NFT games are taking the gaming world by storm. Consumers are starting to put down their traditional controllers to pick up NFT titles such as The Sandbox. Players are gradually realising the consumer-friendly nature of these games, being drawn in by their play to earn features.

Gamers are often used to publishers and large companies, taking advantage through monetisation. Games built on the Blockchain offer a chance to remove these predatory monetary policies. NFT games are leading the way in this regard. This article will outline the five best NFT games you need to know about in 2022.

Duelist King

Duelist King is a multichain NFT card game powered by its in house Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), alongside several other features. The game seeks to transform how NFT communities buy, trade and use decks in their game.

Alongside the DAO, which will enable players to be at the forefront of decision making, Duelist King features a decentralised random number generator (DRNG). DRNG will ensure that players have a fair and equal chance of getting NFT cards. Duelist King will release in March 2022, with its next batch of cards releasing next month.

The Sandbox

The Sandbox is one of the most popular games on the market and has been around for some time. It is a virtual world that lets you buy virtual real estate known as LAND and buy in-game items through its in house cryptocurrency known as SAND.

The Sandbox is looking to be the gold standard of what a virtual world, realised by the Metaverse, can be. This year, The Sandbox is looking to expand its offering with more LAND sales. Within The Sandbox, you can also buy NFTs, making the game a leader in Metaverse technology.


Decentraland is another game like The Sandbox leading in virtual world immersion. Much like its competitor, The Sandbox, Decentraland enables players to explore a virtual world at their leisure and connect with friends. It also uses its own cryptocurrency (MANA), allowing you to buy digital assets on a whim.

Decentraland is one of the prominent forces in the Metaverse and will be an important player as we progress through 2022.

Nest Arcade

Nest Arcade, often called the Netflix of arcade gaming, is a platform that enables you to play the best NFT titles from the comfort of one platform. You can choose your favourite play to win games from Nest Arcade, making it easier to access them.

Nest Arcade profiles these games and has its own games built on the platform. Similarly, the platform has its very own NFT marketplace. This year looks bright for Nest Arcade, as it sets to release the demo of its NFT game Metabirds.

Axie Infinity

If you haven’t heard of Axie Infinity, then you have been living under a rock. Axie Infinity is an NFT game developed by Sky Mavis. The game is a trading and battle game that allows you to breed, battle and trade creatures known as Axies. Like other games on this list, it uses a play to earn feature that enables players to make while playing. It is incredibly popular, especially in the Philippians and likely to reach even more heights as we get further into 2022.



A blockchain RPG built on the Ethereum chain, Ethermore, uses NFT characters for progression. Ethermore has interesting mechanics and beautiful looking graphics. This is one to look out for in 2022.
