  3. Join the game by searching for "#SharksHC VIP Party Challenge" from within the app (click the search button and enter the game name).

Each mission has a name, description and point value. Photo proof is required to receive points for a mission. Just select the mission you want to complete from the mission list, take a picture with the phone's camera and press the submit button. You'll receive the points right away, but remember that all photos are subject to review. This means that you can lose those points at any time if the photo doesn’t match the assigned task.
