Every now and then i like to write a few words about Steem Monsters. I might be the biased since i did invest quite a bit (for my standards) into the game but i still will say in a honest tone that the game outperformed my expectations.
Smart addition, one after another and at the proper pace and moment.
If i were to sum up this latest update into a sentence id say that they just added a whole new reason to stay logged in and play the game. Before all i did was the daily (maybe a tournament or two) and now i find myself doubling the time i spend ingame..
Its very different from the experience ive had on Next Colony or Drug Wars. A chore i dont enjoy doing everyday but i still do it because i fear missing out on something down the line. The first i still grind through a bit every day when i see my resources fill up and Drug Wars i completely gave up on. (Still hoping my 20k Future tokens will sell some day on obyte)
SM is starting to get a significant amount of polish as well. You can clearly see a new aesthetic take shape. Tie that in with the depth the game is starting to show and you end up with a enjoyable time for the player.
Just a few thoughts while i wait for my promo cards. 🙂

Ill probably keep most of the cards. Maybe sell the Javelin girl. I think shes around 1$.
Cant wait till the new cards come in. I spent around 550 STEEM on the Steem Monsters TRON crowdfund so im hoping to at least break even with my investment and what ever is left over will be upgrading my decks.
You can read the basic setup there, but this is the important bit here:
Increased Contribution Bonuses (any fractional amounts will be rounded up): Addresses contributing 2,500 SEED or more will receive a bonus 10% additional SEED promo cards Addresses contributing 5,000 SEED or more will receive a bonus 25% additional SEED promo cards Addresses contributing 10,000 SEED or more will receive a bonus 50% additional SEED promo cards
Not to go into detail and complicate things further, the 10 000 SEED (Around 2000 STEEM) contribution is obviously the best choice which is why a few folks have been smart enough to make a POOL for everyone interested in contributing to the crowdfund. I put in 2500 SEED myself (around 550 STEEM).
Im going to leave the spreadsheet link here that explains what you need to do to join in. There is also the possibility of the pool being one of the bigger donors which could lead to getting a number of max cards.

Some of you might have heard, some of you might hear now, that Steem Monsters announced yesterday that they will be doing another crowdfund tied into the eventual integration with the TRON blockchain and their rebranding of “Steem Monsters” into “Splinterlands.”
The crowdfund will occur on the 15th of April and it will be held on the TRON blockchain, specifically on the site SeedGerminator. All details on the tiers should be shown there in a few days. The native token is SEED but purchases with TRX will be possible. (Although apparently purchases with SEED will give bonus rewards) The reward tiers are yet to be established but according to the announcement we should know them at least 24 hours prior to the launch of the crowdfund.
Im not sure what your best bet for exchanging STEEM for TRX is (@blocktrades doesnt exchange Trx/ has Dogecoin though :D) but i would assume Binance.
FEW THINGS TO CONSIDER:
There are a few things to consider when deciding to participate in this. While i would generally consider Steem Monsters a safe investment, the fact that TRON is very new to plenty of folks, me included, anticipating the reaction of the TRON community to the project could be proven difficult. Will they dump all the cards, will the demand for cards increase. It is hard to tell sincethey might not be as personally invested into SM as much as STEEMIANS were during their first crowdfund.
Another thing to consider (if youre going into this with a speculator mindset) is the bull market that is apparently at hand. If STEEM price goes up drastically, you might find yourself losing some STEEM due to the wait period between the time you spend your STEEM and the time you get the cards. If STEEM goes up in price, the card prices will also go up to a point. The problem is that Steem Monster cards are tied to fiat in value which means that at one point it becomes a much better deal buying packs then spending money on the market, which leads to increased supply of the cards and a price drop. I would also like to add that the danger of this happening isnt that high in my opinion.
From the information i got from Yabapmatt, apparently we will be getting the card packs within a couple weeks after the crowdfund and the promo cards a couple months later, once the new website is built.
