This is a guide for the Play to Earn Game Festival, which takes place from November 2nd until November 13th 2020. It’s the first business-to-consumer virtual game convention. The aim of the event is to connect gamers with interesting games that are powered by blockchain technology and embrace the play-to-earn business model.
I’ve created this guide to help you understand the Play to Earn Game Festival a little bit more. Before you visit the event. Make sure you know how to create a wallet. Simple instructions are provided during the event, but if that’s not enough. Read this.
Where does the festival take place?
The event takes place inside a virtual world called Cryptovoxels. The Play to Earn Game Festival is just a small part inside a much bigger world. You walk with the WASD buttons, press the F-key to fly and use your mouse to look around. Cryptovoxels also works without the need to login, using a smartphone or tablet. All controls are show as buttons on your screen. Visit the festival by clicking here.
What can you do?
Inside the festival area (which is basically an old arcade hall) you will find five arcade cabinets. Every cabinet is dedicated to a different game, which you can learn about. Every day the line-up changes, check out the rotation schedule here. Or you can keep an eye on our Discord and Twitter for daily updates!
Click the screen of an arcade cabinet to watch an explanatory video about the game and the play-to-earn mechanics. At the end of every video you will see a code. Press the red button on the arcade machine to open a form (opens in a new browser window), and use the code when you fill in the form.
When and how do you win?
For every game we do one raffle. And you can only join the raffle on the days that particular game is on display. If you want a chance to win something from every game, you need to make sure to visit the festival on four different days. Once again, check the rotation to schedule your visit.
We will once the winners of these raffles when the festival is over. So, that’s after November 13th.
However, Synergy of Serra is an amazing partner. Together with them we have organized DAILY raffles. Every day five visitors of the festival can win 2 crates of cards. Every new day, we pick winners and reset the raffle. That means that you have a chance to win card packs for Synergy of Serra every day during the festival!
Wait! There’s more to win!
The third and final way you can win something, is by joining a puzzle, or more like an escape room. Together with Matic Network and their partners we’ve created an awesome treasure chest filled with good stuff. Below you will see the wallet address, and there are things on the Ethereum and Matic Network.
What’s in that wallet? A total value of more than 300 dollars!
- $200 worth of MATIC (on Ethereum chain)
- 20 Base Card Crates for Synergy of Serra (on Matic chain)
- 20 Transcendent Card Crates for Synergy of Serra (on Matic chain)
- $20 worth of ETH (on Ethereum chain)
- 5000 Ether Stone for the game Pirates 2048 (on Ethereum chain)
But, how do you get to that money and game assets? The key is hidden at the festival. You will need to look around for hints. Perhaps think a bit out of the box. There are 12 words that need to be placed in a particular order. Good luck!
Play to Earn is launching a community token called PLAY. Those who visit the game festival can be among the first to own this token. The digital currency can soon be used to acquire digital collectibles, buy banners on the website or in the newsletter, or to pay for a spot at the next festival by Play to Earn. So yes, there will definitely be demand.
Anyway, you can find these airdrops on a regular basis in the mailbox at the rooftop of the festival. Click it, and add more PLAY to your wallet! Announcement of the airdrops will happen in our Discord.
