After the disastrous land sale last month, The Sandbox is continuing its 4.3 land sale this Friday with the introduction of The Smurfs. At 1PM UTC they will sell 5518 LANDs and exclusive assets based on the cartoon series. Almost half of the available land parcels are premium locations surrounding The Smurfs village.

There will be 2400 premium land parcels that will go up for sale. These parcels sell for $100 each and come with four exclusive assets. There are 14 different legendary characters from The Smurfs to collect, including Wild Smurfette, Papa Smurf, Baker Smurf and Farmer Smurf. Each of them has 200 copies.

In addition there are two epic assets: Gargamel’s cat Azrael and the Howlibird, who was created when Hefty and Lazy dropped a failed plant growth formula into a ravine. There’s also one rare asset, a prank box, and one common smurfberry bush.

Gamers who own land on December 12th 1PM UTC, will automatically be eligible to claim a free Smurf character at a later date. At the moment there a 3547 landowners. There are also only 14 times two hundred legendary Smurf characters announced for this sale. That’s 2800 Smurfs, and that’s not enough to reward all land owners. As a result it’s likely that The Sandbox will create a special series of Smurfs as a community reward.

Owning land gives you the opportunity to build a game, a virtual home, a museum or even a shop. There are endless possibilities. Sign up now and join the land sale.

What is The Sandbox?

The Sandbox is one of the blockchain-powered virtual worlds currently in development. The beta test will launch later this year, but before that time there will be one more pre-sale. During this pre-sale gamers, businesses and investors can buy virtual land with a discount. If it works, obviously. And today it definitely didn’t work.

The virtual world of The Sandbox consists out of lands, and voxels fill up each of those lands. Visually it will remind many gamers of Minecraft, as both games have this Lego-inspired look to them. However, players are able to buy virtual land and implement any form of monetization. These virtual lands can become mini-games, adventures, virtual shops, extensions of actual webshops, a space for social gatherings, and so on.

The Sandbox is providing free tools for developers, gamers and content creators. Creators can use VoxEdit to make objects. In addition the Game Maker allows users to create interactivity on their virtual land. The Sandbox will also create a meta gaming experience. Players can for example do daily quests or weekly quests for their guild. This will earn players SAND, which they can sell or use to buy in-game items or virtual land.
