Common Questions About Playing

Does it cost anything to play games?
This is the game designer's choice:
  • Many free-to-play (F2P) games
  • Some games may require owning a specific NFT, such as a pass
  • Some games may require owning an NFT from a specific collection, such as an avatar
  • Some Experiences may require a small SAND fee when LANDs can be monetised in the future
Can I earn SAND while playing?
The Sandbox is designed to support a circular economy where players:
  • May earn SAND and NFT rewards through Play&Earn mechanics
  • May use SAND to buy avatars and equipment to enhance gameplay and support creators
  • May use SAND to buy required NFTs to enter gated Experiences
  • May use SAND to gain access to games that require a small fee
Can I destroy terrain blocks or interactive objects during a game?
Our software empowers game designers to customise gameplay:
  • The designer can configure any blocks or objects to be destroyed, created, and heal or damage players or other objects
  • Every game is a unique experience with its own set of gameplay mechanics
