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. As a new starter, you should choose properties marked as FSA, or ‘Fair Start Act’, as these are marked at a lower price. 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).

How to Win Treasure Hunts in Upland
One way to get more UPX is to complete treasure hunts. Treasure hunts allow you to search for hidden UPX or Spark within a given radius of your block explorer.
PRO TIP: Most players are US based so to increase your chances of winning Upland treasure you may need to set the alarm for 1 am PT as the number of players is significantly reduced during the night. If you’re in the UK that’s 8 am so a quick treasure hunt before breakfast!
You can spawn a free personal treasure hunt once a day. Thereafter the UPX costs are dependant on which city you are in. In some cities, treasure hunts may not be available. Other treasure hunts, such as exclusive, require hunting treasure in competition with other players. The first one to find the treasure wins. The treasure will take three hours to recharge before becoming available again.
PRO TIP: Treasure hunts in Upland cost UPX as you need to pay for each ‘send’ to a property. When buying property try to purchase them so you have them spread across the city as it is free to send to your own properties and will save you burning your own UPX in the long run.
