CryptoKitties celebrates first anniversary with new challenges
And that’s not the best thing—they’re calling it annipurrsary.
It feels like it was yesterday, but CryptoKitties was released one year ago. It has been quite a successful ride for them (psst, did you hear that they were featured on the last edition of our weekly pick?), so they are releasing a fresh set of limited set challenges and badges to commemorate the occasion.
In case you’re not a CryptoKitties enthusiast, challenges and badges are a somewhat new feature, designed to distinguish yourself from other breeders with flair. Each challenge set will have you breeding six specific Kitties, and once you complete it, a corresponding badge will be shown on your profile as a token of your hard work and good taste in breeding tokenized creatures. It’s kind of like a crypto version of these phresh pins with references to 90’s cartoons that you can find on Instagram and Etsy.
However, since this is a special occasion, you can earn TWO badges if you play your cards right. The first one of these badges—the puzzle cracker badge—is obtained after completing the Patternal Line Set Challenge. However, if you manage to do this during their annipurrsary week (Dec. 3 – Dec. 11), you will receive an additional badge: the paper annipurrsary badge.
This milkshake will bring all the boys to your yard, if you know what I mean.
The Kitties that you need to collect have a base level pattern and were released over the course of CryptoKitties’ first year. Here is the detailed list:
- King of the Jungle requires the jaguar pattern.
- Girl's Best Friend requires the ganado pattern.
- Artful Dodger requires the rascal pattern.
- Professor requires the rorschach pattern.
- Creature of the Night requires the vigilante pattern.
- Winter Wonderland requires the mittens pattern.
