often you play, the more you can win.
5. When are live Game Shows available to play?
The best way to learn about what live sporting events are available for you to Watch, React and Win, is to check the “Current Games” and “Upcoming Games” section of the App. You’ll be kept posted on our progress, and you may even be invited to test out other formats of Super Squares™ – so LOAD THE APP AND DON’T DELETE IT!
6. This is great – but I like other sports. Will you support more than football in the future?
You must be psychic. Yes, our patented Super Squares™ system has applications for ALL types of sports. As long as there are scores, player numbers, and stats, there’s a way to play Super Squares™ – we’ve even got versions for cricket! Look for hockey, then racing, basketball and baseball versions in the next 12-18 months.
7. Why do you need my mobile number and email address?
8. How will you contact me if I’ve won?
After every Game Show, you’ll be able to access the Winners’ List within the app and web site. Winners will be emailed with confirmation that they’ve won, and details regarding their prizes. Heck, we may even email, text or call you during a Game Show to give you something unexpected – including 15 minutes of fame! Grand Prizes are awarded after we contact you directly. For all prizes over $600, special rules and fulfillment requirements will apply. Smaller prizes are delivered generally via digital links in email, three to six weeks after winners are confirmed. Physical prizes may take longer, but generally no more than 8 – 12 weeks.
9. Should I tell my friends? And what is a “Buddy?”
Absolutely – once you register, that is! Be a Buddy – and tell a Friend! A Buddy is the EXISTING registered play who TOLD YOU ABOUT Super Squares. When you register, enter your Buddy’s email address or Screen Name, and they are your Buddy (forever!) and you are listed as their “Friend” in their Super Squares™ app. If you lost your Buddy’s email or Screen Name, you will have 48 hours to add their credentials. After that, it’s locked. Once YOU’VE registered, it’s YOUR TURN to be a Buddy. Use the app to tell your Friends to join, and use YOUR email or Screen Name when they join. Finally, look for special “Refer a Friend” promotions, where being someone’s Buddy provides YOU with a chance to win whatever someone your Friends wins. (NOTE: Buddy prizes are designed to thank existing players for referring their friends; if you found us on your own, then you don’t have a Buddy, and that’s OK too. Now go out and be someone’s Buddy!)
1. I want to learn more about how to play. Where are the rules?
The Super Squares™ web site has in-depth section on how to play. If you need more, you can check out the Official Rules, which will vary by promotions, sport, tournament and time of year. See the link at the bottom of this page.
2. Just give me the elevator pitch – what do I need to know to “Watch, React and Win™?”
It’s easier to play Super Squares™ than it is to explain it – but once you play, it’s an unforgettable experience. If you’ve ever played the “Football Squares” game at parties, you’re already familiar with the game. And the app does all the work – so relax!
Watch, React and Win really does simplify how to play – Watch the Sporting Event, React to Questions about the game and our Advertisers, and Win by scoring the most points in your Game Group, boosted by bonus points from matching your Super Square to the score of the game.
- CHECK IN before kickoff if possible. You’ll be placed in a 25 player Game Group, and predict the outcome of the game.
- Then, just pay attention to the live or replay game; you’ll be quizzed about the action on the field each Game Break.
- At the end of every quarter, the App will remind you to CHECK IN to the next Game Break.
- Pay attention to the Sponsors’ advertisements played in the app, so you can “Rate them,” and to do well when you REACT to our Quizzes at the end of each quarter.
- Earn bonus points if any of your 4 Super Squares combinations match one or both of the team scores.
- Then, after the quiz, SQUARE UP to receive a new Super Square to be scored next Game Break.
Repeat at the end of each Quarter: CHECK IN, REACT and SQUARE UP again.
The highest scoring Game Group winners at the end of the final Game Break win cash and prizes.
3. I don’t see all the points I thought I would earn from the last game break! What happened?
When you REACT by rating a commercial, or answering a Quiz question, your score is immediately credited. If you don’t see as many points as you thought, it’s because you may not have rated a commercial in time, or answered one or more question incorrectly. In order to claim points from matching Super Squares, you MUST Check In during the next Game Break, or you will forfeit them. So – don’t miss a Game Break, and don’t stop a Game Break in the middle, either. If you take a phone call that lasts too long, the 3 minute Check In window may close, and you’ll be out of luck.
4. I never seem to get a Perfect Super Square. Are you sure they are randomly generated?
Super Squares™ are evenly and randomly distributed to all people within a Game Group. In the long run, you have a 1 in 25 chance of claiming a Super Square – so stick with it, it may take several games before you see that elusive Perfect Super Square. By the way – you have about a 1 in 3 chance of claiming a Partial Super Square, and they add points quickly, too!
5. Where are my friends? I’d like to play against them – is that what a SkyBox is all about?
Game Groups are created immediately and automatically when you join a Game Show. If your friends join at the same exact time, there’s a chance one or more may be in your Game Group. But to reduce collaboration (and increase competition), we don’t pair you with your buddies in Game Groups.
BUT – check out our private “SkyBox” feature. You can invite friends to join you in a private leaderboard by creating a Sky Box and sharing the password with your friends. Or, you can join someone else’s Sky Box. You can be a part of two Sky Boxes in a game, in addition to the Game Group where you are competing for official points and prizes. Look for special VIP SkyBoxes, hosted by our media partners. You’ll get to mingle with your favorite radio and Twitch personalities, and even participate in special contests against them from time to time.
6. There’s a lot to watch in a sporting event – what should I focus on?
Just like watching our commercials in the app, relax and focus on what’s important. Major events, plays, disputes, records, penalties, scoring results – you know, the stuff that draws you to sports in the first place. We WON’T ask silly questions about minutiae – like “What color T-shirt did Jimbo Walker wear on the sidelines?” Think “Big Picture” and you’ll do fine.
7. I swear I answered a question correctly – but I think the app says it was wrong. What can I do?
We don’t reveal specific answers in the Game Breaks, so perhaps you did get the answer correct, but got another question incorrect. At the end of the Game Show, the app will reveal to you the correct answers to all of your Tie-Breaker predictions and every Quiz question. Either way, decisions are final, and in the rare event we do make a mistake, we sincerely do apologize. We scrub all of our questions carefully and try hard not to make mistakes – but they may happen.
1. Can I change my Screen Name, or my personal settings?
Currently, Screen Names must be unique, clean, and unchanging. Birthdays and Full Names cannot be edited for security reasons. We DO support changing your phone number, email address, and physical mailing address.
2. Somebody changed my Screen Name! Why?
It could have been us – perhaps your Screen Name was deemed to be profane, confusing, or used a trademark of another company? We reserve the right to modify Screen Names in such an event. If you want a new one, why not drop us a note in the Contact Us section, and we’ll see if we can try again.
3. Can I start a Game Show late – I missed the first quarter?
Yes – it’s a party, glad you can make it! While you do reduce your chance of winning a Game Show (and lose the ability for Tie Breaker points) when you Check In late or miss a Game Break, you’re still eligible for Perfect Super Square entries every completed Game Break. And, a quick run of 2-3 Partial or Perfect Super Squares can certainly happen, and when it does, you could win big. As they say, “Better late than never!”
4. The app might be draining my battery – what should I do?
Don’t feel like you have to leave Super Squares™ open all of the time – the app will notify you when to Check In, so LEAVE ON NOTIFICATIONS. Keep a charger nearby, or, put the Game Show screen in the background. Your device will alert you when it’s time to Check In, React, and Square Up.
5. Why does the app only work in landscape mode?
Super Squares™ is essentially a TV game show on your phone. The game and near-HD quality graphics and commercials are designed to be viewed as would any TV program, and just like the most popular video apps (like Netflix) and immersive MMOG games (like Fortnight) the landscape (or horizontal) view is preferred.
5. What’s the state bird of Rhode Island?
You must be in the wrong FAQ section. Super Squares™ doesn’t ask trivial questions – and our prizes aren’t trivial, either! (By the way – it’s the Rhode Island Red.)
6. I’d like to contact you. Can I stop over?
We’re happy to speak with players, the press, investors, brands, and just about anybody. Just visit the Contact Us section, and tell us what you need. We will try to get back to you as quickly as possible.
