The disclosed schemes incorporate technology for hosting on, or interacting/reacting with, potential participants' mobile and personal communicating and computing devices.

The disclosed schemes provide event-long score tabulation as a mechanism by which to allocate awards. The disclosed schemes provide for branding to certain sponsors of a Super Squares event, league, or season, in a manner that the a sponsoring entity's retail and/or website properties may be linked to the automated game in order to facilitate increased traffic, sales and/or exposure.
