Once you know your team, sign up for your Name Tag Color Club in order to receive invites and keep up with your teammates through the group IM chat.

Keep track of the daily points your color team earns by checking the official There Games Scoreboard. You can easily find and sign up for TSG events by clicking on the “Day” listed at the top of the Scoreboard. Day 1 through Day 10 will display the different events scheduled for each day.
