Quick Game: For those looking to try out the game and see the amount of fun it is. No prizes are awarded at this level and each game runs approximately 4 hours.
Every team starts at go and then follows their game board to the location specified. Random trivia and fun facts will be sent throughout each game. The first team to text the correct response back will earn their team a perk.
When you land on a certain event location your team will have the opportunity to purchase that location. You will be able to upgrade your locations so that you can collect more Rush Toll when others land on your location.
You will have the option to purchase locations from others if they’re willing to give it up. Every time you pass go your team will receive 500 RB.

You must stay at your location for the duration of the event at the location unless stated on the space.
