About Splinterlands Game
Splinterlands is a decentralized collectible card game built on blockchain technology. It is similar in concept to games like Magic the Gathering and Hearthstone where you build up a collection of cards, which all have various different stats and abilities, and use them to battle other players in skill-based matches.
By using blockchain technology, players can own their digital cards, and can trade and sell them freely just as if they were physical cards, without the control of any centralized company or entity.
How to Singup with The Sandbox
For now, The Sandbox only offers an experience through its free builder tool. Using it to get acquainted with the game is free.
Buying SAND tokens is possible with an in-wallet swap. Binance also offers trading and swapping services for this asset. Bidding for and buying LAND assets is done through the Sandbox browser app. In the future, new experiences and types of play will be added.
In Splinterlands, players face off in one on one battles. For the match, each player selects a summoner, and then chooses a selection of creature that are either neutral or that belong to the same element as the summoner. IE, Water Summoners can use Water Creatures and Neutral Creatures.
Summoners and Monsters have an associated Mana cost associated and every battle has a limit on the amount of Mana available. This can range from as low as 11 all the way up to 99! Also, at the higher ranks, battles come with one or more special rules. These rules are many. Some examples are, only melee attack can be used, every Monster starts the battle poisoned, or no Monsters with Magic attack can be used. These rules provide variation from match to match and force players to think strategically about every fight.

Splinterlands Play-to-Earn Mechanics
Splinterlands boasts a strong economy, with meaningful rewards, an in-game rental system, leaderboard rewards, and tournaments for those who like an extra challenge.
Splinterlands is technically free to play, though to earn rewards, you must purchase a Summoner’s Spellbook for $10. This Spellbook is not an NFT and is not tradeable. It is an upgrade to your account allowing you to access all facets of Splinterlands.
Splinterlands Rewards System
Players receive a reward of Dark Energy Crystals with every match they win. There are also daily quests, and end of season rewards. The number of chests received in both depends on your current rank. Reward chests contain reward cards, Dark Energy Crystals, Potions, and sometimes even card packs!
Potions come in two flavors, Legendary and Alchemy. These increase your odds of finding a Legendary or Gold Foil card respectively. Potions only work when opening card packs, though, not reward chests.
The game features a built-in tournament system. Weekly tournaments are hosted by the Splinterlands crew, though there are many more run by the community. Everything is handled via the in-game interface. No need for tracking the tournament on a secondary website. Players can also join Guilds, allowing them to participate in twice weekly team competitions against other Guilds for special Guild-related rewards.
Cards and card packs can be sold or traded. In addition to the standard reward chests, the top 30 players in each Tier receive a bonus payment of DEC at the end of a season.
Play To Earn
Splinterlands makes it easy to earn on a daily basis. Players can win rewards from Tournaments, Ranked play, and Quests! No matter what your skill level or collection size, there is always an opportunity to earn!
Among the many prizes you may win are collectible cards of varying rarity, card packs, magic potions, and Dark Energy Crystals (a tradable, digital currency used to buy items in the shop).

Features Of Splinterlands Gaming Platform
The cards are the primary component of the game. They can be acquired by purchasing booster packs or by receiving rewards in loot chests at the end of the season. They are also actively traded on Splinterlands own marketplace as well as secondary markets like peakmonsters.com (Hive chain) and AtomicHub (Wax blockchain).
Abilities & Levelling up
Cards can be levelled up by combining multiple copies of the same card. Higher-level cards get increased statistics and, often, additional abilities. Cards can use these abilities to trigger a special effect or increase the stats of your own cards or decrease the stats of your opponent’s cards. A complete list of all the abilities available in the game can be found on the official Splinterlands website.
Land in Splinterlands offers owners the ability to mint exclusive items and spell cards. As explained before, these items and spell cards will never be sold by the team but instead produced and traded completely between players.
