Sponsor’s computer time-clock is the official timekeeper for all Game purposes. Each month during the Contest will be a separate game (each, a “Monthly Contest”). There will be eleven (11) Monthly Contests. Each new Monthly Challenge will begin on the 1st day of each month at 12:00:00 AM ET, and will end at 11:59:59 pm ET on the last day of the month, except the first Monthly Contest begins on February 18, 2016 and ends February 29, 2016.
THIS GAME IS DEVISED AS A SKILL AND KNOWLEDGE-BASED NON-GAMBLING PROMOTION, and is intended solely for entertainment purposes. From all eligible and valid entries received in connection with the Game, winners will be determined, as set out in Section 4 below, based on the Game participant’s ability to apply his/her skill and knowledge concerning current professional athletes during the 2016 calendar year taking place during the Game Period. Participants will answer one designated question for each day for each active professional sport. If Participants correctly answer the designated question for each day, their STREAK will increase by one (1). If a Player does not pick correctly, his or her Streak is reset to zero (0). Participation in the Game is described, regulated and clarified by, and wholly subject to, the provisions of these official rules (the “Official Rules”).

Each Player will select a unique user name (“Username”) and password, which shall be used by such Player any time Player wishes to engage the Site and/or launch the App (“Initial Registration”). Each Player will be asked to select his or her favorite participating Buffalo Wild Wings® location from a drop box during this Initial Registration process. Users may also register using Facebook. Carefully review and accept the Terms and Conditions, which is required to proceed. Upon completion of these steps, each Player becomes a “Registered User.” Limit one (1) registration to be a Registered User, per person or email address.
(2) If you are a Registered User, then during the Game Period, locate the GameBreak® STREAKS game within the App or Site, as the case may be, to acquire access to the games. Upon selection of this Game, each Player shall indicate his/her acceptance of these Official Rules, however, participation in the Game is deemed to be Player’s consent. Player may be asked to consent to receive promotional e-mails from Sponsor, its affiliates and/or authorized agents. Consenting to receive promotional e-mails is optional and refusal to consent will not render any Player ineligible to play the Game or win prizes or affect or reduce any Player’s chances of winning.
HOW TO PLAY AND WIN:
After successful login to the game, navigate to the “Make Picks” page. On the “Make Picks” page, Players will have the option to select a sport and then choose a professional athlete in that sport. Sports available to choose from may include professional football, professional baseball, professional basketball and professional hockey. Sports are only made available when games are in-season for that particular sport. Sponsor may offer sports, games and athletes in its sole discretion, and may not include every possible sport, game or athlete available on any given day of the Game Period.
Once a specific sport is selected, the Player will be prompted to choose one (1) athlete from a corresponding list (only listed athletes are eligible for selection) that the Player feels will accomplish the Prediction Question (as defined below) presented (each, a “Pick”). Only ONE (1) Pick may be made per sport, per game. Players may make Picks in more than one sport per Monthly Contest. Once that Pick is marked final (the game has ended and the result tallied), the Player may make a new Pick in that same sport for the same day.
If the Player makes a correct Pick, the “Streak” for that sport begins at 1 and will continue to increase with each correct Pick. If the Player makes an incorrect Pick, the Streak for that sport resets to 0. (It is possible for Players to have more than one active Streak(s). Streak(s) for each sport are separate and will not be affected by the status of a Streak in another sport.) The goal is to generate the longest Streak of consecutive correct Picks in one of the four sports over the course of the Monthly Contest. Players may have up to four (4) Streaks running concurrently, with each sport constituting a separate Streak. However, Streaks across sports will not be combined for purposes of determining prizes or winners.
Once a correct Pick is finalized and a Streak is increased, the athlete that was the source of the correct Pick cannot be selected again until either, (a) a Streak ends and resets to 0, or (b) a new Monthly Contest begins, whichever is first. This means that the ability to choose a specific athlete will vary based on prior Picks (and success of doing so).
On the first day of each Monthly Contest, all Players start with of a Streak of zero, and at the conclusion of each Monthly Contest, the Streaks of all Players are reset to zero. Each Streak may only consist of one sport.
Below are examples of Prediction Questions that may be presented for each sport:
Baseball: Select one (1) athlete that will hit a single in today’s game.
Basketball: Select one (1) forward that will have 5 or more rebounds in today’s game.
Hockey: Select one (1) athlete that will score a goal in today’s game.
Football: Select one (1) Running Back that will rush for 50 or more yards in today’s game.
For clarity, correct Picks for Prediction Questions will count toward the Monthly Contest for which they are presented for selection, even if the corresponding game concludes or is marked final during the next Monthly Contest (i.e., after midnight).
Players are not required to play every day of the Game Period and if they do not make a Pick on any particular day, their Streak will not be affected. A Streak will only be affected by submitting a Pick to a Prediction Question. The more sports a Player makes correct Picks for on any given day of the Game Period, the greater his/her ability to affect a Streak. The goal is to have the longest Streak in one sport for the Monthly Contest.
In the event a game is postponed or cancelled due to weather or other reasons, the Pick for the corresponding game may be scored as a push. In all such cases, the Administrator's decision is final. In the event that the game selected is marked as a push, the Streak will continue but the score will be unchanged.
Each day, Players may submit Picks to Prediction Questions for any game up to 5 minutes before the scheduled start time of the game (the “Deadline”). After the Deadline, Picks for that game are locked and cannot be edited.
Once a Pick is made and the Deadline has passed, a Player may not make a Pick for another game in the same sport until the previously made Pick is marked as final (game has ended and the result entered online).
For every correct Pick made, the Streak for the corresponding sport increases by one (1). The goal is to accrue the longest Streak in a sport during the Monthly Contest. Leaderboards will rank Players by longest Streak (active or not) in each sport. There will be separate leaderboards for each of the four sports. In the event of a tie among potential winners in a prizing period, the following criteria shall be used to determine a winner:
1. The Player whose streak is still "active" at the end of the prizing period will be declared the winner. An “Active” streak consists of consecutive correct predictions during a predefined period of time.
2. If a tie still exists because more than one Player has an "active" streak, then the Player with the least amount of incorrect Picks during the Monthly Contest will be declared the winner.
3. If a tie still exists after comparing the number of incorrect Picks, then the Player who submitted his or her first correct Pick at the earliest time in the Monthly Contest in which the tie has occurred will be declared the winner.
To allow for the scoring of Streaks as quickly as possible and fairness in administration of the Game, all Streak scoring will be completed once a game is final, and may occur prior to any potential box score changes or updates. As such, a Player’s Streak(s) will not be adjusted and may not reflect any such box score changes. (NOTE: Any reference to a player card on the App or Site may also display statistics that do not reflect the Streaks scoring and should not be relied upon for purposes of calculating a Player’s Streak.)
When entering, a Player can create or join a private league of friends or other owners with similar interests, fantasy skill level, etc. to compete against. When creating a league, a Player will be asked to enter a league name and password which can be used by friends (who must also be Players) to join at any time. No separate prizes will be awarded for leagues.
