Quick Introduction to the Upland Game
Upland.me is a self-described ‘metaverse’ game that resembles a 21st-century version of the classic Monopoly board game. The game is built on the EOS mainnet blockchain.
The game allows you to buy, sell, trade, and build properties as NFT’s in a virtual incarnation of real-world cities. You can choose from a number of US cities with more planned for the future and no doubt on other continents too.
The game uses UPX as its currency which you can purchase with cash via PayPal or crypto. You begin with Visitor status and you begin by buying plots of land or properties. You should choose properties marked as FSA, or ‘Fair Start Act’. FSA properties are much cheaper than non-FSA properties. FSA properties are usually, 2k — 6k UPX so you can begin building your glorious portfolio!
Once you level up to Pro status, one up from Uplander status, FSA’s are no longer available to you and you have to trade with other players or send your block explorer to unminted non-FSA properties (not a huge number available in older cities).

What is Spark in Upland?
Another recent addition is Upland Game Spark. You can use Upland Game Spark to build structures on your properties such as a Small Town House. Be aware that you cannot buy or sell Spark. You can however rent Spark out for UPX or USD to other players to build with. You will receive a limited amount depending on your status and can only acquire more during special Spark Up events.
How to use Upland Game Spark
You can simply apply Spark to your own properties by selecting a build such as a Town House. Spark hours is the time it takes to complete a build. Another option is to join a community construction group on discord such as the renowned Upland Construction Company where you can earn UPX by renting it out as part of a construction team.
Once a building is complete the Spark returns back to you so you can stake it on another building project. You can bank payments or request payment using a burner property. This involves selling you a property at a low markup and then buying it back at cost plus the rental payment from the Construction Company owner.
