General questions about the game

Blankos Block Party is a free-to-play MMO developed by Mythical Games and Third Kind Games. It is set in a vibrant online world styled like a giant block party, with a focus on custom art and design, world-building and exploration, and collecting unique Blankos.

User created minigames are called Block Parties. These can be played with a group of other players in game and thus it’s a party!

Blankos Block Party is currently in Early Access. The official launch of the game is still unknown, however is expected to be in Q1/Q2 2022.

Head to the official Blankos Block Party website where Early Access is live and everyone can play (provided your pc has windows and you meet the minimum specs).

On the official Blankos Block Party website, there is a large download button on the top of the page where you can download the client.

Yes, Blankos Block Party is free to play, with the option for purchasable in-game cosmetics, accessories, and limited edition Blankos.

The initial access for Early Access will be focused on English-speaking countries including North America, UK, New Zealand, Australia and Canada. The game will later be available in most countries and in several different languages – complete list to be confirmed closer to launch.

Blockchain is a revolutionary new tech which develops a trusted decentralized ledger to allow proof of ownership over the internet. What this means is that the things you earn and buy in Blankos are yours to own like your own digital toy. Blankos utilizes blockchain technology to give players proof of verified ownership and transaction history – simply put, this means more control for players over the things they buy! I know this is still a bit confusing but it will be explained in more detail later and what it means for owning Blankos in a future official announcement from the Blankos Block Party team.

Gameplay and Parties

Currently Blankos features shooting, racing, and collection game styles. The Blankos Block Party team will continue to add new building items, toys, and accessories to let you build crazy, fun and innovative new parties. Read more about the building game mode here.

Nope, not a single line of code is needed! You simply build a Party, design and build out your parties, drop basic building blocks, interactives and decorations into it, and then configure what the rules of the game play are. Everything can be done with a game controller or mouse/keyboard and the game takes care of the rest! It’s all up to you.

Yes! More info on this later but there will be rewards and unlocks for players that build awesome and popular Parties.

Parties can be created as multi-player or single-player. Blankos love Parties with other Blankos, but single-players who want to fly solo can also explore, collect, and complete challenges. The ‘Trial’ games inside the Party Bus are dedicated to single player.

The main focus of the game is however, the multiplayer gameplay.


Blankos

Blankos are fun and mischievous collectible digital vinyl toys brought to life. Inhabiting The Junction, their own offbeat world, they love good vibes and good times!

No, Blankos are digital in-game only. The ownership aspect means players can buy limited edition Blankos that are verifiable proof-of-ownership via blockchain. Players could sell these digitial Blankos to other players in the future.

Blankos love accessories. Not only can you get different Blankos for your squad but you can trick them out with cool gear. Explore the various accessories here.

Yes, you will be able to choose abilities and level up your Blankos as you play and build. For more information about styles, perks and abilities, see this article.

Currently, Blankos were either created by the in-house Mythical Games Team, or through partnerships with ultra-talented vinyl toy artists. For now, you’ll be able to express yourself by customizing your Blankos with a wide variety of accessories and attachments! 


Buy. Sell. Collect

Currently the main way to get a Blanko, accessories and items is by buying them via the in-game store, official webstore or through the Mythical marketplace.

The in-game store & webstore are the primary marketplace where you can purchase Blankos/Accessories using Blanko Bucks (in-game currency which you can purchase with $USD or similar) or Moola (Currency you can earn in game).

The Mythical Marketplace is the official secondary marketplace will allows buying and selling of Blankos and accessories directly from other users in a secure trusted manner (using Blockchain technology).

The Party Pass is the best way to ‘Play to Earn’ select Blankos/Accessories each season. Note that only select items in the Party Pass will be NFTs, with the remaining items being cosmetic only.

Additionally, there are occasional events which have rewarded Blankos or Accessories in the past. These have been thing such as build events and event gaming streams like E3 2021.

Currently the Marketplace is in Beta and only users in certain countries can take bank deposits with others limited to crypto only withdrawals. Click here for more information and to view if your country is supported.

Follow these steps to access the marketplace:

These were exclusive SXSW event cards that were distributed by Mythical Games in 2019. Once exclusive Blankos cards are given out, the only way to redeem the Blanko is in the game. Once redeemed in game, players can then choose to sell their Blanko on the official Marketplace when it is live. Please be aware that a Blanko card bought or sold outside of the game or official marketplace is outside of Mythical Games control and can potentially be a high risk for fraud or scams. Mythical Games does not officially authorize or provide any marketplace for buying or selling the physical cards, so to ensure a secure purchase, only buy and sell redeemed Blankos on our official store or marketplace

When you purchase a Blanko, an issue number is assigned to your Blanko, just like in other collectibles like trading cards. This issue number is your verified serial number that shows your place in line when buying your Blanko. The earlier you purchased, the lower the number.

The issue number for Blankos purchased will be displayed prior to opening the box in the details page. Click on the boxed Blanko in your Shelf and the issue number will be displayed with more details about your Blanko. You can keep a Blanko boxed, or unbox it to play with it. If you unbox it, you will lose the box forever. Just like the real world, others may value boxed Blankos over unboxed, but that is your decision to make. And as development advances, there may be future benefits to keeping your Blankos unboxed or boxed, so you will need to make a choice.


NFTs & Blockchain

Here’s a quick (brief) elevator pitch. Hopefully it’s not too confusing. In simple terms, Blockchain is a universal public list or ledger of information (called Blocks) which is shared across many computers. This ledger must be identical on each computer that it is shared across. If someone wanted to add information to the ledger, it must update the ledger and let all the computers know. The group of computers work together to validate the update. Once verified, all of the lists are updated to capture this change and the updated information (the block) along with that person’s identity is added to the ledger (the chain). Note that in this case, that person’s identity is a series of numbers. The ledger can be continually added onto but cannot be altered.

You may be hearing the abbreviation NFT being thrown around. NFT stands for Non-fungible token. It’s a type of cryptographic token which represents something unique such as art or collectibles and in the case of Blankos Block Party, it is assumed that all Blankos and accessories will be NFTs. The NFTs are tied to a blockchain which keeps a global trusted register of who owns which asset and verifies their identity.

NFTs allow for verifiable digital scarcity as well as digital ownership and also cross platform accessibility. In other non-blockchain related games, the developer would own the asset and thus if they were to close their server or your account was banned, that asset would be gone. This also meant that you were unable to sell the asset unless the developer allowed you to do so and thus you did not actually own the asset, the developer did.

With NFTs, you own the asset and thus you are able to trade it on a secondary marketplace without permission from the game developer. This also prevents duplicates as each NFT is unique with its own associated serial number.

Blankos Block Party is expected to be using a token standard of their own creation called dGoods which was developed by Mythical Games. dGoods is an open source and free standard for handling the virtual representation of items, both digital and physical, on the EOS blockchain led by Mythical Games. It is aimed at providing ownership and liquidity of digital goods on blockchain. dGoods is compatible across a growing number of blockchains with functionality that allows teams to easily create rich digital item economies.
At the moment is it expected that for Blankos Block Party, the dGoods standard will be tied to the EOS main chain. For more information on dGoods, visit dgoods.org. Mythical Games has stated that they are blockchain agnostic and may adjust this in the future based on the market.

Mythical Games has also stated that they’re aiming to launch a bridge to ETH mainnet after the Open Beta as well.

In interviews, Mythical Games said that for the time being they are the custodians of the private keys etc for your Blankos to try to assist the onboarding process and bring on mainstream adoption but later on you shall have access to those keys and then you will be free to sell on the Mythical Marketplace. Blankos Block Party is focused on being a AAA game with blockchain integration, rather than a full blockchain game.

Mythical Games has also stated that they’re aiming to launch a bridge to ETH mainnet after the Open Beta as well.

Blankos NFTs are linked to your account and stored on a Private EOS Blockchain as Mythical Games scale up the game. In parallel, they are working on ways to connect to public chains after launch to allow players to use their own wallets and private keys to store their Blankos NFTs.

Mythical Games has also stated that they’re aiming to launch a bridge to ETH mainnet after the Open Beta as well.


Play to Earn

Blankos Block Party provides players with a free Party Pass including an NFT (Non-Fungible Token). Party Passes are seasonal and reward you as your play the game by completing set challenges. There are three types of challenges, daily, weekly and seasonal. Finishing Challenges will increase progression on the Party Pass, eventually unlocking an NFT item/s. An example is the first Party Pass NFT from Season 0, Sergeant Poppy.

You can also participate in events like Build Challenges to earn NFTs. All NFT items can be sold to other players in the Mythical Marketplace.

Once you’ve downloaded and logged into the game, you view your challenges by going to:
Esc -> Party Pass -> Challenges.

Unfortunately, that NFT can no longer be earned but don’t worry, you can still pick it up in the Mythical Marketplace.

Also, the Party Pass resets to a new one every season with different rewards so you’ll be able to earn in the next season’s Party Pass. In the Challenges tab you can check when the current season’s Party Pass ends.

You can check an item’s NFT status by the following: In game, go to Esc -> Shelf and click on a Blanko to check if there is an NFT tag on the top-right corner.

You can go to the Accessories tab to check the NFT status of your accessories. – You can check NFT status of items in the in-game shop by locating the NFT tag.

Any items bought with Moola are not NFTs.

Most items in the Party Pass are not NFTs.

Consumables like Gumballs and XP Chips are not NFTs.

You can also check your Blankos/Accessory NFT on the Mythical Marketplace as well as their mint #.

Yes, Mythical Games has given away NFTs in the past for various special events. These have included the 2021 E3 Stream, FoLS Build Challenge, Valentine’s Build Challenge, Winter Build Challenge, Frostbyte Event, Early Signups (Camo J & Billy A Bones) etc.

To ensure you don’t miss another opportunity, make sure you follow the official PlayBlankos on Twitter or Discord. The Blankos Junction Discord also links to the official Blankos annoucements

No, there is currently no token, coin of cryptocurrency for Blankos. Blanko Bucks are a form of in-game currency exchanged for fiat, and Moola are the in-game grind currency.

If your Blanko/Accessory is an NFT, then it can be resold and thus holds value. The value however is based on demand and can depend on a multitude of factors, such as Serial Number, Total Quantity(scarcity), Event/Distribution, Age, Initial Price, Art Detail, Skill Tree and Level, Artist/Collab, Backstory, Boxed/Unboxed, MashUP design and Matching Accessories.

If you want to know how valuable a Blanko is, do your own research! Chat to others in the community and those who have access to the Mythical Marketplace and see what the going rate is.

Unboxing your Blanko can devalue or increase value depending on what you do with it. Things to consider:

  • Unboxing a Blanko is permanent. You cannot put Blankos back in the box.
  • You must choose a skill tree available in the current season when you unbox it.
  • You can level up/GradeUp your Blanko using Moola, Gumballs and XP Chips after you unbox it.
  • You can use the Blanko in MashUPs to change up it’s color or use it to mash other Blankos after you unbox it.
