Lately a new game has started being promoted pretty hard by some of the affiliates I follow on Twitter. When John Chow posted about it I decided to take a look and three hours of game play later, I’m addicted.
What is Empire Avenue?
Empire Avenue is a game where you buy and sell shares in social media profiles. It is a really cool simple idea. Your share price raises and falls based on your social interaction. You can connect your different social media profiles and they track your interaction. Right now you can connect these profiles to your account:
- Facebook Fan Pages
You can also connect your blog to your account once it’s “endorsed” by 5 people. Mine has been endorsed and now I am in the process of verifying it.
Create your Empire Avenue Account
Creating an account at Empire Avenue is very easy. Simply click here and connect with your Facebook. You can then create your ticker symbol for the game and get started. My ticker symbol is KLING.
I am trying to get my share price at 50+ EAVES (the currency for the game). Go create your account and buy me and you should start to profit right away (my current price is at 21.32). When you sign up I get 2,000 EAVES and you do as well.
I’ll buy you
If you create an account post your ticker symbol in the comments below so I can go buy some shares in you 🙂
I have always been a fan of the stock market and find this concept very interesting. We’ll see how much I can drive up my price and how long I actually play the game, but I can see myself spending a lot of my share time looking for good stocks to buy and working on my portfolio.
What do you think of the game?
