Q:
What is this blockchain thing people talk about?
A:
We plan to explain more about this and what owning Blankos means in a future announcement. Blankos utilizes blockchain technology to give players proof of verified ownership and transaction history - simply put, this means more control for players over the things they buy!
Q:
What about my SXSW cards or Blanko I got last year for signing up?
A:
If you were awarded a free Blanko, it will show up in your account when the game launches. If you have SXSW Blankos cards, when you scan them, they will be placed in your account (again not until the game launches though!)

GAME PLAY AND PARTIES

Q:
What type of parties can I build?
A:
Currently Blankos features shooting, racing, and collection game styles (or combine them to make something brand new!). We will continue to add new building items, toys, and accessories ongoing to let you build crazy new parties.
Q:
Do I have to know how to code to build a Party?
A:
Nope, not a single line of code is needed! You simply build a Party, design and build out your parties, drop inventory and toys into it, and then configure what the rules of the game play are. Everything can be done with a game controller or mouse/keyboard and the game takes care of the rest! You can also just create a Party for players to hang out if you want. It’s all up to you.
Q:
Are there rewards for building cool or popular Parties?
A:
Yes! More info on this later but there will be rewards and unlocks for players that build awesome and popular Parties.
Q:
Is there a single-player playing option?
A:
Parties can be created as multi-player or single-player. Blankos love Parties with other Blankos, but single-players who want to fly solo can also explore, collect, and complete challenges in The Junction.

BLANKOS

Q:
What is a Blanko?
A:
Blankos are fun and mischievous collectible digital vinyl toys brought to life. Inhabiting The Junction, their own offbeat world, they love good vibes and good times!
Q:
Where can I see all the Blankos available?
A:
For now, we are going to leave this up to the community to catalog and show off. We imagine someone will launch the ultimate wiki soon but until then check out the #blankos-design (https://discord.gg/playblankos) channel on Discord.
Q:
Do Blankos have accessories or just skins?
A:
Blankos love accessories. Not only can you get different Blankos for your squad but you can trick them out with cool gear.
Q:
Do Blankos have abilities or powers?
A:
Yes, you will be able to choose abilities and level up your Blankos as you play and build. There will be more info on the abilities / powers soon.
Q:
Can I create my own Blankos?
A:
New Blankos are currently created through artist partnerships. We already have some ultra- talented vinyl toy artists like Jon-Paul Kaiser, Tara McPherson, Junko Mizuno, Pete Fowler, Kronk, and James Groman making Blankos for you to own. Players will have some awesome opportunities to customize Blankos with accessories and attachments that we will share in the future.
