Let's say you want to start a new game with four players. You have played a game with two of the players already and want to invite a third player to make four. Follow these steps:
Step 1. After you log in, at the Home Screen, press the blue New Game + button in the top middle of the screen.
Step 2. You will arrive at the "Set up your game" screen with your player ("You") selected already as the first player.
Step 3. Type in the first name and email address of the new player you want to invite under the "Invite a new player..." section and press the "Invite new player" button. NOTE: If you do not know the email address of the player you are inviting you can use their HFFE username (which can be found on their Profile screen).
Step 4. The new player you invited ("John" in this example) will show up with a check mark next to his name as the second player. Place a check mark next to the name of the next two players you want to add. You may need to scroll to find their name. Once you have selected the players you want, press the "Continue" button.
NOTE: If you cannot find the person you want to play with you can invite another person just like you did in Step 3 above.
Step 5. Hand & Foot Friends & Family Edition will randomly assign the selected players to teams.
If you want to re-assign players to a different team then just press the "Re-Shuffle Teams" button and it will cycle through all the possible combinations.
If you decide you want to keep the original teams assigned just keep pressing the "Re-Shuffle Teams" button until you see the original teams. When you have the teams just like you want them, press the "Continue" button.
Step 6. The next screen(s) allow you to customize the game, such as by selecting the number of cards you want to be dealt for each player's hand and foot. Select the number of cards you want to use. Hand & Foot Friends & Family Edition automatically selects the recommended option but you will see a tip to help you make your selection if you want to make a change.
NOTE: If you want to change your selections or players just press the left arrow (back) button in the upper left corner.
Step 7. Once you finish customizing your game you will see the "Review Game Setup" screen. Press the "Start game" button when you are ready to start the game and send out the email invitations to the players.
NOTE: You may see more options on the Review Game Setup screen that you are not yet able to configure. Over time, Hand & Foot Friends & Family Edition will allow you to customize different aspects of the game.
That's it, you did it! Enjoy your game!
