The branded game—which agency Wieden + Kennedy helped create—will feature 31 animations, and it required 35 Instagram accounts to complete. Here is an outline that details more about how the game is played:

• The game starts on KFC's Instagram page, where thumbnails create an image of a football field. A "Start Here" tab will guide players.
