Brave Sponsors Upcoming Tournament in Gala Games’ Agricultural Simulation Game, Town Star, With $5000 in BAT
This post is a follow-up to our announcement, Brave and Gala Games Partner to Feature BAT Support in New Mirandus Game, from November 2020.
In November of 2020, Brave and Gala Games announced a partnership for Gala Games’ upcoming epic fantasy game, Mirandus, support for Basic Attention Token (BAT) on the Gala Games platform, and the unveiling of a limited set of 100 Brave x Gala Games Minotaur King Crystal Physical NFTs, sold exclusively on the Brave Swag Store. The Minotaur King collectibles were a major hit with Brave and Mirandus fans, selling out within a few short weeks.

BAT Tournament in Town Star
Brave and Gala Games are teaming up again, this time to bring fans the first-ever BAT Tournament in Gala Games’ Town Star, the blockchain-based agricultural simulation game from one of the founders of Zynga and some of the creative minds behind FarmVille and Words With Friends.
In Town Star, players become masters of urban planning and productivity as they create fully operational towns from scratch and compete against players from around the world to earn NFTs and Gala Coins.
The BAT Tournament, set to begin on Tuesday, March 16th, will give participants exactly 7 days to create a productive town in Town Star. Brave will sponsor the tournament with approximately $5,000 worth of BAT for prizes, and players will be required to hold a minimum of 20 BAT in their Gala Games account in order to participate.
At the end of the tournament, the BAT prize pool will be divided according to the tournament payout structure among the top 20 players with the best Town Star builds. Prizes will be paid directly to the winners’ Gala Games accounts.
