Before Purchasing a Spellbook

Splinterlands is free to try initially, giving players a chance to learn the mechanics and begin collecting cards before purchasing the Summoner's Spellbook. those who are not upgraded miss out on several important features of the game.

  • No Rewards Can be Earned - Players do not earn SPS rewards or Glint for battling.

  • No Access to Tournaments - Only players who have purchased a Spellbook have the opportunity to participate in or create tournaments through the Splinterlands tournament interface.

  • No Trading on the Market - Because a player without a Spellbook has not created a valid Hive wallet/account, they are unable to make transactions on the market from a free-to-play account, like buying or selling packs and individual cards. If a user has an existing Hive account, they would still need to purchase a Spellbook to upgrade their account, but they will be able to make transactions on the market.

  • No Access to Guilds - Players will not be able to create or join guilds.

  • Assets Cannot be Held In-Game - Without a Spellbook or an existing Hive wallet, players cannot hold assets, such as cards or tokens, in-game.
