What to do the day of the Play Date (January 26th 2019)

  • Tell us when you’re ready: drop into #xa_community_playdates in the Xbox Ambassadors Discord server to let us know you and your group are here and ready to play!
  • Squad up: As a general rule, family/friends/guests will stay with the Ambassador who invited them. Staff will mix and match everyone who tells us they’re ready – the goal is to get new teams of Ambassadors together who haven’t played with each other before so we all meet some new friends.
  • Play Nice: Playdates let Ambassadors game with new people and to make new friends. Let’s all have a good time, build each other up, and add some friends on Xbox when we hit it off!
  • Show off: Don’t forget to capture awesome clips and snapshots to share with the hashtag #XAPlaydates!
