Play to Earn Game Festival is Coming

You heard it first here in this newsletter. (hidden at the bottom, to make it ever more exclusive) I guess these are some of the extra perks coming with the subscription. 😉 Play to Earn is working on setting up a game festival to celebrate blockchain gaming. We’ve found a small venue. It’s an old, kinda shitty, arcade hall. But I think we can make it into something awesome, that gives some nice exposure to game creators and provides awesome news and goodies to visitors! You’re free to check out the venue. Please wear a mask, there’s mold. And be careful, because the arcade is not in a great condition. More details about the Play to Earn Game Festival will be provided later this month. ▶▶▶ Take a look
