Are you into arcade games, puzzles, scavenger hunts, and winning crypto? Then you might want to check out Pineapple Arcade.
Pineapple Arcade is a collaborative effort by the Pineapple Fund, the developers behind the upcoming crypto RPG game Neon District, and the Atari movie. The Arcade is about opening up the space of crypto to the world, providing people free access to puzzling fun and donating to charity.

You can read more about the prizes and how to claim them here.
The Arcade games are completely free to play – you don’t even need to own any crypto. I took a spin at a few of them and was hit with all the nostalgia of old-school arcade games plus the new wave of crypto magic.
While I’m not the best at video games, I had a lot of fun trying out some of the booths. Coiin-Man was my favourite, a great spin on the classic Pac-Man game.
There are currently four active arcade games: Coiin-Man (sponsored by Nolan Bushnell and the Atari movie), Astrominer, DAO Invaders, and Hack & Hash (sponsored by Age of Rust). More games will be added in the coming months.
The puzzles scattered throughout the arcade are meant to be challenging pushes to your creativity. Everyone is encouraged to work together as the puzzles can be challenging for just one person to solve. For example, you may be asked to go somewhere specific in the world, and while you might not be anywhere close to that place, someone else on the internet will be. So get out there, meet fellow crypto enthusiasts, and have fun sleuthing! Prizes can easily be split among a group.
