  • At this point, you will be given the option to customize some of your team to make them look however you like. Most of the time this costs money to do but the first time is free. You can also name each of your teammates as well.

Playing Games

  • At this point, we will begin setting up our first game. First, we will need to select three cards to use while playing. To make sure you have a chance against the opposing team, you should use Big Impact cards.

  • You can tell if a card is a Big Impact card because it will have a vertical stripe on the left side with the words “Big Impact” written on it.

  • Now that you’ve added three big impact cards to your roster, it’s time to start playing so tap on “Play” in the lower right corner of the screen to continue.
  • At this point, you will be connected to an online player that you can match up against. It may take a moment or two to connect, so be patient.

  • Pressing on the “Continue” button here takes you to the next screen that shows your team’s popularity with basketball fans. Win or lose, you will likely gain fans. The more fans you have, the more coins you will earn by playing a game.

Buying New Cards

  • On the next screen, you will be shown how to get new cards to use in your games. Each card pack has different types of cards, with the more expensive packs having better types overall.

  • As we are still very early in the game, we will want to choose the “Bronze” tier. A Bronze tier pack costs 150 coins and has 6 players per pack purchased.
  • When you choose to buy a card pack, you can actually choose it! Tap on which pack you’d like to pick and then tap the Confirm button to open it.
  • In a card pack, you have a chance of earning less common or rare cards, such as skill cards. With skill cards, you can improve the stats of your current players.

  • To use a skill card, head to the team management section and then tap on the player you’d like to upgrade. From here, you will see a blinking icon with a red exclamation point over it denoting the type of skill that can be upgraded with the skill card. The card in the example above is for the running skill. You can then tap on the “Use” button to use the skill card and discard it.

Selling Cards

  • If at any point you feel that a card is just not servicing you well enough or you’d just like to make room for better cards, you can sell them off in the “My Cards” section of the home screen.
  • To sell a card, tap on the “My Cards” section of the home screen. From here, you can tap on any of the cards you have in your inventory to mark one. Tap on the “Sell” button below the card to Sell the card or see its value.
  • Be careful of selling cards, as there is not an undo option available. Make absolutely sure you will never need the card before confirming to sell it.

Free Bucks and Coins

  • If you ever find yourself in a bind with not many Coins or Bucks to help out, you can earn a few free ones by using Facebook or watching a video.
  • To earn free Bucks or Coins, tap on the “Get Free Coins” button in the top right corner of the screen. From here, you can choose from any of the available icons showing what you’d like to do to earn free money, from watching a video to using social media.
