But that’s not all.
Consider the home page to be your very own HUDDLE headquarters. You can see how many trades are still awaiting your decision, and how many other fans you’ve yet to rate. This affects your trader rating, which is what those five stars next to “rating” denotes. Scroll down for more information about that.

On the bottom of the page, you’ll find the social aspect of HUDDLE, where you can find other fans either by searching by fan name or using your Facebook page. You can also invite friends from your contacts or through Facebook.
HOW TO PLAY YOUR CARDS.
PLAY is where your managerial skills will be put to the test. Select your eleven best to earn the most points. Fill your depth chart, take a chance on a young player, and cheer on your starting cards as they grind it out on the field. Cards can be played during games in real-time and earn PTS. The more cards you have the more options you will have within your starting eleven to increase your chance of earning big PTS.
When you tap PLAY, all your play cards will be displayed. To make someone active, tap and hold the specific player, then drag him into your card rotation. This can also be done by double-clicking the player. When the border of the empty card box is yellow, drop that player in. You will have to wait for a variable amount of time for the card to “warm up” before it starts earning PTS. So when you are deciding who to PLAY, be sure to think ahead.
You can change your player AT ANY TIME. However, you have a limited number of substitutions so you’ll have to choose wisely to maximize your PTS. When you run out of substitutions, you will not be able to swap any cards until enough time has passed that another PLAY regenerates.
Once you’ve finished, click TRIANGLE play icon in the top left corner of the screen to return to your fan homepage.
HOW PTS WORK.
First off, why earn points, or PTS? In addition to collecting and trading cards to complete sets, HUDDLE allows you to “play” your cards. If you play a card, and the player on the card performs well on the field, you will earn PTS. Earning PTS gives you bragging rights, it allows you to move up on the Leaderboard, it helps propel your team upwards on the Team Leaderboard, and occasionally, earning PTS unlocks big reward payouts, like Awards and even Coins!
Player cards will earn points based on the scoring system in HUDDLE. Scoring will only be applied to official league game.

HOW TO MAKE A TRADE.
There are multiple ways to access the TRADE screen in HUDDLE. To view outstanding offers, you’ll see TRADES in the middle of your home page.

HOW TO BUY CARDS.
Cards and coin packs are available via the STORE in HUDDLE. Card packs are available in various pack denominations for base cards.
Packs are purchased using coins. Spending time in HUDDLE, committing certain actions or participating in contests will help a fan earn coins. Coins may also be purchased via Apple’s App Store. In-app purchases are handled via Apple’s App Store. Fans will need Apple app store ID’s to make a purchase. Here are some tips for buying cards.
Know Your Series
Each pack of cards draws from a particular pool of player cards. These cards are released in series, like Series 1, Series 2, etc. Each pack will list which series of cards that it draws from.
Know Your NFS
Certain cards are “NFS,” or Not For Sale. This means the cards have yet to be released, or have already been released, put on sale, and their limited-edition run is now over. This means that NFS can only be obtained by waiting for it to be put on sale (for cards yet to be released) or through trading (for cards already released and sold out). You will not be able to obtain NFS cards from card packs in the STORE. This also applies for cards that are listed as LIMITED.
You may see cards that are listed as COMING SOON as well. That may be a sneak peek we’re giving you at something we’re planning on releasing shortly, or something that was previously in packs or used as an award that will return at a later date.
Know Your Inserts
Certain card packs come with special insert cards. These can be super-rare cards released in the Series. Most packs will list the special inserts that are included in the packs.
Know Your Odds
Certain packs might be more expensive than others. Usually, these packs are more expensive because they contain more cards, or odds for special inserts are better, or both. For example, a pack containing 3 cards will be more expensive than a pack containing 1 card. Additionally, a pack where a special insert card has a 1 in 10 chance of pulling it will typically be more expensive than a pack with a 1 in 100 chance of pulling that same insert card.
Know The Boards
Read up on TRADE TALK or in the article comments to understand what other users are pulling. Some packs might feel luckier than others.
Cards in HUDDLE are primarily used to earn PTS and help you climb the leader boards. Cards are also part of different collections of cards that help you earn awards. Awards allow a fan to earn coins and add items to their awards case.
HOW DO PLAYER CARDS WORK.
The player profile tells fans everything they need to know about that player in HUDDLE. You’ll notice some cards score differently than others. Each player has five base cards, each with a different color frame. The five levels represent a different multiplier. Base cards with a white frame do not have any added scoring to them.
Green = 1.2x scoring
Red = 1.5x scoring
Silver = 1.7x scoring
Gold = 2.0x scoring
Listed on a player profile is:
Rarity - Rarity lets a fan know how rare or special a player card is in HUDDLE. The more rare a card is the more valuable it is for a trade.
There are five rarity levels in HUDDLE:
Super Rare - most difficult to pull in card packets.
Scarce - second most difficult to pull in cards packs but easier than Super Rare.
Rare – third most difficult to pull in card parks but easier than Super Rare or Scarce
Uncommon - second easiest to pull in card packs but harder than common.
Common - easiest and most common cards to pull in card packs.
Card number – each card in HUDDLE will have unique card number.
Player performance and games chart - Players recent form and team games will be displayed via the player form chart. Fans can scroll their finger across the chart to view a player’s recent performances and PTS scored.
Avg match PTS - How many PTS a player scores per game this season, and how that ranks amongst all other players.
Season PTS - How many PTS a player has accumulated this season, and how that ranks amongst all other players.
Heat Index - Heat index is a performance-based player rating system based on a players in-app scoring.
How it works: A heat index algorithm is run on each player. It is based on the last 3 games that their team played. The points that the player earned in the most recent game is weighted 50%, the middle game, 30%, and the oldest game, 20%. This weighted average of daily points earned is their heat index number.
The heat index number is then translated into one of the four heat index categories:
HOT - players who are in recent great form and earning lots of points.
WARM - players who are in recent good form and earning a steady amount of points
COOL - players who are in recent decent form and earning some points
COLD - players who are in recent poor form and earning little to no points.
WHAT IS A WEEK IN HUDDLE.
Why does a “week” matter? A week is the primary unit of time for measuring progress on the Leaderboard and determining the PTS Chase. You can find the Leaderboard by tapping the FANS button on the toolbar.
When you view the Leaderboards you’ll notice there are actually four of them – one for your FRIENDS, one for fans of your favorite team, one for EVERYONE, and one that average all fans BY team. More on this in a separate article..
Each leaderboard can be filtered by THIS WEEK, LAST WEEK, or ALL SEASON. You can earn PTS from any official league game, but once a week we stop the week, tabulate PTS, and start the next week.
This happens EVERY TUESDAY at 7:00 AM ET. Be sure to check each Tuesday morning to see who “won the week.” Oh, and why is “winning the week” important? Not only does winning the week give you status, notoriety, rings and bragging rights by putting your name up in lights, but it also occasionally pays out with super-rare awards and big coin payouts.
