Updated: All blockchain games in Alpha, Beta and Pre-sale
What you should be playing, testing and spending on
Nothing is more exciting or more dynamic than the blockchain games market.
Each day throws up new projects, each with their own roadmap in terms of alpha, beta, pre-sale and launch.
Keeping track of all that activity is hard, but that’s what we’re attempting to do in this list, which will be regularly updated, so feel free to let us know if there are games and events we should be adding.

Games in Beta
One of the longest running blockchain projects, Ethereum-based virtual user-generated world Decentraland is now getting very close to release.
It’s currently still in closed beta for play testing, but all users can sign up and create an avatar.

Since the start of 2019, the Experimental team has been hosting a series of week-long tournaments in order to stress test its strategy game CryptoWars and the Loom Network it runs on.
Every weekend, the team hosts tournaments with increasing large prizes and there are also ongoing ‘Fighting Pits’, which are more limited battles.
Find out more at the CryptoWars’ website.
Gods Unchained (ETH/PC)
The highly anticipated TCG Gods Unchained is now in open beta. You can go right ahead and play what is in effect the fully launched game (just minus the big PR launch event).
You will need to download the game’s client, however.
