Spice up your Super Bowl Party - host a Challenge!

Want to serve up a little friendly competition this year to go along with your wings, chips, and pizza?  Create your own Super Bowl Challenge just for your party!

It's a pretty simple process:

  1. Create your own custom challenge (within minutes)
  2. Give out the URL to everyone at your party and let them make their picks - either on a computer, or right on their phone/tablet
  3. Enter the results after the game and the challenge will be scored automatically - see how everyone stacks up!
For step 1, we've created a template called "Super Bowl Party Picks" you can use to really simplify the process.  As always, you can use it exactly how it looks, or make any customizations you want (change the weight for certain questions, add new questions, delete questions, etc.).  Just go to and click the Create Challenges tab, select the Create from Template option, and create your challenge in a matter of seconds.

If you want more info on how to create and manage your challenge, we created this overview to help.

Want to see what your challenge will look like?  Here's a sample using our template, which you can also view below.  Feel free to go ahead and take this challenge yourself if you want to see what the experience is like.

Enjoy the Big Game!

Oscar Fever

It's Award Show season, and Oscar Fever seems to be sweeping the nation.

Why not create your own Oscars Challenge for your group of friends, family, or co-workers?  We've made it easy for you by creating a template that includes all of the categories and nominees.

Just go to and click the Create Challenge tab, select the Create from Template option, and select the 2014 Oscars template.  You can create your own challenge in about 30 seconds, and then just send the link out to anyone you want to join.  Then just sit back, grab the popcorn, and enjoy the show as you see who in your group really knows Hollywood best.

Do you have a blog or website?  Host the challenge on your own site as a Premium Challenge for your readers or customers.  Here's an example of what it would look like (for the Top Categories Only option):

Good luck picking the winners!

Introducing Premium Challenges - hosted on your own website!

We understand many users want to host a challenge on their own website or blog, instead of just giving out a link for participants to take a challenge.

Now you can!

Today we are introducing Premium Challenges.  These work just like regular challenges, except that you can embed them directly on your own website or blog via an iframe.  Your readers/customers can take the challenge without ever leaving your site.

This is extremely easy to setup.  We just provide you a line of code that you can copy and paste onto your site and voila - you have a challenge on your site.  You can even customize the size of the window so it best fits your site.

Here are a couple examples of how this could look on your site:

Join our Predict the Score Challenge, sponsored by [your awesome sponsor]!  Just login via your Facebook or Google account below and make your predictions.  Whoever gets the closest will win [your fabulous prize].

Or let's say you need it to fit within a smaller window...
