Step-by-step guide to opening packs, setting lineups & winning prizes!

Open packs to collect cards

Ultimate Chargers and Ultimate Bengals Squad Pack

Open your squad pack

Upon first login you will receive a 15-card squad pack, with all the cards required to make up your first lineup. Cards within this pack, and all packs, are rated gold, silver and base. Gold cards are most likely to pick up points for your fantasy team and are the rarest in the game.

After this initial squad pack you will receive a weekly pack every Tuesday, containing four cards, and further packs for simply logging in daily, as well as referring friends to the game.

To rip open your packs, simply click the pack image on screen, then scroll through the cards inside to check out which NFL players and teams have been added to your roster.

Manage your team

When ready to set your lineup each week, navigate to your team, either directly from your pack opening or via the “MY TEAM” banner on the game homepage.
