Chimpers Going Adventuring
Julian Son

Staked Chimpers will be able to access their first Adventure within the Dojo on Thursday, Feb. 2nd at around 2:00 p.m. ET, according to a tweet from the official Chimpers account. 

The Deets

The first of six adventures starts Thursday with each adventure expected to take around 3 weeks to complete. There will be a 2-3 week break between each adventure game, during which prizes will be distributed and the Chimpers team will continue to work on optimizing the adventure game.

  • Every day each Chimper will roll a 🎲, and move the rolled number of steps along the board.
  • Each spot could result in a move forward, a move backwards, nothing, or even a reward.
  • The base 🎲 is 1-4, but for each bandana level above white, the dice will have an additional number added (yellow bandana has 5 numbers, orange bandana has 6 numbers, and the green bandana has 7 numbers).

It should be noted that participation in the adventure game - similar to the Dojo training - is automatic, and holders need not do anything besides stake their Chimpers.

❗ Why It Matters

The Chimpers team wanted to make something fun for Series 2 of TBAC (The Bored Ape Chronicles), since in TBAC Series 1, artworks were simple edition drops. The result? An adventure game in which all staked Chimpers have a chance to win artwork and other prizes. 

While not a "skill-based mint" in the vein of Yuga Labs' Dookey Dash, Chimpers Adventuring is another example of how adding gamification elements can keep holders and members of the community engaged and attentive.

🎬 Take Action

Chimpers holders that recently purchased one, or forgot to join, should stake their Chimpers NFTs to participate. Otherwise, they can still enter the adventure part-way through, as adventuring will always remain open.

10KTF Teases Deadfellaz, Chimpers, and RENGA Collab
Jason Bales

10KTF seems to be adding popular NFT projects Deadfellaz, Chimpers, and RENGA to its collection of "most grailed accessories."

"New Tokyo is in ruins, but one person’s rubble is another’s gold," the mysterious tweet from Wagmi-san, the ecosystem's craftsman, reads. "There’s opportunity here to close the loop, once I get set up."

The image shared along with the tweet shows iconic images from the three projects listed above.

10KTF is the name of Wagmi-san's shop, which is set up in New Tokyo and where the collection's digital wearables are created. The project has already worked with Bored Ape Yacht Club, Cool Cats, Forgotten Runes Wizards Cult, CrypToadz, Pudgy Penguins, World of Women, 0n1, Gutter Cat Gang, and Moonbirds.

Deadfellaz, Chimpers, and RENGA are likely the latest in its long string of collaborations. Each collaboration is notable due to 10KTF's exclusivity and mystique.

"His accessories are 1-of-1 digital objects that will only be created once," 10KTF's website reads. "Life is good. But he’s still required to pay for protection to keep his shop open. It’s better than the alternative. After what happened last summer, he can’t let that happen again."

Chimpers Dojo Battles Now Live
Staff Writer

Dojo Battles for Chimpers holders are now live according to a post from earlier this afternoon.

Holders who wish to participate in the Dojo Battles can enter their Chimpers NFT into the dojo on the official Dojo Battles website.

Participants will have their strongest stat Chimpers lead their team into battle. The battling is turn-based and whoever goes first is decided via a coin flip according to the official rules outline posted by the team. 

Once in battle, players must first use their base attack, and then after that, they will have the ability to perform their "Special Move" which are not limited to only attacks so players can strategize on the best use of their Special Move.

For Special Moves, all traits of a Chimpers NFT are grouped together in one category out of 21 which determines the animation of the Special Move.

Once a player loses all their health the battle is finished, after which the winner of the fight will receive a 4XP for every Chimper they own while losers will receive 1XP for every Chimpers they own.

Battles will take place every day at 2:00 p.m. ET.

Chimpers Genesis owners can now gain access to a fully animated version of their Chimpers NFT according to a tweet from the project

In order to gain access to the free animation file, users will need to join the Chimpers Discord and head to the "full set club" channel. 

No formal details were shared about the animation files, but the tweet seems to indicate that something more may be coming for the animated Genesis Chimpers that have been "brought to life." 

The animation files come a few months after the collection opened the doors to its "Dojo," an area in which users could train Chimpers NFTs to earn rewards. Chimpers is the secondary collection utilizing the Chimpers IP. The original, Chimpers Genesis collection is made up of just 97 NFTs and holds a floor price of 29 ETH at the time of writing.
