This is a unique swamp-themed adventure game that anyone can play. Meaning, you do not have to be a BAYC holder to take part.

Significantly, the BAYC Sandbox metaverse experience also allows Bored Ape owners to play as their unique PFPs within the game.

Finally, the BAYC game is part of the wider Alpha Season 3 of The Sandbox. Season 3 will introduce over 90 unique metaverse experiences and more than 22 new brands to the popular metaverse platform.
