I have been a loyal fan since the beginning of the Splinterlands or Steemmonsters as the game was called back then. I even put some money in the initial fundraiser and the Kickstarter which earned me my cute dragon whelp
I also own 7 starter packs with accounts that are being played for me by people in Venezuela where we split the profits 50/50. This is a true play to earn story for them.
Along the way, I bought some more packs that got me some promos and kept adding to my collection. And I did realize in the back of my mind that these cards had value but did not pay that much attention.
Yesterday I logged into peakmonsters.com out of curiosity because there seems to be a buzz going on about the game. Even @tarazkp is buying packs and playing. To my surprise, my cards seem to have 20x in value. I estimate having spent roughly 2000 USD on the game along the way.
Now if you compare this newly launched SPS token with the most popular play-to-earn tokens from AXIE infinity we can see we still have a very long way to go.
For now, I am holding on to the majority of my cards, maybe putting some really rare ones on the market for a silly price to see if anyone bites, and then using my experience to buy back more.
But saying I am happy with my investment in the game is an understatement
Lets all play to earn
