How To Play

1. Register or Reactivate Your Account

• If you're new to the game, please click here to register. It only takes one minute, at most. No annoying confirmation emails either!

• If you're a returning player, as usual, you will need to login and reactivate your account letting us know you're in for the upcoming or current season.

2. Select a City

Click on the "My Picks" link in the main menu to access your picking page. On this page, you'll be able to make a pick, see any pending picks, and view all of the picks you've made this season with their score.

To make a pick, either click on one of the blue dots on the map or manually select the location in the dropdown box below the map. Don't forget to select the date if this pick is not for tomorrow. If it's not for tomorrow, you'll have the chance to lock in your pick for extra bonus points, but be careful, you can't change that pick!

3. Repeat Step #2 30 Times

In order to rank at the end of the season, you need to make at least 30 picks during the season. Please note, you may only select one city for any given day.

4. Use Your Mulligan

Did you make a pick that didn't quite goes as planned? Did the rain/snow line end up 1 mile north of your selection? New for the 2018-2019 season, you'll have the ability to toss that one away. A mulligan must be used by the end of the next day after a final score has been posted and you only get one, so use it wisely!

5. Have Fun and Learn Something New

Fantasy Blizzard is a fun game to play, but it's also a great way to learn something new, even for the most experienced forecasters. It's inevitable one of your 30 picks will be a miss and learning why your pick only produced 3" of snow when the model said a foot would fall will help you become a better forecaster in the long run.
