Indirect Object Pronouns

I'm a bit confused on grammar -

I found a question on a quiz " Ellos XXXX invitan a Susana a jugar " and you are supposed to substitute an indirect object pronoun for Susana and I believe come up with the answer : Ellos le invitan a jugar".

I am confused about the use of the indirect object pronoun here..

If the original question had been "Ellos invitan a Susana", here we have Susana as a direct object , so then the sentence become "Ellos lo invitan", or simply "lo invitan" (I think)

If I am correct on this point, why does the inclusion of "a jugar" cause the use of an indirect object pronoun ?

This question is probably more of an English grammar question than Spanish, but if someone could give me a little guidance, I would appreciate it
