What's a Matchup?

WHAT'S A MATCHUP?A Matchup is a head-to-head game against a specific other player. You can play against a friend, challenge someone on the leaderboard, or rematch the player who just took all your money 😜.

Matchups can be played at your own pace -- no stressful countdown timer. When it's your turn, you've got 48 hours to make your move, and then your opponent will be notified to make their move.

The new Matchups screen lets you keep track of all your Matchups that are in progress, and easily start new ones by searching for a user by their username, or by choosing one of the suggested Matchups.

When starting a Matchup, you can just play "FOR FUN", or you can up the stakes and play for a cash prize amount. Each player puts up half of the prize amount, and the winner claims the prize!

When you challenge someone, you put up your half of the money, but if they don't accept within 24hrs, you get it back. And once the game is accepted, then if either player takes longer than 48 hours to make their move, then they forfeit the game.

This is a new feature, so feel free to reach out to our support team if you have any questions, encounter any issues, or have a great idea you want to share with us about how to make Matchups even better.
