Wombat is the ideal place if you want to get started with the EOS blockchain and play games that utilize it. Since many of these games entail play-to-earn mechanics, a number of people were asking us how to get some tokens on Wombat. In this post, I want to compile a few instructions and links to give you an overview of that.
In case you’re entirely new to Wombat, also check out this getting started guide.
I’ll go game by game, in alphabetical order. Note that this and any linked posts may not exhaust all the ways you could earn with Wombat. They are just there to give you an orientation and get you started.
Candypop Duel is one of the three games by Neowiz Blockchain Studios. It is somewhat similar to Candy Crush (in case you’re familiar), except that it’s always played against an opponent. The player who scores more points, wins the match and the prize. There are five prize categories and in order to profit, you’ll have to be fairly skilled. We recommend starting in the low prize categories to train and move up after learning the ropes. On slow days, it might take some time to find an opponent in the highest prize categories.
Crypto Dynasty is one the most popular games on EOS and beyond according to DappRadar.
Due to the relatively many ways of earning EOS in Crypto Dynasty, we’ve created these two parts of the Ultimate guide to earning EOS with Crypto Dynasty, part I and part II.
EOS Knights was the first idle RPG on EOS and also the model for EOS Dynasty (you’ll be able to tell the resemblance once you’ve played both). In many ways, the strategies for EOS Knights are very similar to EOS Dynasty, but EOS Knights doesn’t have as much of a user base anymore because of the large volume of resources needed to play it. If you’re lucky, you can still sell some material or items in the game, or simply play it for fun.
EOS Racing is a skill game around cars and racing. You can make some EOS by selling items and winning competitions — find more information and strategies in this EOS Racing guide.
Hexa Puzzle Duel
The latest of the three Neowiz games. The puzzle mechanic differs a lot from Candy Pop Duel, but the PvP and earning mechanics are the same.
Use your freeplay in the “Wood” category to get started.
Prospectors is one of the more complex games in the Wombat ecosystem and therefore offers many ways of earning PGL tokens — the native in-game currency. We’re currently preparing a more in-depth guide for you, so stay tuned.
However, check the game out nonetheless. You can start earning some in-game gold (which translates into PGL at a rate of 1000 to 1) by performing tasks or mining resources with your workers. PGL can be traded, e.g. on Newdex (which you also find in the Explorer), for EOS.
Solitaire Duel is the oldest, but still the most popular of the three Neowiz games. Here, you play Solitaire against your opponents and the PvP, earning mechanics are the same as in Hexa Puzzle Duel and Candy Pop Duel.
Womplay is our new rewards platform that allows you to earn Wombucks and cash them out for EOS or earn crypto directly. Featuring your favorite blockchain games and mainstream hits like Forge of Empires, it packs tons of fun and EOS for all Wombat gamers. You can read more about it in our FAQ.
Despite the possibilities of being able to earn EOS or other tokens through this ever-growing list of games in Wombat, we hope that first and foremost, you enjoy playing those games (after all, they’re games). We and the developers of these games appreciate your feedback a lot on what can be improved and how we can provide a better experience for you, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us via our Telegram.
