HIVE FUNAAB COMMUNITY MEET-UP: LEARNING ABOUT SPLINTERLAND GAME AS A NEWBIE
Hi friends, I am so happy to be here. It's my first time posting in this wonderful gaming community. It's like a dream come true for me.
The major aim of any community is the Growth of its members. This is the sole aim of our Hive Funaab Community. The community which is led by our amiable leader @starstrings01 was built on the core values of Learning, development and the togetherness of its members and this is the reason for our rapid growth as a whole. We now have over 20 community members in less than 2 months as a community.
As a community, we have always wanted to try out other activities happening here on the hive blockchain, especially games. We had no idea of where and how to begin not until Santa Claus came bearing gifts and sent us a guardian angel in person of @lemeonna.
@monioluwa met our guardian angel @lemeonna through his post about our last Christmas Community hangout weeks ago. He loved the fact that we are more organized and growth-centered so he decided to share his vast wealth of knowledge and experience on #Splinterlands and other related platforms (You can please check out @monioluwa post at the related post section).
We were so happy to have our dreams come true. We immediately formed an online group where we had our first online introductory meeting. We had an awesome time learning about #splinterland with @lemeonna and then we saw the need to quickly organize a physical meeting for community members staying in Lagos.
FACTS ABOUT OUR TEACHER @lemeonna
@lemeonna who is a ranked player on the #Splinterland game board has been playing the game for three (3) years (since 2018). He is a professional gamer with vast knowledge and experience, he is also a freelance graphics designer.
OUR DISCUSSION ON SPLINTERLAND GAME AND OTHER RELATED PLATFORMS DURING THE MEETING
We decide to meet at a convenient spot called PAPIEE’S MEATRO located at Yaba. Our meeting started around 10:30 am WAT. It was our first time meeting our teacher and friend, @lemeonna but the way we quickly bonded made it look like we had been long time friends.
