Weekly Update

June 12, 2017



Feature Focus: Auto Scoreboard

New features are being added to Micro Fantasy on a regular basis. But it can be hard to keep up with frequent changes, and you may miss some new features which you'll really like. To help you make the most of your Micro Fantasy experience, we'll highlight features you may have missed.

The Auto Scoreboard is a great example of a Micro Fantasy feature that allows you to customize your Micro Fantasy experience. Most participants prefer to automatically see the scoreboard after every result, and it is the default setting. However, if you prefer to stay on the Pick screen between plays, or check the scoreboard during breaks by tapping the Score or Rank button, you can turn the Auto Scoreboard off. Just tap the settings icon (it looks like a white gear) in the black bar near the top of any screen and drag the slider left.


The layout of the Auto Scoreboard screen shows the point totals, highest to lowest, for contest participants after each result. Participants that predicted the result correctly are highlighted in a color bar. To enter your next prediction, tap the Continue button at the bottom of the scoreboard screen.

Micro Fantasy Wows Nursing Home Activity Directors

Based on the successful Micro Fantasy pilot a the Oaks of Brecksville in Ohio, Micro Fantasy was invited to provide a contest demo at the recent annual symposium for The National Certification Council for Activity Professionals in Buffalo, New York. Attendees included activity directors and administrators for managed care facilities across the United States.

Many that viewed the demo were quick to see Micro Fantasy contests as an enticing activity for sports fans in residence (especially males) as well as tech savvy Baby Boomers. Several facility administrators expressed interest in implementing Micro Fantasy in the near future. Announcements in this regard will be made in upcoming weekly updates.

Crushers Gaining Momentum in Frontier League Play
The Lake Erie Crushers won back-to-back series last week, taking two out of three games from both the Southern Illinois Miners and Gateway Grizzlies. Both series were held at the Crushers home field in Avon, Ohio. The Crushers overall season record now stands at 12-15. See the Micro Fantasy schedule below for upcoming Crushers games and associated Micro Fantasy contests.

Young Chicago Bandits Fans Become Latest Micro Fantasy Champions 
The Chicago Bandits of National Pro Fastpitch were once again in action last week against league newcomer the Beijing Eagles. The four game series in Chicago was the first of the season for the Eagles. Over 1,500 fans attended the series and participation in Micro Fantasy contests was once again strong. There was a youth movement among contest champions with several teens and preteens earning the highest point totals. All Micro Fantasy champions during the series received Chicago Bandits t-shirts and Sugar Factory gift cards.
