Playing the Sneaker Games
Versus Game: Accessible from the Home screen, you'll compete against the computer in this game. Two rounds involve picking the most valuable sneaker, and using cards from your collection. Winning fills up box slots as rewards.
Mini-Games: Participate in mini-games to earn coins and XP. These games involve guessing release dates, identifying sneakers, evaluating highest value, and determining higher or lower values.
Earning and Spending Coins
Completing Challenges: Challenges such as opening a specific number of boxes or collecting certain sneakers will earn you coins.
Testing Your Sneaker Knowledge: Most of the knowledge-based challenges will be on sneaker names/silhouettes or their real-world value.
Purchasing Packs: Use your coins to open packs (or boxes) from the store. There are seven different types of boxes, with more expensive ones yielding better rewards.
Understanding and Collecting Gems
In the Boxed Up, gems are an important form of currency alongside coins. They come in three colors: blue, purple, and orange, each representing a different level of rarity and difficulty to obtain.
Blue Gems: These are the most common gems and are relatively easy to collect. You will frequently come across blue gems in your sneaker journey.
Purple Gems: Purple gems are more difficult to acquire compared to blue gems. Collecting them often requires a bit more effort and strategy.
Orange Gems: The rarest and most precious of all gems are the orange gems. These are quite hard to get, making them a valuable commodity in the app.
How to Earn Gems:
There are several ways to earn gems within the app:
Completing Trades: By successfully trading sneakers with other players in the marketplace, you can earn gems as part of the trade deal.
Daily Challenges: Fulfilling daily challenges is another great way to earn gems. These challenges change daily, providing new opportunities to increase your gem collection.
Scratch Cards: Completing specific sneaker collections can earn you scratch card rewards. By collecting these specific cards, you have a chance to win a variety of rewards, including gems.
Remember, gems are crucial for opening certain special packs, including the weekly box drop, which might contain a limited edition green card. So, it's always beneficial to keep an eye out for opportunities to earn gems!
Determining Rarity and 'Heat'
Rarity is determined based on the market value or retail price of a sneaker - the higher the value, the greater the rarity. 'Heat' indicates the hype level of a shoe, considering factors like retail value, market value, brand, and silhouette.
Season Pass and Earning XP
You can earn XP by completing season challenges and trades, and by playing mini-games and Versus. Keep an eye on social media channels for any codes for XP. As you level up in the season pass, you will get better rewards.
Buying, and Selling on the Marketplace
On the marketplace, you can buy and sell sneakers with other players using the coins earned from games and challenges.
When selling, it is a good idea to search for a similar shoe on the market to get an idea of what you should list it for. If your item doesn't sell after a few hours then you can relist it at a lower price.
Participating in Weekly Sneaker Drops
Every week, there's a special drop of a pack (or box) that usually can be opened with gems. This pack might contain a rare numbered, limited-edition green card.
