New STEEM based gaming platform -

in #introduceyourself4 years ago (edited)

Hello wanderers, my name is Thamrog Bottlebringer, I am a dwarf and the keeper of TavernGames.

I know, you will probably think that as a dwarf I should stay in a mine or fight somewhere with elves. You can't be more wrong... In the case of my clan, we have completely different tasks like serving pints of beer and listening to drunkard’s stories.

If you want to see it with your own eyes, come to my Tavern and you will be taken care of like nowhere else. The tavern was built by the Goblin prince who didn't know what to do with his wealth. He has got his own favorite game and you can play with him when you come to visit us.

What is TavernGames

  • new (probability) game platform on STEEM
  • 100% provably fair, transparent and random
  • login secure
  • fantasy lore with custom made graphics
  • items and league system
  • daily quests
  • on-boarding for new players
  • and more...

Provable Fairness and Transparency

TavernGames is 100% fair and transparent. For drawing results, we use a mechanism based on a key selected by the player and a key randomly generated by the server. Moreover, everything is placed in the blockchain so you can compare the results on your own!

You will find a tab with details on the Tavern's website.

Login security

In order to enter the tavern, you must first log in using the SteemConnect. As we do not save your keys or data, you can be sure that your account is safe with us.

Smoothly played games and the best user experiences

Playing our games you will enjoy smooth running games.

Game results are immediately displayed, so no need to refresh the web page or search for your result in different types of tables. What is more, due to the best graphics that are used, you could experiance the best time in Tavern..

If you are unable to access a personal computer, our website has been designed for games to be played on mobile devices, so can be played anytime and anywhere.

Goblin's Prince game

Try to predict if the amount of the Goblins’s next sack contains more, even or less gems than yours and win STEEM!

During the game you can use different Items to win more STEEM and double your ranking points!

How to play

To join the game, you will need special coins that can be purchased in our shop. However, it is not the only way to get them! You can find them in the chests received for daily quests, ranking position at the end of the season or for recommending us to your friends.

Presently, the maximum value of the coin is 5 STEEM, we are in the course of the pilot season so as to check how the Tavern works. After that period, we are going to introduce more denominations.

Lack of deposit

TavernGames do not use any deposit mechanism. You do not have to deposit your STEEM to play our games. You buy as many coins as you need to play and the reward goes directly to your STEEM account!


Using the Tavern, you can get rewards. They include different types of chests where you can find items allowing you to play the game, multiplying points scored in the ranking as well as the items increasing your chances to win!

Don't wait! Try out TavernGames, perform the everyday quests for 7 days for you to receive a special chest at the end of the week!

Spending the coins, you can score ranking points and at the end of the month and then you will receive a special reward! Inside the chest there are items returning the value of the coins you have used!

Recommend the game to your friends and enjoy yourselves together playing TavernGames. Perhaps you will be lucky and for the recommendation, you will be rewarded with an epic chest containing amazing items!

A chest for the beginner

If you decide to visit us, we have a surprise for you! Go to the tab marked onboarding and follow all the steps. Not only will you learn how the Tavern works, but you will also be rewarded with a chest for the beginner.

It contains a few items that will allow you to test our game FOR FREE!

Plans for the future

We are constantly improving our Tavern and we are also working on new games. Look for the information on! We'll meet again soon!

Meanwhile, see you in the Tavern! Bye for now, wanderer! Don't forget to leave your weapon at the door. We don't tolerate any brawls here, we only want to have good fun. :)

the game looks nice, if you want i can run a giveaway of your tokens, like im doing now for other projects, see more at -

Hi @kingscrown,
Sure! I'll check what's under the link and write to you on discord.

Greetings Thamrog, old friend!

After visiting your tavern i got some, maybe frequently asked, questions:

  • I swapped 24 0.1 tavern coins and one 1 TC and unless I am completely drunk on your fine ale I am sure that I got 25 sacks with 0.1 rewards.
    Is this intended, only maybe a bug, which has to be squashed by one of your beer glasses?
  • What treasures may a humble visitor of your tavern expect in the tempting reward chests?

Greetings from a far far land and please accept my appologies for all grammar and spelling mistakes :-)


Oh, it's you @hamsterpoweriii.
I thought you were gone after your last visit. You got so drunk, you were heading to the door, you knocked some barrels on the floor. But relax, I took the blame, the Goblin was already snooping around who it was.

I told you, don't drink those last pints at once...

But what did you want?

  1. You know what? I usually work sober, maybe you actually got something mixed up after a few beers. I'll check it out anyway.
  2. Now you will find tavern coins, bet boost, ranking points and ranking double points boost in your chests. Who knows, maybe there will be more in the future :)

Don't worry about your grammar! Who pays attention to this when have fun? :)

Thanks a lot for taking the blame.. I had a hard enough time explaining my stained cloths to my houseelf..

And thanks for your answers :-)

New day, sober and ready for some fun, i tried to mix the value of my gem sack order for a 2nd time. Worked smoothly and precise like a well payed goblin :-)

If you want to replace your houseelf with new one maybe consider taking part in the chest giveaway contest? It will fill your pockets!

Nah, he may be old, forgetful, grumpy, a bit lazy and forgetful, but somehow I have the feeling he is perfectly right for me :-)

But I still consider taking part in the contest :-)

Hi @taverngames

Welcome on steemit guys. Thanks for your introductin.

I just accidentaly bumped into your publication. Since we seem to share similar interests - I followed your account already,

post a bit to old to upvote. till next time
Yours, Piotr

Nice UI! And always good to integrate with existing projects.

Can you shed some light on why you chose a probability based game over the more traditional competition based games? Are they just easier to implement / more profitable?

Hi, @erickpinos
We're really glad you like it :)
Answering your question firstly we wanted to build a larger community around the Tavern, and then introduce competition games.
We'll even tell you that one of such games is almost ready :)

That's a very wise decision @taverngames

Glad to see that there are some solid devs, who also understand importance of building strong community around their project.

Good luck guys! :)

What is wrong with people, why so high downvotes? I'm sure this will help with onboarding new developers on steem...
@acidyo @ocdb @oracle-d

@acidyo @ocdb @oracle-d @theycallmedan @threespeak @trafalgar I wanted to ask a similar question. How developers are supposed to feel encouraged to even think about developing something on steem blockchain? How @taverngames devs are supposed to feel encouraged to continue their work? They just used THE ONLY way to make the fruit of their work visible for the community of the blockchain that their website is dedicated to. Why punish them for that so hard? Do you really think that the vote bots were used to make profits from this post? The world is not black or white, there are many shades of gray, but you guys seem not to be aware of that. In my humble opinion, your reaction to this post is way too far exaggerated.

I replied to cardboard down in this post, hoping we place more attention to letting promoters know about the burn features with beneficiaries in the near future as I understand that's difficult to know when you get here. No need to cry about it that much though, it's not like they can't ever post or promote again. A simple "resteem to help us get visibility if you like the project" would've probably gotten the same amount of attention as trending does nowadays.

I absolutely agree with you @imperfect-one

Downvote abuse is damaging steem blockchain more than helping :/

ps. Wlasnie zauwazylem ze jestes z Wroclawia :))

And most of the people seem to forget the fact, that the downvoters are voting on each other posts and post of their alt accounts. Sounds absolutely honest, isn't it?

Hi again @imperfect-one

Can I ask you for little favour? I joined contest called "Community of the week" with project I manage and I would be grateful if you could RESTEEM it and help me get some exposure and drop some encouraging comment :)

Link to my post: on steemit or on steempeak

Thanks :)
Yours, Piotr

What is wrong with people, why so high downvotes?

What's wrong with people, why complaining about those using their downvotes when barely any are? Just vote it up if you don't agree with the downvotes - which you did. No need to try and throw shade at the same time.

Unless you want people to think you're involved with this project or have other ulterior motives with that comment.

My only motives are to encourage new people and developers to build on steem. Vote from @tipu was for free because I really appreciate that there are people who take their time and money to make this platform valuable. Punishing them for doing so without any explanation in advance how this works is just wrong.

The post was downvoted from $120 to $30. Now it's a little better but still, clearly staying on trending for as long as possible is very important for services like these.

Now imagine that the dev is like "wtf, why I'm being punished, clearly those people don't want me here" - steem for sure will go far (and is going currently...) if we're gonna treat new people/devs(!) like this...

I did leave an explanation and I'm not the only one doing the downvotes, after the ocdb downvote and trail it was at $60 with plenty of trending attention. People are encouraged to develop and build here cause of the low uptime cost and the community waiting for new dapps to test them out, just because this one is another gambling dapp and aside from myself there were not many others testing it doesn't mean they should get free marketing on top of it all.

As I said if you felt it was overdownvoted you just had to upvote it, look at that other promoted post on trending that we can't even get under $90 anymore cause people like you don't even use their downvoting power. So maybe ease up on trying to guilttrip downvoters.

just because this one is another gambling dapp and aside from myself there were not many others testing it doesn't mean they should get free marketing on top of it al

I think you don't see where STEEM is now (#81 marketcap), where it is going and how badly it needs every new developer / dapp. Free promotion for new dapp is not the worst thing that can happen to STEEM... I understand what you want to achieve but you're missing the point that your are discouraging people. Who knows, maybe one day STEEM will be exactly how you want it to be - with you as the only user...

This is not low-effort post to milk the system, it's an actual dev who put his time and money to create something on this platform. And it's not some open-source shitty gambling app, you can see the custom made graphics and the overall vision.

As for resteems - his previous intro post used no promotion and it simply got lost, totally unnoticed by anyone. Paid promotion is the most basic way to get attention and it should be in build into the very core of steem. Why it's not - I have no idea.

Who knows, maybe one day STEEM will be exactly how you want it to be - with you as the only user...

You clearly don't seem to know who you're talking to. But sure go ahead pretending to be the good guy who cares about new Devs on steem while discouraging people to use their downvotes. My goal here was to encourage them to burn rewards in the future like kryptogames did the other day by promising to burn post rewards and I voted that up "also for free" ( you're very generous btw ).

Honestly not even gonna bother reading the rest of your comment after that first shit. Keep using our marketcap rank to push your agenda while never using downvotes on your bid bot and we'll see how fast we'll turn into the shit we were pre HF.

I don't think I have the right to take money from other's people posts using SP that is not mine.

No idea why you get angry but it tells me that you might be misjudging a lot of things because of your negative emotions. You might be thinking that you're always 100% right, but you're not. No one is. The problem is that the damage you're doing sometimes is hard to fix - discouraged people probably won't come back. And you can tell yourself that those are only to milk the system and they're not worth to be here but as far as I know - everyone makes mistakes.

If you want to punish unaware users for their first, not intended mistake by taking 75% of their payout and the ability to promote their apps on steem - it's your call.

I was just wondering about it too @cardboard

crazy those whales

Hey @taverngames, Welcome to the steemit blog!

That's not nice.

Downvoting content like the one you did @theycallmedan does simply look like downvote abuse :/

I respect your work, because you bring some value to steem blockchain. But sometimes flags you do are

Plus do you expect your victims to read entire posts explaining your downvoting policy? Should they try to guess which point of your own policy did they triggered?

Awful :/

Why don't you use Keychain? Would be much more convenient

Edit: Nvm, I see you use it for the actual game

Hi, @okean123
As you noticed, we use keychain in the game (in future games too).
Only during payment it is not possible to use it, because it does not work properly on mobile devices.

Shall check this out !

Hi, @marucat
It's nice that you like it :)

Who is behind this game?

Hi, @cwow2
We're new to Steem.
We noticed the potential in this blockchain and decided to create this project right here. We have a lot of ideas and plans to develop the Tavern.
We hope that you will like our efforts :)

So the dev behind this game doesn't have a steem account therefore no trust with the blockchain?

Developers have accounts on the steem but I don't know if it can tell you anything.
We have been monitoring steem since April 2019, we want to be known as TavernGames and make it a brand.
As the best form of trust is that we do not store user keys anywhere by using SteemConnect, and we do not have a deposit. We send prize payments directly to your account.
Additionally, you can check us out for free by finishing onboarding and receiving a beginner's chest.

Is @roelandp the dev then? :)
or even related to the product?

No, we don't know who is he 🙂@imperfect-one recommended Steem to the head Tavern developer.

I was just looking at the recovery account for taverngames ^^ Which is an account whos recovery acc is roeland

Login via mobile/FF does not work. After steemconnect forwards back, I'm still not logged in. Tried with active key

Hi @ash,
Could you join us on our discord channel ( I will try to help you solve this problem.
Just tried on mobile/FF and works as expected.

Mh I'll try again later, maybe it's a steemconnect problem then on my side. Don't have discord here, but thx

Hello @ash,
Probably yes. I tried on two different devices and it's ok. Try later and let me know if you need help.

Ya, I have general problems now with steemconnect and mobile... No idea why tho 😭

Works now :) looks good, can I get a rookie chest to try it please? :)

Yes sure, go to onboarding and finish all steps. If you'll have more problems just ping us.

Was fun but got boring rather quick, hope to see more features added in the future. Downvoted due to the profitability of bid bots and this post isn't burning any of the rewards for the marketing/visibility.

We have a lot of ideas for future development. We would like to implement them all. But it depends on the response of the community.
We hope you had fun at the Tavern.

Keep in mind that new users/developers are not aware of the forced rules of burning rewards when promoting - those rules are nowhere written and you can't expect new guys to know this. Hitting so hard with downvotes is not a nice welcome for new people.

Also there is no other way to gain visibility on steem, and it's not this guy's fault that steemit is so incompetent when it comes to creating promoting tools on this platform.

Well I doubt it's the first time they are gonna promote and there are other ways to gain visibility - one thing that exists pretty much anywhere and most people are aware of it and could ask for in their posts - resteems.

Congratulations @taverngames!
Your post was mentioned in the Steem Hit Parade in the following category:

  • Pending payout - Ranked 2 with $ 72,11

It's another game that depends on lucky completely

Give us chance and you'll see more games, not only probability based games.

oh thank you , it seems i jumped to conclusions .

welcome to steem community...

Very interesting! I have always though that any of these games built on these platforms SHOULD pay in a more commonly coveted token (Like STEEM)! Will definitely check this out.

We pay in STEEM. You buy as many coins as you need to play and the reward goes directly to your STEEM account.

does this service comply with federal and state gambling laws?

Happy flag day, unwashed human.


Have you not checked the purchased votes?

How someone dare to promote his dapp on steem... ;)

If they want to promote via bots then they can decline rewards. Or purchase banner ads.

39.6 USD has been spent to promote this content using Steemium .
