And the winner is!
You missed it?
Don't worry. You are still welcome to submit something and tag me (wherever and whenever you do it, along with #HIVEGames tag). I will make sure to at least give you my vote for that effort. If the work is really awesome, I can even agree to share % of the rewards of the post where I will use your work.
Use this one as the model
For each game bellow, I have added an indication of the type of key manager supported for you play the game. My recommendation is for you to use the HIVE Keychain whenever you can. It's quick and very easy to use (some games won't be playable without it).
In addition to the above ones, some games allow you to use directly the HIVE Posting Private Key (not recommended unless you use the account just for that purpose).
Remember that only when using HIVE KeyChain, HiveSigner or explicit HIVE private keys (not recommended), you can be sure you are using your account. All the other methods might allow you to play/try the game, but unless there is a secondary procedure to link your HIVE account, they will not allow you to interact with the HIVE blockchain.
There are also some games that support clients from other blockchains like EOS, WAX (EOS based) or Ethereum, and besides not initially requiring a HIVE account, it's recommended that you get one if you wish later to withdraw some funds.
I will be improving this list adding details to help new users, but by all means, feel free to add any others not listed here that integrate at least with HIVE. I will make sure to test them too and add them on the next post.
(Disclaimer: by integrated with HIVE blockchain I am considering the ones that need to at least be able to broadcast, for both deposit and withdrawals to HIVE, use of NFTs, tokens or any other customer JSON transactions. I do not consider "integrated" if the use of HIVE blockchain is only for purchases with HIVE, although I am including games that only make use of such)
If you like growing a city like the SimCity game, but on the blockchain, with real massive rewards! Requires investment to play. It requires you to invest but it's probably one of the games with the best ratio of investment/rewards on the HIVE blockchain.
A very fast-expanding game, with no initial investment needed. You can listen to music while playing and one day even become a world star with lots of fans.
Do you like a medieval fighting strategy with attributes, items, upgrades and so on? Then check this one out. You also don't need an initial investment to start playing this one.
Wanna learn how to brew stuff (like me) and not actually have to go through the real process just yet? Then check this one... no initial investment.
Do you know "Magic the Gathering" or the Blizzard "HearthStone" card games? This is the HIVE blockchain version of them. But you do actually win real rewards on every game you play. Requires initial deck purchase to win rewards.
Long-awaited and still in development phase (but already playable) space game. Requires initial investment as you need a starter pack to play the game. For me, this game will be a breakthrough in terms of graphical games integrated with the HIVE Blockchain.
Another one that is super fun to play! In Alpha development, but you can already give it a try and you don't require an initial investment. Basically roll pigs and play with odds and attributes. Note that you can only withdraw to Ethereum addresses for now.
Find yourself eager for some Gambling rolls? Try your chance responsibly here. Note: If you play dCity game mentioned above, you can win some tokens for free (with the Casino card) and use them to enhance your spending in this one.
🌇Crypto Tycoon - Not integrated with HIVE
Developed by HIVE users, works on mobile phones too. Very simple but fun to play. Although it's not integrated with HIVE, I decided to add this one to the list.
🌆BROcity - Not integrated with HIVE
Wanna play a different version of SimCity game with some fighting mixed in and street racing? Check this one. No initial investment required. This one is also not integrated with HIVE but allows you to purchase items with HIVE (using HIVE Keychain), therefore it has a place in this list.
🎲BROsino Poker - Not integrated with HIVE
Wider portal for many of the BRO Team creations. In general Poker and Casino typical games. Although not running on HIVE, it allows you to withdraw winnings to your HIVE wallet and it also allows donations, both using HiveSigner.
🎲The BROsino - Not integrated with HIVE
This was sort of the first version from the BRO Team on which gave birth to the above project...
Next? ...Bring new players in!
I am planning on rewarding new players with some prizes, depending on how many and for what type of game they decide to start playing... things can go wild! At the end of the day, both referees and referrers will see a win-win situation and from MY side too!
Most of the links (above) are referrals (some games don't use referrals) to myself but keep in mind that I also need to have an idea of what is more popular (by using https://hiveurl.com). Note that I will not feel bothered if you use any of yours in any of the replies of the post, as long it's not spammy and you are trying to help new users.
I will make individual or group giveaways/contests when I am able to. The idea is, on my side (especially), to motivate and broadcast outside #HIVE for users to join and try these games. So, if current players bring new ones aboard, please make sure you encourage them to introduce themselves on any of my posts and to let me know on the comments who you brought in.
Besides all the fun on trying, testing and enjoying many of the above games I did manage to get some lucky stuff already, so I will use specific assets as prizes in order to motivate further adoption. I will contact game owners to make sure I target the right audience too.
Have fun, good luck on all the gaming and lots of teaching "how to play" to new players.
