Major Nelson, aka Larry Hryb, gives you the details on how to participate, and it’s easy. All you have to do is send a friend request or invite to the gamertags shared on his blog. Then be ready to play at least a half-hour before the event starts. If you receive a game invite, get ready to game with developers, he writes.
