Track Authority Music

This is a platform for building competitive and rewarding games around music. Each of the four current games has slightly different rules and timelines for turning Challenges into Playlists into Compilations.

Across all games, each “Challenge” (playlist theme) must have at least one award and winner. Most games are free to enter, and awards are sponsored by members or advertising companies. The primary money making group will likely be “Fantasy Track Ball” where it costs ~$5 to enter a track and the award is ~80% of the pool. Yes, betting on your own musical tastes to a theme. Currently, of the four games, only this one is open to public registration. Please request an invitation for the other games.
