Each player competes to be the daily, monthly, or all time Leader, while having the opportunity to message other players, participate on the "Player Talk" message boards, and submit questions. Players can also interact with other Catamount fans by forming teams for competition in addition to individual play. At the end of each game, each player can review the correct answer, and over time, players gain a deeper knowledge of Catamount athletics and accomplishments.
Catamount Fans are recognized for their accuracy and speed by moving up "levels" and earning "badges", with opportunities to excel in a number of categories and sports. If desired, each player will receive a daily email that links them directly to the "PLAY NOW" portion of the game, which allows players to support WCU Athletics as part of their everyday experience.
