Hey Splinterlands fans
I'll start off by saying that I wasn't the earliest adopter of the game, nor was I a major player or investor. In fact, gaming on the blockchain didn't really interest me at first. I was here for the steem baby, give me the steem! The game was hard to avoid in its initial launch back then, known as Steem Monsters and steemians were shilling the shit out of it.
I'd entered a few competitions won some packs or the odd single card and then I thought what the hell, but some cash behind it and get in on it myself, really what is there to lose?
So I purchased a starter pack and a few booster packs and started playing to collect my daily rewards. I tried out a few tournaments but I wasn't any good to get far enough to win prize money so I just sort of put that one on hold while I added more cards to my collection to build my deck and improve my chances of moving up the ranks and picking up more season rewards.
I'll play a few battles a day to win my daily reward and rack up some DEC in the process. Which I would use to buy the odd card that I needed to level up certain monsters
Let's look at the numbers
My total spend on the game so far is:
- 5.304 STEEM
- 0.250 STEEM for tournament entry fees
- 17.635 SBD
I can't remember what the steem price was at the time I spent it but let's say I've roughly spent about $25 - 30 on the game
So far my deck is now worth $410, that's a 1366% ROI, not too shabby might I add. Especially when you consider I do the bare minimum.
