How To Get On The VeeFriends FriendsList
First and foremost, what is the Friends List? Basically, the Friends List is the VeeFriends version of a whitelist. At 1 PM EST on April 5, the project randomly selected 32,000 Book Games tokens and their corresponding wallet addresses to mint Series 2 NFTs during the Friends List mint.
Book Games is a layer 2 NFT project with 125,000 burnable tokens in a game linked to Gary Vee’s new book. The selected Book Games holders could mint their allocated number of NFTs for sure during the Friends List window starting in April 2022.
It is important to note that during this mint, you do not have to burn your Book Games tokens. However, you will still have to pay the mint price and gas fees. In addition, you won’t get any of the new characters or Spectacular types.
Then, those who hold a VeeFriends Series 1 NFT can claim a Series 2 NFT of their current character for free on April 12. In addition, Series 1 holders will get exclusive access to a special character “pose” called “Evolving”. If you don’t own a Series 1 NFT, you have two days left to get one from the secondary market!

VeeFriends 2 Trading Cards
Recently, VeeFriends revealed one of the utilities of Series 2—brand new collectible trading cards! Everyone who mints Series 2 NFTs during the primary sale has the option to claim the cards for free for each NFT they mint. Called “Compete and Collect”, VeeFriends created the cards in partnership with the leading trading card company, Zerocool.
All primary buyers are eligible to claim the trading cards, irrespective of whether they mint through Friends List, Series 1 claim, or the public mint. However, it is important to note that these cards won’t be available for secondary buyers or any time after the primary sale.
Now, let’s go into the details. Each box contains a random selection of 52 cards featuring a Series 2 character. Each card will also have a character score made up of its Aura, Skill, and Stamina. The rarer the card, the higher will be the score.
So, how does the game work? Two players start the game with an equal number of cards. As the game begins, each player has to flip their cards one by one. Then, the player with the highest score can take the other player’s card. Finally, the player with the maximum number of cards, and in turn, the highest score, wins the game.
There’s also a pre-reveal game!
To make things fun, VeeFriends introduced a pre-reveal game as well. This is primarily because of the extended gap between the Series 2 Friends List mint and the Public Mint. Titled “The Journey with GaryBee”, the game features GaryBee, who is on an adventure. Your goal is to help GaryBee travel as far as possible, quite similar to the hit Flappy Bird game.
During the journey, there are certain VeeFreinds characters you must avoid. If you hit one of these characters or if GaryBee falls down, you go back to the beginning. Once you finish the game, don’t forget to share your score on social media and the VeeFriends Discord! You can play the game on Series 2’s OpenSea page.
