In this game, you can start out with a basic character or purchase one from the market and start feeding, resting, waking and battling your monster to greatness. In this game, it’s consistency that counts to create a balanced and mature character. Official Homepage
In this game, the point is to get into a round early and have a lot of people join in after you. If someone buys a noob after you it means to earn a credit. Conversely, if you are the last one you lose the value you put in. The game goes in rounds and every one who buys a noob on that round extends the time for around 30 secs. Official Homepage
In this game, you spend EOS to roll digital dice for a chance to win tokens. The house has an edge so your tokens will always slowly or quickly depart. The smart contract has an interesting twist. The user can set their odds of winning to a high or low probability but as the odds go higher it drops the payout down. This game is the most popular blockchain app of all time as of this writing. Remember gambling is addictive so if you do play understand you should only play with what you can afford to lose. Official Homepage
