General Information

Private games allow you and your friends to link your Predict The Oscars! game ballots together with a name and password you provide.  Each member may set-up one game per contest and may join as many as they are invited to play.  Once you have joined a private game you will be able to see the scores and rankings of the other members of that game.  This feature is ideal for those hosting parties, office workers, classmates or any other group who want to quickly see how they compare to each other.

Note: You are not entering another ballot and no matter how many private games you join your ballot is still entered in the Predict The Oscars! contest associated with those games.
