A system and method for establishing and managing multiuser sessions is provided. A plurality of interactive content titles and at least one activity template associated with each of the interactive content titles are stored in memory. A processor executes instructions stored in memory, wherein execution of the instructions by the processor receives input regarding a selected activity associated with one of the interactive content titles stored in memory, retrieves an activity template associated with the selected activity from memory, establishes a session based at least on the activity properties, assigns a user as a leader of the established session, adds each of a plurality of peers to an available participant slot in accordance with leader input, and automatically initiates the selected activity within the established session.
