What Fans Are Saying

Craig, Lexington KY

"I just love the concept that gives us sport enthusiasts more control and the excitement and anxiety levels are off the charts. THANK YOU!!"

Dan, St. Louis MO

"After getting killed by some upsets in the first and second rounds, the ability to change winners really kept me interested in both my bracket and the tournament."

Annie, Boston MA

"It was great. I watched so many more games. Made it so much more fun and I was still in the running because everyone was able to switch teams. Brilliant way to do it."

Josh, Detroit MI

"It was pretty cool having a group of friends to compete against and having no clue who would win until the Final because of the format of the game"

Rebecca, Louisville KY

"It was great to get notification that a team I picked was losing and I wasn't home. Made it easy to jump in and change a pick if I wanted to."

Daniel, Seattle WA

"It changes the whole game in an awesome way! Those last few minutes are so exciting because I have to decide whether or not to switch."
