    Will node operators get daily TOWN distribution?


    Yes, if they complete their node requirements for that day.





    NFTS & Play-to-Earn


    Will you only be able to earn with placed NFTs?


    Yes. You will also need Gala Power and Town Power.


    Will skins also earn TOWN?




    What is the difference between a placeable NFT and one you apply?


    Placeable NFTs are buildings or bots that do tasks for you or allow users to hold more items in storage. Skins are NFTs that you apply that (may) give you bonuses. Only certain placeable NFTs earn TOWN.


    Will there be a max number of VOX or NFTs I can place in my town? What happens if I place more NFTs than my power Level?


    A user can place as many NFTs as they possess. But they will only earn from the NFTs covered by Town Power and Gala Power.


    Will VOX need to be placed by a road?


    Yes, and certain NFTs need to be by a road as well.

    KrisVirgo HF-06 |HF

    What can my VOX earn?


    Certain VOX are placeable and can earn TOWN in Town Star. The rarities are determined by rarity.tools and the amount of TOWN they earn will vary.


    Will VOX placed have proximity effects?




    Will the Farmbot be usable in the future?




    Do my NFTs need to be placed while doing the Daily Challenge?


    For the purposes of play-to-earn, your earnable NFTs only need to be in your town when you collect your TOWN earnings.


    What is the NFT transfer cool down?


    Each time an NFT is transferred, it incurs a cool-down period to prevent abusive behavior.




    Purchasing NFTs from a 3rd party marketplace such as OpenSea or transferring them from one wallet to another will cool down the NFT transfer.


    NFT transfer cool-down does not incur when purchasing NFTs directly from Gala Store.


    How long is the NFT transfer cool down?


    The NFT transfer cool-down may take up to 48 hours.



    KrisVirgo HF-06 |HF

    The higher the level a person has, the more NFTs they can place down. Gala Power includes GALA and game tokens such as TOWN that may be in a person’s Treasure Chest or inventory.


    This level is updated in real time, but a browser refresh may be required to view an updated value.


    Withdrawing GALA or other tokens does immediately affect the Gala Power an account has.


    In order to get more Gala Power or to learn about leveling up, please read this article to learn more: Calculate a Gala Power Level with Gala Power

    Other notes:

    Leaderboards for the Community Meta Competition are being verified now, as are the queries for the June NFT for playing Town Star, and those rewards should be out early next week.


    heart Lastly, we just want to say how much we appreciate everyone who has filled out the survey so far. We have attached some word clouds we built from the feedback we’ve received to date. Two of them are specific to how long those players had been playing Town Star, and the last one is the top 50 words overall. We created them to get a high-level quick view of everyone’s favorite parts of Town Star. We will share more insights as we continue looking at the data.

    TownStar Competition starts  here’s a few friendly reminders!


    Don’t forget to take your gasoline off of auto trade, unless you want to sell gasoline right out of the gate.

    Copy your desired town name into your clipboard before it starts, then you can just paste it into the town name area after selection.


    Give your browser a nice reload before it goes live, if you get stuck at 60% go back to app.gala.games and re-launch town star from the play button there.


    Make sure to choose the correct server, Competition Server.

    KrisVirgo HF-06 |HF



    Flour Storage and Feedbot have been distributed!


    You do not need to mint these items in order to use them inside Town Star. You will only need to mint them in order to transfer or sell them.


    They may not be placeable in the game just yet, but should be soon. Thanks for being patient

    Town Crush | Gala Gold $400k Challenge

    Complete the Challenge before July 8th to get a share of a $400,000 GALA prize pool.

    KrisVirgo HF-06 |HF

    Gala Gold members who complete all 12 levels before July win.

    Every Town Star Egg Storage NFT sold adds $50 to the June Mayhem Town Crush reward pool.

    Spend your TOWN on a Town Crush Bag o’ Stars or a Town Star Egg Storage building.

    Town Crush reappeared on the Gala Games platform yesterday afternoon, which means you can go play now. If you can complete all 12 levels, you have a bright Town Crush future, and there may be some rewards in it for you.


    The Delayed Mayhem of Town Crush

    Many of you are already aware of the interesting purpose behind your favorite new match 3 game, but we’ll catch the rest of you up right now.


    Town Crush was first built to test the functionality of the new blockchain being created by Gala, currently known only as Project GYRI. The game was literally designed to test operations on the new blockchain, as well as to seek out and eradicate any bugs or issues that came up.


    Shortly after Town Crush May Mayhem began, some issues were discovered that led to the remainder of the challenge being postponed and the game removed from the platform once again. The team has been hard at work fixing these issues, and now it’s time to pick up where we left off.

    KrisVirgo HF-06 |HF

    June… er, July Mayhem?

    It’s not about the month, people. The important thing is you get to sink your brains into the time-warping, all-absorbing match 3 bliss that is Town Crush once again. The next important thing is that if you are a Gala Gold member, you’ll have a chance to Crush your way to a share of a $400,000+* reward pool.


    *Every Egg Storage building sold increases the reward pool by $50.


    You have until July 8th at 12pm PT tom complete the challenge.


    The Challenge: Complete All 12 Levels

    This is easier said than done, so don’t put it off. The $400,000 GALA reward pool will be split by all Gala Gold members who have completed the Challenge.


    Gala Gold Requirement

    To be eligible for a share of the $400,000 reward pool, your account must be upgraded to Gala Gold before the end of the Challenge on July 8th.


    This means that if you have not yet paid the $50 upgrade for lifetime membership to Gala Gold, you can still try your luck at the Town Crush Challenge. If you succeed before the 8th, then you can upgrade knowing you’ll see some rewards soon after.

    KrisVirgo HF-06 |HF

    Upgrade to Gala Gold Now

    Give Yourself a Boost

    If you use up all your lives (hearts), they’ll recharge up to 5 at a rate of 1 life every 5 minutes. So if you have patience and skill, you may be able to budget out your free lives and complete the Challenge with no assistance.



    Bag o’ Stars

    If you’re like most people and don’t have time for patience, then you can buy a handy Bag o’ Stars for some TOWN in the Gala Games store.


    The Bag o’ Stars will only set you back about $25 (payable in TOWN only) and as you can see below, you can buy a lot of lives with those 25,000 Stars!

    KrisVirgo HF-06 |HF

    Town Star Egg Storage

    Another way to get your hands on some bonus Town Crush Eggsecutioners during this event is to purchase one of the new Egg Storage buildings for Town Star.


    You can store up to 40 Eggs in this handy Town Star building, which is only purchasable with TOWN. Just by owning one, you’ll get two additional Eggsecutioners per round in Town Crush during the June Mayhem Challenge event!


    Pumping up the Prizes

    For every Egg Storage building sold, another $50 will be added to the total Town Crush reward pool. Those fifties can add up quick!

    Once Upon a May

    …in the magnificent land of Gala, there was a great festival known as May Mayhem. With prizes and rewards galore showered upon new players and old owners alike, May Mayhem was a time of joyous celebration for the people of Gala.


    Although the terrifying mythical bears of winter hungrily stalked the woods surrounding the land of Gala, the Galaxians knew how to keep the bears at bay. It was their laughter, their lights, and their community. It was their sense of freedom and empowerment, their recognition of the abundance around them and their collective vision of a brighter future.

    Town Star Economic Updates

    Beginning on July 19th, Town Star Play-to-Earn will begin a series of major economic upgrades, temporarily pausing TOWN distribution.


    The flagship Web3 town builder might have recently won the Best Blockchain Game of the Year award, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still huge room for improvement and growth. We are all fortunate to have witnessed Town Star’s rise as one of the earliest and most rewarding play-to earn games out there.


    As we now guide Town Star to its next evolution as the world’s greatest Web3 sim game, there are some important developments and upgrades to be made. By listening closely to community feedback, we have determined that the best time is now to begin making these large and necessary updates.

    KrisVirgo HF-06 |HF

    Beginning on July 19th, all TOWN distributions to players and Node operators will temporarily stop.


    During this temporary TOWN pause, we will focus on evolving the Town Star in-game economy, making tech improvements as well as adding features to the game. This has been discussed at length in the #townstar_discussions channel in our Discord community.


    This change, while it is unexpected for some, is a wonderful thing for Town Star players, as well as for the health of the TOWN economy. With this change, we have doubled the size of the Town Star team and brought in a seasoned industry expert, Mark Skaggs [WIKIPEDIA LINK], to lead this winning team. We are also in the process of switching the game development engine from PlayCanvas, which is client-side authoritative, to Godot, which is server-side authoritative (an important part of stopping cheats, scripts, and hacks).


    We are investing heavily in Town Star and would like to see it become the first Web3 game to achieve large-scale mass adoption. This step, while temporarily painful, is necessary to achieve that goal.


    We will continue to run both the daily challenges and competition but changes should be expected along the way as new systems are added and tested. Town Points earned during this period will not result in any TOWN distribution and will be erased at the end of each day. Those who operate Town Star Nodes are under no obligation to continue to do so, but please know that Nodes are a key part of the future of Town Star.


    This is a big project and it will take some time to get there, though we’re confident that this pause will allow our team to evolve the in-game economy, add more fun features, and upgrade our game engine to support an amazing future for all Town Star players.
