Steem Monsters For Poor People
Since "I love poor people" I decided to host a regular game to help people that don't have a lot of money to enjoy the Steem Monster experience too! It will be a way to learn about Steem Monsters and also over time earn enough points to get your own Steem Monsters Starter Deck so you can play too!
Here's the simple game, its called Pick The Right Monster:
Rules: Pick the Steem Monster that correctly fits the description given. If you correctly pick the right monster, you will get a point. At the end of October, the person with the most points will get a free starter pack. The 2nd place through 10th place winners will win a few free cards (10 points minimum). Everyone that gets at least 10 points by the end of October will get a Steem Monster card.
Game 7 - Pick The Monster With Shield
In the game the monsters will have many different ways to attack you. Sometimes its with their actual attack (Melee Attack, Range Attack, or Magic Attack), and other times its done through their "abilities". Note: to find the abilities you can see them on the Stats page of the card.
A great ability to have for a tank is the "shield" ability. The Shield will decrease the attack value on you from other monsters that have MELEE ATTACK and RANGE ATTACK. So if you have a monster that has the ability to use "shield", then he/she will last a lot longer and stay alive. I'm not sure of the exact reduction, but it appears to be close to half of the normal hit value, so it essentially gives your tanks at least twice as many hits it can absorb. This is handy indeed :D ... Also note that if you also have a healer on your team, this could be even more valuable as those heal points recharge in some cases faster than your monster is getting hit. A very nice little feature indeed!
Pictured below are 5 cards and their stats page. Please identify by letter which one is most likely to be the monster that has "shield" as an ability. Put the answer in the comment section!
A. Spineback Wolf
B. Spineback Turtle
C. Silvershield Knight
D. Chromatic Dragon
E. Silvershield Paladium
Remember you don't have to invest in packs to play the game, you just have to show interest and there are many ways to build your own deck!
Please note, there are no upvotes or resteems required! This is a supposed to be a fun game that will help to introduce you to Steem Monsters and help you also build your decks a little!
